Surprise birthday gift for a friend, depicting him as a "knight mare."
Last year, we were part of a Dungeons & Dragons group that took on the Curse of Strahd. This friend played a noble character who rode into town with a horse and servants. Strahd stole his beloved horse and turned her into a night mare.
He also likes to play Hecarim in League of Legends.
With those two things in mind, I presented him with this gift. Since this does depict his likeness (facial if not muscular/equine), I also did get permission from him to include this in my portfolios.
