I promised a friend when I was at the academy that I'd draw her a Toothless <3
I kept my promise.


kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 18:58:41
I love Toothless! You did a great job with the anatomy. Although I might just be being very picky here, but his eye color seems a bit off (its sort of a light gold-green color not a solid apple green). K sorry, it was bugging me. Other then that he is very lovely and I recognized him right away.
[anon]graduatewalton 2013/7/7 - 20:11:13
Thank you so much!!!! :) I <3 you!!!
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 21:51:25
Whew. Wasn't sure if I was being to picky. Glad you appreciated it :D
[anon]sacer 2013/7/8 - 19:51:3
I'm glad you like it so much walton~ ^^ Maybe I'll be seeing you soon?
~~
Yea, his eyes are a tad of a different green shade but I really wanted them to "pop" so I drew it like this. Thank you for the compliment <3

Something relatively fast to mix things up from another drawing. Took longer than I expected.


bonbon [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 16:34:45
whoa!!! this is so cool!!! i love those greens so much on her pants and shoes!! that purple is really nice too. these colors are really easy on the eyes. i like it!! her hair is so cute and i love her eye wwwwaah
prysm [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 20:21:30
Wow this is cool, love the colors and lines.

Things are starting to heat up...
Is it hot in here or is it just me?...

Darren in his dragon form with his cute little smirk and biting his lip.
Both forms he is still a bad boy.


brownwolfcub [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 1:55:25
Oh! :O This is great! The perspective is flawless! I /really/ like the eyes and the mouth, the lip area is beautiful. *drools* Great work. The smoke coming from his nose is wonderful, and good choice of texture :D <3
catgirl [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 10:50:14
You have really improved!
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 11:33:51
Cool texture for his skin! I love the way your draw eyes too, they look so vivid~!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 11:36:8
I think your dragons are my favorite thing that you draw. The snout on this guy looks great, and I love the details on his skin. The eye is really pretty.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 15:43:15
oooooooooooh, I like! that eye is awesome, and I love the texture you used for the scales :)

Heather's character Lucky
Here you go heather, thanks for letting e draw him, i hope i did him justice.
any comments and criticisms are appreciated, as is some advise on drawing backgrounds
Dragonmania


heather [Profile] 2013/7/5 - 13:8:29
I absolutely adore him! :D thank you so much for drawing him! <3

As for the crits I actually think you did really well with him however his neck seems a little too.. thin?, Lucky's neck is really bulky, a bit like a horse and his collar fits tightly around his neck not flopping everywhere.

Lucky himself is actually very fit and muscular with only enough fat to pad his bones and paws, I know muscle tone is a very hard thing for even me to pull off, even in my reference I couldn't demonstrate how fit he is but he should have been big and bulky.

I really like the wings though, i'm quite jealous of how you get such detail into it when I can only draw the highlights. and I really like the paw pads too, they look really neat.

One more crit and i'll be out of your hair, Lucky's jaws tend to be very thick and pack a tremendous amount of bite force, what I do is draw out the size of the face first then add the mouth outline once I have drawn the head out.

Again thank you for drawing him, I don't know what advice to give you on backgrounds as i'm not exactly and expert on backgrounds myself.
dragonmania [Profile] 2013/7/5 - 13:29:54
Thanks heather, all of the things you said made perfect sense, i had quite a bit of trouble getting his head right. Glad you're pleased with my drawing of him though, the wings were tons of fun to do and the tail reminds me of my cat Buster's!!!!! i should probably practice drawing felines more in the future.

