100% Colored pencils and Traditional technique

I have to admit that this is the first colored mythological beast that i do, and i am very happy with the resuts, i am proud of how i did it. And for a first try i think is very decent. :hug:

I had fun ding this work indeed. As you can see from my other work this is quite different, the background is not "the same" as the other ones. I put roses, cristals and even a moon with a beautifull night sky that fits the characters very well. (I tried to make this background more "personal")

This characters is *Mistress-of-Air Original Character who has the same name as her account: Mistress of Air. I had a lot of fun doing it, specially ding and calculating the wings, that had to be in a 13-15-17-19 sequence. And her tail who should have 11 feathers. ^^

This drawing is not gonna be with me, because i am gonna send it by mail. As soon as i "create" and account on DHL this drawing will fly to Finland! :la:

I hope you all like it, and if someone wants to leave me a critique, i really apreciatte it.

Elapsed time: Not felling! :dummy:
Tools: :bulletred:24 set of STAEDLER Ergosoft ABS colorpencils and a ballpoint pen. And Photoshop to cut the image with the CROP TOOL! :dummy:
Paper Size: A4

Character is copyrighter to *Mistress-of-Air

FUCKING BAM! i look at this and feel like i just got punched in the face by the picture! (5 for impact :D)
i love this. its amazing. its everything a drawing should be! its like... wow. I don't know where to start.

i'll start with the colour. well. the colours go so well together. when i first saw it, i was overwhelmed by the vibrancy of the colours. so bright. especially the wings. the way it has been put toghether, light dark light dark contrasts beautifully and looks as if the colour is constantly moving and radiating out of the wings. it also works well with the darker body of the animal reflecting the brightness of the wings. the two factors contrast brilliantly.

Paul has used very.... "flowing lines" they are not rigid and straight, giving the painting are more realistic feel but at the same time, the feeling of the painting being so ethereal is simply brlliant. its something that people would awe at, but all the same be afraid of its brilliance.

Even thought this is someone elses "character" you have taken it and and made it your own through your respective style. and the product is amazing. even the fine details, from the coarseness of the fur, to the smooth feathers. everything is amazing. i see nothing wrong at all

i love how the eye is drawn to the red stone, which is isolated from the rest of the picture, surrounded by white light which breaks the natural background as if to say "FUCKING LOOK AT ME! IM IMPORTANT!"

i could have summed that up with a simple. jesus fucking christ
good job buddy.

lightning is better then vanille :P

AWESOME!!! :iconlawooplz: Lost count of how many times I said that. :XD:

Love the background! :dummy: The roses look incredible and pretty realistic. The colours in the sky look amazing. The moon looks pretty interesting. :) Mistress of Air looks just amazing - especially the wings. :D The crystals look brilliant as well; almost realistic. I also love the circles with Mistress of Air's name.

Wonderful! The colours on the wings go perfectly together. Same goes for the beast and the orbs/roses above. Personally, I would have left out the yellow and green on the flowers below, because it would look more harmonic then, but in general, it's an excellent drawing. Especially these feathers. <3

Dang. That is all I have to say. I haven't been on here in a good 3 months, but I knew this art work was yours because of the brilliant usage of the colors. This picture just blew me the heck away and it reminded me why I joined DA. I joined because I wanted to witness beautiful and colorful art like yours. I love how the picture came out and I can't wait to see more. :aww:
