Your host for tonight by BloodhoundOmega Your host for tonight by BloodhoundOmega
My finished commission for Kuntos of his vampirebat, Shade. I have never drawn a vampire bat before so this was quite a fun challenge. :D

Also this piece is a red and black feast. XD I had to smuggle in sepia into the fur and blue into the cloak to make the various shades differ from each other.

Your host for tonight by *bloodhound-omega "Such a beautiful picture! The wings and looks are so well detailed, and the short cloak and the background add to it, giving him a very nice Dracula like ire." Very unique and interesting anthro design! ( Suggested by Kenku and Featured by Katmomma )

He looks very Stoker-esque! I can see him delivering Sracula's line: "Welcome to my house! Enter freely and of our own will!"

i'm curious, what did you do for the background? :)
Reply
:iconbloodhoundomega:
BloodhoundOmega Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
I drew a circle where you now see the empty space. Then I moisted the paper with water and painted over the moist ares with thin water colours (two shades of blue), taking care that I didn't paint into either the circle or the bat.

awsmdragonqueen Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
sounds kinda tricky, painting on wet paper like that is hard to control isn't it?
ah, i'm not much of a painter ;)
you did a wonderful job with it (and the subject of course!) :clap:

:iconbloodhoundomega:
BloodhoundOmega Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2009
Well, it is hard to control, but I think it's something you can learn. There are a great deal of really amazing watercolour artists out there, like for example :iconpuimun: whom I adore secretely. :D It depends a lot on the colours, the technique and the paper you use.
