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.
I like the still life of the light. Seems like you are able to draw fantastic dragons left and right, truely. But there is somthing great that happened when you drew that still life of that lamp. keep it all comming!!
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!
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
