Thanks to big brother for giving me loads of advice and tips while updating this dragon rider, especially on the colour choices. Your help has been immense.

Something I took from my bigger scene, I changed (tried to improve) a lot. I kept the drawing and detail the same. Change the colours and depth. I removed a lot of the redness.

It looks like he's PART of the dragon... Though you get an extra point for the detail of the dragon's head.

Great work! So detailed

Well, it definately is done well, but for some reason, the wings seem in a strange, awkward location. It'd be better if they were a little more equal to the body's axes.

The palette looks more natural and well chosen now.  Goes together much better.  Nice work.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

I prefer this palette to your last. it gives it far more depth, nice job.

Thanks for the comments.

Wolverine: I edited the red slightly to allow for more contrast between it and the murky brown.

I admire your skill. The big brother influence is visible. Awesome piece.

The scaly-ness is totaly rockin, but I gotta ask, how many hours did this thing take?

5/5 & FAv once AGAIN WOW! Truly inspires me!

The clouds look great and go really well with this piece. The colours give a beautiful tone to your piece too. Keep it up.

Great work, but I think that the sky seems to be an odd ocean. The wings and the tail seems to be in the same plane. I paint the dragon tail in a bit paler tones to create a third perspective plane in the character: plane 1: the dragon head and the demon, plane2: the dragon body and plane 3: the tail. But is a really great work in the end. CARRY ON, boy!!!

I like the general artwork here but I don't like the colors much at all.  The one I have a problem with most is that murky brown.  To me it flattens the image as it doesn't seem quite dark enough to work as a darktone to the red next to it and makes it look a lot like one of my many failed attempts at painting when I was at school.  Has that dirty paint water look about it.  The pink tone used to highlight areas just seems a bit offputting compared to the red too.

Vanishing pixels hohoho ^o^.v,,

Dark Rogue (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 8/22/2006 08:21
Yeah, seriously, all of your stuff is so inspiring. Is it just me, or did you add a fair bit more of contrast on the scales? It looks a lot better =D
