AER Cameo: Beard

posted on: Wednesday, 28 April 2021 @ 9:06pm in

That was literally what @holoz0r asked for. I’m terrible at facial hair so…

I made a bearded dragon x_x

I think it evolved the crazy tail for prey trapping purposes. Also tried out using the tilted pencil brush as @veryspider apparently liked using it quite a lot. I can kind of see why but unlike some people I can’t draw.

I gave the bearded dragon to cameo holo who is a dropbear (casual observer won’t be able to tell unless he shows his teeth or they annoy him) with a beard. The bearded dragon makes the beard look longer because it likes looping around his neck.

I did want to make cameo holo “clean shaven” and have the bearded dragon provide the beard but couldn’t quite get that to work XD

Did I mention I’m terrible at facial hair? x_x and please excuse my inability to draw cameras.

Also tried out a different colouring technique to fake radiosity, kind of worked out okayish but was the opposite of quick.

I remembered at some point while colouring that this base model’s legs were too long especially for this character who is supposed to be a bit more on the shorter more solid side (all the better for ramming you into the ground if you make him mad my dear).
