    WIP Reign of Fire

    Hello everybody...

    I was thinking about a dragon's scene just like reign of fire.. a character facing a dragon and I made this sketch in PS!
    It took me around 45 minutes to complete the hole idea.
    Feel free in comments and critics, I wanna paint something really cool and hope you guys can help me!

    Cya!!!

    Okay this can be a really cool piece. Make sure to have lots of smoke in the background and little fires burning everywhere. I might also tweek the head. It looks more wolf like than reptilian dragon.

    Looking better. I would try to slim down the head and make it a little spikier. I also believe the wings are attacked to the wrists on these dragons, if you did that it would also cover up some of the back half and help with perspective. Any thought on if the human has a weapon?

    Hey Duman.. I didn't understand what you want me to do with its head.. about the wings I know they are attached to the wrists but it was my intention to paint them this way! (:
    And Yes, the human has a rifle!

    Poor chaps out of his league. I just suggested the wings be attached to his hands because that would cover the majority of his rear half. As you have it now, you can see the underside, but no legs, like his back half disappears.
    Oh, and I just meant to slim the head down. Yours looks more akin to a dinosaur, slimmer heads are often associated with dragons.

    Yes I know they are bad sketches. Its late.

    And I suck.

    Well maybe its just me, but it does seem that the dragon isnt looking at the person in the front. I understand that he is looking in that direction, but it might be the perspective is off a little. I think it would be easier to move the human into the background a little more since you rendered the dragon a lot all ready.

    I think its coming along pretty nicely. Remember that it looks like the dragons eyes are alined near the side so he does not need to be looking right at the guy to see him. I think its about time to start defining this.

    SaintFuse.. thanks for comment my friend.. I think the perspective has some wrong points.. I'm a noob in digital painting.. it's been two months studying and practicing and now I am starting to paint things that I want to.. specially things in my mind and that's the point.. So, I don't know what to do to improve my drawing here.. about the human.. in the background.. maybe if I decrease his size and put it a little more to the left.. I'll try something.. thanks again. (:

    Hey Duman.. thanks my friend... I'm enjoying this and sharing with you guys was my point to have a nice painting in the end.. and I think i'ts working pretty well! (: So, do you think I can start defining from that sketch? As I wrote to SaintFuse, I'll make some changes and I'll put it here in another UP later. Thanks again! (:

    Yes, I think its time to start the defining process and popping some rudimentary colors in.

    whats up man. Just try not to run into too much black in your paintings. If you love how colors pop on top of black look at tinfoils work. He uses black a lot but does it right! Will start helping more when I learn more.
