So I've been meaning to rework my vision of whers of Pern for quite a while. I know everyone has their own vision of them since there isn't a whole lot on whers and exactly how ugly they are supposed to look.
Personally, I've always thought that the whers really don't look as downright ugly as the Pernese like to think of them. I think that the Pernese see them as ugly because of how different they look from the dragons, and because when they were made they were seen as a horrible failure, that and they are supposed to be temperamental. All of those things, in my opinion, would lead a society into looking at something and saying how ugly and horrible it is, especially when compared to the dragons that are seen as the elegant, strong protectors of Pern.
I've known for quite soem time my whers didn't look too different from pern dragons, and I've been wanting to change that for a while. So I've been sketching concepts out to rework my own vision of whers.
I tried to make the muzzle thicker and shorter, with the obvious bump on the bridge of the nose rather than the smooth muzzle. Lots of ridges and long ears and shorter headknobs. That's what I've used here to try to make my whers visually different than the dragons. I'm thinking of maybe going back over and turning the short rounded headknob into a bit more of a point so it matches with the face ridges I put on it.
Anywho, not much else to say here. This will probably be tossed into my scraps later.
Oh god I'm tired. @___@ I've been panicking and literally scampering all over the country today. When I finally got home a few hours ago I decided I'd doodle a quick something... That was a really bad idea. Now its almost 4 and I gotta wake up again soon?! Kill me now.
Anyway... some more FMA fanart, this time of Olivier Armstrong. She is kickass and I love her. XD I was actually just gonna draw some generic person and have fun with colors but it quickly turned into Olivier striking a srs pose. Hmm. There's a lot stuff I really messed up on, but I'm too tired to list them right now. And I might get killed if I do. .__. Sigh.
Open Canvas and Photoshop art combo really do it for me. I think I'll stick to it. I also made sure to save an Open Canvas Event File from the sketching stages to color. If anyone wants to see it I'll try to put the file up somewhere. You need OC to view it though.
A self made continuation of the part of Himaruya's epic Christmas event(2010) in which Feliks warns Toris over the phone that he has a bad feeling, then WHOOSH. [link]
( I'm pretty sure the shadow that attacked Toris was ParallelRussia by now, seeing as when Toris woke up, he was saying "Russia is scary" XD Gah, I love those two. ) I got to play with my new coloured pens to make these!
