Flight of the great white dragon

I just did a quickie to get myself back into photoshop coloring after a rather nasty breakdown of my computer.  I pretty much needed an exorcist to fix it.

Whoa! Real good! I must say I like it alot!
"Beyond the darkness is a door to the light,
A door to your soul...

When darkness falls
Allow the light of your heart to guide you

Hope burns brighter than any star
And will shine long after the last star dies"

I really like it too, Ulario! I especially like the transparency of the wings! Good job.

This one's still a work in progress sketch, but I don't remember the last time that I spent so much time on a drawing... and I decided to show it off just in case I somehow fudged it up.

An Evening Out - Sketch

Heck, I don't even remember the last time that I used three-point perspective in a background.  Pain in the tail if you ask me.  I guess those college classes are finally paying off '<img'>

I'm thinking about adding a design to the wall:  maybe make it look like marble... and possible adding carvings onto the seat.

Any suggestions are welcome.   '<img'>

ooo.. I love transperant wings.  '<img'>

And that sketch -does- look involved. I hope it turns out.

For some reason I keep envisioning that wall as stone blocks. *shrugs*

very nice, I'd love to see it when you finish it '<img'>  '<img'>

Ya know, I was thinking of that... but I don't know how well it would fit because it's in a fine-dining resturant.

I think it's the tables that give that idea... the booths give it an old english taverny feel. In a fine restaurant I would expect to see fancy tables and chairs with pristine table cloths and a small vase with flowers next to a candle.

But it's art and it's what we make of it. Marble still may work out very well... maybe white marble?

I know what you mean by the taverny feel.  '<img'>

Actually, the background (with exception of the carpet) is strongly based by a semi-fine-dining resturant that I went to in Chicago.... Catch 35 I think was the name of it.  It wasn't one of those $50-a-plate resturants... but it was still a lot nicer then any of the places that are around where I live... with exception of that Japanese Steak House.

The Fox Gryphon

I've seen several people draw gryffoxes, so I decided to draw one too.  '<img'>

Photoshop, actually.  I have PSP, but I only use it for a few effects here and there.  I prefer photoshop because it's a bit more refined then PSP.

Nice! I love the spots on your Gryffox (biased) hehe. And I particularly like how you did the hands and forearms.

I always found it difficult to get a beak on a un-bird-like head like that. You did it nicely.


RE: PSP & Photoshop. I had both and I found PSP to be more intuitive and a little easier to learn how to use than Photoshop. Photoshop, however, is far more capable of producing results. There are courses online and off on how to use Photoshop to it full potential, but most charge.

Hmmm... that surprises me.  I thought you'd be one of the first ones to see it since I announced the release of my comic on the forum.

The Resting Drummer

Decatur, Faethe's drummer takes a well earned break during a pre-performance audio check.

I decided to give him his own picture because to me, drummers are the "hidden jewel" of a rock band - they don't get nearly enough attention as they should.

Plus, he's cute... and his tattoos kick butt.  '<img'>

Whelp, I have to take my laptop to the store this weekend to give it a check-up before the warranty runs out.  It's the only computer with Photoshop on it, so I may not have any new finished work between a week and a month.  Grrr.

I'll try and get some sketches/inked stuff up whenever I can, though.

The Black Guardian

The guardian of the black dragons, a dwarven clan set deep in the mountains, perches on top of a large column.

Trying to get a few more pics colored before I take my computer to get it fixed.  


Confession of Feelings

One of those rare times that I do fan art.

I've been obsessed with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic for the last month. I decided to draw a pict of Alora, my female Character who ended up falling in love with Carth Onasi, one of the other people in my party.

I guess I just imagined the scene where he confessed his feelings for her to be a bit different then the game showed. We were on Manaan when it happened.

I'm almost a bit jealous since Carth is extremely sexy (or at least I think so). It was my first time drawing facial hair on an human male.

May do a pict of my male character later.

Kyjja

A freebie commission done for my mate since I wanted to practice both humans and Sci-Fi stuff.  It's his Earth and Beyond Character, Kyjja.  For those of you who don't know what E&B is, it's a online roleplaying universe like Star Wars Galaxies.

I have to make fun of the guy... since I think he looks like a 70s pimp.  '<img'> '<img'> '<img'>

I love the white dragon...and especially how you made its wings kind of tranparent. I dont really see many people doing that.
