Smiling Dragon by roxy932211 Smiling Dragon by roxy932211
Just a little something my friend requested. It's still basic and could use some more work, but it came out well in the limited time I spent working on it :)

Media used:
-Colour pencils
-Black marker
-Thin black pen (0.4 and 0.05 width)
-Eraser for lightning

Reference:
-Photo of man with this dragon tattooed on his back (my friend stumbled on it, I don't know where). You should know that this work isn't completely mine, I slightly changed the layout, shadows and added shadows in the bg. It's not traced or anything but the idea of this dragon is from someone else!

Thanks for watching :)

I love how you've presented the scale structure, as well as the shading work and the musculature of the creature. Great work :)

Nah, I'm not doubting myself. btw,again - thanks, I really appreciate your opinion :D But I want to get better, not overnight but.. My work means the world to me and I'm proud on every single piece, not because of quality but because of all the effort I've put into it and it turned out great... but still, my style can't even compare to veteran artists or talented geniuses... Not just yet :D I wish you good luck, lots of motivation and awesome ideas too :headbang: Your art is awesome ;)Keep it up

Hi Could I ask your opinion on something?
I noticed you added the Libra Zodiac to your favorites.( Thank You) Do you think the medieval border is too much. I've been re-doing the whole zodiacs series without those borders in them. I wondered which you liked better with or without.

roxy932211 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Uh, now I'm in a tough spot. I like it the way it is but It'd be cool without the border too... Well just my personal opinion but I like it with a border, which makes the signs looks like cards. But without would probably be cool too. The borders are detailed so it fits with the sign just nice.Although i'd split them up in two folders if it were me "with/without"..

Thank you so much. I really appreciate your taking the time to let me know what you think. In fact they were formated with the borders for my greeting card site Greetings In Motion. I'm really happy to hear that you think they do look like card formats. You just made my day! Thank you for the suggestion to do both.
