Character: Konqi, mascot of KDE and other KDE Dragons, mascots of the KDE Community
Konqi the little dragon is the mascot of KDE, a free and open source software community since 1996. It hosts projects from software frameworks, desktop environment to various applications. My primary digital painting tool, Krita, is one of their work.
Now the design has been refined, giving Konqi a cuter face, less sharp-looking antlers, longer, meaty limbs to do various poses and a more elastically looking tail. The color palette received small tweaks to make the outlines look lighter. I’m going to need a long time to create all his friends though!

I hope you like my new design!This collection of pictures is licensed under Creative Commons BY-SA /GNU GPL / LGPL /GFDL. I hereby donate them along with the design concept to KDE, so there won’t be any copyright issues that might hold them back. (Just in case!)
Special thanks to Stefan Spatz, the original designer. I deliberately based my new design on his former one, showing the continuity of spirit.
Also, special thanks to Jos Poortvliet who requested me for stock pictures, leading to the creation of these pictures.

Love drawing your characters, they're all so adorable and precious!
I can sketch a little reference sheet for myself knowing that, thanks TysonTan! This helps me with Kiki too.
p.s. do you have a commision sheet // do commisions?
p.s.s. have you considered adding the technologies used in "lubuntu" to kde?
and , once again. thats freaking epic dude! can u pm me what art books you studied out of.. i want to be your prede-sessor
My FA page was updated a year ago with new links to my current places.
I'm not doing commission at the moment.
I'm not a programmer or even a KDE insider. These pictures were requested by KDE's new editor. If you want to request a feature, the best way is to file a wishlist bug report or post on their forum and IRC.
I haven't been reading many books on painting intensively, but I'm planning to do that later.
