This is a drawing I originally started in one of my classes my junior year when I was really bored. I worked on it in various different classes for a few days to get the sketching and inking finished. After that I worked on it mainly at home and in my art class to do the coloring. The image of this creature just showed up in my head one day and I felt intrigued to draw one. I'm planning on maybe doing an elemental series with feliquine's eventually, especially since I already have 'fire'. I included 'guardian' in the title because he makes me think of a powerful creature guarding something, like a castle or fortress. I'm pleased with this one, but I think the fire could have been better, though I'm still trying to work with different techniques and get used to my Polychromos set, and the leg proportions could have been better (longer). Some of the color variations were lost in the scan, but over all the scan is okay.Done in pen & ink, Polychromos, and oil pencils.
