I guess I don't have to say how overwhelmed I am from all the responses to Mek. And I don't really know how to say thanks, except for this [link]
I started answering the first hundred or so comments, but they kept coming, so I decided to be more selective, but they still kept piling up, so I think this is a saner way to answer some of the questions I received.
- Mek, as a demon, is associated with fire and lightning, so that's what the blue streak is about. I had to sneak that in somewhere.
- I had to fight the urge of making her pale because she is described as being tan/bronze. You can see what happened in the progress shots
- I didn't use any photographic references for her, but definitely for the peacock feather. Her anatomy is referenced off of me using a mirror.
- Yes, her hand and torso do seem tilted a bit, but who's gonna look lol. Seriously though, it's nick-picking to me, but I'll definitely pay more attention to it next time.
- I'm sorry, I can't take on anymore commissions, for those who are wondering.
- Finally, I will do a tutorial soon! It's a bit overdue imo:]
