Uh.. Hi... I've been mentally dead for a month but... HERE I AM... HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY TO SEE LIFE SIGNS FROM ME... now excuse me while I drop this thing here and spend a week clearing my inbox.

Wait, what is this? It's not a gift? It's PERSONAL ART???? Comparable to fav.me/dap61ob

:iconlazycryplz:

Fun fact: The crystals on Tes' pinkish hide is actually quite soft and consists mostly of gelatine. That means SHE TECHNICALLY HAS A JELLY MANTLE. Tes is a candy dragon confirmed.

Do you have any fun facts for some of your characters? I'd love to hear them in the comments below!:eyes:

She's elegant. I think its neat that she got some gelatin on her. I bet that makes her nice and soft I would love to hug her. Your magic effects are out of this world. They give her a sense of grace and beauty. Your work on dragons is exemplary keep up the amazing work!

AAAAAH Funny Crying|Sob|Cute|K-on|Yui|Tears|Breath|Pant I HAVE FOUND THE STRENGTH TO DIG DEEP INTO MY NOTIFICATIONS AND I HAVE FOUND THIS WAY TOO KIND COMMENT OOF 😭😭 I AM SO SORRY FOR THE DELAY
It means a lot that you think she looks elegant 😭😭... I think that was what I went for when I made this! I don't really know what direction I want to take her ultimately though thonking  There is just too many options xD
Haha!! The gelatin is a vestige defence mechanism, but I guess it's like when lizards drop their tail so she can choose not to drop them xD I never thought about how it is to hug them before thonking  Definitely soft at least xD
I'm so glad you approve of the effects aswell ajrhaks It does mean a lot ;___; Thank you so much RageGauge ;__;💙

Your OC is just gorgeous! She has such a cool design....
Also this idea with the gelatine hide is interesting. But now I imagine her as being a huge, squishy gummybear.
And now I´m hungry :`D

Keep it up!

I will try my best ;__; Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words and encouragement djaksrhakj You've completely DEMOLISHED ME WITH ALL THOSE COMMENTS... GOOD GRIEF...

CANNOT RESIST THE SHINIES... MUST... POKE... I guess you can, though I am actually unsure how she'd react xD... Idk if she'd be annoyed or wouldn't care because she's just so fed up with people.

And OOOOOOOOO 👀 I would never have guessed that, since they look so different! I always liked the idea of shape shifting though 8D It's the coolest!

I really how she always has such a serene expression! I love the jelly crystals as well! They look so very cool! I love how you draw hands, so so good! ^^
Such a JELLY DURGEN!! <33
I love all the lighting and glowy effedcts used here! 
All the scale details look really fabulous!
Her eyes are very pretty too! 

Fun fact about Clyde: One of his powers is that he can be sneaky and hide in shadows if they are big enough to fit him XD

;____________; Thank you so much Savrin, you're so kind 😭😭😭 It was one heck of a struggle that has put me in burnout for a long time now, so it means a lot that you're positive to so many things about it ;___;

Clyde sounds like a very sneaky and amazing fellow xD I've always had a soft spot for stealth based characters. I really enjoy his design in that regard. The fact his markings looks like a cloak is so perfect and something I've never seen before, and it makes him so memorable and likeable imo!! A memorable and effectively simple design is the best designs, because they're the hardest ones to make Heart

You're welcome! I am glad I could help you in a positive way! :D

I fell in love with his design from the moment I saw him! :> and yes he is stealth based similar to a rogue.
He can fight a little bit but is more into being sneaky! I'm glad you think his design is memorable, it means a lot!
I love the simple designs myself. If I ever decide to get start drawing, he would be the easiest for me.

I hope you will overcome your burnout and I will get to see more art from you :heart:

You can certainly draw like this if you want to!!:heart: It is amazing how much you can learn for free on the internet.
Thank you so much ;___; Heart Heart

I have no idea how you come up with this design, it is so detailed, and great choice of colors (pastel-like shades) that match really well, and great lighting. The first thing that caught my eye was the face and the "fans" around the eyes and chin, really nice touches. The entire neck/body is fascinating too, and it's easy to overlook the wrinkles in her neck. I am in no place to critique and help you improve, because I have no idea what to say. You even added some slight texture to the smoother parts of her skin (hands, nose). I do wanna ask you, what is the story behind her horn? It has me curious.
Teisol's avatar

I guess her design is a result from my fascination with the strange and trying to make it beautiful xD.. I'm really glad you approve of my decisions ;_;

I do believe that everyone has a place to critique in some form! However I believe that encouragement is a much more effective tool for improvement, because artists are most often painfully aware of their faults already and will ask for critique when they can't see it. Either way, I appreciate your thought and I am very thankful!!

I'm flattered you ask 8D Though I am hoping to someday share lore on Tes through illustrations rather than words, and I am still on the fence on what direction I want to go. But I can say that her horn wasn't fused on her birth!

Thank you so much SwaffyX/Matt!!😭😭😭 (uh, which do you prefer I use?)
SwaffyX's avatar
You can call me Swaff or Matt whichever makes you more comfortable

I agree that overcritical remarks can cause an artist to lose faith in their art, though I haven't really gotten comments like that (I don't upload much art to begin with) but I have seen someone go quiet for a long time because some comments made them feel not good enough... every person is unique to themself, their own learning path and their own style. I try my best to word critiques gently when showing them ways to improve and be uplifting, sometimes I delete my entire post because I just can't choose the right words to say. Also, I think it would be more fun to see you draw her history as you think about how you want to do it, images speak better than words sometimes :aww:

Ohh that face is so stunning. The details and soft, smooth facial structure are so pleasing. Love the colour choices too. Wonderful :heart:

Awe jeez I love so much about this so why not express everything so you would know how awesome your art it :huggle:
Ooof this will be a long one xD
I really admire that you got to it and drew your character, that you were determined to go through the struggle and art block, but you overcame it and drew Tes, and she came out FABULOUS.
What I find interesting is that Teisol looks rough with all the scales, but soft and smooth with the scales on her head and the front of her neck and of course I can't forget the jelly which just sounds amazing \o/ Now I am just curious what the orb under her chin is made out of, is it pure light, energy or something otherworldly? (I always ask the silliest of questions xD) The pose and expression is always amazing as always as it shows this calmness and peace, and just makes the whole picture so soothing and just... I will try to make at least on my my drawings which would feature a calm character which would be a beacon to spread light and peace among everyone ;-; And finally I get to the shading and highlighting, I cannot express how badly I love that the light gets to only half of her horn and body, that looks so pleasant and gives a realistic vibe as light doesn't always perfectly light up the character *faints from the amazingness*
But I do find one little thing raising a bit of questions shouldn't her wing tendrils be showing a bit or can she fully retract them?
