Character Art – Andrakidus

Hey there folks!  We’re introducing new artwork for a character we haven’t had done up yet today, and from a new artist collaboration to boot!  For the character Andrakidus, who we introduced way back in As Darkness Falls, we knew we needed someone who could capture the look of dragons fairly well.  When I was combing through DeviantArt, I found x-Celebril-x, who did an amazing job with them, and humanoid characters to boot.  It seemed like a perfect setup for her, and boy did she deliver!

We started off with some poses.  Going forward, Andrakidus’s character is going to change up a bit in that he’s supposed to almost feel like a teacher of sorts, so we wanted to get that across the right way.  We ended up really liking poses 1 and 4 with that in mind.

The picture ended up looking almost like a faculty portrait you’d see in a university.  We absolutely loved that, so we pushed x-Celebril-x to keep up the great work.  She delivered a fantastic final version of the character.

Sometimes you get incredibly lucky when you find an artist.  That’s the way I feel with this collaboration.  This was the perfect fit, and x-Celebril-x completely aced this first collaboration.  You can be certain that we’ll be using her for more commissions in the future.  Hope you liked this first look at our dracosage!
