Patreon - I think I'm loving it??



I UH wanted to draw blackbird in some armour (more than I what I did here) but had no justification for it, and the usual fantasy battlefield atmosphere is really overdone by me so I wanted to think of something different... I thought what if blackbird is taking a break from battle, maybe she's taking a sip of soda, then I thought maybe she got the soda from the mcdonald's that is in rubble right now from an angry dragon that is not satisfied with his purchase? maybe humans are at war with dragons because they're not happy with the quality of the fast food and blackbird is hired by mcdonald's to be their guard and--

I got so carried away justifying the original intent that I didn't spend much time on the actual armour stuff that I wanted to put on blackbird HAHA ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ I had a lot of fun with this picture, I like the flatting + paintover process because it gives me colour/contrast anchors while I get to paint over those colours with any other colours I want with less risk of my colours making 0 sense. I wouldn't have been able to try these things without Patreon so thank you all for helping me with my art as well with your support!
