I´m not that proud of anatomy of my Charackter but I think the wings turned out ok.

Not exactly the wings they ordered, but it took me 2 weeks to detail the wings

  • Which winged creature is your favorite?

Hard too pick, to many winged creatures that are wonderful

  • What other details would you add to a dragon?

Lots of teeth, horns or spines

  • What tutorial would you want to see next?

Pixel, water colour or other traditional mediums would be nice

Pixelart: chibi dark knight

Again, I played with pixelart to change a lot from my normal style.

The interest in pixelart is that you have to be minimalist and still create an impression of the shape, even lightning and shadows, which is more challenging than it appears.

That's fun, though :D

Here's mine

Shadow Devil Rift

Bats and Butterflies are my favorite winged creatures.

To dragon I would like to add elemental scales like fire resistant scales vs a more a aquatic themed dragon scales.

Maybe a cartoony goth style lesson like how to get that Tim Burton or Invader Zim look. Creepy but charming.

Well, drawing bat wings is really difficult sometimes. But with a little practice (and with such a tutorial) you can (more or less) master such difficulties ;)
