Well I could have done better on this but I got tired of working on it.

Anyway this is my part of the art trade me and Wolven did. So I requested that I draw Daedrid in return that he draw Lucky, cuz ya know ive never seen him draw a cat. hee hee.

I almost let this sit for a week and it would have been lost so I decided to come home and I just got so tired and stumped at what to do on this.

And no it didn't take that long, I left it open for a while trying to think what to do with him.
...and the right arm bugs the crap out of me.
soooo.. night NDA.

wolven [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 6:53:15
As i said on DA, I really really like this. (I also just watched the animation, and i had to laugh when you changed the wings to hands halfway through. lol).
You really got the alienness in him, thats for sure, and i really like his ose too. The hands thing i can see how it might be troubling. They are supposed to be quite... bony i guess, with bulbous fingertips, like traditional aliens. I've noticed the wings, and I really quite like them.
Seriously, if you ever want me to draw anything for you just say the word. (But please, no cats. Lucky is an exception, and a rare one at that.)
Thank you again! :-]
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:7:58
wow, it's so cool seeing wolven's character in your style
nice portrayal of him.

I couldn't draw Balkailius without drawing his counterpart/rival, Wynderion.

[anon]lemmy 2013/6/24 - 21:35:32
I love those little feathers on Wynd's wing. He looks so solemn here.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 13:43:2
wow wow wow wow wow !!!! :D
I really like this. The red background works well with the white dragon, and the feathers on the shoulder are also brilliantly drawn!!! Keep up the good work!
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:9:44
everything about this is lovely =w=
i think the white coulr use some deeper shading though. it seems like it contrasts too much against the red
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/7/1 - 14:16:27
Thanks guys! Thank you for the crit, Miles, I'll keep that in mind for next time!

Aw yeah, 'nother dragon head. This time it's Lumbrah, in his earthen form.

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 20:10:31
Oh he's so cute!! I love the shading on this, his mane especially. I want to pet his cute nose. Shiny antlers!
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 17:22:14
This one is so elegant, and those whiskers are great.
[anon]foxphantom21 2013/6/25 - 20:47:5
This is pretty creative, love how the eyes and scales are. :D
bonbon [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 10:36:34
wow your style is really awesome
this is a cute dragon holy moly!!
the whiskers and the nose and the eyes and the soft colors really pop out DAW
it has qualities that arent so dragon-like but you can totally tell that lumbrah's a dragon. this is adorable!!!
catgirl [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 13:6:0
Oooh, I really like this, all the shines! And the pretty mane. And that lovely 3-D ear.
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:10:22
what a beautiful dragon *w*
that nose is especially lovely.. ahhh i could stare at it forever :D
[anon]geckodragon 2013/7/1 - 10:23:52
I love his face sooooo much!!! i want to snuggle him!!
[anon]haven214 2014/5/14 - 7:32:40

Dragon head (and gorgeous chest *swoon*) for the taking collection. He turned out to be more of a pretty boy then I originally intended. I actually sketched this guy out beforehand in color pencil a week ago [link] and I decided he deserved a second chance. C&C welcome.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 19:21:42
all these heads! I've got to get java working I have to draw one >.<
This is magnificent! I love how all the colors are blended together, like the subtle red and yellow colors. You work magic with the pencil! :)
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 20:19:25
Oh, I love the colors, and I really like the horn's shadow on the dragon's face.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 21:50:56
It's really cool how you got an almost colored pencil effect. Really pretty colors!
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 7:1:13
Thanks guys :D
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 17:20:13
I agree, it does almost look like color pencil. Really lovely! And you color pencil works are awesome (I'm no good at color pencil)
catgirl [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 13:11:13
Oooh, his colors are so pretty and bold and shiny. Lovely work. I agree, too, lots of great colored pencil like texture.

