Draxx -contest entry- Edited by GhostLiger Draxx -contest entry- Edited by GhostLiger
[Edit]Re-uploaded for improved lighting

Done for :iconwolfclawalchemist:'s Mythical creatures contest

It... was... PAINFUL TT_TT

But now it's done I'm so relieved... now to throttle Wolfclaw... (Lol kidding :XD:)

In all honesty, Draxx himself wasn't too hard to draw and colour... it was the background that gave me the hard time. I went through 4 different set ups before giving up and playing it by ear with a ref.

Anyway, I know :iconhitokirihimura: will recognise this guy. He was one of two creatures I created for one of our RPs who tried to take over the Twilight Forest.

The other creature was a big shaggy beast named Turpin

I call Draxx a "he" but in reality he's an Hermaphrodite.

*Finally relaxes*

Draxx and picture were drawn by and belong to me

Wow, this came out fantastic, Moonbay! You really pulled off the colors! The underwater look is beautiful and the coral especially has a great, realistic texture. Great job! How'd you do in the contest? =)

Thanks :D

I like to think of this as evidence that using a ref works. Since without a ref, the backgrounds I was trying completely failed.

I don't know how I did yet. I'm waiting for Wolfclaw to come back with a result.

There was a poll put up that was supposed to count for part of the result, but I requested that it didn't because it's more of a popularity contest than an art contest that way... And considering I topped the poll, I'd like to see someone complain that I only stopped the poll from counting out of jealously :XD:

Welcome! =D

I agree, and I really need to utilize that more. References ARE really helpful!

Hope you do well! =D This entry looks beautiful, I think he'll (or she'll?) like it!

Indeed. The only problem in some cases is actually finding the right ref ^^;

Thanks! She called it stunning, so I hope so.

Yeaaaah, I think that's why I never use them. XD (Esp. when it comes to people poses! How the heck do you find the exact pose you want? And so this is why we stand in front of mirrors, staring at ourselves in the hopes that we'll be able to figure out how to transpose what we see onto paper. XD)

Awesome! =D And you're welcome!

Looks good! :D *peers at Deathy* What's this about memory erasing?

Thanks :D

Heh, you remember the Tegaki entry I made "Traitor of the Forest"?

Well the story behind that is that in an RP with Deathy, Shadow, feeling rather put out by Kokita's attitude, tried to get revenge by letting Draxx and Turpin (Who were scheming to take over the Twilight Forest) thought the forest's barrier (When Shadow's seeking revenge he doesn't think things through properly).

Naturally the two of them caused all kinds of shit to fly. TC saved the day at the last moment and destroyed Draxx. He was just about to take out Turpin too, but before he could the rest of the watchers stepped in (TC wasn't supposed to be interfering). They ressurected Draxx and sent both monsters back to the quarry with their memories of everything wiped.

I'm proud of that RP (Though the memory loss idea was :iconelectricfox5:'s cuz he plays TC and the watchers

Draxx: Excuse me? Who are you, why are you poking me, and what's this about my memory being erased?

Kokita: She means that you've been such an idiot and smacked you in the head with her banhammur. Which in the end wiped out your memory :XD:

... yeah, that's the explanation XD

I was um-ing and ah-ing over how to do it and tried all kinds of brushes in my inventory with no luck, and just randomly decided to try a standard brush with the scatter turned up. I think I crashed for about 10 minutes when I realised that was all it needed ^^;

Love your signature btw! It's so true!
