the new hibbary by hibbary the new hibbary by hibbary
Or whatever I decide to end up calling it.

I am neglectful and disinterested in the online persona thing, but as they make for good art trades at cons and amongst personal friends, I have revamped mine. The lynx was just something I came up with for a website that allowed big cats only and wasn't terribly representative of myself. Way back in the day when I was but a wee sprout I drew a dragon version of myself and so I suppose it to be more appropriate.

The trouble with designing a new one is that I'm so comfortable and accustomed with myself as I am that creating a representation that wasn't me didn't feel like me. It would have been easier if I instinctually felt: Yes! This is right! But ah well; it's just for fun. I did try to include some of my various traits. My crazy hair has converted into crazy horns in which twigs and other leafy matter clings. 'Thin and hairy with a tired expression' is an accurate description of myself. That is, head hair, not body hair. That would be terrifying ha ha.

I always think that people who have trouble seeing themselves in persona are more true to themselves than they know - we do not see our reflections as clearly as we see other folk. This is rather neat, interesting to contemplate.

The linework, especially for the antlers, is beautiful. The twist of the torso and hind leg is wonderful. It makes me happy to look at the realistic accuracy with which you portrayed this fantastical creature. I like how you tranlated your "crazy hair" into curly, be-greened antlers. The bright green of the vines clashes slightly with the otherwise subdued colors, but it's such a small aspect of the piece that it doesn't negatively effect it as a whole. Bravo!

I have the same problem! Also in that all of my personas run away and become characters, the latest one almost immediately. =P

Lovely! Been working on a dragon of my own so it's always helpful to see the little tricks of design; I love your fuzzy dudes.

I tend not to draw distinctions. All my personas are like alternate realities rather than a true reflection of myself. But I wouldn't say they were their own person, either. But that's what art is for--to break rules and defy labels.

I like this. If nothing else, I dig the dark purple-black-blue and the chandelier antlers/horns.

Not everybody self-projects into an anthropomorphic idea. In fact, most people don't. But it's still fun to imagine.

I also think that certain people who come just for arguing is dumb. :| I'm sorry you have to deal with that, Hibb.

Oh it happens. Usually it's just a frustrated kid with underdeveloped communication skills, more than likely procrastinating on their own work. I haven't even kept up with the discussion. Too busy making art. But it can be a trial and I thank you for your condolences.

It's lovely, beautiful colours and amazing how much personality you have managed to get in as well :) Love the description as well and am glad it's not body-hair being this wild :p
Myself I have dreadlocks and they act like Velcro lol, everything and especially twigs get stuck.
Anyways, like it a lot, added to favs :love:

Your hair collects leaves and stuff? That's some pretty thick hair! ;) The translation to horns works out pretty interestingly, though, and the wings are quite lovely. And the claws are sharp and pointy. Don't you wish you had claws? There's a lot of people out there who could use a good clawing.
