Here he is, in all his rascally glory. You can buy the high-resolution file of this character study in the store.

I like! Seems a little broader than I was thinking, but that might be the yellow vest. Very nice!
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 10:27pm
is exactly what I thought too!
Initial reaction: "huh. He's much bigger than I thought"
I was expecting more wiry-ness. not beanpole, but like really compact muscles

comes from a family of big men. He's a brawler at heart, and doesn't always resort to magic right off the bat if he can have a good tussle instead.

Stop making me fall for the bad guy, Mei! That's just not fair!

Connin's devilishly handsome, all right, but even if I didn't know anything about him from the story, I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him.
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 8:28pm
He just cares about you giving him what he wants--whatever that might be...
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 8:34pm
I'm pretty sure I would give him whatever that might be.

I agree with you, that's the first thing I thought when I saw the not-colored version : "I would never trust someone with a face like that !"
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 9:07pm
I agree with MsGamgee...he's much broader in figure than I expected him to be, but I really like the facial drawing.
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 9:33pm
i have a new found love for Connin.. he's sexy. much better looking than i ever pictured him.. for some reason i thought he was blond. but i'm not very good at reading descriptions of characters
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 9:50pm
I sort of saw him in blonde, too.
I've also never seen a dude look so sultry.
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 10:19pm
I thought of him as a red-head... = P No clue why.
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 10:21pm
which is a reddish brown or a brownish red depending on how you look at it.
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 1:26pm
yah. rusty in my mind somehow translated to dirty blond.. i guess rust is kinda like dirt.......
but I like him this way better
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 1:41pm
Ah, now that the light's not shining directly on the computer screen, I can see the reddishness in it.
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 9:35pm
I find it funny that other people are saying that he's broader than they expected, because for some reason, in my mind, that is how he was! I was always picturing him to be a bit on the larger side, not slim like Temmin or Teacher. I love the expression from the facial drawing. It's very intimidating.
Sat, 03/28/2009 - 10:01pm
That seems to be exactly as he should be. There are some that don't quite seem to fit the description (IMHO but quite nice none the less :D) but Connin does. And as all the above have said- devilishly attractive and I wouldn't trust him as far as a I could throw him. Excellent job!

"Ooh, look at me. I can play with fire that I pulled from the air. I'm such a badass."
Yes, yes you are.
I swear, M, it's been too long a day. In your response to Taslin, I read "He just cares about giving you what he wants.". It kind of works, too, but on a whole different level.

Not as flamboyant in dress as I was expecting. His lips look very luscious in the head shot. I also like the way she did his name. It's shiny!
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 10:10am
Ah, perfect. I think my mental image of Connin was him at age 18, rather than 20-something-going-on-immortal, because he so often comes off as young (usually relative to the Teacher) and immature, so this is a slightly more mature/broad version of him to me. But yeah, like I said for the sketch - a perfect capture of him, to me.

While Connin is one of my least favorite characters, I think this picture strikes me as the most appropriate in the bunch, at least for how I imagined folks. I'm a definite fan of his hair color, and overall image. Rawr.
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 3:42pm
...which is my fault, not Alice's. She's been on a tear lately, though. Ansella, Harsin and Connin have been spot on, and usually within the first or second sketch.
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 5:45pm
My gods he is amazing. He is almost perfect, but I must say the earring is a suprise.
Will his mother be next?
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 6:48pm
Maeb is next; Alice and I are exchanging preliminary sketches etc because she will be the hardest to do (having two aspects).
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 7:02pm
They look a bit like Ansella's and Temmin's.
Sun, 03/29/2009 - 7:09pm
that the first picture was just a black and white, but why was the first thought that popped into my head, "hey didn't he have red hair?" was that a brain fart? yes?
Sun, 05/17/2009 - 2:34am
I can see why he has few problems in getting the ladies he chooses. He may be a rascal but he's a yummy one.
