Nailmus Ref v4.0 by Shinerai Nailmus Ref v4.0 by Shinerai
Way too late, if I\'m caught up I\'ll get in trouble so I\'ll type something better later, or maybe I\'ll forget and I wont, who knows.

Anyway new ref for Nailly. Was hoping his whites would be whiter but the gray looks pretty good.

BAM orange.

Nailmus is mine, Avians belong to ~kilara



huge under the DL! please download.

Amazing artwork! I love the detail from the scales to the feathers. I also like how the character build reflect it occupation as a guard. A large head and neck to his broad chest. The beautiful marking on the body look like tribal warrior marking great for a warrior.  I wish I could go on and on, But I can't put in word How much I like your Ref sheet. Great Job!

Thank you so much for the compliments!
I've actually been meaning to redo his reference sheet for a while now. This is the most recent update to his design.
Since you recently came across this image, do you mind telling me what you think about the updates?

Wow thank
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.

Wow thanks for the feedback!
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?

I think it the glowing markers are much bright on the 2009 version compare to the newer Version.  I do agree with the changes when I look at them side by side. The large spike would had made it hard to fly ( because it would most likely weight him down) unless they were hollow which would not make any sense because that would make them useless.  Are you planing on making a chart of his attack. I did one for one of my character ( My icon character) to and I am working on her walk cycle ( hit hard to find a gorilla walk cycle that isnt charging straight at you :p) I would love to see Nailmus forms of attacks. Like how his breath attack would look like or his movement when he in close range combat.
