And the third dragon in this style.  :) (Smile) This drawing will also be available as a print at the Aki Con in Graz in October 21st-22nd at my artist table.
It's the "Eastern Dragon" or Draco orientalis. This will be the last one for now because I need to focus on other stuff now. :D

Does this art, and Draco occidentalis and Draco africanus, count as Dragonology fanart? Or are these dragons of your own design?
(asking because I'm looking for fanart; using 'Draco occidentalis' as a key search term as that is the Latin name for the dragon in that book series)
lovely art :3

It is only inspired by the book but the designs are my own there. ;)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH This dragon is awesome, i like linearts and i find very elegant this old paper style added as background. It looks like an ancient paper. I am recently learning how to made with GIMP the old paper effect. I love it *_*

Thank you very much. :D
I really had fun working on this.
Oh did you ever try out Kirta ( krita.org )? It's also a free art programm and is very similar to PS it can even open PSD files (I have to admit that I never managed to work with GIMP, :XD: it is somehow odd, Krita is a lot better ;) ).

You are welcome, sorry i said "I am recently learning how to made with GIMP the old paper effect. I love it *_*" i meant "I am recently learning how to make with GIMP the old paper effect. I love it *_*" sometimes i digit too fast that i make some typos, sorry again.
Anyway i never heard of Kirta, i tried to take a look, i downloaded it and let's see what will come out. Thank you for letting me know.

:D I actually find it cool when people can work with Gimp, I tried it a few times and it really made me crazy.
Give Krita a try when you can, ;) it is really a nice thing especially for painting techniques.

If you take a look at my Digital works, they are all made with GIMP. It took me many years to understand how layers work, this is due to that i always used Traditional techniques so my main error was to draw, colour and shade everything on a single layer. I am making small steps, next level: understanding level masks.
Definitely i will try it plus i would like to understand some basic concepts of digital painting.
