He is approximately 8 and a 1/2 feet tall and 15 feet long.
He feeds off the souls of the living to keep himself alive.
He can communicate telepathically and verbally.
He speaks Latin and English.
His name is represented by his unnatural outcome of luck.
He often travels alone and does not like to be involved in any events other than war.
Lucky constantly has a bad attitude and shows no remorse or emotion however underneath his black heart a feint spark of what little love he has.

Oh an it did not take me that long, i'm always goofing off, in general it should have taken me a little over 2 hours to complete this.
And i'm going to keep drawing lucky until I get as good as Lauuw_dragons does.

If ya want to do that, thn might I offer the advice of not using textures quite so much. They have their place, but in this instance, their use on the wings and in the background don't quite work. I know it can be a pain-in-the-rear-end to have to draw all those little feathers and all that, but it really does pay off.
Eg. look at what i did with my drawing of my own OC's dancing together. Rose's dress took me forever to do.
I also would not advise using the pen and airbrush tools quite so much, cuz though it makes things look all soft and cuddly, it doesn't always work if you wanna make this guy look badass. A little hint though, for Lucky's eyes. Seeing as they tend to glow so much, i would advise the use of the airbrush in that instance. start off with a sortof dark green, for the interior of the eyes, then move the colours gradually lighter in the greens and make it more vivid. You can skip a right few shades of it, but always- end with something close to white. that way it gives the impression of a glow. Then, if you like, stick in some light areas round his rims, like i did with... Hayley was it?
That aside, try just drawing him in sketches, use the pencil tool on a low intensity. work out his anatomy, and everything about him that way, before you go colouring. (good idea to use layers for that. start at the bottommost layer for th scetch. IE. layer 0. Then do the colouring etc. on the upper layers, but try lowering their 'visibility.' I'm sorry, that probs isnt the right term for it. I'm a wee bit outa sorts today.)
ALL that aside, i think you are really improving Heather. you've got a nice sense of poses for Lucky, and i like his character description, though i doubt He and m OC Daedrid would get along much. Just keep at your art, cuz you are really good, and just work at it.
