Reference Sheet: Ruka and Pan by Acayth Reference Sheet: Ruka and Pan by Acayth
Please download for a bigger versionc:

[EDIT]
I hav finally put all the critiques together and fixed the relating parts I was not satisfied with. That means:

- Rukas Face ist now fixed.
- Pans Wings are MUCH shorter and they do not look so heavy anymore).
- The feathers which have not coincided with the dorsal wing image have been removed.
Aaaand the biggest change: ~Sezaii corrected all my (rediculousy wrong) grammar (and mostly typo) mistakes. I will never ever reread my texts before uploading at 3 am. again. Not for me, but for SezxD Thank you so much again!<3<3<3

[/EDIT]


I finally kicked that monster sheet out of my W.I.P folder!
I have started this sheet about a month ago and finally finished it now. The sheet shows my Rider couple Pan and Ruka whom I have already drawn sometimes.

Still remember this one?-->
I actually changed the Vorrap design a little, but I think that most of the features are still known to you:)

I apologize for so much text and for aaaaaaaaaaaaaaall the countless grammar mistakes. I was too shy to ask ~Sezaii for correcting all the texts AGAINxD:heart:

Ouh, by the way: Vorrapteria Wyvern are not bipedal! They cannot run more than a few meters on their hind legs. Like ice bears!:B I have shown Pan on his hind legs to show his torso. If you take a closer look at the standalone and compare it to the profile view of him with folded wings, you will notice, that the standalone is more upright, as if he would directly flap his wings after this shot.

I also want to give thanks to ~Sezaii~Simander and *Dae-Thalin who allowed me to send an image of that reference to them now and then and begg for critiques<3
Thanks to you and your questions I have managed it to refine this species over the past 3 years and to make them what they are now!

Enjoy!!!

August belongs to a species called simander, which is copyrighted by ~Simander

this sheet is awesome :P
I like how for once it doesnt have that eye thing where it shows the pupil in high, medium, and low light. I always think that information is useless :P of course it gets bigger in low light silly. But your sheet has just the right information :3

Acayth Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha well, I have drawn these eye shots on older sheets now and then, even if they were really useless, as you said. I think most artists do that just to draw more on the sheet to make it look bigger. I won´t do that anymore though, since I have less time than in my early years here on dA. Thank you! Glad you like this sheet:3

Very late comment is very late D:!
Mir ist grad aufgefallen, dass ich ja auch noch keinen comment hier geschrieben hab, weil ichs immer vor mir hergeschoben hab den ganzen Text zu lesen xD
Das hab ich jetzt nachgeholt und ich muss sagen der Ref ist wirklich sehr informativ und sauber gehalten. Ich finds vor allem klasse wie du ganze drei Charas UND speziesinformationen auf einen ref gequetscht hast <3
August ist natürlich asfwefaf <3
Ich habs dir bestimmt schonmal gesagt, hab ich? Egal nochmal: Ich finds klasse wieviel Arbeit und Gedanken du in deine Spezies und deine Charas tust. Kleine Details wie z.B. dass sie ein gutes Farbensehen haben müssen, da sie ja über Farben kommunizieren machen diese Spezies so richtig glaubwürdig.
Was mir an diesem Ref besonders gut gefällt:
Die Schuppen (so sauber gescaled *-*)
Die Federn beim dorsal-view
Das Feuer
Und der sizechart :3

Wirklich etwas zu bemängeln hab ich jetzt eigentlich nicht außer vllt dass Rukas Gesicht ein wenig....aufgeklebt aussieht dadurch...mh wodurch eigentlich. Irgendwie deutet der Witwenspitz da ne bestimmte Mitte des Kopfes an und das Gesicht sieht aus als hätte man es ein wenig von der Mittelachse aus nach unten rechts geschoben. Vllt. würde es schon helfen, wenn neben ihrem rechten Auge nen bisschen die Delle von der Augenhöhle zu sehen wäre aber was weiß ich, ich hab keinen Skill was Mencshen angeht.
So genug gelabert, mein Dad hat mir grad bonbons gegeben und meine Aufmerksamkeit wird jetzt von denen okkupiert, tut mir leid <3

