Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-06
A fantastic use of scale, lighting, colour, and detailing. This is an absolutely stunning piece!

I like realistic dragons (think Harry Potter and Reign of Fire) but it's refreshing to see a real FANTASY dragon again. I mean, no animal could possibly be this size on Earth given what we know about vertebrate biology and physics but WHO CARES, THIS ROCKS

My biology and physics could be really off with this painting but while doing this, I was thinking there would be creatures as large or even larger than the dragon, an entire ecosystem to support their sizes. The planet they live in would obviously be way bigger than Earth. It's a fantasy world, I can exaggerate a bit heh :D
And thanks! :D

l0lz well the 3D modeling wouldn't be that bad, size isn't that hard its the tiny details that are a pain, your dragon doesn't look that complicated to create, it would be figuring out how to place it within the game that would be tough because of its scale size.

The bone mask where the nose is reminds of a Goblin Shark. I really love how he's towering over the steppes.

Why is everybody saying "it's so big" and "not what I'm use too"? Dragons are meant to be stupidly colossal.

Speaking of colossal, this reminds me of the Colossal titan from Attack on Titan.

Great piece, though if I could offer a little critique.. the dragon is beautiful, but in comparison to the picture as a whole seems kind of... stiff. With the neck and the foreleg so straight, it kind of takes a little something away from it for me, but the picture is still awesome (and I do really love the dragon's design.) :)

:iconskaya3000:
Skaya3000 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I hear you. It could be stiff I guess.
The pose was supposed to be mid-roar, when the dragon stiffens up before the releasing the scary (or beautiful) echoing shriek.

and Thanks! :)

Wow, this is simply gorgeous! The detail is just mind blowing, and the lighting is excellent. Seriously, amazing artwork. The rock formations and grass look so real. the dragon really adds some awesome depth, and I love the way you drew it, too (especially the teeth.) Brilliant work. :heart:

Huh, I guess with something that big, this might actually be a safe distance since you'd be too small for it to see you anyway.

While making this, I was thinking there would be an entire ecosystem that supports creatures of their size... So, several other creatures would be around the same size as it and the entire planet would be way, way bigger than Earth.
