Rabia reference 2017 by Sezaii Rabia reference 2017 by Sezaii
Two years after her last reference, she has made a big change. I felt the last Rabia didn't really portray me in the way I wanted to (the sort of bright, positive spark she was), and she has slowly made the progression towards something a lot more...troubled (I suppose?).

So I'm going to explain who Rabia actually is in relation to my story line and clear things up as far as this because its been a sort of rollercoaster for me deciding who is my 'sona', and yes, she is that. So Rabia is not actually a character in my story as such, she is actually a combination of two characters of mine, Canta and Vepa (hence the black and white colouration now). Canta and Vepa are actually sisters, both born Razorwings. However they were both born mutated due to where they hatched (near a fracture, which leaked a lot of influence). These two are basically the opposite of each other, so black and white in colour, but also repellent personalities. When they open up to each other, they become one, and that is Rabia!

So she's not exactly a 'character', she's more of a combination of two, which is part of my storyline. Canta and Vepa will get their Razorwing references soon enough.

It's kinda strange, because I like birds, but things like "plague doctor" masks or this kind of hybrids just freak me out...

Yay! Glad to see a new ref for your 'sona! Question though, which is the size comparison for the human silhouette? Is Rabia still about 4' tall?

Thank you! Rabia stands at about 5.1' which is actually my own height :) So tall enough to bit someone in the face, haha

SO WHENEVER XEY IS MAKING OUT WITH HER; SHE IS ACTUALLY HAVING A TREESOME???[Icon] Genius!
Damn I absolutely ADORE this sheet. I have to agree with the others when I say that it's her best so far! The whole design is just well thought out and pleasing to the artistic eye and damn those small full body drawings on her rock O-O She has that perfect kind of design for traditional works, especially those with coloured pencils. I might as well use her as a model to finally get into traditional shit again. Simply amazing, what a beautiful character! Also for the first time the word "fierce" popped into my head way faster than the word "cute". Good job on that xD
Also: those talons slay! (figuratively and literally) :D

Omg haha. Well Rabia is more of a representational character than an actual one, so yea, but I suppose she is actually a whole '1' still, even though she is two characters combined (I suppose its like my oh-so favourite Bible story of God being a trinity XD).

Thank you so much! It is a bit scrappy but I'm happy with the design more than anything, and I'm glad most people like the new design too. It would be amazing to see her in your traditional style, please feel free! And super glad she looks less cute and cuddly now, thats what I was aiming for! Thanks so much!

Ever since you mentioned a new ref I've been waiting for this, and it does not disappoint! She looks so fierce and sleek, and you've really improved anatomy wise! I love her new form so much, you did a great job.
