My first serious illustration of a dragon. This started out as a random speed paint using Leventep's method and ended up like this after around 9hours. Big thanks to nebezial for his awesome tutorials!

Check out my blog for the process!

Это захватывает дух. Особенно цвета, приятные моим глазам, уставшим от яркости. Вы есть молодец, раз создали этот рисунок. 



Добра Вам.

Please share those tutorials, I want to paint like you do!

I just don't believe the surroundings, I mean, for a dragon that size to take a nap just there in the woods?

I don't really have specific links to tutorials but you could start googling tutorials from Nebezial, Danny Luvisi, Dave Rapoza, Maciej Kuciara, James Paick, and so much more. These people have a huge influence on me so better check how they work.

Also, I agree with what you said about the surroundings.. maybe this dragon was on its way to it's sleeping place when it saw something... just making it up.. but yeah.. i gotta think more about those important things XD

Thanks for sharing, I'll definitely start checking upon those authors.

And, I guess a dragon that size can rest anywhere ;]

This is really good. You should join and submit to :iconfuckyouimadragon: They are a quality control group but I think you would get work accepted.

Ncie drawing! I love the pose of the dragon :)
The only thing I like less is the lightning, because the wing gets really much sun, the focus is on the wing and not on his head (I had to search for it a second), which is a same I think!
Keep up the good work :)

Thanks! Actually, you're right about that. This happened because I didn't really plan about this painting. The decisions I made were mostly out of whim. There were a lot of bad ones too but what's important is I totally had fun and the practice I need with scales and lighting. Cheers!

Wow looks awesome. I really like the texture at the skin of the dragon.
Can you link Leventep's method ? I would like to try it.

:icondeivcalviz:
DeivCalviz Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks!

I'm afraid I might have given you the impression that his method is more of a technique. Here's a sample of his work.. check out the rest if you like [link]

The most important part of this way of thinking is by eliminating the white of the canvas from the start using random brush strokes or a random photo, it's easier to find random shapes, colors, and ideas to help you imagine a scene. Hope that made sense.. Cheers!

Realy nice ^_^ Imho there is some inaccuracy with the shadows and his back legs... and his paws... But "it's just my opinion, though. There's really no need to go spreading it around"
Anyway! It's the best dragon in todays posts! =P
Keep up with a good work!
