Red Serpent by anqila Red Serpent by anqila
For the incredibly talented *Laitma. Happy 21st! :heart:

I kind of fell in love with Ayra’s design after stalking browsing through her gallery, even if she doesn't have too many drawings of Ayra up. Makes me wonder why more people don't have naga characters--they're so beautiful and dynamic. I don't really know much about her, either, besides what's on her character sheet and her love of SHOPPANG. I hope I got all the colors right—by all means tell me if I didn’t.

(Seriously. Tell me.)

Again, happy birthday~

I think the credit for creating such a distinctive character goes to Laitma, but I'm happy you like my interpretation of her! :)

You don't see many on here.There are more on Elfwood.com,but that's because it is a fantasy site. And they are mostly men.
She looks so pretty and thered really suits her. and the nails,jewelry are such a nice touch. I like her hair too! She's got red hair to match the snake!

I feel like female nagas work so much better than male ones. The transition from human to snake just goes so much smoother with the female form, in my opinion. Could just be me, haha.

Credits for her design go to *Laitma, of course, but I'm glad you like the way I've drawn her!

You got a point there. But some male nagas I saw were pretty darn impressive.
I couldn't see this character on the gallery,but I'll have to look again. She does have some neat things on there.
Heehee you're welcome!

Ayra shows up in some of the large deviations with a whole bunch of characters. I don't think Laitma has posted any pieces with Ayra alone. And yeah, her art is pretty freaking awesome. ^^

HOLY CRAP. HOLY. FRIGGIN CRAP. THIS IS. I MEAN. I JUST. OMG.
This is amazing. I want to crown you the Official Ayra Artist. Because I will never see a more perfect one lmfao.

And hey, your colors are as good a "guess" as anyone's, for serious. xDD

I'm flattered, but I think that title is technically Lai's. :XD:

Out of curiosity (forgive me if I come off as stalkerish/creepy), are you one of Lai's friends from home?

FastPuck Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011   General Artist
Yeah but, she like never draws them so. >w> /shot in the face

Haha sob, I WISH I was one of her friends from home. No, sadly, I am just her Californian not-really-husband-but-totally-her-husband. x'D
and don't worry about coming off stalkerish/creepy, i pretty much am the king of stalker/creep behavior. .w.

Haha this is very nice~ Haven't seen too many of these characters, let alone modest-looking ones with nice smiles.
I think the forehead may be a bit short (though we all know me and human anatomy aren't the best of friends) and also her bracelets appear to be floating quite magically.
Other than that your attention to detail is stunning and I adore the folds on her... shirt-thing? and the lighting and colors are very pleasant ^^

There's a bit of a perspective thing going on with the face, so I think it ought to be okay that the forehead looks shorter than usual. I think. And yeah, when I drew the bracelets I was all, "Gravity? PAH." and ignored its existence. :B

Thanks! :D

The credit goes to you for creating such a gorgeous character! I had such a blast drawing and coloring her (even if I wasn't sure the colors were entirely correct, haha).

I'm so incredibly happy that you like it! Have a wonderful birthday~ :hug:
