Yzara Reference Sheet by Skysealer Yzara Reference Sheet by Skysealer
A flat colored reference sheet commission for =vtforpedro of her character Yzara!

Can you guys tell that I'm really digging these reference commissions? They take a while what with all the feedback that's passed back and forth, but I'm in love with the results. I learn something new every time!
I hope you all enjoy them too! :>

I posted a few WIPs of this to my tumblr:

Haha, you make it sound like the graphics and illustration industry-grade program that is Photoshop is the worst program to be using. c;

No, it's not at all, but I suck major nards with it. So I'm complimenting your knowledge and skill on using the program, and creating something great like this.

Oh...

 Well anyway, this is absolutely stunning! I love how unique each dragon or avian is! And the anatomy is excellent, it seems to me that this creature looks like it could exist. Too bad they don't... D:

just a question but what size of canvas do you usually use and what type and thickness of brush do you use, for a reference sheet like this?

Looking at how the wings are drawn here, I just now realized what I was doing wrong. No matter what I was never happy with how I was drawing wings.

Ay Sky, did you know that if you type "reference sheet" into the dA searchbar the frontpage is LOADED with your sheets? Just shows how gooood they are *¬*
On a side note, would you mind if I'd include a "profile with wings folded" in my refs aswell? I love the idea and that's a thing that my sheets lack <3

:iconskysealer:
Skysealer Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I always include 'reference sheet' in my tag list, so that's probably why. XD
And go for it! I don't own folded wing views. ;)

btw, i just wanna ask, what would you charge for a ref like this? since i'm still low on points until i complete my 3 commissions, and got no paypal?

Please read my Commission Information! [link]
It may answer some of your questions, also just know that I do not take points as payment. :>

yes i read it. but thing is, i'm probably not going to have the 150$ for it.

but what about a reference sheet sketch?

Don´t you think that it is pretty rude of you to almost begg for a free commission? You see all the work behind it, if you don´t want to pay 150, than search for an artist who offers you that quality for a lower price.

i'm not asking for free. I'm not begging eigther. i'm just asking about prices.

and you seem to think that a reference sheet of that quality does not deserve being worth 150 dollars?

She's the first of her type I've seen. I mean, I've heard of Saurians before, but I've never seen one so... cute and dangerous at the same time. Haha.

I love it :D
