Aurora autumni by noctem-tenebris Aurora autumni by noctem-tenebris
My little part for this month's :iconshinxchange: of :icondemonml: 's character Rayliff. This was a different challenge, I wanted to take on the winged form and I wanted to play with the perspective a bit. So this piece was a huge experiment completely. It was both color and greyscale...(I can't seem to figure out how to color my backgrounds..they still seem somewhat off driving me bonkers) But All in all I learned some things and rather enjoyed playing around with the character . She was a bit different, haven't worked with purple in awhile so I had fun playing around with her. Wasn't really sure how I was going to start this..it just kinda happened then became puzzle solving afterwards but I am generally pleased with the result. :D

Artwork is to me :iconthirteenth-sanction:

Character Rayliff is to the lovely :icondemonml:

Nice work, the colors look very natural to me and there's a nice ammount of details. The fur on the character's mane looks particulary well done. I am not sure, it could be just my monitor but some of the shadows are a bit too dark, like the shadows of the forest. Black and white, those two tend to tear holes in a colorful composition. Overall, nice character design and execution.

oh wow, this came out so pretty! for some reason I can't stop staring at that face and hair. that mane looks like you could run your fingers right through it. love the perspective and composition too.
you ma'am, are ridiculous. stop making such lovely art or I may end up conjuring some magic scissors and going after the Risaldins and their fabulous locks. then I shall no longer be under the influence of le locks :evillaugh:
(wow, I think I need sleep or something XD)

Nah I doubt you could have the heart to do that. Besides I could always just redraw them in XD. That is the power of creation after all. Besides what would you do without said luscious locks? And I can't stop making art, not in my nature :( :P

lol no prob. She was a different character from my norms but it was a fun experiment regardless, I had lots of fun. And I'm extremely honored you like how I handled her, I really wanted to put my best foot forward with this picture and your comment makes me feel I met that. I'm really really happy you like it so.

An interesting kind of Dragon you've drawn here. He's drawn very nicely, i like his claws very much. I think you are very good at drawing claws, which can be seen good on the wingclaws, too.
Hope to see more Dragons from you, soon :3

aww you are welcome.
Such great drawings like this one, make me always wonder if you might would do another Commission. I mean it would be very interesting to see how you would draw certain OC's of me. (myself i've already seen, hehe ^^)

I'm very busy the last time, so i couldn't write much more to your great drawings.
I'm curious what you'll draw next :3

I really like how detailed the background is here. :la: For being an experiment, the perspective still looks really good, even though the dragon confused me for just a second. No worries, it's unique and still quite different from your darker work.  Oh, and the dragon looks great, too. :squee:

Well I am capable on drawing many types of things however people tend to like certain things more than others. 3 years it's been like this but I'm doing what I feel like now. I am glad you like the pic though..stayed up way to late doing this. But for an experiment between greyscale and color it came out well I think.

I think that's how it is with alot of people--watchers focused on one thing that the artist does instead of their entire range.  Experimenting is usually always fun for me, and this certainly came out well for being one. :la:

Well I am not just a dragon artist nor do I wish to be labeled as it. Soo this year I'm focused a lot more on my story and such. Yeah I'll be doing dragons but I won't be doing them every upload. I finally have the time to work on my story now that my list is nearly done and I need some me time.

You always do splendid art... I find your color balances to be very harmonious and complete. A very nice balance if you ask me.

 

And I am well... bust and tired by well. xD
