A design I made for Flecked for Cupkek’s SS!
Here’s the prompt I was given:
gender - either!
species - a bird (preferably a robin, owl, or corvid); gryphon; monster or hybrid
other - ears!! I love little nubby ears or big fluffy ones! Antlers are also really cool, preferred on the monster if you do it? I would like natural colors and patterns please! As for themes, think nature, hipster, autumn, even Chinese influenced would be awesome! A winter themed character would be cool too haha
I wanted to combine the winter theme with the Chinese influence idea so that I could use a bunch of different sources. I used oriental bay owl for the face, an azure winged magpie for the colors, and a racket-tailed treepie for the tail. The lacey texture is based off of some different Chinese paintings of water and the spikey tail is meant to reflect those cool rooftops. The lanturn was mostly just meant to add some color so I don’t know much about those or anything.
Aaaand that’s it!
