Ash’s Kin # 2 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

Vassily tells his grand daughter Celeste a story of how he met his wife and her grandmother, although on the surface his tale appears to he layered in a fairy tale, when in actuality it is not.

While on his journey he encounters a deer and chases it for many miles, enjoying the thrill of the hunt. Just as he was about to kill the deer, a young girl names Ash leapt on the deer and broke it’s neck.

Ash returned to her people, with Vassily, bring the fallen animal for their meal.

This man is one of the men in Ash’s tribe. He has a slight wolfish look about him, which is appropriate because we later learn that Vassily and Ash, as well as her kin are shape-shifters and have the ability to transform themselves into wolves.

He appears in Sandman # 38, page 15, panel 1.

Anna did a great job with this portrait. He has a kindness in his green eyes, which I can really appreciate. I think that Anna has an amazing ability to capture the gentler side of people in her portraits and she definitely did that with this character.
