Thanks for 3,500 hits and counting, everyone.
This one is for *ShoelessCosmonaut, who hit my 3,000 pgviews and requested this awesome character. Spiffy Antagonist General Jau. I'm not sure that my digital painting skills quite did my mental image justice, but blah blah and whatnot. I had fun, which is what matters--though not as much as *ShoelessCosmonaut liking it X3.
Enjoy~

edit// Added an overlooked lion tail and a few perfectionist touch-ups X3

painted from scratch, GIMP 2.4

O3O armor! i cannot draw armors and other complicated/mechanical like thingys xD;; aah, but now to the comment ^^-: i really like the shadings and the shine of the hair :3 it really slips it all into layers and makes it more realistic. then again, all of the coloring here is pretty good :D. well, compared to mine ^^-

:3 Thanks for the nice comment~ Even though armor is complicated, I like it... drawing & looking at it. I really do. I just wish I could be better at it, it was hard making it look like a metal. A little too blurry, I think... But good practice!
Aw, you're nice. Everyone has their strong points... I don't know that coloring is one of mine. ^o^;

I've got to add a lion tail... the designer overlooked it in the reference she gave me ^___^; *goes to upload fixed version*

yes, it is...especially if you're trying to color it with your hands and not a program xD;;. and also, it is practice! cuz then you'll know how to draw it better each time you do <hmm...experiance i guess xD.> well, if coloring isnt your strong point, at least you're better than me xD.

heeey, he does have a lion tail! i didnt notice that x3. it's right beside him, doncha see? x3
