Something I desperately wanted to finish before starting my commission queue. I'm glad I was able to submit something personal, since my recent submissions all belong to other people and I couldn't find the time to work on my own characters. It's been awhile since I last drew something so detailed. It's also the last picture of Tiamat in her older form. (Yes, I changed her again!) But don't worry, I won't change too much. Just getting rid of all of her feathers. ALL feathers. I grew tired of this concept and she was never supposed to have feathers to begin with. Back then I wasn't able to draw her old wings right, that's when I decided to use feathers instead. Now I found something that suits her better.

I'll edit this tomorrow. It's terribly late right now and I probably wrote a lot of bullshit in my recent condition. XD
Also... I need a new wrist.

Last but not least a super big THANK YOU to Felina-Colibra who was helping me and cheering me up all the time while I was working on this. There were several moments I almost lost my nerves and had the greatest desire to throw my graphic tablet right out of the window!

And thanks to everyone who supported me over the last time. I never thought people here would miss me so much! I'm glad to be back!! Love you guys.

Yours truly,

Wow, this is awesome. Such an attention to detail and yet the atmosphere of the picture i not lost in it and the depth is gorgeous, too!

Vertebrates are tetrapods, not hexapods.
The wings are nothing else than transformed upper limbs due to evolution, not an additional 3rd pair of limbs.
