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.

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.

You are definitely welcome! You spend so much time on the intricate pieces and the least I can do is chime in from time to time. It's all amazing, so I don't always have a lot to contribute, but when I think I've got something to say I owe at least that.

Oh my such pretty colors, and and all the designed awesomeness of an oriental god like creature, my guess earth spirit. I like the fact that it looks like it more or less has this like iridescent fish scale shape, and it is not quite empire status, but does have four toes so it is higher than a commoner. Every thing blends so nice and smooth in transition, like as if you used a gradient map system; whereas flowers in the main and gold jewelry are just accenting accessories that ad a flare to the image. Well done on this dragon, head to tail. :)

Oh my goodness this is beautiful Sheen!
I actually really like the spring colors! I also love the flowers in his hair, haha it's so fab. I also really like the way you did the flat almost perspective-less scales. It reminds me a lit of those old Japanese woodblock prints, which works great with the character!
Beautiful~

Oh I was confused that the colouring changed from the last time I checked! :D this colour scheme looks really lovely too ^^ I'm also sad that I didn't see you drawing the scales, baww 8'D But they look wonderful too! and nice colours on them too! 8)
I love the way you drew the fur/mane, it looks reall good and has beautiful colours on it!
The dragon's face is just so beautiful! You got so great style and there's so much details everywhere! *u* I just love how much effort you put in the lineart, I can't stop saying it <3
Epic looking dragon, I'm sure the commissioner loves this ^_^

This is a wonderful job, I have commented on this before if I'm not mistaken? But I must thank you for this piece which has served me well as a dragon fur reference, also it's very inspirational! Simple yet something I'd like to do as great.

Whoo!! This is stunning beb! I popped by the stream for a little bit and saw the lineart of this, but the colors just POP. Love your use of gradient on those scales and that mane and the head is freaking INSANE! I've always loved the colors you pick and this does not disappoint. Fabulous job beb. <'3333
