Katherine by Lady-of-Link Katherine by Lady-of-Link
*faints* yes Sebastian, I am finally putting it up XDDD

This was a late birthday gift for *Raakone who had his birthday on Apr 26 X_x I actually was able to send a copy to his e-mail some time ago, but even still, it was late...

ANYWAYS! His OC Katherine who is from this really cool race of peacock tail-feathered people. I remember that she is sort of a warrior-priestess, so I tried to design a look that reflected that. If you are curious about this character, more on Katherine: [link] More on Pavonians [link]

Now I was worried I might have messed up the face a bit, but thankfully I was told it came out alright ^^ though the eyes on her tail-feathers are (as I thought) to big. I duno why I made them so big ^^; I think I was being lazy seeing how each feather I had to draw/color individually, making larger ones more convenient for me. I can't draw feet so I tried to hide that with some background elements which only emphasized that I can't draw bare feet D:> BWAAAAAAAAAA

Katherine (c) *Raakone

Here's hoping they don't secretly watch you while your back is turned DX

You're right.....when those tail-eyes ("ocelli") are open, they see. It's a Pavonian thing.

I'm sure that he didn't mind this being late. That you made a gift at all should matter =).
Agreed, the face looks all right. The eyes on the tail-feathers are a little big, I agree, but it does fit. I guess that's because of the colours. You hid the feet very well xD but from what I can tell, they aren't as bad as you think they are ^^
The only thing that looks a little "off" is the leg. Other than that it's a really amazing piece of art =)

male peacock tail? XD well they look GREAT ^^ shiny lil featherhairs..
I will teach you how to draw feet :) it's just conspicuous when they disappear behind a rock that small. .. and her leg is backwards.. but otherwise this is super great! and what a cool pose.

yup :D it's an interesting idea.

aw gee, the leg does look backwards D:> didn't even notice that.... if you tell me how to draw feet, that would be the best <3

we need to do some kind of simultaneous-drawing-program thing sometime. they exist.. we can show each other tips :)

I think what happened with the leg was you did what I tend to do with proportion.. you let the body play the telephone game with you. Each part looked fine compared to the previous part, but as a WHOLE it doesn't quite work because she'd be twisted like a corkscrew.

I don't know if my internet would be able to handle something like that X___x

the leg actually started out with her standing on the front of her feet in a pigeon-toed stance, but changed just the foot later on, and I think that's how the leg got messed up looking...hopefully I won't make that mistake again.

I know this is late. But I'll say cool, I came up with the type of dress she's wearing there, a "Flower Dress"....look at the hem and you'll see why!

Thank you. Any questions about the "Flower dress", or the character? Please ask.

Ok uh...did you make the dress up yourself?

I came up with the idea of the "flower dress", with the hem resembling petals (hence the name). I've drawn simpler variants of this, but our friend here did the first really elaborate "flower dress" in this picture! Way cool!

Any other questions?

This is wonderful. Thank you very much. Like everything from her hair to the background....and yes, I still love that "flower dress" she's wearing (and I haven't come up with a better name for that garment than "flower dress"...ok, "flower saia" is a bit more accurate, as "Saia" means "Dress" in Pavonian)
