A Little More About Me...

Art is a love of mine, but more of a hobby than anything else, but you see I'm really quite desperate to improve! I want to make everything about my artwork better, from anatomy to technique and lightning - all of that! I'm offering my $3 $1 commissions for free as a sort of 'DragonCave exclusive' because I've always found this community is fantastic when it comes to helping out creatively. If you feel the need to trade eggs for my art, I've left a list below of what type I'm interested in smile.gif

 

Some of My Work

My work is a bit of a range of things. I love drawing dragons the most, alongside other mythical beasties. I'm working on horses at the moment, they're fascinating animals to draw! I do a few people, but I'm not great with them. My girls are still far far better than my boys though, oh my, they're bad and I will do anything to encourage you not to request male humanoid characters. Please note I will not draw anime!

In order to find out what I need to get pairs, please take a look at my scroll.

 

E.G. I would like another Sun Amphitheatre, if you can try influence it to hatch male, that would also be greatly appreciated!

 

Trading art for eggs is not compulsory!

Oh, hey, loving your art! I'll definitely request something a little bit closer to my birthday. c:

(I was not expecting this critique post to be so long .__. )

Your stuff is really nice! I love that black and red dragon; there's a lot of detail in there.

 

There are a few small details that bug me in the other pieces. In the drawing with the purple dragon, it looks very out of place against the background. Perhaps because the background has much more visible texture in it, as opposed to the smooth-shaded dragon. It's especially jarring with that heavily textured grass. I also think adding more contrast in the value system would work out great--push the dark shadows darker, and add some highlights where the light is directly hitting the dragon! They don't have to be big highlights--just something to show where the light is coming from.

 

Now, the blue flaming cat--I love the atmospheric lighting here, and the fact that the blue flames are serving as the picture's light source. It's fantastic! My issue is the reflection. It's so smooth, and the colors are almost unaltered from the actual character. Reflections in water are usually a bit blurry, desaturated and warped because of the nature of water.

 

For your human figures, I recommend some anatomy practice, such as figure or gesture drawing. Study the body and how it looks in motion, at rest, laying down, etc. The angel picture is actually a bit unnerving to me, because her torso is rather elongated and her spine is bent at a rather awkward angle to her hips. And breasts don't create cleavage like that without some major support--even then, keep in mind that breasts are not just spheres attached to the chest. They're more like sacks, or teardrop shapes, and that kind of cleavage (which I refer to as plumber's crack cleavage tongue.gif ) isn't natural.

 

Here are some drawing resources that I find really helpful:

Posemaniacs, which contains a large library of images to use as references for human poses. They even come in various perspectives, so you can have the exact image you need!

This site is an INCREDIBLY useful gesture drawing tool. Gesture drawing is great for learning about capturing figures in motion. Please be aware that this site has nude models in it. However, you have the option of NOT seeing the nude models if you don't want to.

 

All in all: Great art! I recommend fleshing out your foundations and experimenting with the 'basics'. I think you have a lot of potential!

Thank you Jackal, I mean, seriously, thank you ;u; it's not often you can find honest decent critique out there! (I swear, people shy away from it on dA...) I'll admit, the tiger one was more of an experiment with flamey-glowiness but I totally agree with you on the reflection and seeing as I'm quite fond of doing this style of picture at the moment I'll absolutely make sure to work on reflections in the future! The purple dragon is a fairly old picture, but like I say, critique is always welcomed when it's helpful, which yours is! biggrin.gif I tend to shy away from backgrounds at the moment, simply for the point that you mentioned, I have some issues with subjects and backgrounds ;n; but practise practise practise right? FINALLY, lordy this will be a heck of a text wall. My people, oh lordy, I know xd.png People definitely are not my forte! I'm fine with nude models so no worries there, I'm considering trying to get into some life drawing classes anyhow so might as well start somewhere! :3 Again, thank you very much Jackal!

 

Tiffashy! Well, what type of eggs do you have? Perhaps we can negotiate *eyebrow wiggle*

PREPARE TO BE SPAMMED <3

 

(and also v_v after this may I wait a while if you're filled and request more art, Isimplyadoreitk D: )

 

Username: Verridith

Request: A dragon OC of mine *uploads his ref*

Specifics: Crappy editref here (I'll draw a real one someday lol): http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/3450/howlref.png

He's fairly calm, cool and collected, somewhat vain though not arrogant. He can get cocky and be a show-off sometimes, and loves to spread his large wings whether he plans to take flight or not. He always holds himself somewhat aloof, as if looking down on the world, but he's really a compassionate being. Take those facts in and play with the pose however you want :3

Text: No thank you, it'll be used for a character page XD much like this one here.

Banner?: Nty~

Extra note: On that end, could he be on a transparent background please? <3

 

Username: Verridith

Request: You said you aren't good with male human characters- but I want to see how you do! XD Practice makes perfect, and so I'm gonna pitch you a curveball. You'll do fine. He's a shiny OC. (:

Specifics: He's a demon with both dragon and human forms - however, I want his human form done right now. This page has both refs, and the notes on the human one should explain his appearance pretty well ^^ I do want his clothing and armor to be slightly different (design is mostly up to you; I haven't role-played him too terribly much, so I haven't set in stone a certain look for his clothing), but keep in mind he's a demon and won't probably wear normal medieval peasant or knight's armor. Designs from the pic I chose to represent him that I'd like to keep are his basic facial features and hair - he almost looks exactly like that in my mind, lol. Clothing wise I'd like him to have a lot of leather. He should also have two markless bands of metal around each wrist, like chainless manacles. Not quite like the pic, but more like the ones on his dragon ref. I'd also like to keep the high fancy collar. =P

Text: Nty~

Banner?: No thanks ^^

Extra note: Trans bg for him, too please?

 

Thank you so much! If I can breed you anything on my scroll, do tell and I will. (:

Done and done! Howl is beauuutiful ;u; I know already that he'll be a lot of fun to draw.

 

Ooooh, I will try with your demon! If I really struggle I'll just come crying to you in the middle of the night begging forgiveness.

 

I won't lie, those Hellfire Wyverns are preeeetty!
