Sunset SilkWing [CE] by SterlingTheUmbreon Sunset SilkWing [CE] by SterlingTheUmbreon
*victory dance* yesss it's finally done!! ho ho ho kids i'm not dead
ok so here we have an entry for Tigersky90's design a character contest, and i picked the silkwing because i'm an idiot
i once again used my coloured pencil magic to somehow turn this beast into a slightly beautiful dragonfly
SPOILER ALERT: silkwing wings are extremely hard. they are a trap. you see them and you think, pfft-piece of cake BUT IT IS NOT. IT IS NO SMALL FEAT TO PUT LITTLE BUTTERFLY WINGS ON A BIG DRAGON AND SOMEHOW NOT HAVE THEM LOOK SUPER DISPROPORTIONATE
anny way i tried to put a lot of attention to detail in this that was ruined by my scribbly colouring and weird colours. anyhoo, even though my initial attempt crashed and burned, i hope it still is marginally ok. look from a safe distance

Art copyrights to me
Oc will belong to Tigersky90 
Time: oh gosh uh i dunno 2-3 hours?
WOF and SilkWings belong to Tui T. Sutherland
Inspiration: the wings are based off of an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, and the body colours are loosely based off of a sunset on the ocean i guess?
anyway i hope you like!
