*SDS-King Justin Arisdale's Coronation Portrait by Gneiss-chert *SDS-King Justin Arisdale's Coronation Portrait by Gneiss-chert
*Updated* I got a great critique and from that I learned that he was lacking definition in his face.  It looked to flat.  This is what I have so far.  I can put up a comparison later. Changed the gems and cut the hair back a bit.
  
This was so much fun! I need to stop learning new ways of coloring because now I have to go back and fix my other art!  This time EYES! fav.me/d5nf4um Thanks `anako-art More practice with folds!
Took about 12 hours to do.  Manga studio 5.

The outfit he is wearing is for his royal coronation.  Whole outfit WIP fav.me/d6xbli5

Justin is a velociraptor for those who don't already know =) Reference sheet here: fav.me/d6pxmm6

Thanks! They are all part of a novel my sister ~BloodAngel28 and I are doing together I hope to have out this year.  If I go with a publisher I am uncertain if I will make this year.  They take sooooo long to get back to you.

XD I don't mind! =3

Yes about 6 books long.
Rough summary and character list here! fav.me/d6qwfe2
We also have a group :iconsilver-dolphins-saga:

 I will have a better summary up in a month or two.  It is a terirbly rough summary that only touches the back story.  It Doesn't cover the real depth and amount of unique ideas we have come up with.

Metallica1147 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2014
I think I'll wait for the full summary then if you don't mind. Just so I can get all the information you know? I don't mind the wait. But wow 6 books long! Is there any out or do you plan to release them all at once?

Gneiss-chert Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
No problem! It will be better I left a lot of coined terms out.
Basic run down is medieval times, magic, and gods, and a human anthro conflict, in that anthro races are the top species and humans suffer under their scrutiny.

None are out yet.  Book one is almost ready for an editor! =)

If I self publish I hope to have it out by march.  If I go publisher it could be a year.  I plan on one at a time right now.

Well if the novel sells well! *prays* I want to purse an anime company too.

A gallery would be great! I found that I have some learning to do still as this was actually declined for quality of all things.  But I got a nice critique and I aware of the flaws.  So I just fixed some.
I want to go back and touch up the left gem it look blurry!

The face looks much better! The character overall has great improvement, but the background.. eh. 
There are a few specks of white on the background, and some of hair shines go onto the background! I miss the old background color.  :l

I know they are very different skin wise, I guess that's due to their differences between species. Still, those body traits you're saying are two important characteristic of both characters, and Justin's outfit here have the same colors than Walldryx's usual outfit. I find unexpected comparisons at times between characters, but most of the time it happens that they've striking similarities between characters I compare.

Thank you very much!!! I will share the whole thing soon! I may just put it up uncolored for the moment.
I have a holiday picture in the works with a more causal version in blue.  I'm interested to see which look is preferred, although I'm thinking the black, red and gold of Arisdale suits him best.
