Comish for :iconwindridres: of the dragon of the same name, Windridres! A lithe and shiny wind dragon, with long wings and a quite long tail...and fins!

I was thinking about frills today...and trying to think up real animals with frills. I mostly thought of fish. And lizards. Fish + Lizards = Dragons? Jk, just a thought.

But yeah...I do really like dragons with frills... And I also like the inside of that wing, and the other wing. Heh, yeah.

This was done...without a ref, heh. I actually tried to look up other pics of Windridres here done by other artists...all with varying details. But I got the colour, so we're good there! *thumbs-up*

Thanks Windridres! Hope you like!

Enjoy!

Here's part 3/4 of my commissions for :icondracona-fin: - this is Ice Elysium, and is a gift for a friend of hers! The next and final piece for her is also a gift for another of her friends, the first two dragons being her own. ^^

Ice dragons! I love the blues on this gal - I tried to really emphasize the shininess and kind of translucent nature of ice, especially old ice like that in glaciers.

Constructive criticism is welcome! Commissions in this style are still available.

Thanks Dracona-Fin! :D

Enjoy!

Here's the gradient-shaded commission for Arashiin on FA of Ara, the epic storm dragon!

Ara was really fun to work on, was great wing practice, and also just reminded me of how much I love white dragons. The white gave me an opportunity to try out some different shading techniques mixed in with the gradients. He also has some subtle fuzz thrown in there with his highlights. ^^

Constructive criticism is welcome! Commissions in this style are still available as well. :D

Thanks Arashiin!

Enjoy! :D

Comish for Tonza of FA of the dragon, Tonza! Look at his colours! So pretty!

I was asked to have his jaws open and claws reaching for the viewer...which is difficult when I want to show the whole body of the dragon in the picture! So I went with a kind of mid-flap position, him leaning forward, neck curled, ready to snap!

His purple maw is pretty fancy and eye-catching as well... So I tried to pump up the highlights around his face and claws to draw the focus of the picture there.

I'm really happy with the shading...and the file size is huge! I'm trying to work on a larger scale, hmph.
Commissions in this style are still available...and will be large. X)

Thanks Tonza! :D

Enjoy!

Part 2/4 of a commission for :icondracona-fin: - this time a gradient-shaded pic of her Glass dragon, Dichroic. ^^

Dichroic is so pretty!~~~ And not as 'difficult' as people claim he supposedly is, don't worry Dracona-Fin. :D I'm used to fancy, striped dragons, and blue is one of my favourite colours, so he was a pleasure to do.

I also tried a little something different on those twin tails - little circles of shading to show off his shiny, glassy appearance. Whaddya think?

Two down, two to go! Thank you Dracona-Fin!
Commissions in this style are still available to anyone interested. ^^

Enjoy!

Comish for :iconnatoli: for :iconrastaban26: - done a couple months ago actually, submitting now as a Christmas gift.

All for the white dragons. Hmm, I can see that this shading style has evolved since I did this piece. Funny. I also think he looks kind of anthro in this pose, don't you? X)

No critiques, please.

Thanks Natoli! Merry Christmas!

He's so pretty - I really enjoyed colouring him. :)

Thank you Dracona-Fin! Still got a few more to go!

Gradient-shading commission for :iconBlue443: of his character Blue Hasia...

So...I really think that this is one of my best pieces to date. I love the pose, I love the blue, I love those wings...those feets. Those wings, the shading, the wings, the colours. Did I mention the wings?

I'm really, really, really happy with how this turned out. I, I can't stop looking at it. D:

What's with these storm dragons?! Omg! People, send me your storm dragons! I will bring you awesomeness faster than a lightning bolt! *tzz-tzz* Constructive criticism is welcome. Commissions in this style are still open. :)

Thanks so much Blue443!

Enjoy! :D

Gradient-shaded comish for SunBlazeWildFire of FA for a dragon for a game he's working on.

Decided to go toward a kind of combination robust/playful dragon, from the refs I was given. He seemed to have a lot of personality. ^^

Also wanted to do a vertical-oriented pose since I always do landscape poses to make room for those big dragon wings! X) I really like how he turned out - I was a little on the fence for redoing the lines or not, what-with his interesting details and then the big paws, but the shading is always so epic and makes the piece so I couldn't imagine it any other way. ^^

Commissions in this style are still available!

Thanks SunBlaze!

Part 4/4 of the commissions I took for :icondracona-fin: ! All finished! Like the last guy, the ice dragon, this dude is also a gift for one of her friends. ^^

This guy is Gravity Savtir, and is distinguished by his jagged edges and dark colours... I kept thinking of him as a volcano dragon due to his colours and the bright bands, which remind me of embers, especially how bright they turned out. I also wasn't sure of his pose at first, but with the colours and shades, I love it! It's so dynamic!

Constructive criticism is welcome! Commissions in this style are still available.

Thanks Dracona-Fin! :hug:

Enjoy! :D
