Last time was Crott. Now we have totally different kind of a fucker as our target! Long story short, reference sheet for my favorite boy.
DONOVAN aka DARKNESS       >>>

>> Likes when he is called Darkness, even if his real name is Donovan (= little dark). This weird habit may be derived from the fact that he has completely pitiful imagination. He thinks Darkness sounds more cooler than his original name.
>> 5,2 ft / 160 cm
>> Lets just say that he needs a diet.

There is so much story behind this guy, i don't exactly know where to begin. Not going to spoil everything of course. Basically you could call him a wolf, if asked about his species, but no wolf has such a heavy build as he has. So he maybe something related to wolves. In the world he lives at the moment, his most important daily tasks is to keep some company for a female dragon stuck in human body. I am talking about Thea of course. His job contains some fun too. Like, harassing innocent employees (like Dannsey) at the mansion where They all live happily together, cleaning up dead human corpses and getting rid of occasional vermin invasions. Especially Donovan enjoys killing, eating, biting and scaring, but then has his calm side too.
Most of the time he appears to be grumpy. snarly, over-sized wolf drooling all over the places but he has grown with Thea - adores her and has learned to be something you could even call gentle. He is her ears when she sleeps, her teddy bear when she needs some comfort or fur where to hide some tears. He is egocentric, smells bad and sheds tons of fur, but has a heart. 
When attacking someone you might be surprised by his agility. He is not fast, but is able to make amazingly swift turns. You should be afraid of the brutal way he uses his size and mass.

>> Darkness has this another design of his. it is old, but is in use and if someone likes it better than this, I don't mind.
Darkness Timeline by Grypwolf 
There is completely different and more complex story for when he looked like that. From that time he has a lot more scars and memories. He has 5 pups. Randandel, Efrail, Via Karelia, Felisia and Ardent Fleur and grandson Dwalen. He has a wife, Verily.
>> He don't have wings on this new design, but I don't mind if someone designs them to him.
>> His eyes glow. it is not a mistake to draw his eyes without glowing tho.
>> Most likely I will add here stuff when something needs to be pointed out. ^___^'

Apua tuo Darkun ja Thean välinen suhde. :heart: Haluaisin niiiin lukea/nähdä heistä enemmän! Voin niin kuvitella miten Darkku on muuten ihan yrmy mut Thea rapsuttaa vähän leuan alta/koskettaa otsalta ja Darkku menee maihin. Plus tää uusi design on niin komea, pakko koittaa piirtää. :heart:

Vois olla kiehtovaa nähdä Dwalen präntättynä tuohon tyyliin Darkin kanssa... *miets* Tosin voipi olla ettei Dwalenia samalla tavalla pysty... Koska no... Sen häntä. Plus tietty ehkä seki ongelma, et Dwalen on tehty ajatellen, ettei se pysty perii mustaa :P

Harmi että niiden yhteinen tarina jäi nii lyhkäseks ;___; Ois ollu aivan ihana pelailla sun kanssa Darkness/Dwalen pelejä...

Ah huomasin :heart: ;____; Mul on vaan jonossa joku 10 fanarttia ja kaikkiin pitäs jaksaa kommentoida enemmänkin kuin kiitos (musta on aina kiva antaa piirtäjälle palautetta enemmän kuin yksi sana ihan jo siittä syystä että ne on piirtänyt edes mulle jotain). Niin jos maltat oottaa ni kyllä kommentoin <3 en tästä syystä ole favorittanutkaan työtäsi koska mulle favoritteihin pistäminen on merkki siittä että olen kommentoinut siihen.

:'DD ah. mulla on outo järjestelmä. anteeksi.

Juu ei se mitään, hyvähän toi sun systeemisi on! Kysyin vaan ja varmistin, koska haluan todella että saat sen koska sä oot inspiroinut mut taas piirtämään paljon enemmän kun yleensä.

Miltä se tuntuu olla noin kuuluisa ja hyvä piirtämään? :D

Aww <3 I completely understand. :3 I am planing to write about his life when he had that design. I also have started tons of different comics about it but I have never finished even one.
There is just so much stuff to tell that I need time to build everything together.

Yep, gathering stuff like that for a story take quite a while. My fursona and main character's story is told through a comic. I'm only 64 pages in and there's still SO MUCH more to do. :coursework: 

But I'd love to read his story if you do ever get everything together for it!
