Cyrakhis refsheet by rah-bop Cyrakhis refsheet by rah-bop
Oooh I had fun with this commission. I like this color. The character belongs to and was created by ~Cyrakhis, I only drew it.

Ohh he's gorgeous!
or she. It's difficult with mystical reptiles sometimes...
I want one I want one!
But those spines would make a saddle kinda difficult... :/ oh well.
you could still raise one from the egg and train it and pet it and feed it treats and stuff, right? Do they like apples? Or are they more a handful-of-beef kind of eater? It says omnivorous but that's a pretty broad spectrum. Probably not rough veggie matter like grass unless they've got a special stomach, doesn't look like they do much grinding with those molar teeth...

Beautiful colors and design.

Just wanted to point this out, but this character looks awefully like a very prominent artists character. Her name was ahnkanna or something around those lines. Couldn't seem to find her at the moment. But that dragon character is almost exact.

Just a thought.

Hi. Thanks for the heads-up. I'm pretty sure you're referring to *ahkahna, but the only thing this character has in common with hers is possibly that they're both gold. Oh, and the horns are black. Also, this reference sheet was drawn as a commission. The character was created by, and belongs to, ~Cyrakhis and I had nothing to do with how it looks. I just drew it. Whether it does or does not look like someone else's character isn't really my business. ^^;

Anyway, thanks for pointing it out. I think that it's a good policy to call out artists when you think they're doing something shifty, so keep it up. :thumbsup:

Heh, thanks for not taking it the wrong way. I wish she had some of her old artwork of her character up, it was almost the same in coloring, horns, and such. But oh well.

Awesome job the the ref. sheet though. :D

Hmm, late comment is late, I know, but simple way to tell them apart: Cyr is coloured kinda like a banana (dark muzzle, yellow body X3), and Ahk isn’t; well, not currently, as far as I saw, anyway.

I've been around JUST as long as Ahk has. She knows of me and i know of her, and we have for years =P And this is not merely a character to me. It's a spiritual representation of myself. There's nothing at all 'wrong' with it XP Rah did an outstanding job capturing it.

Maybe sort of random, but I love how you've added highlighting sort of within the shadows. I've almost never seen anyone else do that, but it looks so darn good, and adds a good feel of 3-D-ness to the picture.
