Rhais by pallanoph Rhais by pallanoph
Another line art commission, this one for =Draenian of her character, Rhais. I told you there was going to be a small flood of these. And no color! I have a right to torture you, I suppose. :lol: I will be keeping these smaller commissions open until further notice.

I rarely draw anthro (except I have to show you silly were-noph at some point) so this was a fun little exercise. It's also a pretty good excuse to practice more human anatomy and clothing. I have so much to learn! That aside, I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out. It helps the character was fun to draw. :D

To =Draenian I hope he looks alright! :dance:

All of these line art commissions are done in India ink with a 108 Hunt nib on bristol vellum. I couldn't do it digitally to save my life. :B

Rhais belongs to =Draenian
Art April Schumacher

Forgive me if this sounds like an inane question, but these are all done with dip pens? :noes:

Oh yes. :meow: For me, they're the only way I can get a lot of variation in line weight while using only one nib. Microns and felt tips are all very well, but you've got to have a ton to get different lines, and they seem a bit pale in comparison to bottled india ink. (I also like to make things hard for myself. :XD:)

Aha... I asked because I'm learning to use dip pens at the moment, and find them incredibly hard to get the hang of, so something like this seemed very masochistic. =p They're pretty awesome when one can use them well though.

A good excuse to practice the anatomy and clothing eh? It looks flawless! =D I'm especially envious at your skill drawing the hands here, the pose itself is strong and interesting too and the...tail floof... :wow:

I'm definitely intrigued to see this silly were-noph one day! ;P

I love drawing hands, even if I can't always get them right. :D There are so many poses I'd like to try out, but don't always get around to doing it.

I ought to post him one of these days, if people can stand yet another sketch on the pile!

Sometimes I feel the same. :nod: Though in my case, it's because I can't always sum up the will to paint. ^^;

This looks really great! I really like the feet and legs, which I feel can make or break an anthro piece. Also his tail looks so fluffy~

Haha, awesome. It's neat that the little clothing design I whipped up for him stuck through into this commission. You made her character look so neat!

:D I have one hell of a time designing clothing for characters, sometimes I have nightmares about it. So when I see something that already works well, I use it! :lol: So thank you! :aww:

He is sooooo sexy! That pose, he's all like "Hey ladies, come and see this sexy beast" :drool:
Love the detailing on his fur and the clothing! You do an excellent job on Anthros. Also, your linework is awesome, you have a very steady hand :D!
Thank you so much again, this made my morning :D!

:giggle: Now if only I could understand costuming better... I tend to rely on what's given to me, so it's good I had something to go off of! :D

It helps for me to not consume much caffeine while working on these, because it'd look much more rough with the shaking. :XD: All in all, he was fun to sketch and ink. :la:

Thank you! :aww:

Lol, clothing is a fickle thing. I'm not good at that sort of thing either, hence why =FireMaster13 created the clothing on him XD!
Hey you did good with Adelaide's outfit on her ref! So there you go LOL

I agree with that! Caffeine and it's affects I tell ya lol.

I'm glad he wasn't a pain in the arse :D! Haha no problem ^-^

Thanks! It's a bit tricky to get it sorted with a dip pen, since it's so easy to catch on the paper and splatter. But of course, I insist on doing things the hard way. :lol: Doesn't keep it from being fun to draw, at least!
