Facade by GoldenGriffiness

First, let me say I love the dark, rough-edged energy this pic has. There's an intentional savagery to the scene and I think you captur...

The overall composition I love as well as the visual parallel of his eyes. There's just something a bit off. I'm thinking the face shap...

Hope You're Feline Better Soon by Ashen-Phoenix
Hope You're Feline Better Soon
A get-well card I made for my grandma, who's recovering from hip surgery. Pose based off an adorable Skitty fanart.

The program crashed after 3+ hours of working on this, so I had to start over from scratch. Only a labor of love could get me to give this another go after so much frustration. Glad I did, though; very happy with the end result.

Inked with Sakura Micron pens, colored in GIMP.

We're All Mad Here by Ashen-Phoenix
We're All Mad Here
A recent design for work. A student asked if we could combine the Cheshire Cat with a dragon. It was too cool an idea for me to pass up. Had a lot of fun trying to balance the various takes I've seen and incorporating the more draconic elements so they made sense.

I grew up with Disney's take on the iconic cat, so while I adore the Tim Burton version too I had to stick with the color scheme of the cartoon.

The scanner mucked up the colors a lot so that was funny.

Inked with Sakura Micron pens, colored with Prisma pencils (so much love for the colorless blending pencils; my new favorite thing)

Something In The Air by Ashen-Phoenix
Something In The Air
A surprise gift for a friend's upcoming wedding. I had a lot of fun deciding on the colors so they complimented each other but were still visually distinct. Getting the petals to look unnaturally natural was a challenge because I tend towards symmetry lol.

The influence of Pokemon on my childhood is showing, I know. :XD:

Sketched, inked with Sakura Microns, colored with Prisma pencils.

Lava-lace redesign - Inked by Ashen-Phoenix
Lava-lace redesign - Inked
Inked version of my latest redesign. Just the inking took me a full day because I was so tired at that point every line left me stressed and fidgety, but I'm so happy with the end result. It was aaall worth it. :w00t:

The sketchy lines at the bottom of the wings are left over for when I color this, to remind me where those lines are (They'll be colored lines so I didn't ink them in black). You can read more details about the process on the sketch post.

Edit: You can view the sketch version of this redesign here, the original bust here, and the color test of the bust here.

Lava-lace redesign - sketch by Ashen-Phoenix
Lava-lace redesign - sketch
Finalized the redesign for my lava-laced dragon this week. It took a while to decide what I wanted to keep from the original bust and what I wanted to change. No matter how many times or ways I redid them the tail spikes didn't look quite the way I wanted so I left them off, and went with a more pared-down style for the legs (overabundance of details is my kryptonite).

Funny enough, the wing membranes gave me a bit of trouble lol. I've had a soft spot for skinnier, agile dragon designs ever since I saw Spirited Away (Haku being partially based off of a dog stuck with me too). :heart:

Did very little clean up after scanning. I wanted to show how much redoing when into this (I adjusted the feet, wing-tips, and horns a great deal, as well as the exact fluffiness of the tail).
