Dearest Dumb Boi Hakkun

I can’t believe it’s the end of the school year. I’m watching the snowfall out of my window as I type this.

This is Hakkun, one of my DnD characters. He’s a storm sorcerer/unauthorized genie warlock multiclass living in a “futuristic medieval” society. His genie’s vessel is a compass. I wanted to make him a very pretty and fashionable boy. I gave him a hat because I liked its silhouette although I do have trouble figuring out horn placement. I’m proud of his fancy-soled boots.

I mixed a lot of feminine-associated design elements into his design. I often have a hard time figuring out men’s fashion because most of it’s so plain compared to female fashion. I’m glad I did what I did about Hakkun, he looks so stylish!
