FINALLY got this done! I'm SO sorry for how long this took! Even though this took me a while (the shading especially, like always, haha) this was a really fun piece. I had so much fun with Emperor, he's such a beautiful character!

I hope you like this, and again, thank you for entering my contest!

This is amazing! ;0; I love how you do the fur patterns on the chest. How did you learn to do it so well?

Thank you very much! And fur has always been kind of tricky XD To be honest, it's mostly guess work, and reference of course :)

You're welcome! Fur's always been the worst for me. XD
I guess I probably just use too thick a brush. What size do you normally use?

Fur sure is a pain XD
But for my fur lines, I mostly use a size 9px brush; but I also work on a 45x30 inch canvas :P

:iconiloveitmoreplz: This is so beautiful and amazing and I love everything about it. He's just drawn so accurately-- all of the little details are there. I love the look of the fur with the random chunks sticking out, and the way the nose and scar are done, and the eyes and that shading, asadfsdg. It's awesome seeing him in such a detailed, finished piece. Not to mention I love the color scheme =] Thank you so much~ Sorry for the late comment, by the way. It's definitely not out of lack of satisfaction with this, lol. Such an amazing picture~ :la:

Also I printed it and framed it and hung it on my wall. = D

Thank you very much! I'm very glad you like how it turned out :) He's such a b eautiful chaarcter, I sure had a great time drawing him :) I had to play around with his fur a bit, to get that ragged look to his fur ;D Ahh I just love him <3 All of your character designs are just gorgeous!

And aww really?? That's so awesome :'D Thank you! <3

I watched the video of this, and I just love your shading! I know the coloring is supposed to be messy, but I think you could have spent some more time on it, because in some areas it has trouble corresponding with the shading, mostly with the splotches of grey on the neck. But really, nice job!

Thank you! And I know the colouring is a little messy, the thing is the reference I was given was quite sketchy with splotchy colouring/markings. I just tried to make the markings look like they did on the reference, but I know what you mean, they don't really blend well with the shading. I'll keep this in mind next time, thank you! :)
