I wanted to keep the original sketch posted. I will update over the top of this one. I screwed up the lips. they shouldn't be so dark. Will fix later.
The black line is very important. It's known in my story as the life line. From the first and last breath (the nose and mouth) to the life line (the belly button/umbilical cord). The line goes from the nose to the belly button. The belly button is also surrounded by a sun moon simply drawing. Usually it's blue but Pritti is corrupted. The paint is magic bound to the effects of a mood ring, only it displays your hearts true intents and desires. Worn during important meetings, family gathers and ceremonies.
Ok so I can't keep it a secret any longer. He is the Vampire king in Lost Words and he is eccentric. The black obsidian jewellery is the mark of his reign as king and the colour for his clan. As the story unfolds you'll notice the irony of it since obsidian use to be used to ward off darkness and evil.
