Ladies with snakes

Snakes and women - two things I like in a lot of pics. ;)

First off, what is this little songbird? I must say, those shiny green feathers stand out! What's the scientific and/or common name of ...

Time consuming drawing? Totally worth however many hours you put into it. Seriously, this is amazing- every single minute you put into ...

Probably the best use for the villains in 5D's...

Ryuu Kagune - Tokyo Ghoul Fanwork.
A little present for my new friend :iconseasonalastronomer:. :) It's the 'tail' of her dragon-ish Tokyo Ghoul fan character, Ryuu! :dance: 

It's crazy how fun these things are for me. Like, I'm used to drawing disembodied parts as refs already. This...this is almost the niche for that style. I'm scared. O.o; 

Everything belongs to its original creators, etc. etc. I just make disembodied body parts with pretty colors. :lol: 
Lizard Mountain- Dragon design. by KuroKarasu
Lizard Mountain- Dragon design.
I am going to let you all in on a little secret: I fail at digital art. Hard. It's not for lack of practice, either- I've been messing with graphics programs since I was a kid, have played around on a tablet, and taken a graphics design course. I know what a layer is, and, occasionally, how to use one. I can adjust brightness, contrast, and levels just fine. 

But when it comes to translating my traditional art gifts (or what I have of them) to digital? Things go horribly wrong and the result looks like awful, MS Paint-y crap. That's why I'm putting this up here: so that people who like digital format can have a guinea pig, and so that I have another thing format-transcripted into digital. 

A few things: 

-"This is too complicated!" I have more complicated designs worthy of conversion, I'm afraid, as well as significantly less complicated ones. Depends on what my hand churns out. 

-If you want to use this as a guinea pig, please give me credit and/or link me! There are a number of reasons for this, but the main one is so that I can contact you if I like what you did with this dragon here. :) 

-This is a regular (wild-type) Lizard Mountain dragon, not a Ghost. (Yes, all LM dragons are striped. It's kind of important in that universe.) It was one of many designs I was trying out for a certain mage clan's emblem, but decided against it. Regardless, I did like the pose, and built upon it for that reason. 

-The lines should be all black. Think the blue pen died, so I finished it up in black. Or maybe I just used whatever the flip I had on me at the time. Another reason to get this thing into digital ASAP. 

-If you want to go outside the space limits I was working in, feel free. 

Have fun! :D

ART REQUESTS: Lizard Mountain stuff I can't do.

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 24, 2014, 11:48 AM…;

Plus I needed to pimp the Google Group for Pet Project II/Lizard Mountain somehow. 

In a nutshell, though: 

~Maps. I need maps. Soooo many maps....actually, it's only needed for a major continent and random weird islands, right now. I want to be able to at least track the first book on the map, as well as the second. 

~I need weapon designers, too. In particular, I have trouble shading blades. 

~Anything else there, including PhotoShop skills. not have them. 

Need to scan stuff, write stuff, and do more Eevee TF's. WRITE ALL THE THINGS. 

Also...for the record? No more news about Megas. I've found that even good news about them turns me into an asshole almost instantly. Sure, turning "HAHA U SUCK" from a crappy Wonder Trade Weedle into a Mega Beedrill and going "who sucks NOW?" is kind of a badass move, but it's also still perpetuating the hatred that poor Weedle carries.

Really? It seems like such a harsh and inelegant language for you. XD

It basically means that the Hunter becomes the Hunted. Oh, and endless parodies.…
