"Hey two-leggers, the names Sandstorm."

I think this guy has to be the most fun dragon head I've colored :D And I don't know why, I just really had fun with this one. Flight Rising is having trouble, so I thought I'd draw another dragon. I want to make a second deviantart account, and post all my serious drawing on it, including these dragon heads.

Now I command you all to draw dragons heads!

digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/22 - 16:26:24
Oh yeah I forgot to say, this dragon (and the blue one from earlier) was all done with the pen tool. I only messed with its setting when needed, like the pressure.
shroudedindisaster [Profile] 2013/6/22 - 16:36:24
Seriously wonderful. AMAZING job on everything really! But it's the coloring that really makes this whole thing totally pop. :)
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/22 - 17:14:24
Geezum, your dragons are gorgeous! :D
amyd [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 0:1:45
This is wonderful! I love every thing about this especially those spines and that eye is just amazing! This is very well done.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 20:16:48
I like the shape of this one, and the spines are really cool. I like the belly scales.
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 20:58:49
This may seem like a bold statement, but your dragon heads are as good as Neondragon's in my opinion. My suggestion to you would be to try for detail like this on the rest of a dragon's body. Also.....that's my favorite part, I mean look at it it's incredibly realistic, it looks shiny and moist, and like a real eye, as if it actually has life in it.
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 16:39:55
Thank you all very much! I would do the whole dragon, but that takes forever XD and I never feel like the canvas size is bigger enough on here. I really appreciate the comments :)
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:19:55
this is so incredible digi @w@
i will never understand how you can do so much detail in your drawings.

Well this was going to be a realistic looking picture but when I gave it a shot... i wasn't feeling the water tool so I went pen style for a change.
I saw that a Steam Punk contest was up and running and I was like,"Hell yeah"~ so I drew this fella up. I had to google steam punk for some inspirational help and the accessories that popped up were so cool looking!
I worked on it for two hours cause I did start one way and ended this way x.x;;
The coloring is a little sloppy now that I over look it... darn...

theroguemind [Profile] 2013/6/21 - 19:38:7
I think it's fantastic. I like all the accessories, especially the hat and the monocle (on its left eye right?)
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/22 - 10:43:1
Wow, that outfit is awesome! Call yourself in! I love the little details, like the key and the pouch :)
shroudedindisaster [Profile] 2013/6/22 - 16:46:26
Very cool! He's got a whole buncha good stuff going on :) Love the background and I think he works well with the way you colored! Also really dig how you did all the line for the fur and such
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:20:59
i agree, those little details are really nice to look at =w=

In other news...Tongues!
I suppose this is lineless practice. I remember I did a similar albeit purple thing like this last year. C&C much appreciated.

[anon]labyrinth 2013/6/21 - 14:38:55
Wow, this looks awesome!
Sorry, I hope you don't mind me C&C-ing (I don't comment very often here).
Anyway, you may want to make the base of the tongue (where it enters the mouth) a little smaller. Also, maybe don't fray the edges out. To give it a wet look, more white highlights might help, but not too many.
That's all I got. Hope I've helped!
theroguemind [Profile] 2013/6/21 - 14:46:13
zanik_dragon here ~ Thanks for the tips, you're absolutely right. I should have made it fit the mouth better and saliva would have been awesome :)
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:26:54
this is just.. beautiful
i cant think of how else to put it
everything is so etheral about this dragon... it is beautiful.

Entry for the steampunk contest! This is obviously a steampunk dolphin.....which I drew because they're my favorite animal, and I wanted to draw an aquatic animal because you don't see steampunk fish/porpoises that often. And I guess it's evil. And made of various types of metal. And sorry about the tail not fitting.

C&C please? :D

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/20 - 7:8:58
Very cool steampunk dolphin!! I like the shading on the metal parts and the way you made the sections of the tail look.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/20 - 13:25:30
Wow, this is awesome! I love the glowing eye :) You are definitely in!
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:27:52
cool AS!! i dont know how well a robotic dolphin would work underwater but that is seriously cool
the shines are really convincing. great work.

Behold, the greatness of my interpretation of: Captain Albert Alexander (A famous sailor as sang by Steam powered Giraffe. See here for more details- [link] the song starts at 1:35)
This is my entry for the Steampunk contest. Fingers crossed its decent enough to place.
I'm rather pleased with how this came out, and i believe this suits the lines of the song:
"Albert stood at the stern of his ship,
a giant Octopus had him in its grip,
and sharks and electric eels all made the trip,
to see Albert, sink to the bottom of the sea..."

C&C much appreciated

pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/19 - 18:21:7

<3 Captain Albert Alexander, that band, and that song.

