Flying Weather by pallanoph

More sketch commissions, more dinosaurs! :heart:

Wren, a winged parasaurolophus for Bueshang, who was a ton of fun to draw.

Latest piece, a gouache portrait for wyrd66 of her awesome characters: Radon the garmair with two of his hawken, Dances and Sunny! (Cutting Glass and Rock are hanging out in the distance, Rock looking perfectly... rock-like.) :XD:

I love gouache, I love Wyrd's characters, and I love painting feathers. So this was a win-win-win.

Commissions are still open! View the price guide on my profile page if interested.

I'm really hoping this shows up. :I

I'm sure you're tired to death of me here, but I gotta get to the bottom of things.

What Your Soul Sings by pallanoph I don't think this showed up in anyone's inbox this afternoon. I also have a sneaking suspicion I'm not seeing works from other people.

So! Did it show up in your inbox? I'm not asking people to care about my work, but the purpose of me uploading things is because I want to share and have things be seen, and if things aren't being seen, that kind of defeats the purpose.

I could rant, but I'll save it. Ranting does nothing except make me feel clear headed for an hour or two.

In the meantime, commissions are still open! I'm looking for sketches and quick/smaller work in particular while I tackle the next two large pieces in my queue. Also, I'm planning on digging out art for sale, which I hope to post here by the end of the week, if I'm lucky.

To all of you: Thanks for sticking around, and I hope you are well!

Yet another colored pencil/lighting experiment, using my pallanoph character, Sorstan. Unfortunately he is oddly cropped since I ran out of room due to my usual poor planning skills.

I am trying to figure out if I want him to have entirely pale eyes, or if I should add a limbal ring to them, which I added here. Jury's still out on that one.

Caran d'Ache colored pencils on toned strathmore paper.

What? You wanted me to stop? I'm so sorry, I just can't hear you.

I've honestly been throwing myself into color a lot more lately, even if my gallery doesn't show it. This was a self-imposed palette challenge, where I took a limited range of colors I'd never consider using together: yellows/greens, red, and hints of violet. To put things into perspective, none of my violet colored pencils have been used more than a handful of times, and even then, only for little touches. Also, attempting to use a cool-ish light source with warm reddish/purple shadows. The end result was.... interesting.

I think I made sunlight appear morbid and apprehensive. The critter depicted is one of my Ynderrogs, a female. Like a unicorn, but not. :XD:

Title nicked from the Boards of Canada song of the same name, which provided the mood for part of this piece.

Caran d'Ache colored pencils with touches of Derwent here and there on Strathmore grey-toned paper. Roughly 5.5 x 9", 13.97 x 22.86 cm.
