Eternity-Rivette by Magenta-Fantasies Eternity-Rivette by Magenta-Fantasies

Rivette is one of my Eternity characters; Eternity is an original series I write.
To learn more about Eternity, visit the offical website.

:bulletpink: Rivette's character profile

On a side note, I completely changed Rivette's color scheme for a number of reasons. I thought her old orange/gold color scheme was too similar to Topaz (ironically, I changed Topaz's color soon after changing Rivette's), and this color scheme represents her much better. I also like her markings much better, too. Another reason had to do with sexual dimorphism (which I've decided that Eternity anthros should have, seeing as they're MUCH more animal than human).

Information for those drawing her PLEASE READ:
:bulletpink: Rivette has blue eyes, not purple (though they do look purple on some computers). Her eyes are the same shade as her goggle-headband-
:bulletpink: -Which really is a headband. It's not a pair of functioning goggles; it's just a fashion accessory.
:bulletpink: Both her crests should stick off in the same direction. They NEVER stick off in opposite directions regardless of the perspective.
:bulletpink: Rivette's boots are REALLY high and REALLY tall. The heel should be very high and narrow, and the boots should cover all of her legs except for the very upper part of her thigh.
:bulletpink: Being a ground bird, Rivette has thicker legs than many of the other Eternity bird characters (Dixie and Ceylon are exceptions to this as well).

:bulletpink: Other drawings of her:
None with this design, unfortunately.

Nice one! It's rare to see shading done consistenly in relation to the source of light. For the highlights and shading though, I would recommend you use a different color, like say, orange-ish brown for the highlights of her hair, instead of a lighter shade of the base color. Try to experiment with using different colors for highlights and shading.

Thank you! I like hearing people's feedback. :D

I've found it works best to use white (in varying opacities) for lighting and different shades of gray to shade. I like your idea, but that's very similar to how Sonic-style shading is done (though Sonic-style shading is sharper), and that's not what I'm going for.

By the way, do you think my shading is too bold or too subtle or just right?

Ah, ok.
I think too subtle, it certainly needs to complement the more noticeable lighting.

Really? That's a cool name. :)

You can find out about the whole series through my website (which I can't directly link to because of a frankly stupid reason) but you can get to it indirectly through my FurAffinity page (see the Artist's Comments for the link).
