Let me be your wings

snow's picture
I wondered how deer-Illrose would look like with her dragon wings. Now I know. xD
Also, I challenged myself and removed her mask, god how difficult it is to draw a human face! Her skeleton make-up was inspired by this. n_n

Large images under cut.
One version with background, and one without. Not sure if I really like that background. ^^'

Edit; Updated because I completely forgot to add the scar she got after fighting a rock hound. x')

This is wonderful! It is

This is wonderful! It is very different and interesting to see Illrose’s face. Nice way to handle the “skull” theme. And those are marvelous wings, I always find dragon wings challenging, you did a good job here.

Thank you! I'm not really

Thank you! I'm not really sure if this is how Illrose's face looks like, but I find it really difficult to draw a human face, to give it emotions and make it unique. But it was an interesting challenge. :b Yeah, I find that make-up really fitting. :')
Thank you so much for your comment! ^^

Ginger;
Something like this, I guess. xD
Thank you. ♥

Haha, she and my (very unactive) Mater Heshemsu could start a skull-makeup-club! Skull pattern on faces are awesome and this picture is too. Very nice wings!

Thank you! ♥

Aw, thank you, I'm glad you think so! :'D

Wow, that is some pretty makeup! Gorgeous. ♥ I want to make Illrose's skull makeup more unique and interesting as well, but first I have to learn to draw human faces properly. :')

I didn’t draw that image, of

I didn’t draw that image, of course, but yeah, I love day of the dead painted skull faces. This one reminded me of Illrose with the long hair. Human faces are HARD to draw. I reference heavily when I draw people. Reference is my best friend! I think you did a great job with the face.

Yeah, I could totally imagine Illrose's face looking like that. :'D I also use a lot of references when I draw. I actually referenced that body from a horse laying down, and changed it into looking more like a moose. xD

Dinah;
Hm, I've never heard of Fever Ray, or that woman. Awesome photos though, especially the last one. : D
And thanks. ♥

Wow, the dynamics in this are

Wow, the dynamics in this are really pleasant to look at <3 it just looks right, the pose, the anatomy, the perspective and everything.
And did you try a new colouring style? At least I like it very much, and the colours work really well together too. Good work shading with both the black and white. and hrr I like her hair <3 and her wings and face of course, but that has been mentioned by others too :'D
This looks so much like Illrose, even without her skull <3

Awesome work on this, I have missed seeing drawings from you. :')

Gah, mini, you spoil me with

Gah, mini, you spoil me with your kind words. ♥
No, I didn't try a new coloring style, but I'm glad you like it. :') And her hair too, although I think it looks too 'flat'. xD Ohwell.
Thank you, I'm really glad you think so, although I'm pretty sure some changes will happen to her face when I just get more used to draw human faces. :')

I've missed to draw too, but I have had an huge art block lately. xD

Simply amazing! I love the

Simply amazing! I love the wings esepecially! The streaks and the tears, I don't know, I'm just amazed by them!
