Great to hear from you again!

The creature is awesome-looking, and your Futurama figures are as good as always. My only complaint is that Fry's nose looks pretty odd in profile in the first picture. (Yeah, it's oddly shaped on the show, but it still feels slightly off.) Other than that, great stuff.

Are you planning to use Blackwing in a story, or more pictures or something?

Thought you might like this little idea.

Over on DA land I'm dong a commission which includes the critter. I was asked to draw Leela and Fry with an OC, Blackwing.

I like the posing, it's long and low and threatening. But I'm having trouble with the rear hips, they look, well, just wrong. Another detail is Blackwing has a mane and tufts of hair on her muzzle. My logic bone disagrees but :doh: it's not my design so I'll work with it.

Blackwing looks very cute in the latest pic you posted. Perhaps his face isn't very Groening-like, but that's kind of a moot point. And the dialogue made me laugh.

Very well-drawn Leela and Fry. Leela looks particularly on-model in the last picture.

Done! Oh at last, it's finished. This took for-ev-er.

80 colors on a poor over-worked 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper. I could talk for a week about this, but I won't. Curious what you think of it.

That's some really great colouring. A joy to look at; I think it'd make a great wallpaper.

Blackwing looks good (though I can't help but notice that he she's not actually black) and Leela and Nibbler look great too. I like Leela holding out the meat for Blackwing, and you've done a good job showing Nibbler's feelings. I feel like you've made the shading on Fry's face a bit too dark, though. Other than that, great work.

EDIT: Fixed Blackwing's gender.

Thanks, glad to hear from you again.

Doing Blackwing was really interesting. She (not a he, I made the same mistake.) is the OC of my comission-ee. I did take a few liberties with her, but there were also some things I couldn't change. Hence no overbite. She was described as large as a draft horse and the wings are functional. She can fly, which means a huge wingspan. Her color is a muted grey. But to my mind that's really boring so I changed that a bit.

The placement of the drumstick was a fortunate accident. Originally the paper was portrait, and when I turned it to landscape the stick was directly in Blackwings face. That's when the drawing just clicked. Did you notice that her posture suggests that Nibbler is her target, but she was distracted by the drumstick? Also over on DA land there was some discussion of who would win in a Blackwing vs Nibbler scuffle?

BTW, since this was a commission, I mailed the original and all the sketches to the commission-ee. She is very happy.

Our first Disenchantment fanart! *opens champaggen bottle*

I'm not that familiar with the characters yet, but this looks good. Bean's angry expression is hilarious, and both she and Elfo are very well drawn (a bit different from the show's designs, but using your own style isn't a bad thing). Maybe her right foot is a little bit lumpy, and her left arm (closest to us) looks a bit thin compared to the rest of her build. Nice background too, nothing too spectacular, but a nice fantasy dungeon.

Yay! It's nice to be first at something.

I watched the entire season, and the last couple of episodes took a very unexpected turn. (No spoilers, don't worry...)

Good picture! Not knowing the context just makes it even more interesting for me. The characters look great (well, the guy to the left of Bean looks a bit weird, but that might be what his character design is like on the show). I particularly like Bean, the Queen, and the guy furthest to the left.

Huh, thought I'd reviewed this earlier. Sorry about that.

Really good colouring and shading, especially on Bean's leggings and the rock-formation to the right (which looks almost photorealistic). I feel that sometimes your characters' expressions are a bit over-the-top when they're showing strong emotion, but it works well on Bean here. I like Luci with the bottle, which is another example of your good colouring. Only downside I have is that the background is a bit busy and some of it is hard to figure out. That's minor, though. Very good picture!
