Look into the sky, horizon-bound!

MUSIC.

PHEW! I managed to finish this before my leave!
A belated birthday picture for ~Silver5 of his character Jake Tyler, The Scarlet Flash and King of the Post Office, flying on his Personal Monster Leila the dragon and no doubt carrying some deliveries and being awesome while doing so.
also this ain't fuckin' pokemon, this is an originalverse version of Jake Tyler, refer to the "Jake Tyler" link above. >8I

Happy be-lated Birthday, Jamie!

Another instance of my "Illustrations are the best remedy for comic-overdose!". This particular one took me yesterday and today evenings.
I still have two more gift-illustrations pending (you two know who you are) and I will get to them sometime after I come back from Denmark. OTL

COMMENTS :heart:'D!

AAAAAHHHHHH. I saw this in someone's favourites and had no idea you'd done it. So pretty! I love the movement and you've really captured the badassery of riding through the skies on a fucking dragon. Really good. :D

All I ever need in liffffeeee.

The rendering is gorgeous but what really giddies my sheep is dat composition. It's so simple and clean but effective like brand new well oiled machines. I think it's time for a new wall paper.

And smearing my face all over the monitor for the next half hour.

that being said, congratulations on that gawgeous blue shading. lovelovelove
