38. Nyx by Shinerai 38. Nyx by Shinerai
Another commission! I only have 15 left now c: This is ~Psychopomp16's tiger character, named Nyx. I was commissioned to dragonify her! I hope I did a decent job. I decided to go with a knucker dragon because they're elegant and have cute little wings, but I still tried to show the weight and bodymass that a tiger still has. I tried my best to make little stripes on her but my scanner really made them look blotchy.

I also wanted to try and carry some of her personality through this. While Nyx is very friendly and cares a lot about the happiness of others, sometimes going out of her way and sacrificing her own happiness, she fights a battle within herself and is actually quite lonely and introverted. When ball pythons are scared, they curl up around themselves, and I thought that she might do something similar when seeking comfort but no one is there.

I really like the thought you put into this. c:

I also like the stripes and I don't think the blotchy-ness hurts the picture at all. It works well with the mood. Did you use marker, watercolor, or something else for the stripes?

Thanks, shovka c:> I'm glad the stripes look okay. I just used a W3 copic for them and kinda outlined them in pencil after I drew them on :D
