Shinerai by Blacklotuscomic Shinerai by Blacklotuscomic
I added two watermarks! Because seriously, my dragons have popped up on many sites, with the watermarks removed and it's starting to piss me off. If I come across even more art theft, I'm seriously going to put up BIG ASS watermarks on it -_-.

This is my Christmas gift for *Shinerai It's shin. And shin = :heart: SO DON'T STEAL!
I made some mistakes in shin's design, please ignore them. Shin is being redesigned by shin atm, that is why shin is colorwashed fluffy shin in this picture :3

I'm really proud of this picture for some reason. My intuos 2 A3 works wonderfully well, it's fantastic! I now even really like how the coloring came out. Look at that, I like one of my own pictures! It's been a long time since I really liked something...So I hope you all will like it too! I can't wait to finish my next artworkcommission, my new tablet has given me new hopes for creating better high res artworks and commissions!

Shin drinking a cup of tea :3 the best way to warm up for a cold day.

Aww, chibi shin and tea! Go tea! And strainers, and i thought my family were the only ones who used them! XD I love the colour co-ordination in the piece, your colouring rocks!but alecan was right about the wings, however it does not really matter because this is awesome anyway!

Your dragons are always so amazing and wonderful to look at. Love the colours and the wings~ And the clouds are lovely. :)
I think you should put a big ass watermark in the middle... :P That'd be hard to remove.

I remember you commenting on one of my dragon pics ages ago, one I'd constructed out of the Dragonart Book. You said then that yours hadn't arrived. I ask you now, though a bit late...you seriously think you need it? This stuff blows mine away anyday.

If your work is so easily stolen then I think you should make your watermarks larger, maybe even add a color to them and just fade it enough so it won't interfere too much with the actual picture. It's what I do with mine. And the person you drew it for can always get a separate file without the watermarks. I've done it before. :3

And I think this is very cute. ^^

Sorry to hear about the art thieves, really they are such scum. Poopyheads!

This is such a wonderful pic, lines and colour. Lovely! I love orange, yes indeedy. I like how you framed it too, the keys on the tree branches are nice n' interesting. =]

Let's hope the big ass watermarks are not needed...

I love the cloudy background, it looks soft and makes me a bit drowzy :D
I wonder what kind of tea it could be... green tea?

I love all the little detials in the picture... Like all the various markings and feathers. o:

It feels like the details make up the picture without taking away from the overall serene feeling. :)

The shading is really pretty, too. You managed to go through a vast range of shades without making any sudden leaps from one tone to the other... Very cool. :D

Of course, the composition looks great; but you don't need me to tell you that. xDD

Overall very pretty and easy on the eyes. :)
Love the teacup, and the keys hanging from the branches. xDD

I love the nice warm colours of this picture. The orange works really well with the pink of the background :nod:The fact he is carrying tea and having that infuser spoon makes me drool :giggle: (I'm quite a teafreak myself). There are so many details in this picture, you really put some work in it for sure. The keys on the tree look really nice, though it's a riddle for me what they have to do with tea :paranoid:, but still they really add something to the bottom of the picture. The clouds look really nice and puffy as well :aww: Maybe I would have made the eye a bit less shiny, because now the attention (well at least mine) is drawn to the eye first, and only later to the pretty wings.

And, congrats on the new tablet!