This video has helped me more than anything else. It may seem sort of unrelated but once you start to harness fractals and shading I think you'll see your backgrounds improve dramatically. (mine certainly did)
A lot of people will say stuff like 'perspective'. Perspective is nice and even invaluable, but at times, I feel its utilization in practical drawing can feel too geared towards 'man-made environments' (aka: cities, and stuff like blocks and boxes). When it comes to organic environments (aka: Nature and landscapes) fractals are everything.
(blah blah, fractals, vanishing points, fractals, blah blah blah... I'll shut up before this response becomes 3 pages long. Watch the video if you have time to spare because it's far more interesting than I make it sound.)
dragonmania [Profile] 2013/7/6 - 11:17:3
Thanks floodcontrol i just watched it and it made tons of sense. It really brought out my inner geek as well so i quite enjoyed watching it, might have to see if i can buy that book he's talking about at the beginning

catgirl [Profile] 2013/7/11 - 13:32:41
Although the build is not on model for the character, it looks very feline. The far front foot (where we see the pawpads) is turned too much toward us for a simple walk, should be much more to the side.

Your feathered wings are really cool.

My little bit of 4th of July..

And a little bit of Tsain's background, without revealing too, too much. :3


kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/5 - 10:2:57
That's really cool! The handcuffs are an awesome detail.
zoingishly [Profile] 2013/7/5 - 10:37:33
Thank you. :3
[anon]bluedragonfaerie 2013/7/5 - 20:32:12
Hey
I havent seen you in a while, You have improved since the last time I saw your work, keep it up :)
zoingishly [Profile] 2013/7/6 - 13:21:0
Thanks~ I don't really see it, myself. But if you can see it, then it means I'm movin' on up. <3
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/7 - 15:57:22
I always love how you define muscles in your characters. How do you get the airbrush to look so smooth? I never touch it because I can't get it to look like that but yours looks amazing.
zoingishly [Profile] 2013/7/10 - 16:3:30
I airbrush on the layer on top, and use very fine opacity, then I erase depending on what needed to be shaded and what didn't. :3 Very tender usage, always left me with a cleaner air-brush, I've noticed. Thanks, Drey. <3

My first Picture of 2013!!
I haven't drawn for sooo long, so I am a bit rusty and my pictures may look kind of crappy, I need to get the feel of drawing all over again.


miles [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 19:41:0
first picture of 2013?? thats a long time without drawing!! well it was worth the wait, this is fantastic! the colours are beautiful, and the shines on the lips are so nice i dont want to look away *w*
floodcontrol [Profile] 2013/7/5 - 20:32:10
Wow, There are so many things about this illustration that I love.
The colors, the composition, it's just so appealing to me.

Super fail attempt at making this bird's design into a dragon. [link]
It's a very pretty bird, but I am a terrible artist, especially with dragons....


bonbon [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 22:13:2
wow the transition from bird to dragon here is really good. you kept almost the same colors as the bird did which is really cute aw. i like the shiny lighting all over it, especially in the blues. the only problem i see is that the dragon's head is the same color as the shading of its neck, so it looks like you gave up on giving the read of it highlights. if that makes sense??? of course when you look at the reference, you can tell that the head is definitely a different color than the blue!! i guess i'm just being nitpick-y!! sorry!! that aside this is really cute and i cant wait to see more art from you!!
bonbon [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 22:15:50
rest* not read!! sorry for the double post
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 9:29:18
Hmm, I have not thought of that! I knew a lot of thing with the coloring/shading were bugging me, but I couldn't place them. I think the color I chose for the head was all wrong in general, too. Thanks bonbon! <3
miles [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 19:42:10
this is so pretty.. i love the neck, it is so shiny and nice ahhhhhh

As if leaving that comment was neccassery. Seriously, this is a place for people to draw and get better not for you to think you're hilarious posting nasty comments. Also, tying your "anon" with you actual email was a silly idea now wasnt it. If you could do better why don't you put that to the test.
bleufire [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 7:37:33
This is really cute, I like the feet especially.

