Speed paint commission for =Enaxn of her characters Obiq and Proca! :D
I think I got a little carried way with this, and it would have totally been submitted hours and hours ago if it weren't for being dragged away from my work station against my will. But I'm glad I can say I finished it before midnight, so that's something!

Hrk, I need so much practice with cats -- and this really helped, even as a speed paint. I think I'm headed on the right track! Also. Clouds. Can you see them?
Totally secret-streamed the entire coloring phase with *Foxchibi! Thanks for watchin' and hanging out with me, beb! :D

Tools: Photoshop CS, Wacom Intuos 3
Time: Unrecorded, but started and finished today
Music: The Rooster Teeth Podcast

Obiq/Proca :iconenaxn:

I love how you somehow made gigantic wings look natural on a cat XD I envy your incredible anatomy skills. Just out of curiosity, did you ever take some sort of anatomy class that contributed to your knowledge or did everything come from personal study?

Well aside from the mandatory biology courses back in high school and college I did take a few zoology courses on the side, but none of them delved into anatomy a great deal (mostly ecological concepts). Most of my anatomical knowledge I have gained from personal studies and research. :)

I really enjoy the foreshortening and distance-blur thing you used in this picture. It's a neat effect. :D

This was literally breath-taking. I couldn't help but sigh after a good long moment of breathlessness.

I think it was the manner in which you used the color blue which struck me so.
