DescriptionMy long overdue ShinXChange entry for AshasCadence of her Nagendra character named Hydra! The image was supposed to be autumn themed but I didn't pull it off very well. Wasn't for the lack of trying though!
This took me forever and ten days to paint but I am really proud of it. I thoroughly enjoyed Hydra's challenging anatomy (those arms. . . ) and I REALLY enjoyed painting the markings. It was exciting to get to take my gradient map coloring method to the next level. I have to say that this is possibly the most complicated character I've ever drawn (for now).
Either way, I haven't eaten today so that's probably all I have to say!
Enjoy, everyone. Please download to see the full sized image.

This is very, very amazing. I can't even believe what I'm seeing... Keep up the great work...!
It's just stunning in so many ways, I like the softness of the grass and the lighting and oh gods it's all amazing. xD
Not too hard to do!
And though one would have expected some leafs for the autumn theme; If what I see is the very fist snowfall, I'd still say you nailed it brilliantly. c:
I hope you had a Merry Christmas too! And a happy new year c:
The thing that made it challenging for me is that . . . The grass being orange would mean it was dead, so if I needed something orange in the BG, I coulda done like fallen leaves or something but. I just wasn't ready for that challenge yet ;o;
I'm pretty sure you've drawn more complex charas though, hehe.
Can't wait to see more!
Keep it up.
And I really dig how the tailfin looks like a leaf.
Also, that handpose!
What I still don't get are the muscles on the arms tho. The Bizeps on the big arms reaally carves in. But what confuses me most is the muscles on the smaller arms. They look as if they'd be curled around the bone one extra time. As if someone had rotated his hands. Why did you do it like this?
I love the shadows on his chest. And for some reason I can't stop staring at the blades of grass in the lower left hand corner, haha.
I have no idears why I drew the muscles like that. I mostly just made it up . . .
I already watched all of your stream ones and I seek for more xD Plsss
Oh! I will post the finished artwork on my tumblr then I'm really excited to see that multiple people were following it there.
I will start telling livestream to save the videos when I public stream. I was going to save this one but habit got to me and I accidentally clicked delete )':
