Scribbles of a Stripeybutt
Continuing the theme of “Old Characters Who Need Better Ref Pictures”, a WIP of my lupogryph x hippogryph cross, Lyris.   Still a lot of work to do on it, but this is the closest I’ve ever come to pinning down a decent visual of him.   I tossed in the first sketch of him (From 2004, maybe?) for laughs… I think Old Lyris is ashamed of himself.  Or maybe his eye is just slowly sliding off of his face…. (Random fact:  I thought I’d take a break from dragons for a bit, then realized that in TV Tropes terms, this guy is “The Dragon” to a Big Bad in the old RP he was involved in.  Detail-oriented administrator who serves as second in command of the monster army. Kind of a scary dude.)

Hey look I finally finished that thing from a while back.   This took way longer than it should have.  I am probably the only person in the universe who is slower at lineart than I am at fully detailed paintings.

Look who’s getting a ref update!  Top image is still very much a WIP, bottom is original design from 2009 (I think) .

Decided to try joining a round of secret-santa conbadge exchanges this month.  Gimmick belongs to Mave on FA.   Yay monsters!

Who is in an art rut and only drawing square pictures of dragon faces?  That would be me.  Ayup.  Luminaura belongs to Claire Spiller ( http://clairespiller.tumblr.com/ )

Forgot to put this one here. Gift for Nightspiritwings; a little looser than most of my recent portraits, but I’m pleased with the outcome!

Heikue has been loooong overdue for a ref update.  Still need to clean up her back wings and a few other spots, but I think new-Heikue is on the right track.  Old picture is from 2008 and had a lot of design elements that never worked for me! 

Do I draw anything besides headshots of other people’s characters?  Apparently not!  Sakuratine belongs to Nicole, AKA Zennom, Ms. Muffin B, or Nicool (who will never escape the nickname she came up with when she was 12 because THE INTERNET IS FOREVER.)
