Gift - Zeera by SiberiumAbyss Gift - Zeera by SiberiumAbyss
EDIT: Either it's because I haven't gotten a wink of sleep last night no matter how hard I tried, I'm just being a very critical artist or maybe that it's verily notable, but my gosh is there a lot wrong with this piece. ._. Ah well, I guess that's what I get for rushing it.


Guess who just got over the worst of their art block? :P

Yeah, I'm terribly sorry in advance, everyone, for the long hiatuses in art I've been taking for the past year. I don't know what's gotten over me, but yeah, the title is pretty self-explanatory. I wanted to draw a little something for :icondark-spine-dragon:. No major incentives as to why of course, apart from the fact that I just find her character Zeera absolutely awesome. :D Epic design, intriguing personality, I just had to. ^^; Egh... Well, as much as I'd like to ramble on and on,this medicine has really done wonders to disorient me today, and I expect that'll continue until tomorrow. But yeah, this was just a few hours of work to get myself back into the swing of digital painting... I'd almost forgotten how. :noes:

Zeera is copyrighted to the awesome :icondark-spine-dragon:

I just got home from NY and I finally get to comment. I saw this a few minutes before I had to head out the door and make a three hour drive to NY, so sorry for late comment. :)

First off: I am seriously honored that Zeera in a way broke the worst of your artblock. I am honored in a way. :)

Secondly, this is...this beautiful Sib! I am seriously beyond words....  I have gotten a good amount of Zeera goft art, some in which I feel I do not deserve, and NONE of them quite look like this. This one will forever stick out to me. It is so vastly different from what I have seen of Zeera. For example: the way you defined her scales. It is just beyond amazing and do NOT even get me started on that eye. Let me tell you something about that eye. It is PERFECT. And I mean it. I have always imagined Zeera's eyes to have that look in the dead on night, but I could never get a image of it through my own skills. I appalud you and as a person who has been drawing Zeera since 07. I must say you have done a much better job on that eye than I could in several more years of experiences. I am truly amazed.

The eye reflects her ability to strike fear in others, while the poisonous gas emitting from her mouth represents a form of pain and attack. I love how the colors clash with each other and OOooooo!!! THAT BACKGROUND GIRL! MMMMM! DAMN! I love the blue lighting, I am in total love with it!

Thank you so much Sib! I am...I am beyond words of gratitude! :heart: Thank you so much. I could go on and on at how thankful I am, but it could never speak the volumes of exactly how grateful I truly am. :iconbrohugplz: Again...thank you...

:iconrlytearplz: Aw gosh dang it...! Someone fetch me a paper bag, I'm blushing furiously here...!! :iconohstopityouplz:

Seriously, you're telling me you're beyond words, but I can honestly say I'm soundly the same way for how much this comment means to me. :thanks: I was starting to feel a few tears well in my eyes towards the end of the comment, and I can't seem to stop smiling for the life of me right now even after reading all that. To say the least, I'm really, REALLY happy you liked this little gift for ya.  :) And it's true - I've honestly adored Zeera's design and character to no end. It's been an inspiration to me, and I felt the best way to prove it would be to draw her as a means of ridding myself of that art block once and for all. At long last, I'm drawing frivolously again!

And there's a little trick to that - admittedly, yes, it's painful how much detail it reduces, but for the eye to have its prominence, the side of the face in which it glows most brilliantly has to be borderline black, being barely visible.... Still annoyed with how much detail that little feat just killed, but I'm just glad it had the effect I was aiming for, and that I did Zeera some form of justice at least. :D

You're welcome, and likewise - thank you kindly for the awesome comment! This easily made my day. :iconshaplz:

np sis :).
>.< hope I can finish mine. I feel like college is worse the a art block because you get constantly distracted from your art work that you can even draw few lines before college gives you more HW and tightens your leash even more as the art work is barlly out of reach.

Well, how one generally interprets the picture is entirely up to the viewer. :) That's the fun of art for both artist and viewer alike. ^_^

Thank you. :) I'm trying my best to get back into the swing of art again... it's been a while.

Okay I finally got around to commenting lol.

So, anyway, as I said before, gratz on getting over that part of your block. Really hoping to see more of yer work soon! :D Onto the pic itself, Zeera looks awesome in your style. The part that really gets me is the textures mixed with the lighting. Seriously, that blue in the background against her scales is my favorite part. I also like how you did the inside of the mouth, and how her eye contrasts the blue. Kinda reminds me of a duality bit; like the nicer parts of her are trying to show, but it is being blocked out by the darker colors.

Seriously, it's nice to see ya active again. Two pics in a few days...keep it up!

Heh, to be fair, I didn't even know my shading style had a texture at all. XD It's all from scratch. But now that you mention it, it DOES have kind of a stony, grainy kind of texture to it. :o Weird.

Thank you for the overall observant and thought out feedback. :) I'll try not to let y'all down!
