If I had my way, I wouldn't be submitting a bit of colored work/work with backgrounds until I had to. The rest of you can paint all you'd like, and throw color every which way, but I have to admit my only real strength (if you can even call it that) lies in lines. </ramble>
Here we have a line art commission for ~ElementalSpirits
of her Deron character, Blade. She asked that he be drawn a little less canine in terms of his anatomy, and I'm beginning to wonder if I pulled that off, which is surprising, since I have such a hard time drawing canines correctly. ._. He's far more interesting than your ordinary woof, methinks.
Besides, he can harness the power of lightning! (Yes, it's meant to be ball lightning.) That aspect may have been a bit tough, but regardless, I really enjoyed drawing him.
Dip pen (108 Hunt nib) with Speedball India ink (the best!) on bristol vellum, 11x14".
I swear, if I get bombed with commission requests for ridiculous emo woof critters and/or sparkledogs of the sort that plague dA, I will run back into my dark corner with nary a word. Eeks!
(Of course, this isn't directed at anyone who has commissioned me thus far. Thanks to all of YOU for everything. Really!)
Blade the Deron belongs to ~ElementalSpirits
