Imperiya Dragon Ref by IrisDesert Imperiya Dragon Ref by IrisDesert
Oh gosh, look! It's a ref! I actually managed to finish one! I really suck at doing these.

So this has literally been sitting around for 2 years or so, and I finally decided to fix it up and finish it while I was at the other house. I haven't really touched Imperiya in a while, so it's nice to be getting back to her for a bit.

---

This is a ref of Imperiya's dragon form. I was going to add in her humanoid form, but I don't really have the time to draw that up at the moment, so I may add it later. There's also a good chunk of info missing, but at least finally I have something up on her. I haven't touched on her story in a long while, so there is still a ton of stuff I have to figure out. I did want to add more to her history, about her growing up, but there wasn't any room left ||D

The one thing I will say is that she rarely ever takes this form. She doesn't even know how to at first, and continues to struggle with it throughout her story.

I'm so tired now, I don't feel like writing anymore. I'll prolly update this later.

Please enjoy my one and only rainbow bab, and all her colorful goodness!

Haha, thank you! I'm glad you like her!

Yeah, I'd be open to roleplay with her. I just want to note that I'll most likely
be slow to reply since I'm still somewhat busy with things.

Imperiya is such a beautiful, exotic and colorful creature, I'm in love her design, and her story has so much potential! The fact that she was brought up in a desert city really fits well with her overall design. Should show us who 'Neda' is :D Great work again!

IrisDesert Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014  Student General Artist
Thank you! Actually there is a lot more to her story, but I left it there mostly cause I
didn't have enough space for more ||D
Yeah, the desert city was actually a newer concept for her story, but I think it works
well. I haven't really designed Neda yet, but I will get to that eventually!

Lol, I hate not having enough space, and then always trying to make more room always seems to ruin everything else in the picture sometimes. 

But I can't wait till then c:

I realise I don't know any of the story you're building (or have build) but they sound really interesting. I always struggled with finding a "scientific" way to explain why a dragon could turn human/a human could turn into a human. This explaination is really good and interesting.
For the drawings themself, as always, you painting style is just great. I wonder if the darker part or her body, the thigh and the tail are darker because of the color or the lack of light.  And she does have any claws on her back feet?
For the rest, I love her anatomy.  The wings are just amazing, that blue here is just perfect!

IrisDesert Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Student General Artist
Ahh yeah, I actually do have more on her story, but I wanted to condense the ref
down as much as possible, so I'd have less to write ||D
The explanation up there is really vague, but I do have more of a description of it
in my mind! For the colors they just fade darker in that part. As for the back feet
I'm still deciding whether to leave them clawless or retractable.

Thank you so much <3
