Sythe of flame by DaneeCastillo Sythe of flame by DaneeCastillo
This is a commission for :iconmorrokko:. It took me a month to finish and it's a fun story too.

So I started on this pic and I kept getting frustrated because I couldn't get the girls pose right. So the first sketch I ended up killing and turning into a pretty rainbow crayon drawing that says "angry" on it.

I took a break for a couple of days and then asked my WONDERFUL dad for help. He posed for me and this is what I got. No he's not skinny like a woman, he just gave me an idea and a refence for hands. The wolf I had fun with because it was many different sizes until I got the one I liked .. then I had to draw the wings ... AHHH GOD the wings. Well lets just say that I finally got them the way I like and to make it fit on the page.

Coloring is another story. Coloring this picture took me 5 days straight to work on. You can even ask :icondrugie:, Drugie watch my struggle.

So here is it. One month of work and love.

You're so worth it MorRokko.

Absa-fucking-MAZING. I can't say anything bad about this one. I love it. Well.. maybe a background. Background are always nice, but against the white, still awesome.

I might add a background later but the commission wasn't requesting a background.

Wow, the coloring is really well done as usual...but I do have an issue with how she's holding the weapon...The rest of it looks really cool, though. I love the wolf.

lol It looks good if you don't know anything about weapons or disarming them, so I doubt a lot of people would even notice. Just don't point it out to a bunch of martial artists - they'd have a problem lol. The only real problem is the hands - the stance itself is fine, great, as far as I can tell.

If you ever need some weapon stances/poses, I do have a bo staff and other weapons - I might be able to help out with things like this too, for future reference.
