Photoshop, custom textures and brushes, wacom updated retouched few things
Anatomical disbalance (mutations) were intentional along with the strong traditional look (oil on canvas) inspired by teh Old Masters.
Appearance: Kraunís appearance is very alien in nature; his flesh is literally as pale as a ghost with a smooth rubbery texture, his eyes are nothing but reflective liquid mercury orbs that lack both pupils and irises, and his long straight white hair runs down just past his waist, neatly parted down the center to cover the sides of his face. His body structure is ectomorphic and extremely elongated; thin and lanky with narrow shoulders, emaciated to a point where he is almost skeletal with a wiry and sinuous frame of mostly tendon and sinew, complete with extremely long spindly limbs that make up most of his body length, disproportional as opposed to a regular body as his arms and legs are five feet long each. His facial features are well defined and gaunt in a statue-esque sort of way, almost appearing neither masculine nor feminine; it is rather ambiguous. But the most striking feature is that he never shows emotions or expressions, exactly like a carved statue; his body itself reflects this as it seems to be at a constant temperature of zero degrees centigrade; his touch is as cold as ice and his complexion is like that of a frozen corpse or a ghost.
The monk wears black pants and black boots, both of which are strapped with small black leather belts and buckles. He also wears long black fingerless gloves that just go up past his elbows and what appears to be the lower half of a ragged set of heavy long robes wrapped around his waist, hanging down to his ankles; essentially a long overskirt. Beneath the long fingerless gloves he wears, a system of keratinous white plates and spines on his forearms are present, growing directly from his bones and out of his flesh, five plates in all with three spines whose tips and outward edges are similar to blades growing underneath each, the tips of the spines slice cleanly through the gloves and protrude from it, between the overlapping plates. He also has plates over his shins and similar but smaller plates on his knuckles, the back of his fingers, and a row running down his back along his backbone. In fact, even his hair is artificial, as he is not mammalian; he has no mammalian glands and no belly button that breaks the perfect smoothness of his rubbery flesh, and his body is completely hairless save for the artificial hair on his head which is of the same make-up as the spines and plates that grow out of his body. He usually carries a long string of plain grey perfectly spherical beads, twenty-seven in all, each one centimetre in diameter. These shu-zhu, or 27-count prayer beads, he usually has wrapped around his left wrist and hand in a double loop, the intersecting point usually found at the inside of his wrist.
