Original sketch: fav.me/d4m83i2


:iconcryforeverplz: Gimp, no programm can ever replace you. Not Sai, not even Photoshop.

I kind of grew out of inspiration for the background, but I'm still pleased as heck with it 8D This picture was such a pleasure to make, and Gimp didn't even crash once, W00T. I still played on the safe side and saved the pic in 4 different files LOL.

Auros is slowly going up in my rank of favourite characters of mine :lol: Can't wait to fully show her personality and draw more pics of her! It will be awesome xD Still thinking about her design too, mostly the blue part of the wings :p (the 'arm' part, not the membrana) I'm still not sure of how much blue they should have nor what kind of blue exactly...So expect to see different versions in the future pics involving her.

And mwahaha, I missed drawing such detailed clouds >w< I never managed to draw them with SAI the same way I did with Gimp or PS.

The background is...made with my best tool, randomness :lol: Random cliff with floating rocks and stuff. Awyeah ~ I might try to add some water on the rocks so that it makes a few waterfalls..8D I tried while drawing the pic and gave up cause it was failed, but I still wanna try again. :stare:

Anyways, long description over, enjoy! >w<

Made with: GIMP 2.1.6 :heart:

I must ask you; what was Auros's element before she lost it? her color's got me thinking fire, but the stripes suggest Ice or even poison...

This might sound totally random- BUT I LOVE THE WAY YOU DO DRAGON PAWS. :icondatassplz:

Those scales o_o I can't figure out how can you be so motivated to draw them all... D: ~
Gweatjob at rocks too ;33 ~ Awesome BG. Whole BG. Yay for flying rocks! :dummy: Maybe Auros isn't sure to fly or not to fly because he's afraid one of them might hit him :noes:.

Love your artwork. Auros is a beautiful dragoness, a wonderful and well made design. I'm curious to see her future designs ^-^ And I'm particularly excited to see what form she'll finally take when you like how she turns out.

all in gimp? did you use any fancy brushes for those smexy clouds? or just some well placed hand strokes and facedesks cause your clouds always have such a fluffy feel to them with soft blending colors! GAH!

oh my. her spikes look really elegant if thats possible!? but they do.

the bottom of her wings. it looks like the night sky. is that how they should look cause I like it XD

I do remember seeing her before in your gallery but my memory sucks as its is and darn if I go to your gallery I end up there all day and then I stop doing what I SHOULD be doing so I can't double check and go find the few pictures I think I saw of her XD

those cliffs are so smooth too O_O my my, when I ever stream again I need to watch you to get an idea of how this all comes together. (or I can jump around youtube and find you there too >.>)
