Shinerai Reference v5.0NK by Shinerai Shinerai Reference v5.0NK by Shinerai
I've been working on this between other things for several several months now and finally finished it today.

:c Yeah I know what you're thinking "oh, he's changing Shinerai again!" You're right, I do change him pretty often. As beautiful as the last version of him was, it was too. . . pretty. I was too caught up in trying to make him different that I forgot who he was. He wasn't shinerai anymore, he was way too Regal to be a thief and way too suave looking to be a silly prankster like he's supposed to be. Since I changed his humanoid form also, I traced (lol) it onto this ref too. . .

Anyway, for those who have been watching me for a very long time, you will notice I've found a median between old and new shin c: I've taken old!shin's bodytype and general markings but gave him new!shin's fluffy chest, limbs, and feathery tail. Of course his ears are still as long as ever.

I merged the body gradient, making him dark toward the back and light toward the front like new!shin, but darker on the shoulders and lighter on the belly like old!shin. I took old!shin's colors but made them more vibrant with gradiating markings like new!shin.

Anyway, enough of my ranting. I also finally found a wing design I like colorwise c:

I hope this will be the very last reference of Shinerai. I'm so perfectly content with him finally.

Shin and art © :iconshinerai: that's me!

2600px under DL. Sorry FV wouldn't let me make it bigger than 1600.

Ah, I make typoes on everything I touch, so dont bother telling me about them because I dont care enough to fix them~ thxx. also put # in your comment if you actually read the sheet. >XD i'm curious.

Oh gosh, I would be honored if you did that <3

Honestly, I haven't really been able to put much info here on dA but since I'm done with my to-do list, I hope I can begin to amend that soon. I'll mostly be posting headworld stuff on my Tumblr C:
