Chasing Hummingbirds by Araless Chasing Hummingbirds by Araless
Way more detailed than actually planned. All started when I wanted to dragonize my gf's character Felina, a caracal-hummingbird-chameleon hybrid. I thought she would look really nice as valkyrie dragon. This way I'm able to show another example beside Tiamat. My love for cel shading has returned :3
I'm going to offer something like this as commission soon~
Lineart is 100% handmade.

Wow, die Farben und die ganzen Details sind mal wieder klasse *_*
Ich liebe diese hellen Lichteffekte und die dynamische Pose.
Wiedermal klasse Anatomie und Perspektive.
Diese Feder ähnlichen Schuppen gefallen mir auch sehr :D

Ich freue mich auf mehr deiner Werke!

I especially like the similarities these two share, but at the same time they are very different. Impressing.
The cell-shading is cool and well done, but it isn´t as dramatic as realistic(?) shadowing.
But I shouldn´t be complaining I should be staring ;) well done!

Yes, she's a very colorful example for this species, unlike Tiamat! Also personality-wise. Pretty much the opposite.
Well, everyone prefers a different style. I like both cel shading and realism equal and I use them equal ^^
Realistic shading takes a lot more time. Sometimes I enjoy doing something 'easier'.
Thank you very much! :heart:

Schuppen über Schuppen.... Beim Linieren ist mir fast die Hand abgefallen XD
Normalerweise wären die Schuppen noch feiner (vor allem am Schwanz) aber so übertrieben genau wollte ich es dann doch nicht haben. Ein andern mal~

Thank you very very much Sez! x3
Your comments are always so motivating! I'm glad I was finally able to create the final design for this species. I'm going to make an "aging sheet" as well. Older Valkyrerjar's grow a biiig feathered mane. Looks quite majestic :)
Loooove cel shading! <3<3<3 I have to resist the desire to cel-shade everything I draw XD
You should totally try!
Oh yes, the hummingbird^^
It's the mascot of my friend so I add to add it in there~