Ach stimmt, ich hab da sogar die Spezies reingepfiffen...
Erst mal vielen herzichen Dank für den Kommentar, egal ob late oder nicht. Ich freu mich immer, deine Kommentare zu lesen<3
Ich hab Bei der Spezies auch versucht, dass es tatsächlich nciht reingequetscht wirkt, und hab nur oberflächliches Blabla gehaltenxD
Vielen Dank übrigens auch für die Kritik! Ich sehe auch was du meinst und ich glaub ich weiß auch woran der effekt liegt. ich werde zwei Möglichkeiten versuchen, das wieder zu richten und du kannst mal schauen welches den Effekt eher unterdrückt. Ich hab mir eben nochmal den Text durchgelesen und festgestellt, dass da einfch mal arkward viele Fehler drin sind. Ich sollte mir die nach dem Abtippen demnächst besser mal durchlesen, bevor ich die Texte rastere:/ Egal, Sezaii wird die eh korrigieren und sobalt ich ihre Korrektur habe, werde ich mir alle Kritiken zu Herzen nehmen und das nochmal überarbeiten:3 Vielen, VIELEN Dank:heart:

LATE COMMENT IS LATE!

Soorryy XD I have been away lately and Just havent had time to remember to comment on this beautiful ref sheet!!
Mann XD Its soo deliciously BIG! I SHALL EAT NAO!
I do love how you lay out all of your ref sheets, but I think this is probably the best so far! And you managed to fit the sizechart in! And it works really well, it doesnt look like you have crammed it in a corner it doesnt fit in or anything...
I can tell by all of those sketches and what you have been telling me about them how much effort and passion you have put into these species! And now with this as well it really shows what a great artist you really are! and you HAVE improved loads really, I think it just takes another artist to see it! I never think I have improved but other artists are telling me otherwise so ill just believe them XD
I do adore Pan's base colours, the dull reds and browny-creams are very complimenting to each other, and they show up the other lesser colours even better, like the grey/blacks and whites! I think the chosen length of wing was the right idea, it doesnt look too long to me, neither too short :3
i didnt realise the Vorraps had a fire ability! I like the idea that the tone of the fire can vary on the things they eat, it gives them a more individuality. i like how you havent just put ALL the design effort into Pan but also into some of the equipment he wears, like the saddle, I think it looks very fitting for the creature its for, and also very practical, not just a fancy over-designed pretty thing to put on his back XD You know I also like Rucka's arm-weapons! they look really deadly, and not to mention unique too!

All in all I love the whole sheet!! I think perhaps adding the Simander was putting a little bit too much in, although he is kinda sweet as he is so small XD But I still thing the whole thing is very well put together! And what I dont understand is how its so clean and neat XD I zoom in and everything is perfect! If you were to download any of my sheets they are so scrappy, its surprising they look ok from a distance!

Just well done! You really deserve so much more attention on this sheet x-x Its once of the best I have seen for a long time! And definitely one of the most original!

Awwwh maaai god, Sez I love you so much for all the compliments! With every sentence I felt like "there must have been something she wants to critizice, I mean, it CANNOT BE that everything is built out PURE compliments" but AAWH, you´re so....dhaaaaw<3
Thats actually the reason why artists draw. To get at least that kind of a "you did that well bro"- backslap on the shoulder, which gets very rare these days:c
To the fire: I kinda noticed that with all this years dragons have gained so many unnatural powers, that their real, NATURAL power has been drowned. I tried to revive it again with Pan:3
And its really something flattering to hera that I have improved at least in this yearxD. If you want I can send you the original size of Pans standalone to show you that its not as clean as you might thinkXD The original is just tons larger than thatXD
And I still look forward to finally see your vorrap:3 Its an benefit and pleasure to have you as a friend:D
Thank you:heart:

