Completed: Caevyr (Commission) by NinjaKato


_________________________________________________
UPDATE: Lines and flats done :3 Now onto the shading! :la:
_________________________________________________
Sketch of a commission for Caevyr of their character Caevyr -- Newest Ref by Caevyr (closer to the newer pelt colours in this one)

The body is meant to be a bear, lion, wolf hybrid (it's their own made up species) so I tried to invoke a few attributes from all three animals into the body design. Her head is probably more bear and lion with a bit of wolf in there (the ears).
The front paws are supposed to be lion like with retractable claws while the back are more canine (but I made them a bit wider/larger to fit along with the front).
I made the body a bit 'stockier' to mimic a bit more 'bear' but I kept as close to the reference and information given as possible.
**Reference for the body posing -- lakela.deviantart.com/art/TS-M…

I may do a bit more adjusting of proportions a bit later but here's the sketch. I hope to finish this one by tonight ^^ This is a bigger one so it'll take longer but I hope it looks ok.

What size canvas do you draw on if I may ask

NinjaKato Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013
The sizes actually vary a lot ^^; but the smallest I draw on for things of this nature is probably 1200x1600. Again, the sizes vary a lot depending on what I'm working on and how much detail I'm doing ^^;

The eyes remind me of a small winged dream wolf candle holder I have. The candle goes in his head and makes his eyes glow blue (also makes them follow your movement)

I gotta agree with *CajesTheTabby here.. no offense meant ~Caevyr! If they had designed the body type itself to be less wolflike (eg. looong like a lion or pear shaped like a bear) it would have conveyed the species a lot better. Sticking to the owner's original idea though you still did a really good job making it your own and trying to make the thickness stand out a big more. Great work on the fur detail too! I really must commission you sometime to do my wolfbear self :> *needs a real job!*

Bear, wolf and lion hybrid? I dont mean to be mean to the owner, but this just looks like a big brown wolf :/ I cant really see the bear in it and certainly not the lion part..

Also, do you make the scars without lines? I noticed they are on the sketch, but not the flatcolor.

Either way this is gorgeous, your lineart is so detailed and fine, and the glow effect you made on the eyes and necklace looks so good.

Yeah I followed the reference as close as I could but I did try to add in a few things to make the 'species' clearer, although yes here it does look more like a large brown wolf :C

I didn't add the scars in with line art, but they are added now. I didn't want to add them in until I did the shading as they're not going to be lined.

Thank you ^^

Not your fault though, I checked the picture in your description, and that too looks more like a normal wolf.

Ah ok, thanks for telling me :)

You're welcome c:

Did you re-sized the head when you colored it? Or maybe it's the colors tricking my eyes.

DID YOU RECORD IT BB

NinjaKato Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
Not this one. I did record the other one but I'm still working on editing it :XD: I have to find a decent song too that YouTube won't freak out over :I
I can try to record the shading for this one? It's a $40 commission (I believe) so the shading is going to be pretty detailed ^^

NinjaKato Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
Yeah I put it there now ^^ I didn't want to add it until I was ready to do the shading :3 So it's there ^__^
