Hmmm, this was suppose to be a quick one...but my hand wouldn't stop drawing. This is one of my dragon characters from a special dragon project of mine. I wanted to draw a simple version of her, but a detailed version is just as good.

Also for those you may or may not know, NeonDragon's website Flight Rising is up and running, I have an account if anyone wants to be friends, my account is DayDreamer. It's pretty cool, I really respect their hard work and dedication.

Oh my- this is amazing!! I love everything about it! The shininess on her neck and face, it just... WOW. How did you manage this on oekaki!?
amyd [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 0:34:56
This is absolutely astounding!!!! *0*
I really love that eye and the horn on the nose. All the detail....It's just amazing! I wish I could draw as good as you.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 3:39:47
oh my heavens to betsy this is awesome! Beautiful work!!! I love the horns on this O.O
[anon]als 2013/6/14 - 6:29:24
Oh my lord, the detail on this is gorgeous.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 7:4:53
Wow I love all the detailed little scales on the face. And the way the copper horns reflect on the rest of the scales is wonderful. That eye looks like lava. Beautiful.

geckodragon [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 17:0:1
This is amazing!!!!!!!!!! I can draw like this on paper but i can only dream of doing this good with oekaki!! WOWWWWWWW!!
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 19:30:55
I love the complementary stuff going on here, and the shiny smoothness of the underbelly. You've got quite a talent for textures.

Also, I just tried to check it out, but would someone like to explain to me what exactly flight rising is?
[anon]moo492_not_logged_on 2013/6/14 - 19:53:10
O.O I love the details in this! Those scales and the texture on the underside of its neck look amazing! I also really like how the eye contrasts with the blue of the scales, it looks great. :D
geckodragon [Profile] 2013/6/15 - 20:24:13
Speaking of flight rising, i tried to register and it refused to send me a registration email! I've waited 2 days now, and asked it to resend multiple times, but it won't do it!! Any ideas on what to do?
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/15 - 21:24:0
Check your spam folder if you haven't. Mine ended up there and I was VERY confused for a while.
geckodragon [Profile] 2013/6/16 - 10:23:33
i don't have a spam folder! =(
lady_miragon [Profile] 2013/6/16 - 11:3:19
Wow! Again awesome work! I also have a flight rising account! I'm Alara12 and I'll send you a note and we can be buddies! (^-^)
[anon]dragongirl508_not_logged_in 2013/6/16 - 15:58:8
what email do you have?

i use gmail, it went to my spam folder.
geckodragon [Profile] 2013/6/16 - 16:57:5
I use the mail program thing for macs.
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/16 - 18:44:49
Oh my gosh, thank you all for you wonderful comments! I didn't think this picture would get that much attention. My favorite thing to draw is dragons, so when people like them it makes me happy :D

@geckodragon: Well I suggest contacting NeonDragon, and explain your trouble. You can try to send her a email here [link] Are you at lest 13 years old? Because on the site it says 13 years and older can make an account. If you are, then I'm not sure why it's not working. But I wouldn't continue with this conversation here, maybe through email or the forums (we don't want to stretch this post with comments unrelated to the artwork)
geckodragon [Profile] 2013/6/17 - 14:56:46
Yeah. thanks guys. i am 13, and i contacted her already. i'll just wait and see what she says. )=S
dragongirl508 [Profile] 2013/6/17 - 17:15:21
try an online email... maybe it just doesnt work with that thing
[anon]moo492 2013/6/17 - 19:16:34
Gekodragon, the same thing happened to me. I tried to join on Saturday, and it's been 3 days now, and I still haven't gotten an email. I don't have a spam folder either. :\

"I hate these cursed markings.
They give me the involuntary name "Spawn of the Devil,"
Chased out of house and home, forever cursed to walk this freezing world.

Please, someone, take them from me.
This cursed skin, the glowing scales, take them.
I want to be normal, I am nothing of the demon they call me.
Someone, anyone...
Meet me with an embrace...

