Commission - The Silver Bells by Shinerai Commission - The Silver Bells by Shinerai
[EDIT] Altered color scheme by request of commissioner :) He looks like the spring season nature god he's supposed to be!

I've been working on this design commission for TheSilverBells for what feels like forever now! Though admittedly, I did take a break from it last weekend and did other things.

So this is the very first drawing of this character ever and I'm really excited that it was made by me, yay! There was a rather detailed description for this guy so I hope I did your concepts some justice, beb. To Silverbells, I still have the PSD file and I know that the colors of this character are really important; please let me know if you're looking for something different as far as color scheme goes and what you would like. The way I have it set up makes it super easy to alter the colors ;)

I really like this color scheme though. Please download for the fullsized version. I wonder if I should post detail shots or something? :P This guy was really big, originally 5000x4000px.

Man I love how you make this appear like an actual Chinese painting of some sort if you know what I mean.
Every detail from the mane to the awesome jewelry designs-- And those colors!! Words can't even describe how beautiful this is!
So clean. So pretty. SO AMAZING.

Hey your welcome!
I just really love your style, the way you draw your dragons, and other creatures,
So powerful and majestic, like they have their own story (dont get me started on the anatomy XD )
 including this one, are very inspiring. That's the level of detail, I wish
 to achieve in the future.
Oh man thsi is really cool
But I liked it so much more when you first uploaded it.
there are too many bright contrast colors now:/

But I know it's not your decission^^;
Sometimes It's really hard to please the commissioner and yourself at the same time.

it happens :)
I remember being in the stream when you were drawing this. It turned out good. The colours are incredibly bright, but they look good. THose scales are mesmerizing.
