Jade and Tsu by pallanoph Jade and Tsu by pallanoph
I told you more sketchpiles were coming. (Anyone bawwing due to lack of colored submissions yet?) :lol: I haven't even been able to manage more than 15-20 minute personal sketches, and those are hardly worth uploading. So more commission sketches it'll be! :D

Here we have *Domyr's chimera, Jade (on the top), who is a delightful blend of deer, bat, wolf, and fox. The bat wings attempted to trick me again, but I think after two commissions including such structures, I'm finally learning. :D I think the trick is to not draw them while flying. :XD: I hope he looks menacing enough!

Tsu, the oriental dragon beastie on the bottom was commissioned by *Domyr for *tsubelle and was more tricky to place in that space than I care to admit. (Also, I notice I'm unintentionally drawing things facing left again, ugh.) Lots of flow, and a lot of strands to keep track of!

These make for such good exercises, though I fear my color skills are getting rusty. They'll be put to work soon enough, though, so don't fear.

Characters belong to *Domyr and *tsubelle respectively.

I like the different animals being combined, especially in the chimera. It's nice to see something unusual like bat wings, they look accurate and definitely help give the chimera a "menacing" air. Overall just a nice set of sketches :thumbsup:

If I didn't mind the mess and had lots of space, I'm betting she'd look much more alive in a large-ish charcoal drawing. :D But I'll make do with these smaller pencil sketches instead. :XD: Thanks!
