Flat color refined sketch commission for ~seabubbles of her awesome character, Antiquedes!
I haven't done this kind of plating in a while, so this was a very entertaining throwback. I've always really loved this character, so he was an absolute pleasure to draw. <3

Livestreamed the refining and flat color stages with my guests of honor, ~ahkahna, *Foxchibi, and =Shadowmanic. Thanks for keeping me company, guys! <3

You can see the rough sketch version here:

Tools: Photoshop CS, Wacom Intuos 3
Time: A few of hours total
Music: Club Afterlife - Mass Effect 2

Been going through your art. Like that your wings are proportional to the size of the animal. Too many artists make them way too small. :D
