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.

Wait that is the 4th version! :iconwhatthefrogplz:
I was wondering because I haven't found any of Nailmus refs in your gallery (excluding this one) :c
Shinerai Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Well that's cause I hid the other ones! :)

Technically this is the second version. Not sure why I called it v4.0

So I was casually browsing second life pictures when low and behold I come across something that made my heart explode. It seems someone has created a second life avatar of this cutie. :I....>:I....

I had to close my computer and screech.

I literally cannot begin to explain how much I died at that moment, I NEED to know who made his avatar. ;A;
I don't even want to say how badly I need one in my life. Not him specifically but..

1. A dragon from you specifically.
and 2. To throw money at whoever made the avatar so that I may run around in one of your stunning designs.


I cannot even right now. It's bad enough that I look up to you like crazy, and that you're my freaking Idol.

But just the fact that a Nailmus avatar exists killed me. uwu

I am so sorry for this looooong comment, but literally I am having a emotional breakdown over this. >w>;

Here is the link to the pics I found:…   

And I also apologize for sounding like a complete Ass-Patter, but I was completely serious about you being my Idol, and that you basically spurred my love for dragons, wyvern ect. So I just want to say thank you. I honestly don't know where I would be today when it comes to art if I hadn't stumbled across you years ago. <3

Awe well thank you so much for the wonderful comment!
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 ;)
oukume Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
She hates you now!? WAT. xD
That's terribly sad...

But yes it was quite stunning, same with the character. Which I'm sure you get that on a daily basis haha. ^w^;

I suppose it is. She submitted a membership request to my exchange which is advertised everywhere on the front page, the about section, and the how to join as a quality controlled exchange; she flipped when I denied her request and offered a friendly critique. That's neither here nor there though.

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;

I have a few quick questions. I wanted to double check and make sure that Nailmus is Cain's father. Who is Cain's mother and is Ripha his sister? Also if Centra is Cain's mother is she Ripha's as well?
