Dark Ritual
I have a few angsty songs stuck in my head, so I made this. Time: ~30 minutes
The quality somehow went to shit after uploading - I wanted to only use the left half but then the image went grainier than bird food, so I uploaded the entire image.
This... ridiculously photogenic dragon has had me paint him for more than a week, and I am fed up. I constantly find new things to criticise, improve and find flaws in.
No more. No. More.
(Gallifrey stands)

I think this is the best piece I have ever made, though, so I got that going for me.

Yes, I used an image for the marble texture. But I painted the planks myself, same with the water, forest and entire friggin dragon. I'm finally figuring out colour palettes and lighting, which is great!

I still hate hands
Ref sheet or idk?
Still not entirely happy with the design tho. Shit sucks

Also sorry for the big fugly watermark, I've heard and seen of too many stolen ref sheets and designs. I may be paranoid, but better be safe

Not like anybody wants this anyway
I might sound really desperate but please someone tell me what to draw. PLEASE

You're very welcome!

Seeing as you like your page neat, I decided to thank you with a genuine fave instead of a redundant comment. That way I can check out your art in return.

You have some really nice stuff in your gallery, and each folder contains so many wonderful pieces... thank YOU for making art on here! I hope you have a wonderful time on DeviantArt!

Clever move - thanking me on your own page.

Profound thanks for your kindness. This sparks the enquiry: which piece do you favour the most?

Sincerely yours,

NikaStryx Featured By Owner May 15, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
I have a fondness for all things involving dragons and mythological creatures, so it is hard to pick a single creature of those abundant in your gallery.

However, I have taken a liking to The Great and Prodigious Ariana. Not only is the pose superb, as are the colours, but it also conveys a breathtaking ferocity which draws one in.
