Aveil_ReferenceSheet by ShadowOfSolace Aveil_ReferenceSheet by ShadowOfSolace
:iconiloveyouplz: It has been a dream of mine to construct a reference sheet for a dragon since I first joined DA so many years ago.... *sniffle* I'm still chasing lost idols.
____________________________________________________

^w^ Another fully conceptualized character from my Animation class, say hello to Aveil-the star character for my childish Animatic.
I've added alot to her design since then (namely colors lol) and am excited to finally see this completed.

I have always been a major-dragon-fan-nerd-massive-obsessed-freak-stalker and can say with confidence I know most if not all the major dragon artists here in the DA community. Because of this vast database I was careful to keep her design distinct so that I wouldn't feel scrutinized by my idols and peers.

Bright obnoxious blue 'neon blue' has always been my favorite color, but purple has moved up a significant deal since my beloved aunts passing. I used these two tones to construct her basic color scheme, and just had crazy fun from there.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy, please feel free to post queries if any. I think I would absolutely explode with joy if people grew to love her as ardently as I love my fellow dragon artists.

I just came upon this picture.  I must say this is quite the intriguing design for a dragon.  I love the color scheme, especially the underside of the wing.

Holy sweet mother of child defenestrating penguin lords. *eyes burn out from viewing too much glory*.......Your sooo.... 'creature-creation' savvy.... it really blows my mind. I can't explain how deeply in love i am with your ability and art style (andyou//shot) So damn beautiful ALL THE TIME. CAN'T YOU TAKE A BREAK AND HAVE UGLY SKILLZ FOR ONCE!? -shot again- no just kidding, really XDD. I will....seriously...just commission you to design a creature for me one day....Always getting mindblown by you, yet I never get tired of my brains flying down the street. XD Stay beautiful, Sol.

Sarim if u saw my sketching process you would witness firsthand my 'ugly skillz' holy crap its a poop streaked mess!!!

If you ever decide on a concept, I would be honored to attempt to draw it for you. I appreciate your praise, but most times creatures like this take me months to construct.. It makes me all sorts of aggitated that it takes so long cause I'm soo freaking anal.

'Always getting mindblown by you, yet I never tired of my breains flying down the street' is offically my second favorite quote by you.
My first remains as 'If Kel were a tree, I would be his Koala'
Seriously I laughed so hard that one made it into my journal XD XD XD

your character sheets are so enthralling. And this dragon is so awe-inspiring. He demands attention while at the same time has a gentleness expressed in his magnificence if you open your mind to it.

Thank you so very much beb!!!
That is exactly what I was going for~~
And it's technically a 'she' btw.
I wonder, does she look masculine to u? Several people have identified her as such.

in all honesty I wasn't focused too much on identifying gender. I said 'he' because that's what the others were saying. I was mesmerized by the pretty colors.
