-- Loistava Myrsky Reference Sheet -- by SinisterEternity -- Loistava Myrsky Reference Sheet -- by SinisterEternity
Warning, big file ahead!

This...I have College to thank for this! We are currently on a massive project where we needed to pick or design a character, which we will then animate into live footage of our choosing
I mean, I'm probably going to die, but anyway! We had to make a reference sheet for our character, so here it is!
A reference sheet for Loistava, the lightning King, in Windsong


There are most likely a hell lot of typos/Grammar errors left but I honestly cannot be bothered looking through this whole text again, I need a break, seriously :XD:
I will have to fix them eventually, if they are there... :I
Uh...honestly I'm way beyond my dinner time, I better get cooking!

Enjoy :heart:

Awesome :eager: I love this badass king. Such a cool design as well, I like the black and turquoise combination. The little electric charges look neat as well. Indeed, he's a majestic and dangerous beast. His kind are going to be a really hassle for Jayden and Kovaa for sure. 
Animating him will be difficult, I wish you all the best for that project. I'm sure it will look damn epic in the end. :)

His design was such random though! Like most of my characters that is...:XD:
Just like "oh yeah, mhm...yeah that looks nice! DONE" :lmao:

I can't wait to get started :'D
If I succeed, I'll definitely post it on here!
Thanks :la:

The sheer wing-size is amazing! all dragons should have a huge wing-span! :D

How do his wings function, anatomy-wise? I'm mostly about the wing arm, I see a thumb and one long finger, which becomes split into 4 fingers (???) Is he a mutant of sorts? Because your verse dragons seem to have rather average wing arms, without split fingers :3c I'd give him more muscle on wing arms as he is a flying type and sure must be doing flying workouts, look at his bishi body ;;

Those are wings referenced from the movie Reign of Fire, they just looked really cool back when I watched the movie ages ago, so I just had to :XD:

Don't watch until the end if you care about big spoilers though, but this is how it looks like in motion (which, admittedly, is all that matters to me-- that it looks nice, "believeable" while in motion) <3

Edit: Skysealer drew it at some point, for somebody else's character-- she cares a little more than I do about details and so on, so you may see here: Rayeir Reference Sheet
instead :'D

You guys sure love gigantic refs, which load ages due to the very slow Net on my work ;; I see what she did, ye, her wing arm is more muscular than yours, just as I said, make it more bishi, good flyers have strong wings :3c The character on the ref she did is a pure flyer, so there are a ton of fin-like things than connect with the wing, forming a giant net to be like a giant flapping kite, hehe, quite limited in the movement though. Loistava could use some fancy fins on somewhere near the tail's middle to give it a bit of air support, or past-tail beginning fins to give him a fancy tail/membrane connection, just a thought, really

:iconsinistereternity:
I guess the thing is that I never really care too much about anatomy in such detailed way for my dragons, in general :XD:
Little edit was made, following this, though, so thank you! :>
As far as air support goes and the like, that is
I appreciate the critique though, it is to be expected after all, so don't worry about me taking it wrong c':
I care to some extent, but not too badly, I'm more of a "stick to what look I prefer" than "make sure it works realistically" kind of person
I think this is a bit of an unpopular opinion nowadays, but oh, it doesn't matter too much ^^;
I appreciate though, the work people put in attempting to make things work in a realistic way

It was merely a suggestion, you decide whether to take it or not, of course :3 Neither am I the realistic way addict, I'm more like "it's ok as long as it moves and doesn't break (leg/neck/tail/etc)", that is all, most often that's it plus some visual aesthetics. Nothing's wrong with that c:

Well, I changed the uh...arm-muscle-thingy-part a little :lmao:
I mean, I looked at the previous one, and it reminded me of this, instantly: New Skimmer ID
Can you hear my soul screaming? Because it is! Back when I drew this, uh...yeah :XD:

Like in Windsong, most Ascended/Evolved dragon end up with the type of wing portrayed in this ref sheet
A lot of people would say it's a total flaw for an "evolution", but I'm just like : "Idc, I just find it looks cool" :shrug: :'D

RusCSI Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Totally not these sticks, aye ;D 

Well, this wing type extends the wingspan, so they can soar for like... forever, which is a good thing for 'em actually.

I like in particular that he is called LOISTAVA myrsky, since he's electric dragon,loistava also sort of means shining. Other word for great could be mahtava but it has nothing to do with light/electricity so Loistava is much better one. It's VERY fitting <3 :3

Also you're welcome <3

:iconsinistereternity:
SinisterEternity Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2016
Loistava also sounds much cooler/more awesome, well, when reading it out loud that is, just the "Loi" alone I like, but with the rest it's even better :heart:
I can't get enough of these amazing sounds from Finnish language, seriously! :faint:

:iconheichukar:
Heichukar Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2016   Digital Artist
I agree, it's much more soundy :>

I'm not entirely sure how do you pronounce the words now tho, because in finnish letters arent prononunced like in english : D  but eitherway, it's still cool x)

It makes me so happy that you like the finnish language, im so impressed xD no one ever knows anything about this country that "doesnt even exist" :,Ddd

I make sure to research a little about pronounciation before anything, especially if I wanna speak properly in a language so cool :'D

And sure thing, I would love to go to Finland one day...It just looks so cool, ... literally, kind of! :XD:
