Light Shadows by Crazy-Dragon Light Shadows by Crazy-Dragon
my long overdue half to an art trade with *ZhaKrisstol!
This is his character all dark, eatin' the light, ZOMIGAWD nuur nur nur nur.

Very random there but anyway! Inspiration came from a comment Zha made on my 'Fury' image that helped me decide to make this picture demonic in nature.

Normally I don't like simple lighting effects but with the use of the dodge tool, I managed to make it a bit more spiffy IMO.

:devSheWulf: said this and I thought it was pretty cool
"Cast the light into darkness and fear the dragon who caused it."

The lighting effect is great, but what really makes this awesome is how it starts out really sketching and then gets detailed ^^ That and the shading! It's superb :3

I think you did an excellent job with the dodge tool, even though I had no idea you can do so much cool and spiffy stuff with it ^^;
I like the left hand ouuuu, looks nice ;P

Awesomeness XD Anything with a dragon on it gets +15 cool points, so this one rocks by association :giggle:
Seriously though, this is a great example of showing how cool one can make a picture without relying so heavily upon digital help. Great work ^_^

Thank you! Lately i've been sticking up traditional art here because i've had no desire to work on photoshop. The only reason I have gone onto photoshop lately is to work on commissions.

I tend to like doing traditional art myself..though that's not much; just graphite, ink, and maybe colored pencils -___-;; But if I really need to do a lot of coloring, I switch out for photoshop ^_^

The basic lighting effect combined with the dodge tool really spiffed it up, like if you saw how it is normally I don't think it's as good, BUT! I still like how I shaded with the pencil.

Tattoos are awesum! I would create a tattoo for myself, but I would be too picky and I would do the whole 'hold onto it for four years' to see if I still liked it.

Excellent work, sweety. I use the dodge tool often for lighting, and you did an amazing job with it! He better control himself, though. Too much light goes straight to your thighs. D:
