Done as an adoption piece for inemiset for the dA exchange group CoC-Exchange since she never got her half, I volunteered to do it. Unfortunately I did not count on Inktober or this past month playing hell with my schedule, so it took longer than normal. Now that my major project obligations are done though, I'll have even more time to devote to commissions.
I've been getting into a real dragon bender the past couple months and it doesn't seem to be letting up (I think it's actually getting worse) and this guy was a real joy to sketch out and render. Colored pencils continue to take me excruciatingly long to use, but this time around I am very pleased with how it came out. Another good "benchmark" piece I think. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it! Zest is a beautiful character.
Done with Derwent Coloursoft and an off brand of colored pencil on blue Canson Mi-Tientes paper. Character belongs to inemiset
