Cejula and the Beast

I recently accepted a commission from AJ, who commissioned this piece. When I sent him an estimate, I asked if he would like me to go 'over the top' with this piece. Although it was more expensive, he generously agreed to the more detailed version I described. Here is a WIP of the artwork. I am quite pleased with how it is coming along. I'll post the colored version when it is done. Thanks again, AJ!

Firestar, the creature was fascination to draw. AJ sent me two references. One looked something like a Moa (a giant flightless bird, now exticnt) and the other ones of the large, colorful birds related to the emus (I forget the exact name). We then chatted a bit about birds and their relationship to dinosaurs via email. Then he gave me artistic license. I love that! I went with a saurian head and a bird like body and I think it works.
Rachel, it was great to meet you at Con at the Cob. Thanks for the comment! I hope to see you again at future shows.
