After three long months! This is for
for his birthday back in November 1, 2017. I ended up finishing this in February 4, 2018. =.= This is my take on how I imagine baby Spooky to look like. I've seen many fanarts of him with small snouts, but I always think he'd have more of a long snout even as a baby.
As always, I've learned that making artwork for friends and other I care about usually pushes me to try new things and go above and beyond. So for this piece, I tried adding A LOT of stuff I never tried before.
I tried adding a colorful shiny shading for his hair, added a texture for his skin for both his chest and the rest of his body to give him more of a dragon-like skin. I'd like to think the purple areas on the chest and tail are really smooth while the green is slightly rough. I also did my best to make the eyes pop out and look amazing. I'm really proud of how they came out.
The headphones I referenced and lined while coloring it myself. So it's a recreation of the real thing. I tried matching the shading to the original which was a good opportunity to practice my shading which I struggle with.
As for the egg, the first thing that came to mind when I thought of designing the egg was Togepi. xD So Spooky's egg design is heavily inspired by Togepi's patterns. I also tried to add Spooky's dots that he has from under his eyes to give it a personal touch.
Also this was another opportunity to push myself to work on adding a background. I got to use yuumei's cloud brush which turned out flawless. =v= Credits to
for the brush! I highly recommend their brushes! I also tried my best to do trees and grass. ;v; One of the few times I've tried making it. I think it came out pretty good though. I'm happy with it.
And last but not least, I added the lyrics to one of Spooky's favorite songs "Sad Machine" by Porter Robinson. I really like how it came out. Really colorful and glowey-looking.
Overall as long as this took, I feel really accomplished and that I learned a lot of new things from this piece. Happy late birthday Spooky!!!
