Story of the artwork

Husker is a character from the adult cartoon called hazbin hotel. This show inspired his latest cosplay outfit which was a piece of art in itself. The drawings are usually the starting point of deciding on his next cosplay outfit. This art took five days to make. Art is a challenge for Xave as he has continuous seizures that cause tremors in his hands, this is the reason he chooses digital art as an error caused by the tremors can be erased.

Xavier used technology (Procreate) to create his artwork
