's commission of their character, Sabian, wandering through a snowy forest, following a blood trail, searching for a friend...
This character was interesting, let me tell you! Part leopard and part cheetah, I made his head as leopard-like as I could and left the body cheetah like, hence the limbs and chest. His head gave me fits, hah, I had about two hours where I couldn't draw anything. xD The antlers were fun to do, especially since I've been sketching out deer quite a bit lately. As for his spots, I tried my best to get their shapes and shades correct, I hope I got them close enough
This shading method, the "fur", isn't something I've tried in quite a while, and it's only the second time I've used it in a commission. Whew, it takes a long time, but I love how it turns out! I didn't color the markings on the body and shade them, I actually shaded the flat black body and then put the markings on top of the shading by using brushes with minimal opacity. It seemed like the easiest way ^^
....I love drawing snow. I really do. Is it obvious? And logs. And icicles. c:
