This is a masked priest of a dark goblin god, casting a spell before a bone standard and wielding a pair of wicked ceremonial knives. The T-shaped symbol and the knife design were both suggested by the art director, the mask design is my own.
I like it overall, but I don't think I made it clear enough that the eyes in the mask are fake, and that the goblin's actual eyes are the two points of white staring out from slits beneath the mask's painted gaze. At the same time, I wanted the mask to look real enough at first glance that you could take it for a face, only to see that it's a mask on a second look. I could have handled the eyes better, but aside from that I think it came out all right.
