    Thanks for the comments. :]

    Here's some... stuff.

    The bird collage was an editorial illustration project for uni.

    Been trying to think more sensibly about dragon anatomy, but I keep hitting a mental wall which roughly translates into - bird anatomy = hard to take a dragon seriously, reptilian anatomy = it looks cumbersome, slow, or like it should be "small", mammal anatomy = looks less daft, but is illogical, dinosaur anatomy = looks like a dinosaur.

    And I've been trying to use corel x productively. I like using it, but don't like the results? The pinkish wolf-like dragon is better. That was with the felt pens brushes.

    Thanks for the comments. Here's some stuff from April and May.

    First two pics are of a flagbook I made for a university project to illustrate a nonsense poem. I choose The Owl and the Pussycat. I should probably put the individual images up at some point.

    Next are a couple of museum studies.

    And Then some prismacolor marker experiments to see what I could achieve with them.

    Next is a digital painting of an abandoned London Underground tunnel. http://www.tubephotos.com/?goto=eust...els&thumbs=ok/

    The last two are illustrations for my current university project. The starting point of the project was one of 3 post-apocalyptic novels, I chose The City of Ember.

    Comments and crits appreciated. Will upload some more recent stuff in a bit.

    I like your animal anatomy and the various shapes you have for your dragons, they don't look generic at all.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Thanks for stopping by HaJiME

    the posing in your dragons is very dynamic, i'm liking the designs too. Any advice i can give would be to study the muscle anatomy, skeletal structure, etc. of animals. This will improve on how your dragons/beasties anatomy by playing off a more realistic anatomy. Hope i made a little sense there, and dont stop drawing from life!

    i do like what you've tried with inks/watercolors

    Thanks for swinging by my sketchbook. I really dig what you're doing with the dragons. They are obviously identifiable as dragons, but they have a unique flare that makes them yours. I really love the watercolor/ink cityscapes you're doing. You're really onto something with those. Keep it up!

    That owl and the pussycat book is really cool! The acrylic is wonderful, and the inks are very unique and special. Everything Troubadour said is bang on. Drawing from life is important! Here's a site that is interesting simply because it shows the anatomy of a generic dragon. If you right click the pic, and they go view image, you get the whole thing. Link Have you ever thought of going into a pet store and seeing if they will let you draw some of the lizards? Maybe you could give a drawing to them as incentive!

    In terms of filling out info for every post, here's the reasoning why. Quite important I think! Link
