Saida by Phoenix-Flyer Saida by Phoenix-Flyer
Happy New Year!

My submission rate for drawings is appalling, though with a new year I hope to change that!
Any of you guys ever used SAI? Well, damn you Spiney for introducing it to me! I can't get the hang of colouring or anything like that in it, but I really lurve linearting with it and I seem to be much better at sketching in there too. I will either figure out a balance or I will get the hang of it and use it exclusively (...eventually). Either way.

Saida herself has gone through a few little changes. I was leaning toward lazy when I first designed her and she didn't originally have feathered wings. She certainly does now, simply because I like the way feathered wings look.
I am in love with those eyes. I am very proud of those eyes...

Saida belongs to me, Phoenix-Flyer

She's beautiful, love the eyes and wings.

Sometimes I miss my dragons ... they're mostly just nostalgia now. :(

Cheers, m'dears!

Yeah, I was just thinking that I haven't seen anything dragon-related from you in ages. But, our interests go in cycles, I suppose (I know mine do). Maybe one day you may decide to re-imagine them? Who knows.

I suppose. Sometimes I do miss our RPing days though. They were fun. They're like nostalgia now.

Indeed. I haven't even tried RPing since then; I never had the time, nor the people I would be willing to do it with.

I don't really do much of anything around my work hours besides play World of Warcraft and League of Legends. They are both the kind of games that suck you in and, before you know it, hours have passed. XD Because of that, I don't tend to draw or write very much either... :(

Maybe we could arrange something sometime? Might be fun.

I'm the same with Skyrim and Pokemon Y. ^^; It's kind of become my comfort zone to distract me from the fact that I'm not doing ANYTHING productive at the moment. =P

I know the feeling. Am on holiday from work for two weeks and I have done nothing constructive in that time so far. XD

I would be up for some RPing one day though. You know where to find me if you find the time to. ;P

Sai's fun to work with :D I only just started using it and it's amazing. Anywho, this looks awesome, I love the shading on this :D

It is, though its taking some time to get used to.

I really struggle with finding the patience to follow through on shading, so thanks! ;D

I only used the Lite version, but it was pretty good. Very simple and basic, but it got the job done :D

Has your style changed or soemthing cuz holy shit.

Also yes that eye is awesome. Did you like...take art wheaties or something on them.

Feathered wings are awesome as well. Didn't you hate doing those, tho? Regardless, looks amaze :D

Wow, you were quick.

I have no idea. It just... came out? I wish there were art wheaties though. I'd be eating them daily, if there were. :P Definitely isn't me who dislikes drawing feathered wings; I'm just generally too lazy to do them! XD

I generally forget about dA completely until I'm logging off and closing all of my tabs.

Eh, even if I ever "left" dA, I would stay just to look at the art people are posting. ;P

Did you change your avatar to this pic and back or is DA screwing with me

Aha. Yeah I've been trying to be more active here over the past few weeks.

So you'd be the lurker of the night? A Dark Lurker? ;D
