Trade with :star::iconkatusia::star:

Another Sunday, another trade! :la: I enjoyed drawing this one - it was fun to draw a desert scape for a change. :D I hope this is something similar to what you asked for, Kat! It was good to practice rocks, and your beautiful Nila was a pleasure to draw and colour. Hope you like it! :love: Thank you for such an awesome trade. :handshake:

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

This is so lovely! The wings look great, and so does that beautiful background. One thing I noticed though is that her eye looks like it's a bit too low on her face...although it is hard to tell, maybe it's just me.

Oh wow! She’s so gorgeous! The anatomy is very well drawn and I love how you put just enough emphasis on muscle structure without going overboard.

Her wings are just so fluffy and gentle-looking. You really can see the texture in them. So soft. :aww:

The desert setting is magnificent and lovely. The faint blue sky background gives the hint that it’s almost morning.

A calming effect to this piece.

I wonder though, why does she seemed tied with rope…and what is she doing out in the desert? Not knowing the answers though seems to make this piece all the more mysterious.

Outstanding. :w00t:

Wow, Bori! This is really amazing!! I would go on about how awesome the horse is, but I'd just be repeating everything I always say :XD: Although, the wings are pretty great!!

The background though, it's so detailed!! The sand mounds to the right are my fav! I've been sitting here trying to think of how to explain what I like, but I just can't put it in words :lmao: The clouds are really good too!! :boogie: And I love her tail :aww:
