A con badge commission for the sweet Felix Carni. I really had fun just splashing aroiund the digital paint with this one and yessss I am biased and love warm atmospheres, especially African sunsets. I like to imagine myself there, the warmth and sweet smell of dry grasses wrapping around me and carrying me away.

This piece is not intensly detailed as obviously too much detail would be lost when printed in badge size but even so I hope the general feel of the piece are convincing. Also as far as wings go..erf..definetly something I need to work on but I think you guys will see more winged critters from me in the future as I rather enjoyed the learning process on this one.

Size: 1250x1000 pixels
Time: 4-6 hours?
Tools: open canvas for the original sketch, ps cs2 for coloring.

(For those curious, Prices for a badge like this are $60+ :) )

I love how even the wings have subtle leopard spots on them 😍

The wings don't really match the colours of the leopard, but great piece of art! 100% belongs in a museum.
