It's flight muscles were so thick they actually served as a sort of armour. It was beaten easily beacause of it's wieght limit, it was pinned against a wall and couldn't do a thing about it, that's the hollow bones, which means, the neck area (there is always a neck if there are teeth and a spine)will be quite the weakness. Snappy snap mr gryle, if you get my piont.
I love the ear and hair combo. And the way her profile (esp. by the nose/forehead) is so skull-like...again, it gives a neat alien vibe.
The toes under the bent leg feel a bit like bubbletoes, rather than structured-feeling like the other ones.
The front arms work pretty well here, actually, though I'd still work on making the shoulders a little more structured, rather than rounded like you have here.
just curious, do you reference a model in these shots? (i could understand for that for the first one you probably took a close look at a tiger or other large feline, but) the pose in this one is very human.. i mean it sort of confuses my mind, in a good way. oh and the wings are beautiful, as usual
Nope, no models... By the time I get around to using references it's too late, the drawing is too far along to change. It's one of my biggest mistakes. I really need to start using good reference material. As for the cat parts, I have several animal anatomy books that I've been using for years. But like I said, I rarely use them at first (when they're needed most). These sketches I did during my lunch break (and a little past my lunch break to be honest) without a reference...
