Yorokobi Reference Sheet 2012 by Junryou-na-Kokoro Yorokobi Reference Sheet 2012 by Junryou-na-Kokoro
| edit | Changed the background color for better legibility. Changed a few design elements.

He has undergone many changes within the past few years,
as y'all may compare to his previous character sheet:



If y'all have any questions about him, please do ask. Oh two things:
the "feathers" on his arms can be drawn as fur too.
I couldn't make up my mind which I liked better. xD Also, I've decided to ditch the feathers on his face.

This is really nice! So detailed. Do you take commissions? I would love a simple ref sheet of my OC. What's your prices?

WOOHAA lookin' awesome! This fellow has always been one of my favorite OC's. Since I saw picture Johis did and I found your dA-page.
Just.. So beautiful and original design. ♥ Great job with the sheet!

I personally like the arm feathers more than the fur, but I'm a bit undecided about the front paws. The scales seem oddly placed to me. But I do like the change of color.

Junryou-na-Kokoro Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I still can't make up my mind on the arm feathers/fur, so I've left it open to being both. xD

I'd like to defend the scales by saying that Yoro is an oddity in himself, but I'm curious as to what you mean. Are the scales anatomically incorrect? I admit-ably drew them from memory, so there could definitely be errors. >~<

:icondemonfirekirara:
DemonFireKirara Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You are right about that, he is an oddity, so I'm not too concerned about this. It's just that when I see his paws it's more like he's wearing bird gloves rather than actually having bird feet. Look at this image [link] . Notice how the scales grow bigger towards the fingers and are smaller near the ankle. But again, he is a fictional character so he can take any shape and color (that's the fun!)

Ah, I see what you're talking about - the smaller "dotty" scales. I was trying to keep his scaling simplified on the sheet & based off the American Kestrel's feet.

Thank you for your input. :)

Did I ever tell you how much I love Yoro
Because I do
If I could ever just
Take him and snuggle him I would ;U;

And let me say I love how you did this reference sheet!
Now I'll never second guess myself when fanarting XDDDD"
I'm thinking it's high time Grey gets a shiny new one ouo

Talking about snuggling Yoro makes me want to craft a plushie of him.

Heehee, why thank ya'! I tried to include ALL OF THE THINGS, without making a 10-page guide on Yorokobi's every attribute. ;D

Ooo, I look forward to seeing Grey's new sheet!

Ooh, really nice work with remaking his ref. :u I like the ways he's changed, as well as the presentation of the ref. Interesting little tidbits of info and great views of everything on him so there's no chance he'll be drawn incorrectly :v Must've taken a while to complete, but you did swell on it.

:nod: I made sure that I draw nearly every side of him, because the last one just didn't have enough visual information. Glad you like how I presented the info!

The sheet itself probably only took 5 or so hours to make, but I had it sitting on my hard drive for months because I had other things to work on... xD

Oh, yeah, that was definitely a good thing to do. I should do that with my refs more often, but I have so many characters, it'd be a bit of a pain to bother with so many drawings, haha.

Ahh, lawdy. Well, at least you had a little something to work on during periods when you weren't workin on other things :V

I love how his hands are five-fingered, and how you incorporate the Snow Leopard's lower jaw into his facial design. That's stuff you don't usually see in typical Gryphon designs. :(

I seriously thought about changing his hands to only 4 fingers, but I figured he could stay unique like that. :D Glad you like his unique muzzle too!
