SHAMELESS use of the "fire brush" in painter. It looks good small though I promise! :D

Baldwin is my favorite dragon to draw because he's so FLUFFY and shoulder-sized and beady-eyed :D

My favorite part is the reflected bits inside the icicles themselves. Really awesome right there.

Thanks! I've never drawn ice like that before, it was really fun!

These are so nice! They make me really happy. ^^ You have such a way with these tiny, fully-realized backgrounds!

Thanks! Malaika gave me a hint of what she wanted but otherwise quite a bit of freedom, whereas Westly just let me have total free reign of what to come up with for a firebreathing dragon. When doing the autumn ones I found I started running out of ideas XD Fortunately with winter ones there's a lot of possibilities (holiday, non holiday etc)

Oh! Very nice!!! Nice icicles, nice hair on both. Kind of odd to not have the flames in the same style, but it works.

Same style? Not sure I follow. I used the firebrush because the icons are intended to be in small form, so yeah it's a cheat and looks a little weird in big form. In small form it reads like it should, but its kind of like when you look at a painting really close up it looks really weird but if you stand back the eye pieces it together as a whole image. If this was a bigger pic I'd have done it differently :)

You followed exactly!

I really like both of them.

I like these very much! I'm very tempted to send you an email, if you're still open for these winter icon commissions :)
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: December 10th, 2009 04:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am indeed!

I thought I'd just comment here instead of emailing you back :) But thank you so much!!! This came out fabulous! I love the coloring and you do such a nice blend of canine and feline on Mala! And thanks for trying to incorporate my marking :)

Yay I love it!

I'm so happy you like it! I really like how you've changed her design btw, and its a lot easier now for me to combine the features somehow (It could just be from experience, I know I drew her more wolfy before) so this was a fun challenge!

Thank you :) I was hesitant to do it at first, but I'm glad I did. I think the little cheetah elements that were added really suit her :)

I'm glad you enjoyed drawing it for me :) Thanks again!
