Commissioned Art of Kulaszar

Commissioned Art of Kulaszar

I commissioned AR Sullivan once again, this time to do Kulaszar! Kulaszar…who is a Shafien, as in, a shapeshifter.

It made sense. The idea I had for Ra’uw’la’s art was with him in his armor, in a proud position, inside his abode, like a blue-ish cave. He would...
