.:gift:. Jade Spirit by DragonGirl787 .:gift:. Jade Spirit by DragonGirl787
Is it actually alright to say I'm pretty damn happy with this?? xD
I managed to increase my work speed a lot in this piece, it only took me about 5 hours!! :iconlazyweepplz:

anyways.....
This is a birthday gift for the lovely and talented :iconjadethemobian:
I wanted to get this finished for her b-day before I went to London tomorrow....so I just powered through it!! xD

This is; heavily stylised in my style, her beautiful new character Jade, a little blue birdie :3
(I think she may also be a sona or something but I'm not quite sure ;-; )
she did me such a lovely gift last year and shes such an awesome person i felt I needed to repay her :')
I hope you don't think I took too many liberties with making her more human/anthropomorphic like and such......and the fact I put in massive glowing jade spirit wings.... xD

But shes a lovely character and I really enjoyed just going for it on this piece, especially with the lighting effects and practising my anatomy and pose :3

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! :D :la: :iconkermityayplz:

I referred to the incredibly insightful and helpful pose studies of :iconkate-fox: here: [link]
It really helped me in challenging my usually static designs and gave me an opportunity to try a different anatomical approach. :)

And the texture used is by :icontrishamonsterr-stock: here: [link]
