An Unnatural Union

Where cats and raptors live as one.
Also, the art of Kelly Gamache.

I was having some extreme trouble with my Darkling portrait. Probably because I didn’t plan it at all like an idiot. 
So I decided to sketch the Darkling fancast model to give myself some people practice again. I haven’t drawn from life/reference in ages and I really need to get back to that, I’m a bit rusty.
Drawn 100% from photo reference…of course I picked the most difficult pose I could find.

The Eastern diamondback rattlesnake (Crotalus adamanteus) has the longest fangs of any pit viper, those large holes the gateway for venom delivery. Like most venomous snakes the rattlers get an undeservedly bad rap from humans, but we owe a lot to them for keeping rodent and pest populations in check.

I’m going to attempt to make some progress on the Darkling for a bit.

I might get frustrated and switch to a pegasus though we’ll see.

I think I’m actually making progress. Stop the presses. Everybody remain calm.

I’m Selling an original! Something that only happens once in a blue moon being as I rarely (never) finish traditional work. 

Anyway, this painting has been with me for a while and I recently added the finishing touches. I love this thing and it pains me deeply to sell it, hence why anyone crazy enough to buy it might need to consider selling a kidney to fund it.
