Hydra by Shinerai Hydra by Shinerai
My 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 ;u; 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 XD

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.

Wow this is gorgeous, did you color shade it or go black and white? 
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
