Do you know what a sword is? - said the creature. No - answered the blue eyed man just before dying.
So here it is! This started as a random skectch, and when I started drawing the head, I didn't expect to came out like this. I used some cell-shading tutorials, which were so handly. And I added some shades with pencils. Obviusly, all looks great mostly because I'ts done by me.
Hehe, get it? Warbird? She's a bird and a warrior? Hehe. *ruffles feathers*
Whee, just showing off my gryphonness, Isra! Nobody remembers, but I had mentioned that I would shade and fancy up that front-facing head-shot of her on her ref...and here it is!
This was dang fun to do - I love this gal, she's so boss. Yeah-yeah, I'd drawn it before, but it felt good to finish it up for display. I had fun adding the little fur details as well as the blue on the side of her face, because...I have a tendency to do that, on 'fiery' pieces, if anyone's noticed. I love red and blue, hehe.
I love doing busts like this and with this shading. Would anyone be interested in me opening up commissions of these?
Isra is part booted eagle and part sand cat, both Israeli species. She's a warrior and lives in Gaza. More info on her ref sheet: twilightsaint.deviantart.com/a…
