08 August 2004, 08:27 AM

i don't understand how to post an image here, this is my first attempt(hope i did it right). i've been watching this site, i think is great and i was hoping to get feed back on my work.

this is my first digital drawing. i used sketchbook pro and photoshop. it's not finish but i'm through with it - just like to hear some crit on it so i can move on.

I dont think its any different than any other forums is it :eek: just your link the link has to be directed, directly to the image not the image folder like your link below, the link should end with like the file type .jpg or .gif usually. In your case the link would be not just

I like the textures used on the dragon, but i think the shape looks wierd. Looks like the head of the dragon is in the middle of its body. Is it ment to be fire he is breathing out? if it is i think you should change the colour of it, make it more firey colour, adding reds/oranges, to make it stand out, as you cant directly see it. I no your not finished and might intend to do it anyway but i think if you coloured the fire different colours it would be like the main attraction to the image and look cool :thumbsup:

Good luck finishing it, looks nice.....

i see what you mean. there is a whole lot of neck missing to show the head turning in the direction that it is. i haven't drawn in a while so i've become very inpatient and jumped into painting right away.

as far as the color, i was actually gonna use the image as a graphical piece, but i got carried away with rendering. so to complete what i imagined the dragon would get more abstract and the colors down to two at the most.

thank you for your advice- good stuff to think about. and thank you for helping with the link.

A few things:

-Some parts of the body is low in opacity, making the dragon seethrough.
-try repositioning the head so that the viewer is not confused about where the neck goes.
-Maybe add some more lineweight to the body and the left arm.
-The head looks really good, maybe add the same technique you used on the head to the rest of the body and add scales.

Keep going :thumbsup:

the server i'm on seems to be down, so the images will be missing for i don't know how long.

server is back on- positive and negative comments welcomed.

the following link shows how the dragon might be applied to my website. don't be confused by the navigation, the dragon is not part of the portfolio content, it'll go in a different section. i'm just testing how it might look graphically.

any thoughts will be helpfull.
