I’m not dead! This is a long overdue commission for WhiteMantis on Flight Rising, of Aroc the ridgeback dragon. I worked on this in between fall semester classes, and finally wrapped it up this Thanksgiving break.

The most challenging, yet rewarding, part of this commission to paint by far was the gold wing silks. Will definitely paint more reflective/transparent surfaces in the future!


Well here’s the entire 2014-2015 roster including the controversial one. Good Merry!

Cyrin - @artofcarmen

Ashiji - Ashi

Alizee - @dalehan

Sivv - @vaigh

Cinder - @norasuko-art

Kenny - Ken Ashcorp

Nae - @whitemantis

Cteno - @slugboxcreatureart

These were all a lot of fun, I feel like I learned a lot. Of course commissions are still open until the end of the year(and discounted even)so there’s still time to get in on this series.

Until next time, whenever that may be, I wish you all the best.

Finishing up commissions in my Flight Rising art backlog, starting with a fullbody commission of WhiteMantis’s ridgeback Aroc. Being a fullbody this is just a preview of the completed painting that I hope to finish within a week while diving into fall semester classes, also he’s wearing a skin! Hence the black eyeliner, eyebrows and golden spines.

ooh nae♥ sweet and beautiful character owned by whitemantis​ I wanted to draw a little fanart for  

and to be honest, I could draw her all day. But best not to do that. 

I made a few mistakes here and there OTL but noticed it first when I was almost done which is typical me.
