Beast King Zoola
Character sheet. Front/back 3 quarter. Head turns.
Done in Paint Tool Sai/ ClipStudio Piant

I decided to go back and take another stab at this piece. I've now spent a little over 30 hours on it. This was a good study for practicing material, lighting, and design.

I want to thank a good friend of mine for really helping me on the piece with his brutal critiques. I have addressed most of the issues pointed out, but for now I give up and will try again once more when I become a better artist than I am now. :)

Dude, your art is awesome. Do you happen to use references? o:
Taihido Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you. Glad you like it. I use reference every so often but definitely not for something as simple as a cat :P 
1920-kun Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're very inspiring with how you're improving. I'm also trying :") 
Taihido Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
