I like the composition in this - how the tower finishes with clouds at the bottom, the Altaria for size comparison and how the texture stays faithful to the RSE Sky Pillar. It's very striking and would do well as a T-shirt design!

thanks! Yeah I like to imagine legends as being wellllll actually legendary and huge. I also noticed no one ever draws Rayquaza on top his tower where you originally find him :0

Beautiful job, Rayquaza is one of my favorites for sure.  The transparency looks nice, I like how you did the background.  I've been wanting to try out backgrounds in that sort of style, kind of reminds me of a sticker.  Anyway, your bold outlines are nice, and your shading and highlights are great.  Marvelous work.  And I just noticed we use the same names on our profiles, Storm.  Haha.

because storms are the best haha actually my old username was StormDragon but I changed it to just Stormful.
Thanks! Yeah I'm a fan of the sticker styles. I feel as though most of them work well on shirts and pop out that way so it's an eye catching design. And pokemon are well usually bright and colorful and full of action. I'm just hoping the designs come off that way and look appealing enough to buy..

Hell yeah, Storms rule.  Haha, my name is more like your old one, since a wyvern is a type of dragon, obviously.  And you're right, the sticker designs do pop out, they look very cool on merchandise.  I am planning to start selling my designs soon.  I have a program which is easy to add effects to my drawings such as text/bubbles, etc.  Basically anything I want, but I have to figure some things out first, seeing as I just got a debit card.  Everything's a bit overwhelming right now, I have too much freedom to buy/sell things that I suffer from paradox of choice.  Haha.

well if you're selling stuff online I'd probably get a paypal because it makes things very easy in my opinion

Oh, I have one already.  I am just so bad with the financial stuff, and all the linking and shit.  I guess I am just too lazy and overworked lately.  Haha.

gives an intense since of power looking at the scale of it in comparison to altaria and the tower reminds me a little of shadow of the colossus

well it IS a legendary that has to control groudon and kyogre that are HUGE, so I imagine he's just as big.

they're probably quite massive and dangerous given their territorial natures and locations they live in

I'd love to see another legendary fly by the tower and rayquaza get all pissed off and fight them off lol

Ahhhh this looks great!! I love the dotty shading you used for some reason! xD
Stormful's avatar
StormfulProfessional Digital Artist
I'm guilty of using screen tones sometimes, I don't even know why I like the dots but I do and it gives it a weird.. sporty... fun look.... idk anymore
Nestly's avatar

It kind of makes the design more appealing for printing and stuff, I feel like. I wish I knew how to add stuff like that!
Stormful's avatar

if you're using photoshop, just bring in a screen tone sheet or texture for your design, put it on the layer above your art, then select it to be an Overlay or Soft Light and change the opacity so it's not overbearing :0 I hope that helps

I suppose I could figure out how to do that on SAI. I just don't use PS for a whole lot. Do you have any fun resource sites for where you get your textures off hand? (Er... screen tone sheets?)
