BattleTech Jade Falcon by KatWylder BattleTech Jade Falcon by KatWylder
I mentioned before that I've been working with "Insane Kangaroo" of CamoSpecs on some 2D art and decals. This drawing is the first commission I did for him, and shows the "totem animal" of Clan Jade Falcon from the BattleTech games.

In existing artwork, the jade falcon is always depicted as pure, bright green. I decided to tone the shade down a bit to a more natural green. I also added some aspects of hierofalcon coloration, like the gorgeous lanner, to make it a little more realistic.

These commissions have been a fun challenge of adding realism to fanciful creatures, while still keeping the "spirit" of the original designs. And "Insane Kangaroo" has been great to work with, and given me a lot of free reign on artistic interpretation.

You can see the smoke jaguar here.


Critique is discouraged, since this is a finished commission, and I will not be changing it.

Cool. I like the details. It's got a cool fictional-creature vibe going for it. :D
