Sacred Stone Dragon -Outcast Odyssey contest entry by Adorael Sacred Stone Dragon -Outcast Odyssey contest entry by Adorael

Please support me through Patreon so that I can create more personal art and you can get special rewards!

This is was suppose to be my entry for the outcast odyssey contest, but since I didn't have much time I drew until the last 10 minutes and when I tried to submit everything stood in my way!!! WHY??? Mozilla crashed, the damn dA submission requires shit loads of info, a title and a file is not enough! :C And when I tried to submit the contest was closed... I should have known it takes half an hour to submit to dA, and I wanted to participate so bad!!!

I need a hug :((((


Apparently more deviants had the same problem, probably due to many deviants submitting in the last 10 minutes. So dA's madizzlee was kind enough to move my submission to the Outcast Odyssey contest category, thank you so much madizzlee!!! :hug::hug::hug:

And thank you all for the hugs and nice comments, they really cheered me up :iconaawplz:

A great piece overall! The only thing I see is the further the picture is, the less definition is there. You focused on the face completely and its totally the eye catching piece. The background, body, and detail could have had a tiny bit more dedication. A bit more shading, a neat tidy up, or perhaps even a more detailed area of the mossy texture rising up the tail. I can't find anything damaging this piece, just a few tiny flaws! However the overall art is amazing! 9.5/10 rating and two thumbs way up! Keep up the great art works.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
128 out of 131 deviants thought this was fair.

If one day someone decided to draw up a classification of the Dragons, this surely would own a place right among the heavyweights!
Its stocky and heavy body expresses its rocky nature and Crystal ridges give some pride and grace to the entire figure. The band (I don't know the technical name) around the neck, which gives a sense of sacredness and typical of oriental mythological figures is a good idea to put some curvy line in an edgy creature. In the end this is overall a good work, with an intelligent use of colors and lines. With some others details it would have been excellent.

I'm fairly sure that this dragon here is a guardian of... something? I have no idea, but it's probably an ancient artifact of some sort.
Either way, this is pure awesome!

awesome Dragon Realm/Worlds . thats great : ]

Orange and blue is a strong colour combination, and the dragon radiates raw, primal power. He looks like he's been born out of the Earth itself in its ancient days.
The only thing I could find to be a mistake is that the front legs look a little bit thin for holding up such a massive body, but other than that, it looks fantastic in all respects!

nice !

I saw this when you published it last year, amazing piece.

You used a variation of brown and you weren't afraid to give his grand beast a clay orangey color  and work it to urn advantage to make it seem like actual rock.

The blue jagged spheres were a great addition

I couldn't make a piece anything close to this so I wont critique. I hope to see you make a bigger, better monster, challenge your skills ! :D
