I just noticed that this dragon bears a striking resemblance to the main character of the story that I'm writing on DA. The main difference is the fact that she is a white dragoness. She has slightly different horns and a more concave head shape. Well, to my point, I am terrible on shading and getting the proportions and positions right on the legs and paws. If I change the pose of the dragon and the placements of the legs and paws (and color), do you mind if I use this as a guide to get the correct proportions and shading?
Hi! While I cannot (and don't want to) claim that this pose is 'mine', I would like to encourage originality in artwork. Here's a hint that helped me: if you study lithe quadrupedal animals such as big cats, they will give you poses, proportions, and shading help galore (without the negative of copying MY mistakes)! The natural world has much more that it can teach you than simply copying the pose/coloring of my made up artwork can!
I can't believe this is drawn with traditional media! The colors are so bright and glowing, the color composition is perfect! As well as the dragon's anatomy.
You must be a genius to draw something like this without Ctrl+Z and the possibility to overdraw parts you don't like. Oh and I love your technique to draf stones, foilage and distant trees! I'll try it, too ^^
just watched some of your other paintings, they're beautifull! I really love the two bird in the water pictures I also watched this painting small, in your gallery. then you don't see the lines anymore, and then it is magical
