There is still hope by Soreiya There is still hope by Soreiya
I got a picture done without the power going out LOL *is happy* I'm so glad it didnt because I was starting to like this hehe not sure why I been in the mood to draw dragons latly but eh who cares I'm better at them than people so for once I can me completely comfortable posting my art because I actually like this one lol

Edit ignore edit: sorry forgot to add the link for the animation [link]

if your wondering whats going on in this picture don't ask me because I don't know it sort of reminds me of a Kouichi picture I drew a long time ago

speaking of Kouichi yeah really want to thank everyone for the nice comments on my ms paint Kouichi picture really made me feel alot better about my art haha I needed a little confidence

I still need help with the other dragon picture the one in my joural I sort of gave up on it after the power went out makeing me lose a good 6 hours of working on the darn thing *cries* why did I have to draw such a hard pose stupid legs....

I like drawing furry dragons because I feel like they look a bit friendlier/ more approachable? It's silly, but I don't think I've ever drawn a dragon that was all rawrrrr. Maybe I should someday.

Hard to believe this is over 10 years old. I remember at the time I had a computer that would randomly restart itself. x____X

Absolutely gorgeous, and so incerdibly intricate. I would go nuts trying to do something requiring such great detail, like this does. How long did this take to complete? I imagine it was quite a while.

Have you tried Photobucket? You can upload it there and put a link to it on your deviation's page; maybe even embed it onto your dA page.

Photobucket doesn't upload .pch files. It needs to be uploaded to an oekaki board since it is not a video file.

Wow, the lighting and the scenery in this is just gorgeous! I think it's the color scheme...anyway, great perspective! Kinda like we're sneaking up on the creature! My only suggestion on this one is to rework the wings a bit. If you look at a bird's wing, you'll notice there's a structure and almost a pattern to the way the feathers grow. Usually they lay pretty flat and layer on top of each other (makes the wing more streamlined in flight). But on a brighter note, I like the painted feel of this piece! Seeing some strokes in the water and the rocks helps create some visual unity throughout the entire image. Good job!

I had a weird way of drawing wings back then. I suppose I'll keep that advice in my head for the future.

I know this is an older one of yours, but I was just browsing your gallery and felt compelled to comment.
This is just....it's just /rediculously/ good. it's incredible.

it's kind of a random question, but have you ever considered using a different type of program other than oekaki? I know after getting used to one program it's hard to use a different one (I've always use photoshop and I can't stand painter lol). the reason I say this is because I started out on oekaki's and after I started using photoshop, the oekaki seemed....limited.
If you can do /this/ with an oekaki, I'm thinking you have awesome potential with bigger art programs.
anyway, sorry for bugging you. your piece inspired me. :)

I have Photoshop CS2 (downloaded it) but I have a hard time coloring with it and I don't have anyone to teach me how to work it properly

I'm use to oekaki and since I am not pro there isn't much point to draw in high resolution

hey, anytime you want I can give you a tutorial of how to use layers, colors, brushes, etc. I've been using it for years so I'm pretty used to it.

but it's up to you, I'm just offereing help if you ever feel like it X3 all I know is, when I switched to photoshop, it was a breeze compared to oekaki because it's so much easier to save anytime you want.

I don't need to much help with layers I understand those pretty well I just am bad at coloring in PS the colors don't blend nicely like they do in oekaki
