Kingdom Death Rawhide WIP and Messenger of 1st Story

I really think this rawhide guy looks a lot like Jaimie Lanester...  I'm going to go with graveyard earth shade instead of darker browns which I'll leave for my leather guy.
I also started my Messenger of the First Story which I guess is inspired by a character from Chrono Trigger (Ayla).  I actually have no idea who this is, but now that the skin is done, I think I'm going to put it on hold and wait for a few other people to paint it.  Basically in the hair, there are some things that I *think* are gems but I'm not sure and the concept art doesn't show it.  Anyway time to play the waiting game.
