Dragon Watchers by DeivCalviz Dragon Watchers by DeivCalviz
I really pushed myself to make this new piece. It's a rare chance for me to be able to make something personal in this level of detail. Took 32+ hrs. This was a mixture of 3D, photobashing and a lot of painting.

Amazing,

I bought the high res version with the tutorial. I'm not very creative with photoshop but I appreciated the work done as the videos show how much effort was involved. :happybounce:

This is just stunning! At first I was just amazed without zooming in a bit, but when I did it was even more amazing!
Seeing artworks like these almost gives the feeling that you're there, and it really is like going on a journey!
Thank you for sharing your artwork! You're inspiring so many by just uploading your works <3
May I ask for how long you've been drawing?
How long it took for you to get this good? :D

Myself I can only draw in a pretty basic anime style xD
But the past few weeks I've really been wishing that I could draw kind of like this- So I'm going to try and teach myself ^^!
Wish me luck!

( Once again, this is really awesome! Thank you for uploading ! )

Thanks Poinii! 

Makes it all worth it when people like you have nice things to say. :)

I have been drawing since I was a kid... but it wasn't anything serious. I began to take it seriously when I was around 20 yrs old after graduating college..  No I'm 28 and still at it trying to improve.

Don't worry about anime style.. I started with anime too before I eventually studied the basics like anatomy, perspective, etc. You can definitely do it! Just keep studying! Don't worry about copying other people first, that's the best way to learn. Just be honest to other people if it is a copy or an original. I used to copy a lot of anime and other master paintings. Just keep it up and you will improve in no time! :)

This is so amazing! The background is simply breathtaking! I struggle with landscapes and backgrounds a lot, making them look convincing is really hard. Do you think there are any tips you could give me regarding what to focus on or how to study landscapes effectively?

Thanks a lot!

I will recommend to study perspective first... Start with one point perspective then two then three.. use lines to draw buildings, etc to get used to it.  There are so many tutorials online about perspective so just search around. Once you have drawn things using lines. I recommend copying colors from real photos or anime backgrounds. Don't be scared to use eye dropper sometimes (but not all the time!). Then just add details.

It's cliche but I can only recommend studying the basics in art if you really want to get good. Perspective, Value, Composition, Colors, Design, etc

Gosh the details... Just WOW. Looks like a still from a movie scene with sharp features at the bottom left area and the blurred wing of the flying dragon like it's captured in motion.
