ugh NJ I just look in your thread and I love everything you do. That Virizion is absolutely gorgeous and I love its expression. That ink work is incredible; have you done other stuff in that medium? I'd love to see it; you're very good at it!
so intense, so many deets :)) I'm really taken by the level of detail, and it all being done by hand is absolutely crazy...
It's always tough with pieces you feel like you could have done more with, but absolute biggest props for getting things together in time; even without a "real" background I feel like it's a really strongth piece
that legion of scales is intense... and those two pythons came out awesome
Ah it looks super good NJ! The amount of detail you've put into it is really awe inspiring (and a little intimidating, haha)! I really like how silky the cape looks.
But beyond that, I wanted to point out something that might be a mistake! It might not be but it looks a little off to me, the line of teeth on the right (the croc's left) are attached to the jaw which looks white as opposed to the warm grey it is in the rest of the pic (the colour changes kind of abruptly between one of the front teeth and the ones on the side). Intentional or just something missed?
Edit: Ugh I'm the worst at pointing out these sorts of things. Here's a visual aid!
Seriously, the little details really are what make this amazing; that many hand drawn scales is fucking intense man haha. For some reason I really love the kinda circle like patterning you have on the snakes, it adds another awesome layer of patterning that just makes it so cool
Great seeing it progress too, hope your portfolio review goes well :)
