Moar Eyemelting by Ascynd Moar Eyemelting by Ascynd
It's big sizewise but not memory-wise. Oh and Painter is definitely anti-aliasing my stuff. Bad Painter. I made it stop.

I was inspired by Californicate's ref sheet for Sari, so I tried making one of my own for Ash as a Flarion, lol. It's not as clean and neat as Sari's and not as pretty as thesilentrose's Nefirian ref, but I'm happy enough with it that I'm done messing with it now.

The phoenix-thing in the upper right hand corner isn't my design... I found it on tribalshapes.com. I'm just no good at all with fancy stylized stuff. =P

Flarions are thesilentrose's creation, this is just my take on the beastie. To learn more about 'em go to Valenth.com (though it seems to be down today)

Thanks, he's actually a golden color but this is a very simplified scheme, the gold is only noticeable here on the horns (which are the shiniest part)

Love the design, and it's nice to see a ref sheet where the character isn't in a static pose. Great work ^^

Thanks... this color scheme is fairly simple and the only reason I make reference sheets is for my own reference, I certainly don't expect anyone to want to draw my characters. But it is useful to refer someone to for visualization purposes also. =)

Simple colour schemes are better in my opinion. When artists make super-bright-and-sparkly-rainbow-characters it just seems that they're trying too hard to be "interesting" and "unique". Plus it makes the character impossible to draw XD
Yeah, I know what you mean. I only make ref sheets for myself, and for the rare occasions when I might do a trade...People who make them and immediately expect others to draw them fanart bug the hell outta me.

Not really, I haven't had time lately what with my RL and my computer blowing up on me, lol... glad you like the image though, I made it mostly to show someone what he looks like in case I do RP with him, and so when I draw him I can keep the stripes relatively the same each time.

Thanks! I'm working on a more "golden" version but this works for simplified.

Colors based on Windows 3.1 "Hot Dog Stand" theme. ;)

I saw you at Valenth, and came over and saw this. I love your dragon, you did a great job of him!! :love:

The colors are marvelous and the character sheet of him is a clever idea to depict your dragon. :idea:

Thanks! I think Flarions are more gold and scarlet colored, I didn't pull off the gold look.. but the yellow goes well with the other colors. =)

I used Painter 10 to paint the dragon, and Gimp to patch it all together. =)

Thanks! I think on the original critter the wing fringe flows into the tail fringe... I didn't quite pull that off but I think it looks good anyway.

It does look good.

I personally like to descern the wings from the tail. In my opinion, they shouldn't collide with each other since they both have very specific funtions, although some anatomies allow them no problem =)
