Her Own Devices by Skysealer Her Own Devices by Skysealer
I'm waking up.
I feel it in my bones.
Enough to make my systems blow.
Welcome to the new age.

This wasn't meant to turn out like it did and it wasn't meant to have been made at all. It just happened.
Sardiryx in the midst of transitioning into her natural element, lightning.

Listened to this while making this image: Imagine Dragons vs Bastille - Pompeii (www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyiXCX… )
Time: A couple of hours max.
Wacom Intuos3 | Photoshop CS

I love how frightening this dragon is, and the combination of the feathers and the lighting is excellent.

A nice charcter design and execution, the lighting effects came out rather well I must say. Also, the rippling cloud effect was a good idea, it adds more speed to it if you ask me.

That... would be utterly terrifying to see coming at you. I feel sorry for whatever monster might end up on the receiving end of Sardi's little display here.
As an aside, I'm tickled pink that we finally get to see her using her element.

She only has two functional wings. The mock feathering along the arms and legs are proto-wings that operate on a specialized digit by the wrist.

This is absolutely amazing, the shading technique plus the way you drew the fusion of lightning and feathers gave this picture so much life, I also love the sense of movement I get from her pose. Awesome job as always ^^!
