GUYS ;_______; I FINISHED A FULLBODY...... ARE YOU PROUD OF ME....?
I THINK I IMPROVED MY SHADING A LITTLE TOO... MAYBE...
ALL THOSE LONG HOURS MIGHT BE PAYING OFF AHJRKKAJDARJKFRK

Cry forever 

This was supposed to just be a quick and fun thing, but OH NO 🙂 Why do I do this to myself... 🙂 I ended up loving this character so badly that I am tempted to make it my main sajhrkasrhak I.. don't want to draw all that gold again tho x_______x

I've never seen anyone besides me do armpit horns so... You know who started the trend if you start seeing it someplace else 👀 Not that any of my strange ideas will catch on, but it would be cool to be known for them 8)

Thank you so much for being here for me guys. It is a massive motivation to keep me pushing on. It is crazy to me that there are people out there who even wants to look at the things I make and see what I do next ;_;<3 It's even crazier that I've uploaded art for soon three years now, and some of you have been here long enough to see me actually improve, even if just a tiny bit sajkraksjrh I'm very quiet most of the time, so I guess I just felt the need to elaborate on my gratitude for once. If you've read all this then you're the best ;A; Seriously. Thank you.

I'm proud of you and i literally just started looking at your gallery today. Your work is really inspiring to me you've earned my respect with just a few pieces. The character is absolutely radiant and statuesque. I think the armpit hors are interesting it kinda of reminds me of Japanese statues of thunder gods. I like the little floaty do-dad (didn't know what to call it) in the middle I don't know what it is but I don't care its cool. Thats part of the fun. I just read its a core and now i feel like an idiot. Oh well. I like the idea of how they breath fire or light its really badass. If i had to some up my opinion in one word it would be elegant. You are seriously one of the best if not the best dragon creator I've ever seen. Amazing work!

I know the feel of "Oh I´m just doing a quick doodle/sketch of the character" and then WOOOP fullbody fullshaded monstrosity of time consuming painting XD
But imo this was worth it on this piece. i like the color combination of this dragon and I´m very attached to the wing design! Also he´s quite shiny. Shiny dragons are love <3

yessssss I do XD so many pictures started and never finished because it just became too much to handle for my dumb little brain.....

Also yussss finally someone understanding the absolute fabolousness of sparkles! Sparkles are Life, sparkles are love! (I even have a joke character who only revolves around the fact that he´s so fabolous that he´s constantly surrounded by sparkles, which can make people choke on them :`D )

And you´re very welcome :>

It defnitely didn't take me a month to comment on this picture, nope, definitely not ;-;
I was planning to write a novel of a comment, but a sudden realization of "I don't want to bother you even more" struck me so all I am gonna say is that Rigel is a beautiful bean which has a wonderous design and a masterfully inspirational idea. I am really proud of you and can't wait to se more of her ;____;!!!

YOU'VE ALREADY COMMENTED LOTS TO ME OUTSIDE DA, I AM DROWNING IN YOUR KIND AND THOUGHTFUL COMMENTS AND PRAISE 😭😭😭😭😭😭
As much as I love, am moved by and overwhelmed by your novels, they take a lot out of me to reply to. That doesn't mean I don't like them any less though, and you're definitely not a bother. I'm blessed to get a comment from you Nih 😭😭😭 You could write one sentence or spam me emoji and I'd be equally grateful ;__; It probably takes a lot out of you too to write so much, so please don't feel like you need to write lots to be appreciated, nor that you are a bother for commenting no matter the length. At least if you write me shorter comments, then I can rest easy knowing you have time to reach more people and make their day too Heart Just thank you so much for all you do for others Nihalla, and for your kind words ;___;

Oh wow. This is amazing design! Reminds me baroque style, looks so luxury. Oh, and this realistic shading, i'm at awe!

TeisolHobbyist Digital Artist
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH 😭😭😭😭 THANK YOU OWLBARREL??
It means a lot that you think so ;___; If it looks like baroque then I am really glad! It's what I was taking inspiration from. Can't not love endless intricate detail... though it HURTS to draw it >.<
owlbarrel's avatar
owlbarrelHobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, doing details is painful, but in the end all the struggle pays back, and the result for sure looks amazing :3
And you're welcome! Your art always looks amazing!

Thank you so much Alaska ;____;Heart You're too kind to me sdajkrhkas
Can't not love some silver and gold 😭😭😭 The grey is supposed to be glass though, so it'll have multiple colors depending on the background. I'm just not... very good at painting glass and the grey background didn't help I suppose xD... So it looks more like silver here. Silver would be really cool too though 😭😭😭😭

I was actually really afraid of posting this because I realized too late that the vase I was taking inspiration from had me make a character that looked a bit too scarily similar to your amazing character Cypress >.<... Besides their colors they aren't anything alike, but still... Can't help worrying you'd flay me alive or get bothered somehow x___x I do find it rather cool that we'd end up with somewhat similar characters despite most likely being inspired by completely different things, but it's pretty awful it can be really hard to prove it in general situations >.< I don't mind showing you the references I used if that would help in anyway though ;_; 
Alaskahla's avatar
AlaskahlaHobbyist Digital Artist
Oh glass!! Now that's really neat! I should've read the colors and materials at the bottom hahah!! 
And dude no way!! Rigel is totally unique, Cypress is plenty different from this amazing guy, I'm not bothered whatsoever!! I didn't even think about Cy when I saw this guy lmao, he's super beautiful and certainly super distinctive!

Yea I’m proud of yew X3

when you have time, (but only if you want to and have time) could you try and do Lorikeet for me? Lorikeet is a RainWIng from Wings Of Fire. She has green scales with a dark blue underbelly, and golden horns/nose horn/cheek horn, and she has a medium pink on the inside of her ear. Again, don’t trouble yourself, but if you want to it would be greatly appreciated.

TeisolHobbyist Digital Artist
Awe thank you Lorikeet ;__;!

I sadly can't accept requests for various reasons x_x.. It means a lot that you like my drawings enough to want to entrust me with your precious character though 😭😭😭😭
Ask-Lorikeet's avatar
Ask-LorikeetHobbyist Artist
Oh, no problem! I just tagged all of the artists that inspire me and I’ll see who decides to do it. I understand that you’re busy with your amazing art and all, and that is totally fine.