Unicorn-- although 'bob's' comment was unnecessary, please leave it to the mods to take care of. We don't want to trigger unneeded drama~
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 9:59:38
I really love the feet too and the designs on the chest. Keep up the good work :D
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 13:12:33
oh my heavens, this is so cute! I love this drawing style :)
and bob, seriously? in my opinion, cruel comments like this are people just being immature and flat out stupid. I bet you don't realize that some people take this seriously. people can be broken by this stuff, and feel wretched for the rest of their lives. I hope you grow up and become more responsible.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 13:13:21
woops sorry mods forgot to read other comments *blushes*
prysm [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 10:56:27
Mod note; Removed the comment. Thank you everyone for handling it with maturity.
miles [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 19:39:47
wow, in all my years of being here i have never seen such a calm handling of a stupid comment like that before! good job guys.
the picture is super cute too. i love your designs, they are always so creative :^)
[anon]thedreamrunner 2013/7/7 - 19:59:46
lol thank you everyone! :3
Although i have no clue what the whole situation was about i appreciate the respect towards the problem. :)
Also I am always open for qomper requests! :D

Pyz has a habit of being naughty. He gets bored and kicks bottles off benches and tables cos he likes seeing and hearing them smash. His favourite game though, is backing up a wall and launching himself at said bottles headfirst. Plus, he likes the wine.


bonbon [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 22:15:30
wow pyz looks like such a goofy lil dragon! and very mischievous. i really like the pose and expression here. it took me some really hard looking to figure out what the background was and... pyz is really small!! unless he lives in a world with insanely large wine bottles hahaha. he's so cute!! i like him
prysm [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 11:11:59
My boyfriend does that kind of. He gets bored and will slap stuff out of people's hands, knock it to the floor. Even if you pick it up, he'll just do it again. Really funny though hah
miles [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 19:47:46
your anatomy is so nice :3 i love how you draw hind legs. you put so much movement into your drawings.

Just a little fan art going on here, i'm quite proud of this.
Alucard is legitimately my favorite character ever!


[anon]earthdragon206 2013/7/2 - 11:28:13
He's my favorite anime character. Awesome job
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/7/3 - 15:3:49
Pbbbfffttt this is the coolest Alucard, seriously. I love the epic coloring in his glasses and the glowing of the eyes around him. Nice job!
miles [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 19:48:30
alucard definitely is pretty cool :3
i like your rendition of him here. you captured the kind of emotion he portrays really nicely.

kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 11:8:54
I was playing around with the gritty texture modes... But got a bit carried away with the dodge and burn modes in the end. I'm not sure if its too much. What do you guys think?


dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 14:18:14
I don't think the dodge/burn is too much here. You can definitely notice it, but it doesn't come across as glaring and instead seems to highlight all your lovely colors. Those golds are beautiful, and I love all the wrinkles on the elephant skin. Beautiful.
bonbon [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 14:51:30
actually you seem to know how to use the dodge/burn better than the majority ive seen!!! it's not glaringly obvious you used them, but the way you used them makes this pop out a lot. i definitely like the right side of the picture where the burn tool was more prominently used. i guess cuz it looks like there are little cracks everywhere, and it's really interesting to look at! i don't know!! the elephant's wrinkles were drawn really well (however you did them), and the sparkles everywhere are my fav. keep it up!!!!
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 15:25:26
Thanks guys, I was worried. And yeah I did use the burner on the right side more. I liked the sparkles too Bonbon :D
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 17:4:36

[anon]catgirlisnotloggedin 2013/7/2 - 10:54:9
It's really pretty. You can tell, particularly with the dodge on the left, but it's the kind of thing it works well for.
[anon]ferris 2013/7/2 - 22:0:15
I love this so much! It looks amazing.
miles [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 19:50:23
this is so surreal! and i second pumadragon's words.
[anon]notbeenoninsolong 2013/9/5 - 20:34:37
This took my breath away, you area fantastic artist and this piece alone has made me want to get on and draw RIGHT NOW.... excuse me while i go stalk all your stuff and maybe try to copy this style.

It almost reminds me of the Narnia book collection cover.
