Cross you fingers people, because I was able to contact Neon herself and reminded her that the Flight Rising preview banner (on the front page) is still not updated. She responded, and not only did her say she would put that on her "To do list", but she hinted that she (when things settle done on flight rising) would give this place some updates.

I know she not talking about anytime soon, but still, just knowing that one day this place will get some updates is exciting. I just hope she doesn't forget :)

Now on to the picture, I wanted to try bright colors this time. This is a young dragon, the older dragons find him really annoying. I haven't thought of a name yet for him yet.

Wow! Neondragon hasn't been on here for years! And since she's been gone, the oekaki has become a lot less popular too, so that'll be great!
I love your dragons nose! And the fur of the mane looks fantastic :)
bonbon [Profile] 2013/7/13 - 13:24:34
wow the colors here are perf!!! the blue/orange combo really makes this stick out
this picture just pops!

I REQUEST FAN ART!
been seeing a few lately, like to see some more.
Come on people I know you're a fan of something!

As for me I think you know who I am a fan of.
I Love the REAL Spyro (and not that goblin looking thing)

I think I'm going to practice on my lighting next, and work on backgrounds.


inu112 [Profile] 2013/7/13 - 0:11:14
Lighting is always a good thing to practice. Your anatomy is pretty good, especially the facial structure. The lighting in this one is fairy generic; it's not focused much on one source, which should have been the little yellow guy (Sorry don't know its name). Also, your lines are very bold all over which makes it hard to tell what the main focus of the composition is. Always remember, thick, dark lines come forward and thinner, lighter lines push back. Having thick lines all over the piece makes it hard to focus on the details. And the last thing, just be careful with that dodge tool.
amyd [Profile] 2013/7/13 - 16:38:10
I really like the Spyro games as well. Anyway, this is really good. i love the pose that he is in and the way you did his face. I also really like how you drew Sparx.
Well done. You've improved so much.
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/7/14 - 12:20:51
This is gorgeous! Amazing job with the details of his head and wings, and think those made a big impact on the result of the picture. The shading on the chest scales is superb as well!

"Come now, elusive sigh. Open up their eyes to see, so many of us are just the same as you. Have we all hid, have we all hid ourselves from friends?"

I didn't expect to get the next one up so quickly, but here is Saba. Saba is a shapeshifter and really has no true form, but it likes to hang around as a cat and usually wears colors such as golds, oranges, browns and whites. But here we see him in a human(ish) form. Unlike the last three of this series who represent something concrete he (and the rest of the series) get a bit abstract. Saba is physical shape, and change.


dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/11 - 2:27:37
Yay, you finished him! I admire your determination. His hair looks absolutely amazing, so many colors! I love the shine you got on that necklace too. looks so amazing. Your anatomy is wonderful, I think you pulled off androgyny well. He looks just like I'd imagine him, there is something catty about that expression...hahaha.
catgirl [Profile] 2013/7/11 - 13:33:35

I love how the eyes look especially the shines. Everything about this drawing is great, I love it. You are so much more better at this then me.

Wild guesses as to who my favorite character is....

I will have to try again.

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

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.

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.

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
