Hello fellow artists. I've been a fan of this particular forum for a long time and this will be my first shot at submitting something. So here's two ideas, I like both, but both have some issues to resolve before I finalize. Does anyone have any thoughts which works better for the description? My main thing is to do a dragon that doesn't rely on the standard template of a brontosaur with wings. If I go with the one that looks more cobra-like I'll add a body so it fits the rules of the game better....
jouste: awesome idea and implementation!
steve: both of them bloody good! The second might fit more the traditional idea of a lich dragon.
wanwan: looks very meneacing and powerful! And yes, absolutely sure.
Sketch for now.. not sure if I'll finish this one (as per usual).. I might submit the final as line work.. may be.
@Steve.. love 'em both, I couldn't pick between them.
@wanwan.. that is looking flippin' good so far!
@jouste..that is classy stuff
@lkjhgfdsa.. cheers for the process shots!!
SEPU: I like the rendering through the neck and head, and the general paleness overall, one confusing thing though is the wings. Visually I like the way they fit in the composition, but when I try to picture how they'd work, it seems like they're inverted. Maybe some folds near the base where they attach to show they're folded over?
Great work by everyone.
Steve Somers - when she was coming up from the void I was struggling with this wing thing same way - to leave or change them.
I decided that they look too nice on the picture and that she is usually tightly folded anyway(snakelike long body gave me this impression).
Still I'm not sure if I'm not going to put one "folded" dragon, like daughter of big one, somewhere on the final just to clarify any confusion
Here is speedy to show how I worked it out in my mind:
