Thank you so much for this!
She's so lovely, I jus tajkldfhasuhdrgjwnk;Hasdfjkgh
The reflective, little scales under her wings is such a smart attention to detail, it's so pretty.
You also gave her a sense of weight, mass, and presence? If that makes sense? She looks more like a tangible creature, I find it really cool.
I want to hold her paws and touch the pawpads lol.
You've also given the spikes on her back/start of her tail so much more oomph, if you will.
She looks threatening, yet lovely. I like that you gave her eyebrows, too!
Again, thank you so much!!! All the praise!!!
aww man, everything you do is just absolutely stunning! I have way too many favorite parts of this drawing, from the way the light reflects through the horns and shines blue on the body, to the way the perspective is so perfect as well as the range of motion. You seem to get better with every drawing you do! I cant wait to see more (and if you ever get room for commissions please tell me cause I've wanted a drawing for years from you lol)
Can you enlighten me about the Shin-isms? I would like to know.
Also, damn. From the perspective to the coloration, its all so good. Your content is sparse, yes, but it leaves a lasting impression. It is definitely enough to go from one drawing to the next.
Also, those fucking transparent spikes man... Wow.
Thank you so much for the compliments ;u; I tried really hard to pay attention to details on this one so I'm glad you noticed them.
As for the Shin-isms, I used to use a lot of Photoshop Noise, do a lot more "floaty poses", and I used to do a lot of eye-stabbing wings xD
Can ya show me the most blatant example of that from your old works?
Its funny how with you, details are always a thing. You get them just the right way (some artists on here overdo the details IMO), but you do so while just doing your style. However, when you decide to pay <i>particular</i> attention to details, some really great stuff comes out.
Haha, it means a lot to me that you say that! I'm still developing my relationship with details, but it's going in a positive direction, I think xD.
As for Shin-isms, Photoshop noise is one of the first things I started putting on artworks It later changed to textures most of the time. This one also employs floaty-pose.
And eye poking favs... which also happen to float...
Ahh, I see! You were basically doing a "trip down memory lane" project with this drawing, in a way. The red dragon (second to last) reminds me if Nigel from Rio, when he was singing his "I am vicious" song, haha.
Also, I forgot how damn varied your portfolio is... One of these days I need to just go digging through. What kind of treasures I will find, who knows?
