Desert Warmth by squeedgemonster Desert Warmth by squeedgemonster
Commission for Sovy, of his coyote-dragon hybrid.

Not much to say 'cept I love desert scenery, oh my god. Also did the background a bit differently than normal, went with something more graphic than painterly, like I was doing with the last batch of commissions.

Also, hi, I think halftone is the best thing ever.

This is a beautiful color scheme - not the usual reds and orange but so very desert-y. I can almost feel the cool, dry air. Great job!

First, make a grey-scale gradient. Then, go to Filters > Pixelate > Color Halftone then set the size, play with the dot angles, and apply. Make a new layer above the halftone and set as a clipping mask, and fill it with a color (play with hue/saturation until it looks okay), set it to "screen" and merge the two. Then set the merged layer to multiply, and voila.

Um, it's nice and all. I love the work you did on the color, but that character isn't Sovy's. In fact, it bares an uncanny resemblance to GatorFox, (an old deviant artist who can still be found on google images and a little of her work on furaffinity.)

In fact, hands down right to the character coloring, I thought it was GatorFox except skinny and male.

they're totally different and just share common marking traits. "x thing but skinny and male", even, when the design is so simple, is completely different.

never speak on behalf of other creators (in this case, Muzz) - it makes everybody look bad. if you feel like there is a problem, talk to the person who you feel may be victimized. don't have it out with the person paid to draw it.

:iconsqueedgemonster:
squeedgemonster Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
This should really be taken up with the owner of the character, not the artist who was paid to draw said character, but, okay.

Muzz/gatorfox recently updated their design, so most of the resemblance these two characters shared previously is gone now, aside from the combination of reptilian and canine features, which --without meaning disrespect to either Sovy or Muzz-- is a fairly 'generic' design that could easily be thought up without knowledge of either character. Even the old design(nsfw) looked notably different. The "fuzzy dragon" look has been done by a lot of people, minor similarities does not character theft make.

So there you go. If you can't tell I really loathe CHARACTER THEFT~!!! arguments when it comes to fairly common designs. Now, if Muzz ACTUALLY has a problem with this character? That's her beef with Sovy, not mine, not yours. I'm not trying to be mean, but this kind of comment is really irritating, immature, and highly unappreciated.

I'm pretty sure saying "that character isn't Sovy's" is an accusation...? Either way, maybe think a little bit before you say such things?

I just want to apologise for EsmilaMercy's comments. I'm sure they had my best interest at heart, but went about it the wrong way. I have no issues with this characters design or the art itself :3

No need to apologize on behalf of someone else, haha. I was... pretty certain this wouldn't have bothered you, especially after the snazzy design overhaul you did recently.

Yeah, I get that from time to time. Someone goes and harasses some other user on my behalf, crying "ART THEFT," and then I see and am like "uhhh, nooo?" haha. SILLY INTERNET.

I believe the character isn't. As said, my impression is that it's GatorFox's, though the color is well done and creates a certain time of day.

Just to reinforce my email reply to you. This character is not mine, it is Sovy's, and this character looks nothing like my character Eddie. I appreciated the email but I did not expect to see comments on the actual art from you, please do not speak on other people's behalves in the future unless you have their permission to do so. Thanks.

The lineart bears a certain resemblance to some of his later work (notably that in Titan A.E.), and the halftone colors are reminiscent of his coloring style as well.
