Let's just pretend the debacle with my confusion over rules never happened and this is the only one I submitted to the challenge.

Did a more gruff character this time. One who would begrudge even those he has to give thanks to.

Those blue tints are awesome and combined with a perfect texturing, a very great job

The texture on the scales is wonderful!

Corruption (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/7/2010 12:19

I love how well the red contrasts against the blue!

Kiwi (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 9/2/2010 10:16

 That neck is made of pure awesome *-*

jiipm (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/14/2010 04:41

One of your best works in my opinion. At least palettewise. I can't believe only 19 colors...

versuti (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/20/2009 05:31

Awesome, full of details. +Fav.

I simply could not believe this guy when I saw it.  You have a good chance to win your own challenge!  Speaking of which, I want to thank you again for making portraits the theme.  I'm studying pixel art to make games, so a game theme really got me going.  I hope the next challenge you give is also game related.  I'm voting for this one.

A lot of the inspiration comes from the art for the newer Shining series games, where they all sorts of anthropomorphic whatsits. Usually there's a dragon in there somewhere.

altagu (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/13/2009 11:18

Goddamn, thats just brilliant!

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 7/13/2009 11:09

Kaiseto, your twist on dragons is simply amazing. Here you notice some human attributes which most artists on here wouldn't ever be able to do. Amazing job. 

JoshFTW (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/13/2009 02:10

Simply amazing! I've always like dragons but never been good at drawing them myself, this is just simply amazing.

5/5 +fav.

MFlanaga (Level 4 Ensign) @ 7/10/2009 09:12

Very awesome! Looks like he might be a bit squished by his hip-guards or whatever they are, but then again i guess dragons don't have a set anatomy full pts.!

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 7/10/2009 08:23


No reference. Little bit of inspiration from the Shining series of games, but I wasn't actually looking at any reference when I did it.

TropicalSnowcone (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/10/2009 07:13

Great work. I love Dragons.

newDAN (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/10/2009 05:29

Wow, i like the style. It seems to me like a mixture of a wolf and a dragon. The expresson on the face is exacly as you decribed. Did you paint this one with a foreign reference or did you create your own one?

Qunit (Level 1 Private) @ 7/10/2009 04:28

Thats a beauty :)

The highlight on the chest really added to the shading/

I think u should try higlight the head\fourhead ass well.
