Siha by DJ88 Siha by DJ88
And the second commission for :iconkohu-arts: .
Here's the first one;

I am on a roll! WHOO!!!

This was fun to do as well, it's not often I draw up Hyenas, let alone finish a drawing of them. They're adorable in their own way.

This was also a bit of a challenge, seeing as she draws Siha in the TLK style, and wanted me to draw her up in my personal style. The biggest challenge on this part was coming up with a color scheme. I had mixed colors of the reference she gave me of Siha with a drawing I have done of a hyena a long while ago.
It worked out fairly well, but now you kinda cannot tell, because I put the whole image through some color filters and contrast settings. SOOOO.....Some of the coloration was a bit lost. I went for some more dramatic warmer colors, to give it a mood.... But I liked the outcome and, yeah. I hope you like it to.

This was sketched on paper, scanned, outlined/colored/shaded in Paint Tool Sai with the aid of a tablet, and finished in Photoshop.

Again thank you soo much for commissioning me Kohu :hug:

I hope you enjoy your pictures 8)

Oh man, Siha looks pissed, I LOVE her expression in this, especially her eyes and that snarl. I wish I could do less 'cute' characters, she looks awesome as a villain here in your style. xD Perfect mix of angry and rather terrifying. I also love the color tweaks you did, she looks very natural, and the shading came out awesome. ;3 Thank you so much again for this!

Lol I used to have to force myself to draw cute things when I was younger, then all I ever did draw (or atleast upload) were cute things. I got sick of it and had to get back to more gnarly looking beasties.

I am very glad you like it :hug:
And thank you for commissioning me! :D

This is simply wonderful! The expression is very well drawn; one can clearly see you were going for an aggressive look, and you nailed it. :clap:
