Painter x over water colour sketch

an entry for the Artorder blog. The assignment was to concept an Earthquake dragon. Pretty nice assignment dont cha think? Though I really enjoyed the process was a tad painful. I suffered a file coruption halfway through, that cost me a lot of time...

Must paint more dragons. Pretty essential stuff for a fantasy portfolio, and I realised I never painted a dragon in my life (except in kindergarten).

Man, I wish I'd had time to participate in this challenge!

Your first dragon, huh? It looks pretty good, though perhaps a tad bit light and airy for something made of earth? I love the gem stones. :)

Yeah yer right its too flity flighty flakey. I intended for a much heavier thick set Dragon, but the brief called for "a dnd dragon bodshape" or something. I veered too much towards excisting Dragon bodyshapes I thing... :( (damn you insecurity!). I should have done more my own thing (like my boy Melkir [link] he really took the brief and made it his own).

I am glad you like it though :D , especially the egg (when I came up with it, I might have danced around the room shouting:"fear me, I'm a genius!".

cheers Chelsea,

And Merlkir's design is awesome as well!

Neat design and clearly earth elemental. =^^= Especially the egg fascinates me, with the drillpart. This is a very good and new idea.

I haven't painted a dragon since highschool, you're not alone! :) (and even back then it was ONE dragon.)

And good job on finishing this early! I'm still in the sketch phase. :/

I finshed early beacuase i'll be attending a Jazz festival all weekend so I had to finish it yesterday (was a bit of a crunch)! I'm confident you will produce something stellar in the last couple o days. You seem to work quite fast...
