This looks so much more aerodynamic than standard dragons, even when there is a lot of membrane. Feathers and sails by the tail make for a much more maneuverable flying creature!! Beautiful and elegant!
Oh man, the angle of the bottom pose is so dynamic and interesting. It's not often that creatures are viewed from underneath, let alone in an action pose. The shape of her wings in your style make her character somehow fierce. Someday, somehow, I will commission you to sketch an Alkyre ;; And until that day, I'm just going to sit here and admire from afar.
A simple favourite cannot justify my love for this, I totally have to comment. I still cannot believe I caught your character sketch slot, cannot. believe it. When I saw the post I pretty much went into RED ALERT FIRE ALL EMAIL/MESSAGE CANNONS because I -never- stay up that late and lo and behold. A SLOT. -nabs- Everything about this page is spot on, and you uniquely captured what I could not, especially in the gliding pose at the bottom. I apologize that her design sheet was so dark, looking at this I know what I can do to rectify the color scheme now!
Just. man. I want to say I have a favourite pose, but each one is so uniquely beautiful and interesting I keep darting back and forth. Thank you so much for taking her on! I feel SO sorry for that little butterfly! XD
