Post [Update] Dragon painting finished

I've been reading these forums for a long time (the new look is clear, I like it), and even registered weeks ago so I thought it's time to post somethin, better late than never

I have several paintings (I always have ) under progress.. and after working an hour or two (a total of about 4 hours) today on this. I'm satisfied enough to post it. I cropped the most unfinished parts away, you'll see them when the whole thing is done.

This is what I've got so far, slightly inspired by LoTR:

The sketch should give you a hunch of how the painting should look ready:

don't think I'm weird, but I like it just as it is. A great character portrait of a dragon. Nice work. Let's see more pieces too. ok, I am wierd, but that has nothing to do with my liking this image... -don

nice work so far. It'd be nice to see some bands of light like you have in the background washing over the dragon as well. It looks like you have started to. It would be cool to see one silouhetted and one lit more.

It's (95%) ready, take a look above. Thanks for the comments, keep 'em coming, especially if you think something sucks in it and you have an idea how to make it better

illustr8rX: Thanks, there's more paintings on my website.

Muckywetnoodle: How do you like it now, any better? (I moved the lights over the head)

TKD: Kiitos

I really like the mood of the first one.
Good work

Very nice! The light brings out your form better now too. One other thing that might help the red in the background is to hint at an entranceway or window/hole of some sort that the light is coming from. Just an idea but it's really cool as is.

ya..

That's nice pic of dragon.....the way it fades out is nicely done. Ed--

impressive.........most impressive......
and your online portfolio is beautiful.
congratulations!!!

The ripper and loganarts: Thanks a lot guys!

Muckywetnoodle: Glad you like the new version better than the old. Putting an entranceway is a good idea, but I think I don't have enough time to work on this piece.. there's so much I need to do, I really appreciate your help!

Eddie: Thanks Usually when I'm doing a pic for something I just shade everything nicely and keep the picture clean. The result looks unrealistic and takes 10 hours to do
So now I'm trying to develop a style that has as little rendering as possible (if I can get single value, texture or gradient to look good I'm very happy) and yet it should look realistic.. saves a lot of time and is hard to learn.

Very nice painting!!

It would be cool to see some more rays of light in the background, do your dragons have arms? (just an idea)

I also saw you site, very nice work, oil or acrylic?

Here's a newer image inspired by LoTR, this time it's an actual location of the book:

Photoshop... cool!! Very impressive, keep up the good work!

Ever try any traditional painting? (oil/acrylic on canvas?)
