Feathers and Fur Study by harwicks-art Feathers and Fur Study by harwicks-art
Not a whole lot to say about this one... I wanted to play around trying to recreate some feathers and fur textures on a character, and I thought it'd be fun to draw Gilda. Not a fancy composition, pose, or really clever idea behind this one... just trying out some different techniques. Oh, and since people were complaining that I don't do enough to wallpaper dimensions, you get a cheap background with some rocks to fill out the space. Sorry... Maybe next time I'll actually plan a composition.

I do really like the Gilda design though, and would be happy to see her return in Season 3. Jerk characters are underrated... Sometimes it's just plain fun to have someone on hand to make the biting comments from time to time.

Seriously, Gilda. If you wanna be forgiven, then come back and apologize. But if you come back to hurt any of my friends, I WILL be forced to attack you with my magic!

Even though she is a jerk, I really like her. Maybe because she's a griffon. :D

I love the texture blending you did, it looks very much like the feathers of a bird merging into the fur of a mammal around her throat and flank. The eyes and tail are very well colored. The lighting is the best I have seen in any artwork of Gilda yet.
