Commission for Julia, their lady catcher Lilith!
yay, this my first pearlcatcher! ;u;
this is also my adventures in mediums that don’t show well in scanners part two - the gold paint I used is beautiful and glittery in real life, but turns out dull and brown when scanned. So I had to once again take a photograph (thank god I have an excellent SLR camera) and try to find the right angle with light to get the gold pop out… :„,D
I’m really content on how this turned out though! I always ask with maned dragons if the commissioner has some kind of personality for the dragon so I could draw inspiration for “hairstyle” from there. Commissioner suggested Lilith could have some kind of Victorian braided hairdo and I got really excited, I went through my massive reference folder and found some old photography reference from the Victorian era and drew inspiration from there. c:

And to celebrate my flight change here’s Glittermama ;u; it’s ridiculous I just today jumped in light but I really wanted to finish this… she is one of my favorite deities (even though she looks a bit like an evil kangaroo here oops)! Lantern is referenced from here.
Lightweaver is beautiful and divine and probably quietly chimes when she floats around as she lures her prey closer anD RIPS THEIR THROATS yes this is my headcanon (I will probably draw this later as well : D)
Lightweaver belongs to Flight Rising and Neondragon @ dA

My first official fanart of Flight Rising c:

hih, this was the other surprise I mentioned `u´flieswiththewinddragon had her b-day last week, I usually can’t bring myself to finish birthday cards for people but ever since coatls came out I’ve wanted to draw a version of them I like better. I didn’t want to draw just any random coatl and I don’t own one, and my bby here really likes them and she has my Shalim’s little girl Maruna coatl’d so she ended up as my victim. c:
There’s three reasons I don’t like coatls (besides them being visually much more cluttered than the other breeds), which are 1) those fucking ear and wing swirls wtf what they even are, 2) wings lacking anatomy and 3) even more anatomy breaking buttwings. So I added proper wing anatomy, scrapped the swirls and buttwings and made up for the lacking pair of wings with a decorative set of feathers, inspired by peacocks (after I had sketched this I actually noticed that coatls do indeed have something similar in their wings! So it wasn’t too farfetched c:)If coatls looked like this I’d get a dozen, I love the chest fluff so much. ; w ;
Used properly mixed media after such a long time which was a breeze! Base is done mostly with watercolors, everything on it is with colored pencils and white acrylic paint. Hood is shaded with markers. I really loved working on this, I’m extremely sorry this got in the way of my commission queue but I hope everyone can understand I wanted to finish little something for my friend’s b-day!

I finally started playing The Endless Forest (it’s been sitting on my growing pile of “check later” for at least two years) and oh deer dear ;u; TEF really stole my heart. We’ll see if I have the time and energy to actually become active in the community but this is my current baby deer(-owl-koi) and it’s the most adorable thing ever ;_; I don’t have a name for it yet, though!
Sorry my picto is so lazily drawn :I I should probably make a vector out of it for easier use. Koi were referenced from various sources. It was really lovely to work primarily with colored pencils after such a long time, I really need to take my old bby medium back in use!

Phew, this is finally ready! I agreed to trade art for one of Nabesima's (nabesima in Tumblr as well) gorgeous kingfisher imps, and they wanted me to try out something a bit simpler and cuter than my usual semi-realistic dragon drawings. I thought why not and it was lovely to work with Copics again after such a long time but I think I ended up using more time with this than my regular commissions… so these will not come cheap if someone wants a comm like this (unlike I first planned :c)
So, experiment failed (sort of) but I need to keep trying different styles!
I’m content in the end result anyway, this is Nabesima’s grumpy dancer lady Malsey and she’s probably not amused because I didn’t give her chocolate. Sorry gurl.

Commission for Rude! Their imp lady Stella.
wow I loved drawing such a happy bright girl :,D I had to go the extra mile to get this on my computer since the fluorescent neon pink copic I used for the circuit to get it pop out didn’t for some reason show in my scanner?? So camera it was.

Winter deer photoshooting

We tried to take pictures of more winter themed deer makeups with Annu and Milia yesterday but when we finally got ourselves ready it was already pretty dark oh dear

this picture summarizes the short shoot and -15°C weather pretty well

but fear not! We’ve planned to try again in a week or two, and now that the winter finally arrived in Finland as well we shouldn’t have a shortage of snow…

ben-hornigold asked: Ahhhhh your art is sooo pretty ;w; You did the Valentines AC art for me - Thank you again! Your Connor and Ziio art is the best

yes, I remember! o v o I’m so glad you like my art!
I’m still really content on how mama Ziio and Connor turned out but the background was pretty hideous, I’ve been playing with a possibility to edit it completely in Photoshop, I’ll message you if I do because it was a Valentine’s card for you after all! :,D

collegecowgirl asked: was your last post mixed medium?

In a sense, yes! It’s fully done with watercolors, but the snow is added with white acrylic paint c:
