Well, I crammed to get this drawing done before Sunday, and it didn't quite work, because it's 2 in the morning right now. ^^; But hey, I got it done, yay!

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. :)

Thank you so much! :meow: Yeah, I rather like smooth-looking dragons. Well... I like all flavors of dragons, be they scaled, smooth, feathered, or furred. Smooth-hide dragons are much easier to draw, that's for sure! :D

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 :+fav:. :D

This one is really neat! I like how the foreground is really clear and lined, and the background is less focused. The anatomy of the dragon is really good too. It looks great!

Ooh, now you're getting back into my old stuff. XD

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. ^^;

Like I mentioned on the process picture, I think it turned out well, too.
Working in grayscale like that sometimes feels like cheating. It's a lot of fun, though. :D