I think the highlight line on his neck would benefit from picking up the color and scribbling it back and forth a little bit to match the texture on the rest of him better.
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 16:55:7
Dididragon: Thank you! Also, you really should give color pencil another go!!!! Its a lot of fun and it doesn't take up a lot of time like oil paintings do and still look very nice. Its one of my favorite mediums (and dare I say it here least I get assassinated -better then graphic drawing ;)
Catgirl: It didn't occur to me to do that. Thanks. I do want any extra color and texture I can get in there :D
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:11:40
i thought this WAS coloured pencil at first!
amazing work.. these colours are just brilliant.
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/30 - 20:16:6
Thanks Miles! I think the color-pencil look might be my style whether I intend it to be or not. Don't know if that's a good thing lol.

Another dragon head for the growing hoard!

lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 20:20:12
Yes! Moar dagrons. I really adore the little ornament hanging between the dragon's horns.
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 17:5:38
This one is cute ^^ Nice use of red and blue ;)
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:12:10

Digi demanded Dragon heads, so heres my first ever dragon OC, Daedrid.
Most of youse know him by now as a big black alien dragon thing without eyes. He's pretty fearless and his attitude to life is that its all a big ol' joke, so laugh. his saliva is like acid but gives precious gemstones a flawless sheen when dunked in it. it can burn through just about anything as well, so mind yer fingers.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 19:22:27
ooh, I like the horns :)
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 16:55:57
I think I remember this guy, very cool. I too like the horns, and the space background is neat.
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:12:49
wow so cool :D those horns are lovely. but i think they lack the same shading that the rest of the body has.. so they stand out a lot 0:

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 21:55:37
Digi commands dragon heads! We must obey!

Balkailius. I still feel like I don't know how to use my tablet properly. I messed around with the pressure settings a lot. Balkailius is one of my older characters, from back when I liked to come up with awesome (weird) names.

lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 22:11:26
Balkailius has the best name because it is fun to say. I really like how you did the lighting on his mouth! It looks super cool and smooth.
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 8:29:19
Well hopefully I can soon obey the commands....this is cool, I like black and white dragons.
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 16:54:22
Awesome! I like how you colored the skin all smooth. Nice profile view as well :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 7:47:6
Thanks guys!
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:13:19
that neck
is beauutiffuuullll

It's Adventure Time!
Adventure time style self-protraits are the best if you're lazy like me. No shading or noses! Yay!

[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:13:53
this is the cutEST THING
i love the way you mimicked the style, you got it spot-on :3

Digidragon commanded dragon heads. So here's a dragon head.

Eidunno is one of my oldest characters. (Surprisingly he still looks very similar to his first design.)

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 19:41:56
I recognized him!! So cute, I love his giant ears.
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/6/24 - 19:11:40
I haven't seen him before, but his eye is very awesome!!!! Love the earrings too :D
digidragon [Profile] 2013/6/25 - 16:47:7
I love the structure of the face. And the flat colors look really nice.
catgirl [Profile] 2013/6/26 - 13:13:1
nice! I like how you made the golden color stand out and look so bright.
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:14:37
ahhhh fuzzy dragons
i dont see very many of them so it is always a pleasure when i do =w=
i love the way you did the lines, they're lovely

I was gonna go for a space themed angel, but I decided to go with an Aurora Borialis (however you spell it) theme. I became a bit tired because it is almost 1 a.m. haha!
Anyways this is Soar and he is the angel that paints the Aurora through out the Northern parts of the world, As you can see his wings carry the many colors seen in the Aurora. Hope you like him! :3 C&C please!

arya [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 8:23:5
I looove the glow affect and colours of this! its beautiful!
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/6/23 - 19:4:56
I really love this concept! It's beautiful and I can imagine a scene of Soar painting the sky. Your wings structure is really good.

As for a bit of crit: on the rightmost wing, the primary feathers are "above" the secondaries, however the secondaries should be the ones "above" the primaries. You've actually got the most of the feathers layered correctly, but somewhere between the wingtip, and where the secondaries meet the primaries is where the layering gets mixed up.

(I hope that made some sort of sense!)
[anon]miles 2013/6/30 - 4:19:23
ohhhh that glow is soo pretttyy

"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=
[anon]sacer 2013/7/6 - 13:5:57

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.
