View Full Version : Dragon Portrait... Suggestions?

04 April 2002, 09:03 AM
Hello again,

Here is a dragon I have had as a sketch for a few years. I recently scanned in the sketch and completed the drawing in Photoshop. I then rendered it against a bump mapped paper in DarkTree Textures (DarkTree Site) ( . Then it was back into Photoshop for some coloring and highlights. I want to expand on my efforts and create some imagery that is more captivating.

Any Suggestions?

This is a nice sketch, though I'm not overly fond of the textured paper.
If you wish to add more of a wow factor to your drawings, then it's usually down to composition and lighting. Put him in a more dynamic pose and make the lighting more dramatic. That'll do it. :)

Dragons... Who do not love dragons? :)

One small crit, though: the ear-thinge looks so fragile with that small connection to the head. I think you should make it bigger.

Are you gonna make a whole dragon? That would be cool in a pose with some action. :thumbsup:
