whoa the new dA submit page
Felt like drawing my OC Aelis again. The last time he had a solo picture was around April or May last year... ?__? One of the reasons I draw him so infrequently is probably my inability to draw swords lol.
And he always appears with a sword.
I was halfway through painting this thing when I realised I have absolutely no idea how to draw wings OTL. So I had to pause halfway to find references and tutorials....Having to draw them feather by feather was tedious but I'm pretty satisfied with the result.
I've been dabbling with semi-realism lately so I decided to incorporate some elements into this painting. But in the end I'm probably going to stick with anime-manga style :>Done on Illuststudio
