Commission For: Zach
Tablet: Huion KAMVAS 16

Berry Swirl is a furry raptor lass with very fond memories of time she spent with her loved ones at the beech. While she's cool with hanging out at the tiki bar for a while, there's so much more to do and see!
I had a fun time working with this character, especially with how much creative liberty I was given. I worked with provided photos to set the scene, and used her character references, to make her a raptor with some mammalian traits. I checked in with Zach once in a while to confirm my thinking was in line with his, but he requested to not see w.i.p's along the way, to make for a big reveal in the end. He was thrilled, and I could not be happier with that!
The last bit of this one was a struggle as my tablet was malfunctioning, but I pushed through the frustration to get it done before this weekend when I intend to ship the tablet off for maintenance.
