Pearlescence by thornwolf Pearlescence by thornwolf
Wow I really don't update here hardly at all anymore...

I bought some stick-on gems at the craft store and wanted to play around with them, hence this picture. I also don't get to draw kirins very often and I was trying a new marker technique. You can't see it very well in the scan but there's some glittery silvery gel pen on his horn and down his front

Markers, gel pen, and gems.

Thank you! I really like drawing white creatures, I dunno why. Maybe because there's so much room for color, even though it's white!

He kind of reminds me of Falkor, from the Neverending Story. Was that your inspiration?

No, not for this image. Falkor was more of a dog dragon, this is more equine/deer in reference. But if you go here, you can see a drawing I did that WAS an inspiration. :) [link]

Beautiful! I love the hair, how it swirls. And the eye - it feels so alive. Wonderful work. :)

Very nice Palette and exquisite attention to detail, especially in the scales. I also really like the fact that you are incorporating other medium factors into your artwork. I don't see that too often.

Even though the glitteryness didn't come through it still looks great - must be even more eye-catching in real life :toocool:

I really really wish the glitter would show, but yes, its much better in person :) I'll likely offer limited edition prints where I hand draw the glittery parts and stick on some gems as well. Just gotta get them made.

*Jawdrop* #___# I've never thought of using stick-on gems for a drawing like this... it fits so well, I would've never guessed from the thumbnail. Amazing job with the scales, you're so darn patient.

thank you! I've seen some artists use stick on thingies for their art and I like shiny stuff so I figured I might as well. I love glittery things XD And yeah the scales was a new one for me.