I need someone to talk to, because I'm on the brink."


okay! i dont really know where this came from... just happened. *shrug* maybe ill make a character out of it.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 3:40:26
ooh, I like oh the marks glow. It looks absolutely sinister... :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 7:3:49
Very cool, I love those glowy red marks. The smoke coming from its nose is really well done.
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/6/15 - 9:5:24
I can already see a cool story coming out of this....!
The drawing is very awesome! That design is wicked, the horn is awesome, and I also like the smoke. It looks real!
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:33:47
i hope you make this into a thing! it seems so, so cool.

skullzhead [Profile] 2013/6/16 - 19:30:15
Yes, that shiny hair is fantabulous!
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:34:18

As it has been roughly a year since i first posted my OC Daedrid on this site, (And owing the need to provide Heather with a further reference for him- Enjoy) I decided to do a right aul' revamp of Daedrid's first Ever appearrance on NDA. So, he's in this weird underground cavern thing, and it aint really lightening but a sort of pant that grows there, and the roots sort of shoot downward to soak up the moisture from the watery stuff.
Well, Hope you guys likey! C&C much appreciated.

wolven [Profile] 2013/6/13 - 17:16:47
Plant. Its meant to say 'Plant' there.
shroudedindisaster [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 6:14:29
this is just really really cool and intense looking. everything i so dark and all of the colors totally pop out! he looks great! i think the only thing I would say about it is probably to move the eye down a bit!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 7:1:58
I really like the shape of the horns. It's difficult to critique the character because he has such unique anatomy. But I think that his back feet could benefit from some more shape. Right now they look a little tall and boxy. [link] Here's a picture of a dog paw to illustrate what I mean. Those long fingers are so sinister-looking.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 7:2:56
Well shoot that link didn't work. It was just a close-up picture of a dog's paw.
wolven [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 9:39:57
@ shrouded. He doesn't actually have eyes, but I'm glad you like him.

@Dreya. I understand what you mean about his legs being a bit too tall, and boxy, but truth be told i find it quite hard to get them right anyway. I was also trying to make it look as though he is leaning forward or something. Sorry about the link as well.

Anyways, glad you guys like this. :)
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/15 - 21:26:50
Just the overall definition of everything is improved, and the contrast of light and dark is seem to be really good at creating low lighting as well as defining dark objects, something I have trouble with. I like the plants as well, and his acid saliva.
shroudedindisaster [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 10:32:7
Oops sorry! I must've been looking at the design by the horn. Still awesome job though :)

This was I went to a random word genorator and these were the words that came up:

So I decided to try and make a picture out of and into an adopt. :)
Tell me what you think. Oh and try out the random word thing it's awesome! :D

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 6:52:19
This is a very cute idea! I love the coat.

portrait practice... c&c?

floodcontrol [Profile] 2013/6/13 - 0:38:37
Nice work.
I think you could have benefited from some heavier dimensional shading. I love the way you did the jewelry and the anatomy of the neck and shoulders. The hair texture seems a little incongruous when compared to how 'sharp' the rest of the picture looks. Nice coloring too.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 6:51:49
I agree with flood control - go a little deeper on the shadows and a little brighter on the highlights. But this is very nice, I love all the colors in the hair and I especially like the detail in the earring and necklace.

Kmish and Arid. The tan flying cats with big ears...okay so Kmish isn't a flying cat but he kinda looks like one.

Lemmy has been very supportive and kind to me as I prepared for my big test that's tomorrow, and I really want to give her a hug. But I hate hugs and Lemmy is like 6 hours away, so instead I had my character Kmish give her character Arid a hug. I have no idea if Arid likes hugs...Arid belongs to Lemmy.

[anon]lemmy 2013/6/12 - 19:42:59
I literally squealed when I saw this uwu

They're so cute! I love it! And they're in a desert, which would be Arid's favorite terrain. This is the greatest. You are the best bro.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/13 - 4:12:3
this is so cute! as always, your fur and wings are phenomenal, and the whole love/family/friend theme is so ADORABLE! :)
shroudedindisaster [Profile] 2013/6/13 - 14:30:16
Ah the fur and wings look so great! This is supa' sweet :)
catgirl [Profile] 2013/6/13 - 21:5:50
They're so cute! Arid's pose is great, and such cute expressions.

Very pretty, I like the light lineart. The coloring on the character is so smooth, it looks very nice.

I call this little piece of art Double trouble.

granted I did take a while on this, and I kept getting distracted throughout, I had to go make a playlist on youtube because I knew this would take a while.

Anyway SOMEONE wanted me to draw more of Chaos, so here she is.
I wanted to display the differences between Lucky and Chaos so I thought the best way to do that was draw them together.

skullzhead [Profile] 2013/6/12 - 19:19:34
;o; Chaos! So pretty! I love the contras between the two. Lucky's fire and the frosty effect around Chaos. Gosh they are such cool characters! <3
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/13 - 4:15:19
these characters of yours are pretty darn epic. I love how each one glows with a different power :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 6:53:39
It's cool to see them side by side and compare and contrast their designs. I like their colored paw pads.

