And oh man, was this year one of improvement. I've completed my first 15 months of college, and my art was taken on the journey of intense study in my art major. It's been a fun ride, and I hope that next year will bring even more improvement.
Thanks for all the support over the years guys! It means the world to me you don't even know ;u;
Whew. I FINALLY finished a reference for her. Well, at least a temporary one xD Someday ill do one with her personality and everything..but for now this is what you get c:
Just a few things id like to add that aren't on the ref:
-She has slit pupils. -She wears heavy eye makeup. -Industrial piercing and cheek markings are only on the LEFT side. -30STM bracelet can also be worn on tail and neck. (it can be different sizes) -The spikes on her head can flatten backwards according to mood. -Ears have limited mobility and can no longer stand upright -She stands on her hind legs alot.
I'm going to do her personality tomorrow. theres way to much to write right now xD
Oh, and if you plan on drawing her at all, (in which case i will worship you forever.) take a listen to those songs listed up there. They may give you a better understanding of her personality <3
The dragon on the left is the first character i ever came up with. I had to be about 13 years old.. Maybe closer to 14, i cant really remember. Those were the shittiest years ive had, im not even sure why.. I couldnt cope with anything, i hardly let myself out, and i was very private about my art. So, i just started drawing. like, really drawing. Every day. And somehow, this dragon started to pop up. She didn't have a name or background. I didn't know what a 'sona' was, and she hardly represented me. She was like an imaginary friend really. And as silly as it sounds, she really helped me. Maybe it was just my brain's way of coping.
Her personality was confident, headstrong and was so sure of herself. Everything i wasn't. She was so much stronger than me, and that, somehow, really kept me going. I was now drawing her everywhere, making up stories for her, everything. Somehow, she got me through those few years, my art grew and improved because of her.. I discovered Deviant Art, found people who were like me, and i became more confident with myself.
The dragon began to slowly slip away. I came up with my earliest 'fursona', created new characters, thought up a comic idea, failed miserably at attempting to start one.. i started to forget about her. I was to "mature" for that anymore.
But i am really starting to find myself now, within art, and finding you amazing people on here.. you have all given me so much support since i joined.. ive really grown, and i never would have gotten this far without all of you.
But i have that dragon to thank most of all.. however, i think it's time for me to say goodbye to her.
FINALLY got around to uploading this! Now that the results are up I can finally put up my new sona's reference! I absolutely LOVE her <3 Yes I'm naming her Taz by the way, I know, I now have 2 characters named Taz, but, I went through a bunch of names, and honestly, Taz just seems to fit perfectly. It suits the design, and it's probably one of my most commonly used nicknames as well. Keep in mind this is only a common name for her though, her full name is Tahlia Marie Prowd, which is my name. But Taz is just the preferred name to be called This may be a little confusing since I'm still keeping old Taz, but just remember which one is which XD Old Taz isn't my fursona anymore, just a character So you're still welcome to draw her if you like.
All info should be in there, I'm not going to go too far into personality info; I'm pretty tired of writing a personality bio of myself really, so just keep in mind that I'm generally a shy person, but very friendly, and welcoming to new friends Pretty happy and mellow most of the time too, despite how short-tempered I am.
Taz is also an arachnophobic. Which is the fear of spiders. Can't stand the bastards. I'm also a huge freakin fan of Sons of Anarchy and Supernatural; best shows ever made <3 I also have a thing for Pirates, Bikers, Scottish men, male facial hair and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Her S.O.A dog tag is compulsory btw, she's always wearing that.
Any questions, feel free to ask!

Simple reference: [link] ---------- Video: [link] EDIT: Video blocked in the United States. I'm really, really sorry guys. YouTube pisses me off. ------------------------------------------------ I honestly thought I uploaded this on here. I was browsing through my characters on here and wondered where the hell Zeppers was. What the fuck. I did this ages ago. Why the hell did I NOT post this on here. My God. /facepalm. The video has even been up for ages. WHY DIDN'T ANY OF YOU TELL ME. Augh. Have some copy/pasted description from FA because I'm too laze to write a new one. ---------------------------------------
I've finally gotton around to making another Rhodesian Ridgeback character. I absolutely love them, easily my favourite dog breed. This fellow doesn't speak or anything like that, he's just an average dog that does average dog things. Boring, plain, I know. But a natural character is what I was aiming for.
Consider this a dream pet even, I've always wanted to own a Ridgeback, but I'm not sure if I ever will. I will, however, own another male dog in my life and he WILL be named Zeppelin. Yes. <3 In case you're wondering, yes I did get the name from Led Zeppelin. Which I am a huge fan of. And yes, I did use Iron Maiden style writing for the name heading.
Enjoy this fellow, draw him if you like. Sorry if the colouring is a little confusing or hard to master since he has no 'sharp edge' markings apart from the white chest ones. It's super easy to colour natural-ish on SAI.
So this is another late trade, but I've finally had some time lately to finish all my trades <3 I hope you like it! She was soooo much fun to draw ;-; And it's been a while since I've done cell shading; and as much as it was time consuming, I really enjoyed it <3
I was also listening to Skid Row when I started this. Hence the title. I don't even know if it's mud or blood. I'll leave that up to your imaginations. But I can't use Skid Row on YouTube so I've had to use difference music XD Hope you don't mind
I hope you like it, and thank you so much for trading with me! <33
My pitiful attempt at realism. It didn't turn out the way I wanted but hey! This is my first proper attempt where I've done-- okay, and actually my second finished 'painting' (it's all scribbles actually o.o) I EVER DONE IN MY LIFE OMG MY EYES ARE WEEPING.
I like the way Mush turned out, but not happy with the way my cat did ><;
Heh. The eyes look unnatural, I need to fix them sometime or work on them more when I try to paint these two.
