I colored it in one day!! And it only took me about 2 - 2 1/2 hours!! (Was busy)
I experimented a little bit with blending the shadowing and lighting. I also added a lot more detail to the eyes. I'm very proud with how this came out.
I think I will be coloring more characters now, but without background. (Save those for more special pics. Plus, it's faster) If the background is white, that I'll fix it tomorrow.
The description below is the same as the sketch.
FANALLY!!! I managed to draw a Snowfoot! And, not just any Snowfoot, but Aaron!!
I've had an artist block with him for over a year!! (Heheheh, he looks so different now...)
The Snowfoot tribe lives high up near the peaks of the mountain range. The only ones higher than them are there neighbors, the Daggertails. (Whom they must constantly keep vigilance) It also happens, that the Daggertail live in the mountain peaks over looking there settlement. The Daggertail are constantly attacking in an attempt to carry some back to their caves, where they devour them.
The Snowfoot aren't helpless. They are masters of ice magic. Snowfoot are most noted for their ice swords, which they flash freeze. No two swords are alike. As soon as they can stand, kittens are given wooden swords to practice with. Once they begin to learn ice magic, each Snowfoot comes up with and creates their own distict looking ice sword, which they will use for the rest of their lives. Making their own swords is an important stage in a young Snowfoot's life. Like a right of passage, it symbolizes teen-hood. The next stage is knighthood. (Which is Aaron's goal)
Snowfoot are one of the most organized, educated, and chivalrous tribes on Kotia. Every Snowfoot gets schooling in the Frozen Palace. Part of their studies includes mathematics, history, writing, magic, and intence training exercises. (Mostly with swords, but also other weapons)
Although there are seasons, there isn't a moment when there isn't any snow on the ground. During the winter months, Snowfoots grow bushier, especially around the chest and neck regions. They are mostly white with varying blue patterns.
They are classified as one of the "Good" tribes, and are in an alliance with several other tribes, including the Kotians.
One more note: The Snowfoot and Firetails HATE each other. (They are direct opposites, both culturally and magic wise)
Talked more about his tribe than Aaron, himself. Whatever, you guys had no idea who they were, so there.... Now you know.
