Premium Commission for ~KigaWeirdo
:star: This is a commission, please no crits unless you are the commisisoner!

I wanted to make it look like he was rising up/being born out of the very earth and flames...
I think I got it! :meow:

anyway, I was really keen on this idea, I finally got to draw some sacred beast of my favorite element: FIREEEEEEE.

PLUSSSS
I got to create the character myself, so this was like
TOTAL ARTISTIC FREEDOM WHOO HOOOOO!
:iconpyrodanceplz:




Illustration is mine.
Character was created by my own interpretation of the commissioner's idea!
Textures are from: [link] and my own personal stock.
No references.

I've admired this piece for a long time now. It's been my desktop background more than once, it was even my phone's screen for a while. I've shown it to my mother and a few of my artistically inclined friends and even done some sketches based on it myself. Funny how I never thought to comment on it until today. I pulled it up to show my boyfriend because I`d like to paint a mural of it for my home. ( I would have ordered a print but unfortunetly the sizes available are really quite small :( ). Anyway, I absolutely love it, someone once told me that art is art because it makes you feel something, in that case you are quite the artist!

Did you this whole piece digitally?
Lately I'm having hard time balancing the smoothness of digital media and the rough-randomness of real watercolor.

Ginnunga Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010
The lines are done in dark art pencil, then scanned, and painted in PS element 5.0 :meow:

I know what you mean! I think I'm going to actually try doing real ink lines, then scanning and coloring as always. :D I wanna see what I can do with it! :dance:

Awesome! Can't wait to see the result. :D

Most of my recent experimental works are never finished.
And most of them are poke-doodles anyway.
*too lazy to think of something original, so I did fan arts instead. for the sake of technique practicing

So I thought I'd rather not submit them here. o__o
