Well, WoW was offering a week of free playing time again...
Yeah, I just wish I had a Riding Turtle...
Cookie cutter shark and shark dragon

Don't quit on Blender. It's awesome. Even though I must admit it's excruciating to learn at first.
But also remember not to get TOO inspired into Blender so that you would quit drawing. THAT would suck big time.
Best Blender tutorial sites in my opinion:
Wow, so much great work and creativity in your sb!
I just love the sketches, the animals, the figures, the cartoons, all of it!
Keep up, you’re great!
(Sorry, I don't know why I didn't see this comment when I posted my previous batch)
And no worries, I won't get too sucked into Blender, I didn't really get into 3DsMax either and I can (well, could) actually use that. But now I have some things to test and tutorials to watch next weekend, definitely, so thanks!
Also another colour version:
Did you crop the dragon sketch or draw within that alloted space?
The tube hanging off his neck (making the u-shape) looks like its accommodating the edge of the page, the angle makes it appear as if its actually leaning stiffly towards the viewer. On that subject, what is it actually? the tube I mean, at first I thought it was possibly part of a bridle, but it appears to be coming out of the beast itself?
I know its just a sketch, but thought I'd mention it.
man your cartonic stuff look terribly awesome i really like it , specially the animals part (the happy one ), it would be nice if you keeped working on that part of your art .
i would be glad if you give me a visit to my portfolio and tell me what you think about my art, i do only environments so don't expect to see stuff like yours
keep the good stuff coming
At least with digital, you can expand the canvas...but conversely that started another problem for me...when do you say enough is enough? I've found myself expanding my canvas far more than what I originally intended, I guess the solution then is to adjust the ratio of the line/image itself...bad habits.
Lovely horse study.
As for the colour image, I feel your frustration, strong contrasting lighting against a dark background can work so well most times, but occasionally it up and turns on us.
I think there are too many varied colours on the horse and rider, the strong highlight only adds to the problem creating a serious distraction for the viewer. Instead of suggesting and indicating form, my eyes are travelling from one small area of the characters to the next, piecing it all together individually. The orange against the green/blue sky is particularly harsh.
I think its an interesting idea though, would be a pity to waste it, especially with that background. Given anythought to repainting the horse and rider in more muted tunes, such as a tighter palette and chucking the reds and greys out entirely? I don't think enough of the surrounding colours are being reflected on the armour.
Just my opinion though.
