Title from Agatha Christie's Poirot

Took a break to work on a personal piece. It's been quite some time since I drew Lhyz so it was really nice/relaxing to revisit her and I'm pleased with the outcome. In the previous two images, I had used a coloring method tutorial to try to standardize the way I go about coloring, so I can have a more consistent work method.

For this image, I followed the same concept but made some changes that incorporate the method into my workstyle a little better. I admit it was much more enjoyable to work on than the others (not that I didn't enjoy the other characters, just the workstyle was difficult).

Looking forward to further developing this workflow. I'm also really satisfied with the lineart on this one c:

Oof man this is so clean, so smooth, and so pleasing to look at.

Thank you so much ;u;

Look at that wing-socket muscling. That is some fine flippin' detail (and a cool-looking glowing eye to boot).

I often forget that people who are really good at their craft never shy away from seeking help in other places. On the contrary, they search for artistic muses in other people's production often, for the sake of variety and further learning.

Also, are you doing a body-parts shtick, or am I seeing things?

Shinerai's avatar

haha thank you for the compliments. Yeah it never hurts (ever) to try something new!

What do you mean by body-parts shtick? :D

zhidkovv's avatar

The body part thing you have going on in the description, right next to your avatar.

Also, did ya see the note I sent you?

Shinerai's avatar

OH! Haha yeah I think I've been cycling through various things in the desc for a couple years. Apparently I did see it because it is marked as read but I didn't remember! I'm really sorry about that - I didn't mean to ghost you, I just don't have a lot of free time so maybe I read it at work and forgot to follow-up ;o; I appreciate that invitation though idk if I can commit too strongly ;u;

Hah, I only now noticed that. Also, how do you come up with the names for your pieces? They often seem rather random, but still carrying a certain amount of meaning.

Well, I do not expect for you to get through it in a few days. Just like with Ice's Story, whenever you can, you will get to it.

Most of the time I will take the title from the TV show I'm watching at the time, so these are episode names. This one is from Poirot. I put the name of the show in the image description so sometimes it's interesting to go back and see what I was watching at the time. There are titles in my gallery from The X-Files, Stargate, Roswell, Dexter, or even the Great British Baking Show. c:

The Great British Baking Show? I wanna see one of the titles you used from there, haha!


Also, many of your titles make a lot more sense now. It all makes sense now. I have become omniscient!

What am I looking at here?
Shinerai's avatar

It's a dragon.

Jackiesteel's avatar
I’m just not seeing it as a dragon.
Shinerai's avatar

It's okay, your mileage may vary.

This is awesome! But for some reason, when I first saw the image, I thought it was an anthromorphic female dragon, and that she was all twisted up or something. I guess that's what you get for waking up at 2:30 every morning to get ready for work. Once I enlarged the image properly, I could tell those 'nubs' were the wing joints themselves.

Shinerai's avatar

Haha, I guess I can see how you would interpret it that way at first.
