Title from Supernatural.

Finished kiriban piece for Delogu of their character named Persefio! There are some aspects of his design that I think I didn't capture as well as I wanted to, but I put lots of time into it and really enjoyed every aspect! I also think the shading came out really well - I am starting to get more comfortable with this new style although I'm still working on it.

Anyway I hope you enjoy! There is also a headshot on Twitter.

My first thought was "There's always a bigger fish" scene from star wars, I don't know why, but now I feel embarrassed.

Beautiful work. I like the clean lines and the shading.

Thank you so much! I was trying to use thicker lines to 'simplify' my style before but I've found that i just really like thin lines i guess. these are even thinner than my previous style. I think I want to keep exploring it C:

This is good!

I like especially the Dilophosaurus-alike head and the bioluminescend body parts. Reminds me of Otachi from Pacific Rim :)

Yeah! Dilophosaurus is my favorite dinosaur, so I incorporated that into the design.

Shedimi's avatar

Dilophosaurus and Baryonyx are my favourites :)

Is your Character a Kaiju, dragon or something else?

Sorry for the question I have still a lot to learn about creature design.

Delogu's avatar
They're a dragon! Dragons can really be anything, on my profile you can find his entire reference if you're curious. I can understand why you'd think he looks like a Kaiju.

I've said this so much but- I love this! I love the colors, the ferocity- just everything and how you took me in to the kiriban winner's slots despite not being the first. That meant so much and that says a lot already. You're so kind and talented!

Yay!! Truly I am pleased that you enjoy it cx That makes it worth every second I spent! He is a really interesting character and I am glad I got the opportunity to showcase my interpretation of his design c: best wishes ♥

Thank you, Gali! As soon as I saw "clear teeth" on the ref I'm like yeah I'm getting those babies in there. xD