I like the green spots on his face where it oxidized....that's what it's supposed to be right? That ship wheel looks good, as well as the lighting...and well pretty much everything. oh good he has a mustache. Well, don't get too excited yet, cause I'm still entering. ;)

pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/19 - 18:25:35
My deepest apologies for commenting twice in a row, could you perhaps draw Rabbit or maybe The Spine for me? :DDD
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/20 - 13:26:43
Oooh, this is cool :) I like the face, and the giant fish behind him. You're in!
wolven [Profile] 2013/6/22 - 11:40:54
Its a giant octopus, that had Captain Albert Alexander in its grip. Glad you guys like, and yes Puma, i would be happy to draw any of the members of steam Powered Giraffe for ya! :)
Thanks guys!

arya [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 7:56:25
well i left this on overnight, so i defiantly did not spend 13 hrs on this. about an hr, actually. anyway, many people say that I my men that I draw look too feminine? and most people say "she" when reffering to my art, and I always have to point out that its a man. can someone please point out what parts look feminine? It confuses me a bit.

shroudedindisaster [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 10:31:9
Hey! I don't know if I've seen your stuff really, I'm newly active, but this guy doesn't look too feminine! I think maybe if many of your characters have long hair and defined lips like his though that may be confusing the gender. Very cool though, I really like all the warm colors and the intensity of him overall!
arya [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 11:28:30
Thanks :D and ya, most of them do have longer hair, i have a hard time drawing anything short unless its in profile view. welcome to the boards, by the way. :)
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 12:13:4
Usually one of the bigger factors of determining whether its a guy or girl (besides the mouth and eyes) is in the jaw/cheek bones. Because elves have narrow or angled cheek bones like girls, its sometimes easy to mistake them as girls. A good way to counteract this is in the other two factors: the eyes and lips. You got both down in this picture (which looks awesome by the way), and it looks like a guy to me. However, maybe having the narrow jaw bone combined with another factor that accidentally looks feminine is whats was causing confusion in your other pictures? Hope that helps :)

skullzhead [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 12:18:15
Hahaha, I can't even classify my own drawings of men as too feminine or not masculine enough. I just think if it looks good, it stays. I like- no love- your style, and I find this particular guy handsome as heck. >//<
arya [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 18:25:18
@kestrelflight: oooh I see. Most of my characters have elven features (thin faces) so maybe thats why... Thanks for the tips ^^
@skullzhead: Thank you, I've been working really hard on my style :D
shroudedindisaster [Profile] 2013/6/21 - 11:26:31
No problem and thank you :D
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 21:13:52
Your art style is like mine, I only draw guys with long hair usually. Also, this fellow here looks almost exactly the same as one of my characters......which I find to be very interesting indeed. What if our minds are connected? O.o Just kidding...

But here's a link if you want to make a comparison... [link]
wolven [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 6:46:16
Pumadragon, keep yer subconscious under control if you please. jk

I think this is pretty cool tbh, and i can see how some might see your characters as effeminate. Wha you need to do i think, is give your male characters a bit more of a traditionally masculine touch. so... what i mean by that is, to make the masculinity a bit more visible, so like the 'adam's apple' for example could be a little more defined here. They ('we' rather) often have broader/heavier/hairier eyebrows and more defined jawbones. Even better, stick in a beard of sorts, or even stubble. Beards are awesome. I don't know why so many girls don't like them. Thats just a few things that could be done methinks.
But i really quite like this.The hair has a nice flowing texture to it, but i think a little more definition and highlights might help the look.
Overall, v nicely done.
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:30:26
nice work. the others said what i was going to; give their advice a listen.

I've never actually seen it, but I could recognize it right away! It's White Collar! Amazing job! ;A;

Everin: Neal gives you his regards.
Arya: Na' your awesome.
Dreyacira: The chain was one of the last things I did besides the empty cuff. I'm glad it turned out ok because I just wanted to finish it and be done with it by that time.

Hi every one! Haven't been on in a long time cause of college ha! If anyone remembers me from drawing the elemental unicorns (with the bent horn) lol. Any way this is Naru and she is my newest Mermaid character. She was a bit difficult to copy off of my original so i just kept the shape of the tail :P Ugh the background is a bit sloppy but I didn't want to take away the focus of Naru and her color. I hope you like her!
C&C please :3

[anon]als 2013/6/16 - 6:31:24
Oh, I really like her pose. It isn't an easy one to pull off, but you did well. I especially like the way the tail is curving in the water, it's beautifully done.
miku8mycupcake [Profile] 2013/6/16 - 9:52:23
Thank you so much!! And it didn't take me 9 hours. I had left the page open while doing stuff haha! If anyone can give me some tips on how to create water/ translucent effects it would be greatly appreciated cause I have no idea how to do that ha!

arya [Profile] 2013/6/18 - 7:58:0
that pose seems so difficult! you did an awesome job though!
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:32:35
i feel like ive seen this before.. is this a remake of an original?
anyway as the others said you pulled off a really difficult pose really well. and that hair is fantastic.

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.

skullzhead [Profile] 2013/6/13 - 23:23:50
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.

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

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?

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.

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.
