Shikair by grzanka Shikair by grzanka
My part of art trade with *catsandscales. Her species Shikairs . Magnificent dragons :) she did a great part, which you can see here:

sorry you had to wait so long... ^^'
I know that they are red, and orange, but... I wanted to draw something rather monochromatic. I was inspired by pictures of the sunrise in the mountains, when bright light sheds a strong shadows, and distant places are becoming more blue and fuzzy.
I hope you like it, despite the fact that this dragon is not the same as in the references :)

This is probably my last artwork posted here this year. On Thursday I go back to my hometown where I have no tablet or even a scanner.

Even so, Merry Christmas everyone!

I'm digging all the sweeping lines, and I really like the lighting effects achieved here! It gives the picture a warm feel , though I suspect the setting is cold. Very cool!

I love the flow of this piece, the airy grace and the sense of an impending gust from the dragon's wings.

I really love this picture. The empty space really adds more depth to it and makes it feel like the Shikair is popping out of the screen!

Oh, wow, this is just outstanding!! O_O Something about the atmosphere of this picture that surrounds the dragon is both uplifting and idyllic, just seeping with a sort of serenity this dragon might be feeling. The contrast of the colours is wonderfully executed, too, sufficing to give it dimension, and yet despite the odd colour clash, it works out superbly! And the dragon itself; just beautiful. I love its pose, particularly with the wings where it appears to be dragging the clouds along with the tips of the outer fingers. The details were very well shaded, too, and almost makes it look as though it were popping out of the image, even if the overall composition is a little abstract. :)

Anyway, sorry for the long comment, but I thought I'd express myself. I could really learn from the details of this wonderful piece! ^_^ (Okay, I'll be quiet, now. XD )

dziękuję. niestety, nie mogę wyrazić na to zgody - część moich prac przedstawia postaci, które nie należą do mnie - w takim przypadku w opisie znajduje się notka, do kogo postać należy. Jeśli chodzi o moje autorskie postaci, to też nie wyrażam zgody na używanie ich w ten sposób - nietrudno wtedy do pogubienia ważnych dla mnie informacji (jak np. autor, kontakt do niego, itp).
aczkolwiek, jeśli byłabyś zainteresowana, za jakiś czas planuję rozpocząć 'commissionowanie' (dla niewtajemniczonych - rysować prace na zlecenie, za opłatą) i wtedy mogę bez problem narysować dla ciebie postać, którą możesz wykorzystywać gdzie chcesz :)

Okej - rozumiem. Sama też bym nie pozwoliła na ich używanie xD

Hm... bardzo chętnie zamówię, jednak teraz zbieram punkty i niestety nie chcę ich na razie wydawać. Jak będę miała wystarczającą ich ilość - napiszę do ciebie ^.^

well, that is the thing that I thought at the end - the scale of size. In fact, this dragon is not as big, and he lands the very mountain top :)

Dude, I love ALL of your work. It's spectacular! And I LOVE your interpretation of the Shikair! It's very close to what I envision. When I first created the dragon when I was 10 I used much more pastel colors in the design than what I do now. Anyway, it really is gorgeous and I :heart: it. :hug:

Thank YOU for the trade!!

pazury są ostre ಠ⌣ಠ

o ile dobrze się orientuję, to właśnie smokowate, które noszą na grzbietach jeźdźców, którzy czasem pewnie po pijaku wracają do domu... (przypomina mi się klacz Jakuba Wędrowycza...)

Zapamiętać: na następną wyprawę w chmury wziąć pilnik do pazurów :paranoid:

Smoki wracają po pijaku czy jeźdźcy? :O_o:
