Leaping Kirin by Nambroth Leaping Kirin by Nambroth
First, I get asked a lot so I thought I'd provide some insight into my nonsense:

I often get very frustrated with drawing, and more often than not get fed up with the process of sketching, inking, erasing, cleaning it up, etc etc...

Sometimes my patience lacks and I just take a sheet of paper and hit it with inks without sketching first. Each stoke is permanant and mistakes can't be fixed.

I've chucked a lot of half-drawn pieces because of this! Patience pays off.

This is one of the ones that didn't get chucked, though it still, to me, has mistakes. For those that insist they don't see the mistakes, you are very kind. :)

What the heck is a kirin? [link]

We're always our worst critics. I don't post most of my drawings because I don't like them for one reason or another, but I find there's always someone out there that likes them. Maybe it's good not having a trained eye.. (Nah!)

I really like how this turned out. I could see a few "mistakes" here and there, but it's not enough to ruin the picture for me. You also must have a ton of patience to give this as much detail as you did! That aspect alone makes this picture impressive. :)
