48. Kittashe by Shinerai 48. Kittashe by Shinerai
Another of those sketch commissions! This one is for *tWistedscissors of their character named Kittashe. I have to say, this is one very unique character and she was a whole lot of fun to draw. Time for work!

One thing I just can't wrap my mind around is the back fins continuing down the tail, or at least I think one of them continues but the back one stops or converges...? The face is really cool, I like the sloping/pointed snout. I also like the spiky butt XD. And of course your usual mastery of feet and scales and teeth and poses and overall everything is just ahhhhhhhhh love <3.

I think I may have left out a very important line to convey the back fin (the further one) turning around the tail xD I hope that doesn't completely ruin it.

Thanks for your feedback, hon c:

Aahhhhhhhhhhh I see it now :slow:! You totally did it right, and my brain just wasn't processing it. I blame work. I love my job, but full-time is mentally draining. (Although Memorial Day yesterday went a long way towards recharging :D.) I didn't even notice the little nub there depicting that hidden fin where the small spines are.

I think what confused me at first was the far fin seems to have one less "large" spine than the near one (I'm assuming it's foreshortened out of view and my brain can't make sense of it yet), and that combined with the line of scales on the tail there twisting in a way that sort of makes it look like they're dorsal when they're really not.

Man I hope my replies make sense. I'd write more but this message alone took a while just to compose, and it's late already :dead:.

I'm full time too XD It's very sad. I usually work 6 days a week but I actually got two days off this week (monday and tuesday) that I can't wait to spend on artwork :P

Your replies make perfect sense xD I need to work more on making my drawings make more sense is all. I very much appreciate your feedback, hon, because without it, it'd be harder to improve :D

I've got an office job so I'm 8:30-5 every weekday with weekends off, but it's a 40 minute drive one way so that adds up to like 10 hours away from home. Between daily life things, some nights I don't even open my laptop. I'm still making some art progress, at least. Slowly getting through my trades, and then I'll get to draw Shinerai :D.

Haha sometimes I feel like my sentences come out as run-ons.
Don't be silly, you've already done quite an amazing job! It's hard to depict a form with just lineart (I know, we had to draw a bicycle in drawing class using just contours v_v), and I'm sure my tired brain would have grasped it better had the commissioner requested shading.

wow that sounds like the kind of job I've always wanted <3 It's the same drive for me to go to college, so that has never really bothered me :D Well, until I had to afford gas, but you probably get paid more than me so I bet it's okay xD

I love my job and I feel so fortunate to have it! I think it's a good starting salary for a recent(ish) grad like me :D. I get about 2k a month after taxes, but my credit card bill these past few times takes at least half of that, dang car insurance junk and whatnot :I. The rest goes straight into rebuilding my savings, since I still gotta pay my parents back for my car.

Office jobs are alright. Personally, I'd love to be in an office like 2 days a week and work from home the rest of the time :D.
