    Smile Savage Dragon (My 1st Colored Piece - EVER!)

    First post here.

    A cute-ish Savage Dragon (i wanted him to look friendly, but he ended looking too young... - the jaw and mouth look fine, but the nose and eyes are wrong).

    I've started attempting to color recently, and this is the first one i have finished... Something pretty simplistic. I did it with the pencil tool on Photoshop - i actually would like to use the pen tool for the shading, but it seems kinda unrealistic right now (i'm still too slow with it).

    I will post something in a different coloring style later this week.

    Thanks!

    Hey, lookin' pretty good that marine creature! His neck's a little too short though. His chin's a little wide for his face. And he's too buldgy. Also, the top of his head is too short - remember when you draw a figure, the eyes are almost exactly in the middle of the face, so, if we were to rotate his head around to where his face was towards us, you'd notice that his eyes wouldn't be in the middle, but would be too high up.

    Really well done. I can barely make out the right arm though, so you may want to highlight his arm more, or something which prevents it from blending with the rest of his body. What age were you shooting for? Because right now he looks mid-20s.

    Yeah, i hadn't even noticed how short his neck was until you brought it up. And about the eyes, it's what i'm the worst at.

    Highlight it with a bigger halo, you mean?

    I was aiming for late 20's early 30's. His eyes and nose look kinda teenagey to me.

    Thanks again!

    I did a quick overpaint to demonstrate what I meant when I said highlight.

    I didn't reflect your style which suffered a little, but you get the idea.
