digital art of an oc but only showing the lower half of their face. they're facing to the right in a 3/4 portrait. the main subjects of the image are the lips, which are light up by warm yellow high and shaded with light pinks and light purples. there are strands of brown hair visible off to the side, but they're not prominent

drew something and hated 90% of it so here's the 10% i didn't hate

Their scales are indgo and their claws and horns are a dark, almost black color.

bought realistic paint studio since it's on sale for $10 and i thought it would be cute for sketching. i really liked the pencils and pastels brush physics and will probably use those to do thumbnail sketches. i don't know enough about watercolors or oil paints to comment on those, but the brush textures seem pretty nice.

If you're looking at reviews for this, i think most of them were made in october or at least before ver 1.20 came out. v1.20 fixes some of the issues people had, mainly to do with canvases being locked to 72dpi (you can make a custom canvas and change the dpi/dimensions) and the frames being tied to whether you're saving as png or jpg

cringetober day 14 - i'm not a furry but

idk if this counts but this is actually a wip of a species i'm making for one of my aus, more info about em under the cut


-live on a very cold planet orbiting a binary star system
-gender is abolished because they're a monosex species and each individual is a true hermaphrodite
-any individual can mate with any other individual
-lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young; the eggs require an overwintering period where it gets real cold, or else they won't hatch
-their horn genetics are Fucked Up so you get a lot of variability in horn size/number/shape
-i'm still thinking about family structure but i'm thinking something like a mix between polar bears (parents and young) and penguins (the entire colony/tribe works together but doesn't feed each others' kids or anything)
-shed their hair/fur twice a year, they use their fallen hair/fur to line their nests and maybe to make some clothes for the kids/close relatives
-a n t i f r e e z e b l o o d
