And here it is! Finished! Shitty handwriting and all! I tried to incorporate both Ahrima and Toba's original design into my drawing as best I could while still keeping with my visions of the characters. Let me know what you think! Thanks!
The coloring looks beautiful! It was worth the wait!
Thanks! It was so so hard to do. I usually color very flatly and with out much depth, but that wouldn't have worked at all for the type of feeling that the song portrayed. 😭 I should probably practice more with harsh lighting environments so this isn't so hard lol. But thank you so much again!
My pleasure! I really think the softer constrast works here, tho. The ammount of detail into his body lines and feathers makes a lot of difference to the mood, at least for me. There is something here of power and might suddenly torn appart, so being able to see every single detail but still get the mood shading is something very precious. Plus, the color you did for the highlights works really well with the skin tones, so I think you did great!!
