On your right, Frost, on your left Doyle, otherwise known as "My Darkness". All three of them reside in the Unseelie Court.

Characters from Laurell K Hamilton's Merry Gentry books.

/love If you would have made Doyle as dark as he's supposed to be there would have been no distinction between his clothes and face. Makes for beautiful imagery when read, but difficult to translate into a drawing. Would have loved to see Rhys and Galen in there too since the four of them are the closest to her heart out of all of them. (Mainly because they're two of my personal favorites lol)

Though, just being critical...you didn't do the tri-colored irises. and doyle/darkness's skin is supposed to be basically the color of his hair...and be able to fade into the darkness..hence his name. But his skin just looks charcoal.

Not to be critical of your being critical but I did do the tri-coloured irises. However this version online is small to prevent art theft. And artistic license is allowed, even if it disappoints the critics. To work with the contrast between these three characters I chose to make his skin charcoal. *shrugs*
