Territory by dschunai Territory by dschunai
here's a dragon that i've painted today. :3
feels pretty good to have something new to show~



critique is welcomed <3

-----------------------------------
[edit I]: added some light edges to the dragon and some veins to the membrane.
[edit II]: rendered the clouds and water a bit more and adjusted the colors slightly.
(old version can still be seen in the steps below)
any more crits? :>
-----------------------------------


took more than 6 and less than 10 hours i think~
original size is 5000 x 4000 px
one layer
steps:

Excuse me! A friend and I are running a roleplaying board. We were wondering if we could use this art piece in our ad, giving credit to you within the ad. We might want to crop it or add text. Is this okay, or no? :>

i always added a new layer on top, so that i didn't mess things up that i drew before c:
when i was happy with the result i merged the layers together till i was finished with this piece :3

Oh wow another fantastic piece of work! c:
Love the pose and colors in this piece, muted earthly tones look really great here. The fins and claws of other dragons on the edges give this piece a lot more of a 'story', overall I really love this artwork! A little bit of critique though, the lighting could be a little bit more dramatic to give the dragon a bit more 'pop' because a lot of the details and form of the dragon is lost in the shadows and rocks. Still a great piece, love the concept and fantastically painted! Keep it up!

i adjusted the colors a bit, though, the area with the rock is now a bit darker. it really helps to look at this image on a dark background, dA's default green is too bright for images like this. :shakefist:

aw, no :blush:
there are far better artist who get less recognition; they deserve a DD way more than me.

Very cool lighting, however having the dragon as a near silhouette causes other things, such as the waves and clouds to stand out all the more. I'd maybe spend more time rendering those out, so they can better support the dragon.
