In all seriousness, I really want to know how do you make such amazing realistic dragons? Where did you learn this skill? I know the answer is usually practice but I am completely clueless how you make them, even my dreams are envious on how you make such original creations. From my experience over the years, I'll be able to draw from a photo fine, be able to recite anatomy good, but when I go to draw or paint a dragon the way you do from imagination, nothing clicks, as if I never studied at all. even the drawings you did in your high school years I'm at a complete loss how you did them. I've looked up dragon tutorials and come up empty and everyone I talk to says dragons are easy, the only thing I can say is I either have a bad visual handicap or I'm really overlooking something. Your art is just so breathtaking.

I just taught myself.. no one has helped me. Never went to artschool because it was to expensive for me.

Thats very interesting! A lot of other artists I look up to say the same thing and professional artists I don't like are the ones that did go. I don't know how you learned to out paint so many professionals digitally and traditionally! I'm self taught for the same reasons but I did have some teachers to help me make non fantasy art.

But something I wanted to ask you is, do you visualize your pictures before you paint? I've never had the ability to craft an image in my head before I draw and when I try to, I spend the entire day waiting and I get nothing done. Since the subject that you paint isn't in reality what do you do to help make your fantasies look so realistic? Other artists I've seen are so reference heavy they end up looking like photo manipulations and call it "fantasy" or "creature design" even if its a painting, while your creations are so full of character. I'm especially dumbfounded how you did this the-sixthleafclover.deviantart… Every dragon is so original and you captured their emotions better than I've seen portrait artists do with humans. But since they are dragons I know you didn't use a photo that the portrait artist would have had. ( and don't get me started with the masterful rendering!) How did you do that?

I do visualize how I think it will look in my head. As usual, sometimes it doesn't come out exactly like I want it or it takes a turn and turns into some kind of other picture. I do use visual reference, but not heavily. I think it's better to use imagination rather than make something look exactly like a photo. I like to play a lot with lighting and shadows in color. I am very sensitive to color since my eyes can see a bit more color than most people. Its a condition I have.

Thats awesome! What do you do if you can't visualize it? Copying something almost exactly is the only way I can really draw adequately, moving and changing the shadow is something my mind can't fathom. I've drawn hundreds of dragons and I still can't visualize them before I draw, let alone "realistically". 

Thats quite an interesting condition! I totally forgot how people perceive colors differently. I can totally see it by just seeing your paintings, they are insanely colorful. It reminds me theirs another fantasy artist that paints dragons and is technically color blind.
