Rise of the Dragon by Felox08 Rise of the Dragon by Felox08
Time for dragons. This experiment take me around 3-4 hours.

I Start with a head shot to see how good it could turn out. Originaly was going to be a line art only but i think i over do it haha.

I think the result is fairly good for being the first time. Hopefully i will draw an entire dragon scene.

Anyway , i hpe you like it.

Second try:

Oh my, very well done! I love the textures and layers you created to make this look good! I usually have trouble drawing dragons so I think I can take notes on this! Espcially the snout, teeth and horns. Great job!

a good friend of mine told me " dragons look better when you show imperfections and special features" ( thing i put in practice in the next illustration)
the tiny scales where a pain in the ass but its better to draw your own textures than using images as most of artists do.

Very interesting, I think I would do the same. It shows you put your own work into the piece and it becomes more worth the effort in the end when you can say with pride: "I created this all on my OWN." :)

Thats the main goal (at least for myself) "Auto satisfaction". There is nothing better than the feeling of joy while creating or drawing something.

I really love this one! You made a great job with the colors and textures. I like the expresion of the dragon some kind of grin, and the elegant lines of his head are really very well accomplished, the drawing is amazing the only one thing I have to say is that the "smoke" he has near his mouth/nose looks too much like a brush from photoshop, I would blur it a little more... But despite that I absolutely love the drawing :heart: It's very complicated drawing and it took to you only 4 hours!!! You're amazing!!:jawdrop:

Wow... 3-4 hours for this? I kind of expected a little bit more than that. Especially with the scales on his face and stuff...

This is probably one of the best dragon drawings I have seen on DA. Not only you did manage to put a true personnality in it, but the attention in the details and the work on the shadows and light makes it a truly exceptionnal piece of work.
The colour scheme is muted but never dull, and the deep orange hue of his eye really bring life to him.

In short, I love it, I fav it, and if you accept, I'm going to feature you in my journal.
