Yeah and new art again. :) And finally a Dragon again. :D That "theme" got a bit neglected by me lately.
But I'm in a super artistic mood in the moment, so yes I'm very productive. Prepare for more art...

This was a rather fast painterly thing completely done digital. I tried out some new techniques there especialy concerning textures and I learned that it is really more than just recommendable to always really always use a perspective grid whenever a background is needed no matter what kind of background that is. It was a very big help in this case here also. I really like how the colours turned out on this.

All done at my old PC in PS CS2 with my old Wacom Graphire 4 tablet.

I'm really about how the colours turned out at the background there especially.

Beautiful golden dragon! :D How did you do the scales?

Thank you very much. :)
I made a seamless texture out of a photo of fish scales, added that over the skin colour on a separate layer and then I adjusted it's shape with the Liquify filter. :) It was a bit tricky but it worked.

Sehr schöne, träumerische Atmosphäre. Hab lange kein schönes Sonnenuntergangsbild mehr gesehen. :)
Mit den Texturen hast soweit gut und sauber gearbeitet. Nur am Schwanz liegen sie irgendwie ein bisschen falsch, glaube ich. Ist mehr ein Gefühl, als dass ich es irgendo festmachen könnte. ^^'
Aber an sich ein wirklich sehr schönes Bild, bin auf mehr gespannt!

Danke! :w00t:
Sonnenuntergänge mache ich gerne, ich arbeite überhaupt gerne mit Rot-Tönen (in letzter Zeit waren meine Sachen ja eher Blau lastig :XD: dabei tue ich mir mit der Farbe echt schwerer). Ich glaube am Schwanz könnte es sein, dass ich sie, aus Versehen, echt verkehrt draufgemacht habe. :XD:

Sieht man, der rötliche Sonnenuntergang verbreitet zusammen mit dem Drachen schon ne super Atmosphäre. :D
Für ein Übungsbild auf jeden Fall sehr klasse!

Hmm, also bist du weniger in einem Art Block. Nun, ich denke mal, dass dies eine gute Sache ist. Mir gefällt dieser Drache, dessen Hörner richtig wundervoll sind. Antilopenhörner, richtig? Ich mag sie, wegen der Kurvenform. Und der Sand ist auch recht schön. Man sieht die Spuren der Wellen, die durch Ebbe und Flut den ganzen Strand bedecken und auch die Spuren des Drachen. Die Reflektion der Abendsonne auf der Wasseroberfläche hat ebenso was für sich finde ich.
