The Orb Weaver by machine-guts The Orb Weaver by machine-guts
With perfect love, the Orb Weaver gracefully creates the galaxy in which she will soon be born.

I did this one for fun, and to take a break from the other projects I'm working on. Not too pleased with her arm but I like everything else. I hope you enjoy her too. :)

Photoshop, prints available.

if you don't like her arm, try using a humans arm for reference. my dragons are just a combination of human, horse, cat, and bat anatomy; essentially.

just a suggestion though. i really like this piece. i like her expression and especially the concept. i don't think her arm looks too bad, if you wouldn't have said anything i probably wouldn't have noticed. the lighting in fantastic! and i love the colors. :heart:

nice work! ;)

Your coloring tecniques are really good, you just gotta practice a bit more with anatomy to perfect your drawing. Anywayz, I still think this is pretty le-awsome ;D

Excelent work, and I love the choice of colours and shading.

However, (Isn't there always a but?) I find the wing somehow off balance? Not sure if that is the right wording. Particular as the dragon is kind of vertical, it seems to me that with wings in that position, it would tople over to the front.

As to the arm? It does look a bit odd to me, and possibly just needs some "beefing" on the forearm, to not make it look tubular. Also just above the elbow. Muscles in my mind are more "flowing" and rounded, not flat tubular.

That said, it is not enough to distract from the overall feeling, which I think is great. I get this feeling of awe, with the galazy in its infancy. Makes one kind of feel small....

Please note that these are my perceptions, and not intended to criticize, but rather give you feedback on my impressions. I wish I was half as artistic as you, as I am a moron when it comes to artistic expression. But I do appreciate art and love to see people's views of things.

Is there soemthing clinging to it's tail? And if you don't like the arm, maybe it could use some spikes or reshaping, it does seem a little round near the shoulder and flat elsewhere, but I'm no dragon anatomy expert.

Beautiful shading and color!

Very nice! That's one slick dragon design, me likes! Nice color choice, and the details around his hands/claws with the lights are an awesome touch. I even like how you did your signature.
