Been a long while since I'd drawn one of my own dragons. Or any dragons for that matter.
This beauty is Tephris the dragon Matriarch. Youngest of the ancient Dragon who roam about the world of the Macabre.
She is the patron to the Paladin Order and has helped to guide their order and keep it free of the corrupting influences of the Necromancers.
She is one of several Kaiju sized beasties that roam my stories world. Despite her prowess she has never been capable of besting her older sister Kul'Nar in battle, especially not since her sister fell in battle with the Necromancers and corrupted into a Dracolich.
I apologize that it took so long to complete this and that updates have been so slow of late. I've had so little energy and drive recently and just can't seem to get my sleep schedule to return to a happy cycle.
I keep finding myself completely drained of energy right when its time for my usual live stream. Yo Y
Hopefully I can get that sorted out soon.
I'm not sure what my next project will be just yet, but I have been in great need of flexing my creative writing muscles again. So I can get back into a writing mode to finish my novella.
Kills me that I still don't have a solid work to point people to to be able to say start here.
Thank you all again for your continued support, it means a ton to me, more than I know how to properly express.
Remember you can always find me on the discord if you ever wanna learn more about the ideas I've been ever so slowly building onto in my head. ;D
Sorry for my updates being so infrequent of late, I've been suffering from an intense lack of energy these past weeks making it very difficult to wake up and get various tasks complete. To T
Tried a different approach to the grass with this one that helped to save a lot of time tho I'm not so sure its quite as appealing to look at.
I really need to start making time to start putting these stories down for people to read. Check out Patron Tiers for the variants!
Phewa this took so much longer than I wanted it to. TTo TT
I originally was aiming to draw over one of my AI outputs, but the more I tried to refine and correct the anatomy the more off it made other sections till the whole thing just looked really static and bland.
So I swapped gears and focused on just using it as inspiration.
I don't have a lot of story with this one, their not any major characters in particular, just examples of the size difference the Ladies of "The Fang" can undergo during their transformation into wolf form.
I've gotten so slow of late I wanna try and focus on doing some studies to see if I can't develop a better means of speeding up my work process.
Especially since the AI tech just isn't were I need it to be to get any great use out of it in my workflow yet.
Interestingly enough this image does work as an input on Midjourney, even the nude variant. (currently available to Silver Tier patrons and above!) Though strangely it really mangles my style.
They come out looking like I drew them using only half my brain with no regard to the impossible pursuit of perfection.
Tho it sometimes helps to get a figure to reach the proportions it otherwise often refuses to provide. :\
On other fronts just went through another major dental surgery. So wont be streaming for a couple nights. This one was pretty bad. They did a piss poor job with the anesthetic, which starting off felt like them driving hot needles into my skull, then later failing to provide the necessary effect as I was feeling so much pain I had to request an additional shot, which again hurt like a hot needle through my skull, and still barely dulled the pain I was undergoing. =o =
A lesser person would have needed a Xanax.
looks like the next appointment, in some 3 months will be to finally start the dam dentures process. I want implants so bad, no clue tho if i'll be able to qualify for them, which will again add nearly a year of surgeries. le sigh. I just can't win. TTo TT
