Vladi's Dragon - Completed by lapis-lazuri Vladi's Dragon - Completed by lapis-lazuri
The complete full-colour version of that homonymous drawing that took forever to complete. The dragon took a lot of work on colouring and smoothing the lines out, so to say, and the clouds were also painted by hand. So, all in all, it took twice forever to complete, but I love it now. :)

Digital painting in Ps CS on a pencil drawing, A4.
No reference whatsoever. No textures either, for there've been people asking me.

Thank you very, very much guys for all the :+fav: and comments! I deeply appreciate your support!

It's obvious here that a lot of effort went into drawing and coloring this dragon's frills and scales! Brilliant work here, man! For an image created without using any references or texture resources, this is really impressive. :heart:

Great Dragon. The only problem I have is that the face is too short and looks too human. Other than that Great Pic!

Yeah, but it's about the same thing: changing the point of view, imagining how things would look from a different one, then paint / describe it in a way it would look and sound authentic.... I think it's relatively the same problem, just a different expression.
