cm: black and gold by Veradaine cm: black and gold by Veradaine

commission for *Quammar.

this took me a while, mostly because of the perfectionist in me.
but at some point you have to stop fretting over details and submit the damn thing.
I think this one's decent enough. I always have a hard time with unnatural colors, but I hope I got the gold hair right.
VERY proud of the horns/armor, which I painted from scratch. (:
also he has a cropped tail, just so you know.

Very beautiful, I like the unnatural colors on this- great job and yes fretting over details and overworking is just as bad as under-doing a piece of art. but I like the way this turned out , I'll guess that the person who commissioned you would be happy with it. : )

This whole piece is gorgeous, but I especially love the feathers. It's like I could reach out and stroke them :love: And I would have never been able to tell that you painted that armor from scratch. Well done!