Ohmai! Well, I'm not sure ill ever get around to drawing Jall XD
It just takes me too long to design a character...and I already have like...5 OCs I am re-vamping the anatomy of :/ But we'll see, may be ill get around to it, but it wont be this year now unfortunately D:

And ovc Ill check your typos again XD dont hesitate to ask! Ill try do it over the next weeks, although I'm really busy so you may have to be patient with me :3 thanks ^^

Das ist die übelste Killer-Ref, weißt du das?
Ich hab mir noch nicht alles durchgelesen, also werde ich jetzt einfach mal anfangen so ein bisschen über die einzlenen Abbildungen zu labern xD
Eigentlich sieht alles toll aus, jedes einzelne Panel sieht sehr aufwändig gemalt aus, wobei mir das Feuerspeiende unten mit den Painting-Elementen besonders zusagt und die Dorsal-Ansicht des Flügels gefällt mir aus irgendeinenm Grund immer noch wahnsinnig gut. Und irgendwie hat es mir auch die rechte Hinterfuß-Abbildung angetan, die sieht so Hand-mäßig aus und ich mag Hände :P
Durch die Flat-Colour und das Cell-Shading ist das ganze trotz der vielen Details übersichtlich geblieben und man hat nicht dieses ´dafug welche farbe ist das?´-Gefühl und auch die Panels sind ordentlich angeordnet :)
Das einzige was mir nicht so zusagt ist die Anordnung von Pans Federn bei dem Standalone in der Mitte, im Handbereich scheinen sie mir etwas zu weit rübergezogen, obwohl ich da auch ein kleines Verschulden habe, weil ich es verpeilt habe Redlines zu machen als du mir die Skizze geschickt hast xD (Und Augusts Körper finde ich ein bisschen akward ^_^°)
Aber sonst habe ich an den Zeichnungen nichts auszusetzten, die sind alle supergeil, obwohl ich gerne noch ein Bild mit der Biolumniscence gesehen hätte :P Ich liebe unnötiges Leuchtzeug *_*
Das Design für den Sattel und für Rukas Kleidung finde ich übrigens auch sehr originell, es ist immer beedindruckend zu sehen wie Leute neue Kulturen entwerfen :)

Awh Ich hab grad so Knopfaugen bekommen als ich den Kommi gesehn hab<3<3<3
Vielen Dank, freut mich, endlich mal nen anständigen Kommentar zu sehen, was ziemlich traurig ist, da ich mir wirklich Mühe mit dem Kack gegeben hab:c Du bist mir treu geblieben und dafür liebe ich dich<3 Ich bin auch froh, dass ich das Ding überhaupt fertig bekommen hab, ich wurde immer schneller und hatte Angst plötzlich zu entgleisen, weil ich viel zu hastig gearbeitet hab. Daber ich glaub ich habs doch noch gut hinbekommenxD Und du musst den Text neben dem Flügel beim Standi lesen, da hab ich geschrieben, warum die Federn so angeordnet sind:3 Allerdings hab ich das erst im Nachhinein eingefügt (hoho) aufgrund der peinlichen Erkenntnis, kurz nachdem ich das Standi colouriert habe. Mir ist nämlich erst da aufgefallen, dass ich den Flügel im oberen Bereich komplett mit Federn bedeckt hab, was ich eigentlich gar nicht wollte, aber in all der Abwesenheit nicht merktexD Da hab ich einfach diesen schlauen Text reingequetscht weil ich die ganze arbeit nicht wieder wegradieren wolltexD


Noch einmal vielen herzlichen Dank für das total schöne Komment:3 Das ist meine Belohnung für all die Arbeit:heart:

Ich meinte eigentlich nicht die Tatsache, dass er dort mehr Federn hat als an den anderen Refs, sondern die Art wie sie auf den Flügeln liegen...ich finde du hättest die Wölbung der Oberfläche etwas mehr andeuten sollen und die andere Sache mit dem handbereich mal ich dir mal auf weil ich zu dumm bin das zu erklären xD
