Colors got messed up. Didn't take all but 31 layers and a bit of procrastinating.
I'll have less trouble syncing photoshop with my monitor once I can buy CS.
All those sleepless mornings will be worth it

Think I might've found my style. I tried to stay as loyal to "vivid" as possible, meaning few shadows and lots of fading
Full View Please!
-_- it was so much more impressive in elements...

Edit: okay, okay. fewmets...shit. This one's getting fixed. I didn't think this would be that bad

I've been referring to Luna's petpage for YEARS to help me develop my dragon-drawing skills.
This drawing has taken me from scribble-doodles to the style I have today.

Keep up the amazingness. Love it.

Im sorry sweetie...but the colors on this are just...balh...I feel like it clashing in a way with your line work and its actually making me not want to look at it.

I hope you dont take offence at this Hun, i dont mean to be mean...its just how it makes me feel.

aspen-untamed Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2006
of course not! What would you recommend? Is it the colors or the lack of shading/highlights?

TKorca Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well Hun....when i first saw the nine work for this the colors to me, that would really go well with it...would have to be a sort of dramatic intence style. With sharp highlights and varying shades letting become three demensional. The colors as is now...dont do your wonderful line work justice at all. I would like to see much more dramatic use in the dragon itself. I liked the background and its cool warm tones better then the dragon itself and i dont think you were really going for that were you?

hmm...almost. It's got the same feel to it, along with the spikeyness. I've been watching jennadelle for a long time, so the inspiration might've came from her dragons.

Looks great to me! But I'm not quite as high on the artistic talent spectrum as you, so maybe I just don't notice what it is that you dislike about it.

...Fewmets? Read the Pit Dragon trilogy, have we? ...????

:iconaspen-untamed:
aspen-untamed Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2006
aw it doesn't matter. As long as viewers like it, I'm a happy zebra. :) Don't know what it is. I guess people don't like it looking so flat?

mmm...can't say that I have. I saw it in "A wind in the door" or one of those books. I've seen it somewhere else too. Not a common word, though. "Dragon droppings" kind of rolls of the tounge in a satisfying way :3 Thank you so much ^_^

Hmm, I haven't read any other books that have had used "fewmets" as a regular part of the dialouge XD I thought it was only specific to the Pit Dragon Trilogy. I've learned something today.
