In 2018, as part of my Realm Ethereal universe-building process, I came up with a new series of character creations: The Ethereal Guard. They serve the Realm Ethereal by guarding the plane borders across multiple worlds. Additionally, they are generally under the service and orders from The Ethereals themselves.
Azure is the first Ethereal Guard I designed from back in 2018. That first painting was weak, even though I really enjoyed the design of the character. Consider this painting a refresh and a reboot. Prints available for sale here.
