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!
I love whitemantis‘s work, her characters and worlds are wonderful. If you haven’t seen her work already, go check it out. This outfit doesn’t fit the world of Shattered but I just wanted to draw beautiful Saa in something adorable.
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.
