A personal doodling of Yona, an aevaeryx known as the 'white dancer'. :>

Program: Photoshop CC 2015
Tablet: Wacom Intuos Pro
Time: ~ 6hrs
Behind the Scenes: Initially ready for shading yesterday, I couldn't decide on a style I wanted to play with until today. This is kind of a weird blend of cel-shading and soft highlights and lowlights. I'm really not sure how I feel about it, but hopefully it gives someone out there the warm fuzzies. The background is more or less a nod to my ancient 2011-2012 sketch commissions where I churned out 'pop-out' commissions left and right. Let no borders define you!

Oh. This looks amazing. You worked really hard on those feathers. It always worth it. Feathery wings alwasy looks so amazing fully detailed. Also really good work on the light. Seems like a sunset to me and that birdy flies really high in the skies.

Yay for Yona, she's one of my favorite Aevaeryx of yours! She looks so wonderful here against the beautiful sky. Can't wait to see more of her and the reference sheet too. :D

Thank you very much! Might be another year or two before I can ever start doing references again at this rate. ^^;
Nazrindi's avatar
Oh goodness! Just because you're so busy, or due to other commissions, or both? ^^;
Skysealer's avatar
Very much both XD
