Reward

Since you've been nice and helped me with judging the poem just below here (do continue elaborating upon it), I'll give you another picture. Heh, some people have seen most of these drawings, but this will give you the chance to critisize them outside of the reach of my kittyclaws. Anyway, this one no one have seen. It's my first sketch of Shemhazai, really quickly made, but I like the feeling, and the necklaces. Some will notice his name is missing a "h", and I'm still not sure if I want to have it there. Semhazai/Shemhazai... it's a big difference, but I don't know which one's better.

BTW, what are the other animals in the Lynx-family except the lynx itself? Cuz other cats are called feli-something, right?

I like Shemhazai better..
It's a nice drawing either way, though. Can't really go wrong with winged people. Or, well, you can, come to think of it.. But you didn't :)

Three kinds of lynx and the bobcat.

Also, sorry for being a triviageek, but does your Shemhazai have anything to do with the apocryphal Azazel/Shemhazai team?

Riklurt said...

Dur.

I was going to add something about the drawing itself, but then I forgot what and got stuck reading about the name. I really like that name.

It's got pretty colours, though - but doesn't his nose look a little funny in the coloured version? Or?

Whoa! Det där var verkligen inte vad jag föreställt mig. =D Har han verkligen en sån attityd? Jag har nog missat nåt.... ^^

Vingar är svårt att rita tycker jag. Inte har jag prövat att rita några från den vinkeln heller, men är de inte lite för rundade upptill?

Posen är skitsnygg! Gillar armbanden också. -stövlar och långdräkt var en rolig kombination ^^ (rolig på ett... öh, possitivt sätt)-

Semhazai passar din bild av honom. Estetiskt tycker jag nog det andra är bättre.

Lynxes are part of the same family and subfamily as other wild-cats and even domestic cats, they are just their own genus. Three types of lynxes and also bobcats belong to that genus. Though some think that they should be in the same genus as common wildcats. [Wikipedia]

@ Rik: Haha, I knew you'd know who they are! I don't know what to say to your question considering the people who read the story also read this, but on the other hand, people like you who already know must also be able to read the story and like it so... uh, right now he's hanging out with Akibeel and Ezequiel from the Watchers, does that answer it well enough?

And yeah, when you say it, I think I forgot to shade his face properly... but this is just a "sketch" so.

@Madde: Shemhazai has only just begun his journey in the story, and has been pushed around a bit, so he's not quite himself. (There is a reason he was picked for the Watchers, y'know) You'll see. Damn, I'm gonna start writing again soon, promise.

There's a million ways to draw wings, I chose the softer way here because it's angel wings. Look at bird wings in an encyclopedia, it helps a lot to know where the muscles are and the feathers stick to the bone.

@Kristin: Thanks! But they should keep them their own genus, cuz "Lynx Lynx" must be one of the coolest latin names ever!

Felidae Felinae Lynx Lynx

Kristin said...

Bobcats are called "Lynx rufus"

Iceye said...

zomg ^^ I need to learn that one. Must be one of the most beautiful sequences of words in the world.

Felidae Felinae Lynx Lynx... *bounces with unexplicable happehness* Okay, so I'm a little up and zany today. =P

Lynx Rufus... that's red, right? Are all bobcats red?

Kristin said...

Redish brown

Sara said...

OMG IT'S LOGAN'S NECKLACE!!! <3

Well anyway, it's nice. I like the wings. But seriously, where does he buy his boots? They're reeally big... =P *resisting temptation of quoting Notting Hill*

Kristin said...

hahaha :D

Iceye said...

Sara, I didn't get one thing of what you just said.

Sara said...

Well Kristin seemed to understand perfectly :P. I will still not quote Notting Hill. It's too dirty to say for a future priest ^_~. But you have to admit that he has very big boots.

The necklace I can explain though. Logan in Veronica Mars wears a necklace like that all the time. He's so gorgeous *daydreaming*
