    Here are some dragon head sketches, anything look promising to you? Haven't checked out COW in months, a little late to the game but I will try!

    This is so utterly butterly awesome, love the transparent belly, strange that the burger she's eaten looks like a small dragon....just joking , such amazing design and beautiful beautiful painting skills. You have inspired me to pick up pencil and just dive in with an idea or two. Thank you much.

    I gave the Turtley Dragon a body....I don't know if I would call this a dragon...maybe ill add some wings but he looks mighty fat to be doing any flying.

    SummerTheBummer: Definitely number your concepts next time to make it easier for people to suggest what is what. I liked all your concepts and couldn't resist rendering them out as value studies. I think they all have potential based on how you assign them to the topics and elaborate more on the cause. Really nice drawings man, have fun, and good luck.

    some progress......I think this looks better as far as the dragon being more colossal.

    I am glad you liked my dragons enough to want to take the time to do that! I will make sure to number my sketches from now on! 1. and 2. I was definitely thinking air element and 4, 5 and 6 are water element but they don't really feel grand enough to be DRAGON LORDS, they look like normal/lesser dragons to me. I am going to draw some more, with some ancient-ness.

    Yes this scale does make him feel much more colossal! I really like your wizard and brushy bit in the corner.

    Welcome Gee! Great start, my only suggestion would be to consider eye placement and head shape. It can make or break a design. Looking forward to your entry, and I'm assuming you were referring to my dragon with the transparent belly?

    Oh, I meant to show you a paintover for that as well. Not exactly a paintover, but an escalation of your design and how position of features and the overall silhouette can make a huge impact in the power and intention of your creature. So, what I did here was take one of your ideas, expand upon it, in expression and the silhouette, then push that even further in the third one to really get a sense of how menacing this guy could be in a smooth operator kind of way. So I thought of a snake.

    Wowee! I love what you've done with the head here, it amazing!! You have given it such personality and menace. I am having trouble with getting my messages and posting to appear on this site, its most annoying and a bit of a major handicap. ( I'm not even sure when or if this posting will appear, it seems to take about a week for some things to show up ) Also I am a noob on here so am still learning sense the posting relating to you wonderful dragon painting not being linked to your image, sorry about that.
    I took your notes and applied them , or should that be tried to on three heads of my own , it was fun but hard work I suppose it gets easier the more time you do it. I am really really grateful for your kind help. I did want to ask what brush do you use and also when approaching the design do you splurge down a broad shape and work into that or do you start with an eye or a mouth placement first?
    Again many thanks for your pointers, I aim to get there and be joining in these COW challenges. In the meantime I hope these issue with the ability to post are ironed out , is it because I am new and everything has to be okay by a third party before they are allowed up? Anyone else facing these problems? It can be very off putting not being able to communicate freely. I did post three other dragon images and I have no idea why they never appeared or if they even will
