Nailly by Shinerai Nailly by Shinerai
I really enjoyed doing the last headshot I submitted, so I really wanted to do another one in the same style. Nailmus doesn't get enough attention and his face is incredibly hard to draw from any angle other than the side, so I figured he'd be a good subject for practice.

I swear I'll work on commissions next

The face looks almost lion-esque, which makes it really unique.

Amazing drawing of an amazing character! Avians are just an awesome species. I love how their heads look.
You also did a great job with the 'backlight' thing, or whatever it's called. Anyway, the lightning looks very natural and beautiful! *runs off to practice*

I am literally mindblown, once again your art leaves me breathless. I have always been a massive dragon lover, I always had to doodle the scaly beasts on every paper even now as a senior in high school haha. There are two people I look up to when I draw these animals: You and Neondragon, for years you guys have inspired me to keep drawing I truly hope to be as good as you someday :)

It's an idea Senaru ran past me a few months ago, but I was never able to figure out Zbrush. >< I'll ask Fox about it though since he went to school for that. c: Thanks Shin!

Sorry, that's a difficult question to answer. I'm afraid that if you are too Lazy for a manual, then maybe art in Photoshop is not for you. It takes years and years of practice.
