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

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*

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
this is gorgeous o.o
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 17:22:49
Well hey, that tool's got to be good for something, I think you nailed it.
[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.

Finally finished! (no it didn't take me that long...was goofing off)

A reference sheet to Lucky.
If you like Lucky feel free to ask me questions about him, and of course if you want to draw him you may use this as a reference.

yes he is evil, yes the wings are meant for good Tressym but he wasn't always good...

...Now i'm going to join the bandwagon and set a dragon head as my next target...

sandra [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 5:49:43
I absolutely love what you have done here. I was just thinking is there some kind of clan thing with him cause he seems like a leader type to me. Like Lucky leader of the Pantheon clan.
[anon]darkhunter 2013/7/2 - 18:50:2
You've improved a lot on your cat anatomy :)

I would start studying wing anatomy next, as a wing with good feather placement can make an image~
dragonmania [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 7:11:48
hey Heather, may i have the honor of drawing Lucky? I've wanted to get back drawing of this site but i haven't actually thought of anything to draw XD, he looks like he'd be tons of fun to draw so may i have ago, i thought that it's better to ask first.
He looks really good as he is and i love your style of drawing.
Hope to see more of your work soon,
miles [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 19:53:54
your anatomy has improved so much :3 darkhunter is right, you should have a go at studying wing anatomy! the feathers wouldn't allow a bird to fly here.
heather [Profile] 2013/7/4 - 21:7:21
Yes you may draw him, thank you for asking. :)
and the wing everyone, isn't actual size, its detached from him to show the detail the wing itself is about 5 foot wide and 15 (about as long as he is) foot long.
But thanks, and i will brush up on my wing drawing skills.

This is really good, considering that I'm terrible at the front view of dragon heads.
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 3:57:25
i was gonna say it reminded me of monty python too!! fortunately this artist didn't suffer a heart attack so the dragon is still here ;^)
i love the muzzle. nice work =w=
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/30 - 6:3:55

my favourite part is the spread toes in the hind leg, it is so well drawn.
you captured such a laidback attitude, it's amazingggg

you must stare at the sexy almost-stark-naked boy o3o

a new character of mine, Ra. he is a demon, but an angel at heart. he loves an angel girl, a princess at that, but his skin of a demon get in the way. he actually met her when they were little, and loved her since.

i dunno what to do for his demon form... this is already in my sketchbook... looks better to me in there. XD im not so sure of the lineart here but i do like 2px better than 1.

so... how many of you did a double take?! o3o

arya [Profile] 2013/6/29 - 19:42:58
This is really good! Add some help, if I may: The head looks a bit too big. when drawing heads, you want to start off with a nice circle, and make the the base of the cranium/scalp. I feel like that helps a lot, because then it sizes down the head into proportion. I used to draw my heads really oversized, but that little trick helped. ^^ Great drawing though. I like the whole demon/angel idea.
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:3:39
nice work.. you are improving so much from what i remember you doing.
because, as arya said, the head is too big, i think it throws off the rest of the anatomy for you. the shoulders should be much broader, and thus allow room for the ribcage to be as wide as it should be. at the minute it seems like it's been squished, and that's because the shoulders are really small! [link] a good ref, especially for muscle placement.
the belly button should also be higher, and his hips should be a little wider. again this is just due to the thinness of the rest of the body =w=

otherwise, great job, and keep this improvement coming!
