Here there be dragons. And not much else. You've been warned! O.O

Random Favourites

Freakin' amazing dragon art done by others. I can only hope to be this good some day. ^^;



My dA account is 5 years old, but I've been lurking around the site for a fair bit longer than that.

DeviantART has always been a site that I come to to find awesome art. It should hardly be a surprise that the art I looked for on here was dragon art. I think I first discovered the site because of a friend who was posting some personal art on here and shared it with me, but I really started to frequent dA when I came across awesome art like this.

Ascent by cryslara

I started building up a "collection" of my favorite art from dA even before I had an account here. If you go through my favorites and go all the way to the last pages, you can see which pieces I favorited as soon as I started my account. This drawing by cryslara was one of the very first. It was then and continues to be today one of my all-time favorite pieces on this site.

It took me many years to create my own dA account for one simple reason: I didn't draw. I didn't want to be on the site without having a reason to be here. Viewing and enjoying others' art could be done with or without an account, but I didn't want my own account to be empty and stale. Even when I did start drawing, I didn't make an account for some time. I wanted to be "good enough" to put my art up on dA. I guess I finally got pestered enough by my friends that I gave in and created an account to upload my first pieces.

Having a Good Laugh by Zeimyth

This is where my dA story also becomes the story of my art. This happy-looking dragon was the product of my first legitimate attempt at drawing. I was 17 at the time. Most artists don't wait until 17 to start drawing! But that's my excuse for why my first piece ever actually looked okay.

Once I finally had an account, I could start watching people. But I wanted to find more great artists. It took me some time to build up the pool of great artists that I watch today. I would spend a few hours every now and then looking through the latest submissions of dragon art on dA. I tried to meet new people through this process, so I commented frequently. Some of those comments have remained unanswered to this day; others have lead to massive conversations filling up the deviation's chats. One of my friends around this time was Orm-Irian. She was a dedicated artist, but still learning to find her style like I was. We had plenty of conversations in deviation threads and notes, and I learned a lot about how to motivate myself to draw and how to look critically at my art for opportunities to improve. Here's one of Orm's pieces from that time.

Together by OrmIrian

Shortly thereafter, I went on my two-year hiatus while I served a mission for my church in the beautiful country of New Zealand. I haven't ever updated any pictures from this time, because my gallery has always been reserved for my dragon art. New Zealand has hobbits, but not dragons, unfortunately... with one exception! And I just happened to photograph it.

Hunting the Wild by Zeimyth

In more recent times, DeviantART has remained a site that I frequent to enjoy others' art and occasionally visit to upload art of my own. I'm really still a budding artist; I don't draw frequently, but, when I do, I draw lots of dragons. I intend to hang around here for quite a while longer. As long as I have the desire to draw and enjoy people's art, you can be sure you'll see the occasional of random dragon favorite or deviation from me!

I actually didn't think you'd come back after two years of an absence. Woulda thought people would forget about their dA after that amount of time.

Found this and I think you may find it useful: [link]
I only skimmed it and some of her tips are similar to what I've pointed out but stated better. xD

I also found this: [link] Although this one uses Painter, which works differently than Photoshop in many ways. Still might be useful, though.

Also love your webcam. Makes me laugh every time. :lmao:
