Seven Moons to Build a Castle by Qirai Seven Moons to Build a Castle by Qirai
Spent most of today working on this...or more like pining, glaring it and trying to get the smallest of details right...

I'm really no good with finishing works- the closer I get to the 'end' the more mistakes I find :XD: endless circle

God I hope you like it, because I love it to bits, even though it is no way near to what I was originally planning...and it has more flaws than I can count, oh I don't care, I still like it and...yeah, enjoy! :D:D

Beautiful~ Your color choices reminds me a lot of this piece by `Saimain, but softer (probably due to the difference in media). Gorgeous, gorgeous work. My only suggestion might be that the feathers of its wings look too stiff, almost like they were drawn like scales instead. Feathers rarely stay in straight lines, so there should be bends, gaps, and size differences between them. But despite that, you did an awesome job with this. Wings are hard to get right--I have issues with realistic ones too. :dummy:

I'm really glad you like it!
About the feathers, you're most deffinitely right. On this image, I tried to stylize it more so my aim wasnt plain realism. Your notes are most deffinitely useful and I will remember it for the future, thank you again! :heart:

Mostly Derwent Inktense pencils, but I tend to mix them with other ones I have, watercolour and the 'ordinary' ones :D
