I may have to change this up as the commissioner hasn't OKed the final color yet, but I'm really happy with it, so uploading it for now.

Anyway, this is a commission for :icondamurxac: of his girlfriend's shapeshifting character :iconveyska: (Yes, she's a lady. Yes, birds lack mammarys).
He didn't have an image ref, so I tried to match the written description as best as I could!

Hope you like! (and again, note me for any corrections!)

Very cool. I thought he was flying at first.

Wow, she looks amazing, the tail feathers are fanastic, the atomany is great and I love the colours. Dispite the red-orange of the character and the pink-magenta of the background it doesn't seem to clash. The pose is very fitting for a gijinkaed bird. I can't find anything wrong with this.

Thank you so much :3 This happened to be possibly the longest delayed commission ever (taking a set of 7 when I was busy was a poor decision), so I was very happy to hit the point where I could really draw something to impress the commissioner. I'm glad everyone else seems to liek it too!

Agreed, the tail is awesome! I like that while she is an anthro, looking at it from the head/wings up still makes me think it could be just an attacking bird. The feathers on the back of the legs make me really happy for some reason.

That is gorgeous! I love the tail, reminds me of the prehistoric birds.

My first thought was that's a wonderful archeopteryx, then I noticed in another reply that it is meant to look like one. So very good job there. I love the colouring and pose. Looks ready to take flight. An instant fave.

And I quote, "Prettyshiny!" (Though I've been assured that a more eloquent assessment will be coming, probably via note, at some point.) In the meantime, I think I shall second her assessment.
