Well, I'm entering another contest. Hopefully I'll be able to carry this one through to completion, I'm not quite as busy as last time round.

Here's the line art. It'll get tightened up some more, so probably another line post before going into the computer for painting.

line art is cool, but what is the quest behind all of this. i cant realy get it :) so i guess something should be done about it :)

In the sketch, I liked how you had started the character. I thought it was going to be a nude or almost nude figure, but now I feel like the soldier looks out of place. Everything else looks very natural (as in, part of nature), and I feel like the soldier throws this off. I think this one has potential but I feel like a more natural approach to the character would make more sense to me. I hope that helps in some way, otherwise you might have a story in mind that will make sense with some description or tweaking of the background.

The line art is looking promising, nice fluid marks. I'm looking forward to some colour though. Do you plan on doing a colour concept before working on this line? :curious:

Another stage of line art, this time in cleaned vector lines. Its not done yet, I've still got to draw the remaining 7 or so dragonfly riders, plus continue modifying the line weighting so its a little more pleasing.
Warpy, the quest is a little undefined in terms of objective, I did that to hopefully have the viewer supply one.
Ramy badie, after I started to tighten my drawing, I also tightened up the composition so the primary rider is more in a visual center now.
Xeophex, I probably won't be doing a preliminary colour sketch, but I will be colouring it all flat to start, so I'll be able to change the base colours pretty easily at that stage. Currently I'm thinking of a lot of greens and blues, reds for accents.
Thanks to all three of you for taking the time to check out my work so far and to post your advice.

Here's the final line art. As you can see, I'm making a more animation/comic style illustration with this one.

I've applied flat colours to the picture, from here I'm still playing with different base colours before moving on to applying gradients, shading, highlights and the rest.
