Articuno by Tharalin Articuno by Tharalin
Second of the legenday bird pokemon.
this was even more fun than Moltres, maybe because blue is and will always be my favourite color :D.
I think this drawing is actually prettier than Mltres, but I guess thats where opinions part.

The hardest thing was to make the background look like ice, and not ike a stone cavern.
I think I did a decend job with that, considering I never tried drawing ice from underneath before.

I'm offended on your behalf that this picture only got twenty comments. It's phenomenal.

Just beyond graceful and majestic, you've truly captured Articuno's intense beauty, I'm feeling short of words right now, I'll just shut up and delight my eyes now.

You did a lot better with this pose! And that old tree to the right, it looks very nice how its branches and roots and up blending into the walls and ground. I don't know much about the feather set-up on bird wings, but I think they look nice anyway. But the colors on the feathers look flat, perhaps the feathers can use some minor detailing.

And I really like the color blue. :aww:

Thanks :D.
I'm still experimenting with wings and ways to draw them that they don't look flat or overloaded wich work fast, up to now I need way too much time making them look like this.
Yesss blue is my favourite color :heart:!

I'm still experimenting with drawing wings, they look slightly different everytime and are right now way to time consuming.

Yeah I still have trouble with wings. I'm lazy and don't bother with making them look realistic at all.
