Jungle Queen by BloodhoundOmega Jungle Queen by BloodhoundOmega
Finished this just a moment ago, because I wanted to have her out of my head, before I re-start studying.

The sketch for this one must be over three years old by now. I remember wanting to draw her for the EuroFurence 9 art show, but then I liked the sketch too much for giving it away for money.

On the one hand it's sad, that it had to wait for completition so long, on the other hand it was good, because my colouring skills now are much better than three years ago.

Her bird part is undefined, but her feline part is a King cheetah. I had left away the wings, because 1) I liked how her back had turned out and 2) I had no idea how to draw the wings correctly in that pose.

The colouring turned out surprisingly well, as I have used no reference for it whatsoever (while I did use references for the body and the statue in the back when sketching it).

Too late I remembered that I wanted to make her blind. The eye was meant to be milky white, with a blueish or really bright lilca tint. Mah.

EDIT: Added a little highlight to her beak, so that it stands out a bit more at least.

While honoured about the feature it feels a bit like the "odd one out" among all those photos of real cats. XD

I think it's amusing that my drawn gryphon is surrounded by photography of actual tigers and snow leopards and so on. On the other hand it's very flattering, too! ^^

Wow, beautiful work on this gryphon. I love the King Cheetah colors. The pose and shape of the body is very regal. Just a lovely piece of work. This was an instant fav for me. May I ask what type of paper you used on this work?

:iconbloodhoundomega:
BloodhoundOmega Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2007
Ah... in this case it was just some slightly thicker paper, originally meant for sketches. I had done the sketch when I didn't have any bristol yet.

There is no way that I can favorite this and not comment on how awesome it looks. You did an awesome job on this. I love everthing about it. From the colors you used to the how the body turned out. I love the feathers and talons a lot, but what I love the most is the eye. It really helps to bring the picture alive. That in my opinion is what helps make a picture really awesome and stand out. I don't know why I'm saying such things. Iguess i'm just drawn toward the eye. I'm not very happy with one of my pictures because the eyes makes the pictures look dead. Plus it turned out really dark. Good luck on the rest to come. Btw nice choice of colors in the eye.

Wahnsinn, was für Papier und Stifte benutzt Du denn bitte um so eine satte Farbe mit Buntstiften hinzubekommen? Ich kann mit meinen noch so stark aufdrücken, etwas vom Papier scheint immer durch :(

Jedenfalls ist das Bild wirklich toll geworden, ich mag die Colo und die Details sehr, vor allem diese satten Farben... *neidisch guck*

Um das Durchscheinen des Papiers zu vermeiden grundiere ich fast alle meine Bilder mit Aquarellfarben und zum richtigen Kolorieren nehme ich dann Polychromos. Wenn ich es bekomme benutze ich sehr gerne Bristol Papier, aber ansonsten Papier, das mindestens 180mg² hat.

Danke, werde ich mal ausprobieren! Ich habe es mal ne Weile mit farbigem Papier probiert das grob die Grundfarbe des gesamten Bildes hatte aber da es sehr grob war hat man da auch immer was gesehen. Polychromos muss ich mal im Laden ausprobieren, kenne ich noch garnicht. Danke für die Tips :)

She looks beautiful; I love the amount of texture and detail in her fur and background. The gem looks so smooth and beautiful, and so does her beak and her lovely eyes. The fur looks so soft and the spots are placed so well. I love this incredible piece of work; I'm so glad you didn't sell it for money! It belongs here with you, lovely and fully colored so that all can see the Jungle Queen in all her glory.
