Nightingale- Work in Progress by JustChasingFireflies
Nightingale- Work in Progress
Because why not show some updates every now and again. I'm happy with the progress I've made since I started digital art, and art in general... I'm about half way done at this point. LOTS of fur detail that I haven't finished in any one area yet. I am really enjoying this so far (maybe the ears are a bit funny, but I have played with them too much and don't care anymore). What makes me happiest is that this is one I've actually doing for myself for once! :D When I am done this shall be my new avatar!

Makara- Concept Art- Work in Progress by JustChasingFireflies
Makara- Concept Art- Work in Progress
Been working on this suggestion for a site that I moderate on called BeastKeeper ( beastkeeper.com/register/67). 
I have NO idea how to draw fins, or light up things underwater.. So I'm leaving this here for now. I'm open to suggestions and help on how to finish it.... 

Any suggestions or comments? 

The Makara is a creature from Hindu Mythology which is often depicted in many many different forms but is ultimatly a chimera of different animals. Most notably elephant, crocadile, stag or horse with hind quarters of an aquatic creature such as a dolphin or fish (and perhaps some bird parts). Essentially half mammal, half fish in nature. Through time depictions have changed with the arrival of different eras. So in the end this mangling of animal parts was of my own make.

It's been ages since I was last online. I have so many photos to upload it's unreal. I just haven't had the time. Or a fast enough internet connection. 

My picture Noir (Previously called Streetlamp Spider) has won the Champlain Valley Fair's Best in Show (overall Photography) and First Place (street lamp) for 2014! I never expected this, but hey, it happens. I'm so glad my first year entering was a success. This will not be my last!

Once again I am open for commissions! Mostly looking for practice. I'd like to try scenery- but don't expect amazing things from that!

Hello! I recently graduated college and am looking for work. I double majored in Anthropology and Environmental Studies with a minor in Wildlife Biology- though I really just want to study wolves.
I love photography, and I love drawing animals (especially fantasy)- though I've never had any classes or instruction on either.... I just sort of wing it.
I'm sorry I have so many pictures of cats. I have two in my apartment, and three back home... so I tend to take lots... I'm not a crazy cat lady don't worry.

I'm here on DA to learn and get feedback.

If there is something you'd like to see more of, or a commission you have for me, I am usually open and would like to hear! I don't bite! :)

I am nearly always open to commissions!!!

Haha right?! And people always change their names and such. I thought you were another Charix. My Wajas was hacked by someone I knew and frozen shortly after. I was getting inactive on there and most of my friends were gone anyway so I didn't really mind. It had been ages since I played. Were you ever on the Xat Chat? I was an admin there and was on ALL the time!
