October in the Chair

This is a self promo illustration I did this week. I decided to do a portrait of a character in a short story. The story is "October in the Chair" from Neil Gaiman's collection Fragile Things. In the story the months of the year gather around a fire to tell stories. This is a tradition that they do, and the leader in the chair rotates. This time it is October's turn.

This is the description of October from the book:

"His beard was all colors, a grove of trees in autumn. Deep brown and fire orange and wine red, an untrimmed tangle across the lower half of his face. His cheeks were apple red" - Neil Gaiman
