I'm lacking a proper, working art blog and I drew a small sketchy thing. ;;

Too bad I haven’t drawn properly in ages since I can’t really draw the images I have in my head.
This is a character I’ve had floating in my head for a good while. He’s supposed to look dark iridescent, “oil slick” (I miserably failed at the attempt to create the look I wanted..) with smooth coat and some feathers here and there. His frame is very slender and compact, he’s definitely a runner. I’d imagine him being flexible and bendy.
I haven’t designed him any antlers/horns yet and his tail might change as well, I just wanted to give him at least something..
With his eye color, I’m torn between this pale grey or fiery reddish orange.

His coat color kind of resembles the plumage of a common grackle.

Also, it’s not likely I’ll ever use him for anything but ehh, it’s always fun to have pretty characters. <3

For not drawing in ages, this

For not drawing in ages, this is very good~

Keep it up !

Stunning, as always!!

You might not have

You might not have accomplished the look you were going for, but the oil slick appearance came off fairly well. It's the first thing I thought when seeing him. The pale gray of his eyes fits really well.

So nice to see your art around again. ♥

@residualsausade Haha, glad

Haha, glad my rustiness isn't too obvious. Thanks! :>

Thanks, hun. Glad to be making some again, at long last. <3

I'm very content the idea is coming through from this messy scribble. Maybe he'll be a good excuse to do some color practice as well~
And aye, I'm slowly starting to lean for the grey eyes. Balances his rainbowness.. : D
Glad you enjoyyy ♥

Aaa thank you, I'm glad you like him. ;; My fingers are itching to draw more of him, only if responsibilities weren't dragging me away for now. |8<

Glad to hear that! Thanks! ♥

Thank you! Yeah, been thinking about making him a forest character, as soon as I'll figure out his personality. We'll see if it'll happen or not. :>
