Kiriban for Golddragon by noctem-tenebris Kiriban for Golddragon by noctem-tenebris
One of the of the winners of my Recent Kiriban. :icong0lddragon: of his character Kin. I played around with this one a lot....not quite satisfied with it mostly because I was trying to find ways to blend Kin's light coloration without making it too dark.. I may return back to this one when I have time but at the moment I just can't go farther with it. It's funny how this simple character kicked my ass XD But I also had some help from the lovely :iconshinerai: she helped me to better understand wings and also gave me some great advice to better work on my composition. Soo thanks soo much for the help. And a special thanks to my BF for the support through this madness XD.

Character is to :icong0lddragon:

Artwork is to me:iconthirteenth-sanction:

This looks like one you showed me recently, and it looks like you really worked to get the lighting just so. Gorgeous atmosphere and atmospheric perspective going on here :)

Where this image stands, I find it strikingly breathtaking at where the image stands currently, it is detailed, and you can only do as good a you can, so as it it is any help that one can get does not hurt either. I like the take on this dragon it looks quite detailed, and the background looks like something seen in the mountains of the western US, the light I feel is very dynamic kike HDR toning of twilight, so in that, well done. :) :thumbsup:

holy sweet mother of I don't even know..
this just looks..
I don't even..
I can't even think of what to say.
I can't even finish a sentence O.o
I just love it owo
I remember the day I won your Kiriban I was probably flipping ****

haha that's the tricky part about Kin. When it comes to the fact that he is an albino but when you try to shade him it looks kinda off and doesn't necessarily fit the background for some reason is one of the things that gets a LOT of people. Like, I can't even figure this one out, and I made him! xD despite the fact the is such a simple char, there is always that ONE thing that messes people up~

Thank you so much for doing this x3 I couldn't ask for anything better than this x3

Wow, this is gorgeous. I really like the textures of the trees and the mountains, and the lighting is just perfect <3 There's just this lovely, mystical and calming atmosphere.
I know the character was giving you trouble, but I think you pulled it off well! :D The pose is flowing and eye-catching, and I like how you altered the colours slightly to fit in with the background, I think it looks great that way :>
All in all, beautiful piece! <3 It really turned out great, despite the challenges. Oh you, and your talent :b
