What to draw next?

How does this anime and manga wizard fit into your character's story?

Did he use magic to turn the wolf girl into a kemonomimi? Does he disguise himself as a harmless old man or an innocent little boy?

Additionally, does he look like you would expect a wizard to in the world you have created? If not, that's okay - you can change and customize this character.

Give him glasses or a beard. Dress him in normal clothes. Or adjust his facial features to make him appear more kindly or malevolent.