Wow, I love all the different shapes on this guys body. Is he wearing armor? I wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley.

Mailee belongs to Miles~

[anon]miles 2013/6/11 - 15:26:55
oh my gosh, you draw her so nicely ;A;
the fur looks sooo goooood ahhhghhhhh
and her nose is so shiny wahh
thank you for this, i love it ;w; she is so adorable in your style. i love your lines.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 6:49:49
She's adorable. I love the way you did the highlights on the tuft of hair on her forehead. And I really like your lines, the way they vary in thickness looks nice.
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/16 - 19:13:54

BBC's Sherlock, (Benedict Cumberbatch) For Skullzhead.

This guy was pretty fun to draw tbh. His hair was a little annoying, but the Coat... just woah. I don't think I've ever done one so good. I would also like to say that this guy's acting is incredible, having found out he is the voice of Sauron in LOTR and also having watched Star Trek Into Darkness. Amazing man.
Well, i really hope you like this Skullzhead!

wolven [Profile] 2013/6/11 - 7:36:15
ugh, forgot to mention, that I decided to stick my signature in at the bottom right there, and the marking is the mark of the wolven. Bit a' craic like.

Additionally, here is the link to the reference i used for this picture.
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/6/11 - 9:54:31
TTwTT Tear of happiness for this picture. Thank you so much wolven! That coat collar its fantabulous, along with his glorious cheekbones! XD
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/11 - 10:14:15
The coat is awesome! I am a fan of the actor too. Did you know he is going to do the voice of the dragon in The Hobbit? Also love the hair you did by the way.
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/12 - 11:4:19
Yeah, it took me about -2 seconds to recognize this guy. This is pretty sweet, like everyone else said the coat is awesome along with the scarf. And that hair is glorious as well. My only question is where'd his mouth go? XD Or perhaps that's the way you wanted to draw it, but I'm just curious.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 6:48:7
Great job on this! The coat looks really nice, and I actually really like the way you drew his hair.

Wasn't sure where I was going with this, but you can't go wrong with two dragons and swirly clouds. For a better version see [link]
Sorry, i don't know how to link on this website, hope that works...
So I finely got off for spring break last week and I used that week to start a blog (which is the one I mentioned above). Seriously I have been sitting in this chair for so long I'm pretty sure I've forgotten how to walk... and eat..... and sleep.
The blog is kind of sketchy at the moment, so If anyone has extra time on their hands your welcome to see it (and if you do, tell me how it is I'm biting my nails here!). May the force be with you all.
... I'm starting to scare myself. Seriously, I need to get some sleep...

kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/10 - 16:35:20
Hurray it worked. The link doesn't take you exactly to the picture so just click "Artwork" then go down twenty-two pictures.
furyofash-official [Profile] 2013/6/10 - 16:39:28
Great work!
The scales and background is something that you can only picture in your head but you managed to let it out.
I see a person on the red dragon. Thorn and murtagh perhaps?
Sorry. Eragon fan.
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/10 - 16:51:14
I wasn't thinking about them, but if you want to view it as that bro I'm fine as long as i get to add that Eragon is missing because he got eaten by Thorn.
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/10 - 16:52:26
Its a better ending that way.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/11 - 4:19:50
Ooh, this is AMAZING! I love all the tiny details, like the veins in the wings and the lighting on the scales. :D

finally figured out the little text box thing, god i'm such an idiot.
I'm still not fully accustomed to all the drawing tools yet.

But here is my OC Hayley in her dragon form, her dragon's name by the way is ebony, I changed it, shadow was just too simple.

this is one of those times where you want to draw something but have no idea what you want to draw, I guess my mind told me to draw a dragon and then it ended up being Ebony.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/10 - 14:37:12
I like the subtle scales :) Nice job!
[anon]moo492_not_logged_in 2013/6/10 - 16:25:54
Don't worry, I still haven't figured out that little text box, and I have been drawing on this site for almost 5 years now. :P
I agree, I really like those little scales, and I love how you drew the teeth, and the head shape overall. The detail is great!
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/11 - 6:25:41
Sometimes its hard to do the jaw when the mouth is open, but you nailed it. Awesome work.
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/6/11 - 20:21:51
This is so cool! I love all the teeth and the smoke. You draw dragons very well!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/14 - 6:46:45
Looking back on the last time you drew this dragon, you really have improved a lot. The shape of the snout looks great.
