DescriptionNew ref for Nailly. I was hoping his whites would be whiter but the gray looks pretty good.
Art, Nailmus © Shinerai my face!
I notice that you changed his body shape alot. He much more stubby looking compare to the 2009 version. I donot know if you ever heard about a pet site called Flight rising, and Nailmus 2009 design remind me of a dragon class on the site called Guardians. I do like the idea of shorten his tail. His tail will be about to do more damage when swiping at foe's ribs and back hind legs. Also I do not know if you remove the feathers as a way to show more detail to his back just for the concept or that you are plan to remove them permanently? If you are removing the wing, Nailmus now look more like he is suite for fighting on the ground instead of the sky. But overall the new design seem to lend more to the warrior then the 2009. But personally I like the design of the 2009 a little more because I feel he looks are he part of some ancient royal guards that have all fade and Nailmus is the last of his squard....but that just my opioion.
The updates I made were mostly to fix the proportion issues from the 2009 version. His tail was too long/thin and the spikes were too big, his pinions were too long etc. His back legs are a bit too long in the update, but no I will not be removing his wings I left them off so that I didn't cover up the feathers that come off his head. Nailmus is actually a royal guard and while he isn't very FAST, he does have a lot of physical strength and tenacity; he's a bit of a tank with MAGIC!
What specifically about the 2009 design makes you think he is part of an ancient royal guards (which he is), that the new design doesn't?
Well that's cause I hid the other ones!
Technically this is the second version. Not sure why I called it v4.0
There is indeed a Nailmus avatar in second life and it is likely the one made by Night-eco.
She made it a very long time ago and it is indeed a very lovely and amazingly pose-able rendition of Nailly. You will likely not find it in her gallery because she hates me now
I hope you can take a screenshot of it if you see it again c:
I actually drew an updated version of nailmus recently with lots of design fixes. I hope to make a new reference sheet for him sooner rather than later!
Even if I may or may not have heard a compliment before, I still appreciate you leaving it ;u;
Nailmus is Cain's father figure but Cain is an orphan! Nailmus found him and took him in, so we do not know who his parents are.
I don't even know what I would do if I had to draw from this ref sheet
I'm sure your dragon heavy fighter will come out awesome, but you need to either get peoples permission to use their ideas first (as in before you start doing it, and without assuming they'll say yes), or commission them to create ideas you can use.
What I'm assuming is a wing comes off looking like a back ridge but otherwise it looks great. Should put it up on DA for more opinions.
