This is [link] but digital and colored. To be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to do anything at all with this drawing, but I guess I did. Glad that I did; I kinda like how it turned out.
And, look! She actually has something kinda identifying on her! Yay random green stripes. O.O And a blue muzzle. I wanted to give her some green on the trailing end of her wing, but it wasn't going to work very well. Not with a mouse. >.<
Oh, yeah, as you can tell I look a drastically different approach to this drawing in terms of shading and stuff. It's actually somewhat cel-shaded. I've never tried that before. O.O To be honest, I think I did a kinda lousy job on it, but hey...
Well, this will be either the last or second to last deviation you see from me for a very, very long time (I might submit a progress reel of this one, if I get the time to). Confused? Then you must not have read my journal yet.
This took 20 hours, maybe, over the course of 6 days.
Comments appreciated! Though odds are you won't get a reply, so thanks in advance for everything.
I think one of the reasons this looks so sleek is because I was going for a cell-shaded look, so the shading is very abrupt.
Thank you again for the comment and the .
This is still one of my favorites, I'm still not sure how I managed to do it all with just a mouse. I like how the coloring on the dragon worked out. I've really moved away from this style, though; I try to make my drawings more realistic now and leave out the lines. But looking at this drawing makes me want to try doing more simple, almost-cartoonish drawings instead; they can look pretty good, too. XD
I'm glad you think the anatomy looks good! It's never been one of my strong points.
Working in grayscale like that sometimes feels like cheating. It's a lot of fun, though.
Especially the color of the dragon the darker blue of the snout goes really well with the lighter blue... and I like the stones, but you already know that
Oh.. and the lighting is impressing as well- It's a really, really lovely picture
I'm really glad you like how the colors turned out. That took a lot of work. XD I wanted to do the coloring with filtered layers, but they were being annoying and it took me a long time to figure out what setting to have all of my layers on.
Again, thank you.
Yeah- but I already think this is a huge step into a new era of drawing.. you improve really fast!
A good coloring always need its time, but the outcome will be much better if you just rush with it- as you have proofed here
And she's blue! I'm sure you don't mind that fact. XD
I'm glad you liked the stones. I thought they were too lopsided and fake-looking, but people seem to like them... XD
Thanks for the comment!
