Flee by PaashTheSneasel Flee by PaashTheSneasel
Blargh, should have chopped off the empty part at the bottom but by now I can't be bothered.

Either way, this was much fun to draw. It was inspired by something which happened between ~Kirona and I in a chat. It'd be sort of hard to explain since you weren't there to see it, but I think Kirona explained it very well at one point in the conversation: "A cat-sized dragon riding on the shoulder of a sprinting midget".

It was memorable enough that I thought I'd draw it.

I'm the sprinting midget since my chatsona is a Nellian, and Kirona is the cat-sized dragon. It took me a while to figure out my character's colours, but in the end I think this looks alright.
Also, I have to say a big thank you to ~TeaPuck for giving me a kneadable eraser on Wednesday three weeks ago, and another to NalaFontaine for letting me know the way I colour doesn't pop out! I tried to correct that with the eraser on this piece, been experimenting with it and despite the fact I probably messed up the lighting, I sort of like how it turned out (except the scanner made pretty much every part I erased on blue/grey). It does look better IRL, though.

Note to self, red is a bother to erase.

I'm also pretty satisfied with the Nellian's pose, but not so much with the dragon's... it looks sort of an awkward position that doesn't fit. But I'll do better next time! :iconanimefaceplz:

That's all for now, folks!

This turned out quite nice :3 I like the perspective in this and the shading is quite nice as well. I love the expressions and as you stated the dragon does seem a bit out of place in the picture and rather stiff in comparison to your own character who seems to be moving quickly and fluidly. and yeah thats about it. keep up the good work!

Thanks for the critique. ^^

Would you know of any way to correct a pose like that (dragon) if I ever plan on doing something like that again, by the way? o3o

hmm well considering the dragon looks rather surprised by the sudden movement i would say try to go for something loos like hanging on to his sleeve by his front claws or even being pulled along by his tail.

The situation aimed to have it sitting on the Nellian's shoulder, since that's what happened in the chat, but I guess what you said would still have worked, since I started "fleeing" pretty unexpectedly when it happened. :giggle:

Thanks for the input. ;P

This is very nice, I am sure that it looks better IRL but I quite like it this way. I also like how your anthros have three toes, one of my friends draw hers that way and I quite prefer the style, though I am not particularly sure WHY I prefer it.
You did well with the coloring, and the erasing technique seems to serve you well.
And yeah the dragon's pose is a little awkward but that's ok, i didn't even notice it until I started really analyzing the picture.

Thank you. :D

I think if the dragon had been bigger, though, the posing mistake would have been much more apparent. ^^;

I thought it looked a bit simplistic, but then again, Kirona didn't give me any details on it so I had to wing it, sorta. XD
