Aerial Sierra Den by ElrondDrakendil

Aerial Sierra Den

A custom single character watercolor for Merlin of her kangaroo incubus, Sierra Den! I was given free reign with the pose and setting (minimal background) and so I chose to go for one of my favorite circus apparatus: the aerial silks! I really wanted a pose that could show off his lovely… er… wings. Yes, wings.

They are quite impressive, no?

Watercolor on 9"x12" cold press paper.

    Is this going on FA as well? If so, she's "merlin-the-bruce" there, but I still haven't persuaded her to get a weasyl account as well yet.

      I will be posting it on FA eventually, and when I do I'll be sure to tag her! Thanks!

    This is gorgeous. I really love the color pallet, it's hard to make that much red and that much blue in so close to primary tones look good but this looks fantastic! I just started doing aerial yoga/ribbon dancing and ho-boy, is that a super challenging pose! Good for Sierra Den! I can only imagine the nightmares of having to add two more limbs to the poses.

      Thanks! I cribbed this pose off of a circus acrobat—it sure looked challenging to me, but it actually provided the best base for translation to a digitigrade, winged person! XD Anyway, thanks again, and sorry for the late reply!
