Wren Reference by Shinerai Wren Reference by Shinerai

Description

So I've been working on this a very long time and it's finally finished! This is a reference sheet commission for SashaWren of her character, Wren. I had a great time working with Wren to design this character and portray her on an interesting refsheet; and it definitely took a lot to get it but I'm very proud with the outcome.

Wren and I worked a lot together to design this character, but any and all information about the character's background and Tribe are all courtesy of Wren. I don't deserve the credit for that.
And thank you FoxPhillix for all of the times I asked you if it looked okay, and for proofreading the text!

I liked the image of the character! Especially the seasons change. Simply magical! A very unusual way.

Holy dayum <3 I've never seen such an enormous reference, and yet it looks so readable! I usually hate big refs, they make me wana NOT read them XD although this just invites me inwards due to its well layed out appearance ^^ The character is beautiful herself, and the wings are the most interesting part with that lovely rounded shape, they remind me somehow of the superb bird of paradise with its very round shape :) The only one crit I would say for the feathers is (and I really am no person to tell you how to draw, but its just an opinion) that to me they look quite weak? I think perhaps its the amount of lines you have added to them, so they look more the consistency of an ostriches feather rather than a stronger flying primary feather, but, then again, they do look pretty with all those details! Either way your the absolute goddess of refs on here so you've don'e a fantastic job :hug:

Hello! Thank you for all of your compliments! I am sorry for the late reply but I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your comment. This probably was the biggest reference sheet I ever made. xD And I also appreciate your critique! I can see how a detailed feather would look more like a soft, fluffy one and not a flight feather. I will definitely fiddle around with different ways of drawing them!
See you around!

I love her Spring and Autumn colors ♥
Are all these characters for a book/project/comic you're working on?

Hello!
I'm sorry I took so long to respond to your comment ;u; Work has been very busy for me but I wanted to make sure I responded to you, even if it's late. I'm really glad that you like her design <3
This character specifically belongs to my friend but this species is one that i am working on in my 'headworld'. Though it's entirely personal and will not appear in a book, one of my other friends has convinced me to make a comic. I really want to try that (like maybe a 1-chapter story) but really my project is to build an encyclopedia for this world eventually. ;u;

Just curious; where did you get the typeface for the headers? It's really pretty and I've never seen anything quite like it before.
(By the way, this is beautifully done)

Thank you for your compliments! I got the typeface from a friend of mine that took a typography class. It's called Ambrosia. Would you like me to put it on dropbox so you can download it? c:

Man this ref is freaking gorgeous. I adore how much information you are able to put into a reference sheet without it coming off as over bearing. Sairse has a gorgeous design with very pleasing color combos (Autumn is my favorite of her forms followed by winter!) The muted bg really helps to bring out each form's color as well. Overall a beautiful and informative reference beb!!

I always love your reference sheets so much! The detail in this one is amazing, with all the colour schemes and poses all set out in a way that makes everything easy to find and understand! The line art on the images always looks so neat and clean too, which makes all the details easy to see c:
It's really inspirational! I never look forward to refs, but now I'm taking a week or two to myself in order to get some done, and I'm actually looking forward to it <3
