Recently, I received a commission from Heromule (https://twitter.com/heromule) on Twitter of my fursona, Empress, and I immediately fell in love with how they drew her. You can see it here: https://toyhou.se/3579161.empress-rising#33961059
I immediately fell in love with the facial features she was given. I liked the larger chin and jaw, making her look more masculine, as well as the larger ears. I'd been debating giving her larger horns for ages as people often drew her with large horns, and the reference I did for her at the start of the year had an incorrect horn reference as is from a lesser kudu. So, after falling in love with this commission, as well as feedback from friends and followers, AND my own personal preferences, I decided to make the jump on a redesign for her, and by GOD do I not regret it. I am beyond ecstatic and in love with this redesign.
You can see her changes throughout my time owning her in this image here:
This is her main reference now. Simple, effective, and definitely showing off her new style. While I am learning every art piece I do, I am very, VERY happy with this one.
I will update this at some point with more information about her. She lives in a world I created called Gigas Nisus (gee-guhs nee-suhs) that is very, very similar to modern Earth in around the 2010 times. It's filled with horned/antlered and hooves animals, such as all bovine and deer. (Cow, deer, antelopes, buffalo, etc). There's a large plot and series of comics I hope to write, but for now, this is about as good as a description as I can give.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my fursona!
Here is the high res:
And big notes to these artists for helping with redlines and advice:
Do you like my work? If you have the means to, and are interested, please consider supporting me on Patreon! Starting for only a $1, you can get access to WIPs of all my art work, early access to commissions, adoptables and YCHs, brushes and textures I use, tutorials, and even some art with some of the pledges! When you support me on Patreon, it helps me by letting me work less hours/overtime at my full time job, therefore giving me more time to work on art, while at the same time getting your own benefits!
You could also buy me a Ko-fi to help me out, as well as commission me, but don't ever feel obligated to!
If you see this, it means I likely posted this art using PostyBirb, an app that lets you post art and updates to multiple sites at once. It's a great app that's helped me increase my reach. If you need anything from me, I am most active on DeviantArt and Twitter, and under that, FurAffinity, so those are the best places to contact me. Otherwise, I may take a while to respond to a note or message!
