Oh it isn't even nearly done yet xD I just haven't gotten much of the background done yet~
There's gonna be a fully grassy/rocky hill he's standing on aaaand... I bet it's gonna take a LONG time xC I've never done a background that'd be even nearly as advanced as this one is! D8 *panic*

This was supposed to be a sketchcomission but since I had already disappointed the client once before, I decided to really do something worth the money. So I shaded her.
Finished quite some time ago.
Let's see how long it'll take me to get something more done... I just feel so devastated right now by yesterday's events...

Okay, so first off, awesome dragons, that "kaekunzai" think blew me out o the water. The lines in your creatre/figure drawings give me a great sence of gestalt.. that's to say that they feel really whole and in-tact, and define the space they exist in. But enough compliments, that's not what sketchin is about!! Draw some scenery or enviroments with as much careful observation as you've given characters and you'll really be on to something, I get this feeling like ... "well darn, I guess my characters have to exist SOME where".. For example: that grey-purple dragon 3 posts back standing in the grass. you don't have to have a field of evenly spread grass texture to get the grass idea across, it's just way to busy and distracts like hell from that critter, presumably the focus. If you could get the ground to feel like a receding plane, and not a textured shape it would do wonders. Compositionally that horizon line just takes you right off of the page, maybe having his head/neck break that up.. or having the greatest amount of contrast exist somewhere else? It seems like the peice is flirting with the idea of being a painting, but it's some kind of strange drawing/painting hybrid. Please mess around with the blurryness/ sharpness of your edges. It's like you've got some really nice constructed shapes going on that are flattened by the inconsancey between the subject and the environment. That may be why that earlier dragon post rocks so hard, cause youve got nice colour choice and subtle texture to carry that nice line drawing.
On an entirely different note: space can look much cooler than a black plane with some white dots play with some dark colors that aren't black, you can get some great effects! Look at some photos of space, it can be super-beutiful. In that last post, the coloured lineart on black looks really good, but the way the earth in the character's hands is rendered spoils it abit for me. It's just soo bright and smoothly rendered in such litteral colors, it's exactly what you'd imagine! On the plus side, the yellow-green conture lines, with that red in the interior is very nice. Did you stumble upon those colours while playing around with some photoshop or was there some pre-conceived idea? Please keep posting, and talk some about your process

Thank you for the comment C:
Yeah, I've got that problem with the backgrounds, I always mess them up one way or another. Like in the picture with the gray dragon (I just drew a lot of grass, then copy/pasted it all around the picture because I was too lazy to do it the proper way).
And thanks for all the suggestions I'll try messing with the smoothness and such when I get back to drawing -will take a while, I fear :C
Oh the lines in the last picture? The green outlines were a friend's idea but the red was mine. I tried god knows what to get at least some shapes shown and finally got the reds there. Had done a picture with the red linearts on black before and knew that'd look a lot better than any of the other options.
And the globe.. Yeah... :/
Well, on the plus side; I know what to work on more

Ahhh, ConceptArt, how have I missed you! I've been off for more than a year now and have returned to try once again, just that this time I'm going to take it more like a grown-up than a child who thinks that posting a silly little image here will automatically grant me all the critique in the world.
With that being said, I greet you guys once again.
