Skwerl Scribbles

Recommended Posts

And to come back out of the ether! Wow, I need to give this an update. And actually be active on these forums. And actually update this. xd.png So uh... here, have all of the stuff I've drawn recently! (As well as some older images I intended to share but never actually did.) Be warned, it's a big post. Also be warned, the images that are only linked may be particularly bizarre or macabre!! It's not particularly gory, but there are some things that are like the zombie dragons in appearance (the new, updated sprites). Other things I linked because missing backgrounds hate preview thumbnails... Oh, and as usual, if you click on the previews you'll be shown the full-size images.

 

11/16/14 - Planet Yum. This picture that is almost two years old, but still looks pretty good!

 

Two new egg sprites, one a recolor of the other.

12/16/15 - Phantastic Christmas. Because I felt festive.

 

12/19/15 - Epion. A vampyric bat monster based off of a mob in a Minecraft mod that I like.

 

1/26/16 - Wolf King. My attempt at proper picture toning (darkening uninteresting areas and brightening interesting ones) while at the same time having dramatic lighting.

 

1/8/16 - Random Metal Skull Practice. The image seen is the avatar version I use.

 

1/11/16 - Aurax. I was wondering what an Okami Amaterasu feline equivalent might look like, and ended up with this. I kind of want to put it in a video game... (Oh whoops, looks like the preview doesn't like the glow effects...)

 

1/16/16 - Happy Bird. Literally just a happy bird.

 

3/25/16 - Chicken Wings! It was actually going to be the creature I was going to submit to that one Magistream contest, but it ended up looking so silly that I went with the Taggelisk Slugseeker in the above post.

Link, not because it's gory or anything, but because I forgot to give him a background, so the preview thumbnail looks no good.

 

4/19/16 - Another Flight Rising commission of a dragon couple (I don't actually know if they're a couple or not, they were just commissioned as partners).

 

The Earthshaker, the Earth Flight Deity on Flight Rising. He looks a bit funny close up because I was trying out a new, more painterly art technique on him. He looks better zoomed out.

 

5/26/16 - Bloodsmelt, one of my Flight Rising dragons. I just happened to go for one of the creepy ones. (That's not blood on him mods, just a pattern!)

 

6/9/16 - Plaguewanderer's Turf, a full scene that I never finished. I'm starting to like the messy, sketchy look though... (Linked because very red and has skulls and such)

 

5/2/16 - Cuddles Solve Everything. The owner of Tales of Ostlea had a sick relative, so I drew this Get-Well-Soon card for her. It's supposed to be an otter, but I'm not good at normal animals. xd.png

 

5/7/16 - My Bone. Started out as canine practice, turned into a dog begging for a bone from a bigger dog.

 

5/11/16 - June Gold Logo Attempt. Entered a contest to design a water/summer -themed logo for someone, and made this. Unfortunately it did not win.

Another link because I forgot to put in a background. I really need to start giving my translucent sketches backgrounds...

 

5/16/16 - Raggedy Vulture Concept. Literally just doodled some freaky vulture stuff. (Linked because raggedy like the Zombie Dragons. No color though.)

 

5/29/16 - Sword Design. Tried my hand at a sole inanimate object... I can't tell if it worked or not...

Linked because I keep forgetting backgrounds!!

 

5/30/16 - Rabbit Monster Critter. Another doodle that ended up being a creature. (Linked because kind of freaky, and also has wound marks/scars.)

 

7/27/16 - Kittens Come From Amazon. This picture I drew for my sister on her birthday. She was super stoked!

 

8/14/16 - Lolek the Lentoaekel, newborn form. It started out as a doodle, but yet again it turned into something...specifically, an alien OC.

 

8/15/16 - Lolek the Lentoaekel in his mostly-evolved form.

 

8/15/16 - March To Victory. The beginning of a stream of doodles I made while watching Mage's stream (turns out, watching people draw makes me want to draw).

 

8/16/16 - Bloodblister the Wyvern. This is what happens when you try doodling goblins while listening to rock... You end up with wyverns! (Linked because body scars. Look at me and playing it safe!)

 

8/16/16 - Macabre From a Flower. It really is some weird, macabre dragon emerging from a flower thing... (Linked because fleshy like the Zombie Dragons.)

 

8/17/16 - Quick Okami Amaterasu Doodle.

 

8/17/16 - Lileepa Concept + Skeleton. I like the creatures in Spore DS, but some of them are very comical... so I decided to try and draw what one of them - the Lileepa - might look like otherwise. I ended up with this. I drew the skeleton for the fun of it (probably not anatomically correct in any way.)

 

----------

 

WHEW! Okay. I think that's all of it. I really, really should update this more often so my posts aren't so gargantuan. xd.png I've updated the second post with all of the new images (well, relatively speaking), but I haven't updated the first post yet; however, I'm hoping that I will have enough time to take drawing requests! biggrin.gifProbably not sprite requests though because unfortunately I'm still working through that slump...

 

EDIT: 8/13/16 - I completely forgot about my sad mud critter! How could I forget about sad mud critter? D:

Also I have edited the main post! I am taking sketch requests again! (For doodling though. It's all practice stuff).

Art update! (I promise, it's smaller than the previous ones.) Drew three of TehUltimateMage's dragon characters in a humorous scene, and tried my hand at some Legendary Pokemon:

Quaksh, Myrdon, and Galho in that order. I didn't add the breed specifics since I scribbled it so quickly, but Myrdon is a Lumina which is why she's passed out from a chipped scale. xd.png

Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres;

Lugia;

And Ho-Oh.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

EDIT: Since this thread does not garner much attention my art updates are becoming spam, so I won't update with non-requested art anymore (with the exception of one or two things... maybe). I will only update this with requested art. If you're still interested in what I doodle up in the meantime, I have a portfolio now on my own website; the home page will be updated whenever I add anything new. The link for the site will be updated to the OP and in my signature (Shadow's Library) for convenience if you want to find it again.

All right, update time; I would like a fresh start with this! I gave the thread a big revamp and reduced my old art (except for sprites) to links in my previous posts for browsing convenience. I have also done some extensive portfolio cleanup, so if you had an image made by me that disappeared, check the OP for the new link for it. If it's not there, check my off-site portfolio. If it's still not there, poke me about it and I'll go digging through my art history to see if I can pull it up for you again!

 

Also, to re-elaborate on my above edit: updates will be slow since I'm restricting them to things related to the site, dragons, or requests, with the exception of the one thing here and there just for fun. I'm taking sketch requests again, but not sprite requests; I did a stupid thing and upgraded my monitor display, and it makes a mess of spriting... While I fiddle with that though, request away! No limits or anything, just me hoping my memory doesn't fail again.

To kick off the update, have a Gold Dragon:

ohmy.gif I have a thing for the gold dragon, and that looks AMAZING <3 You captured the highlights and shadows so perfectly, I just really REALLY want to run my hands along it because of how statuesque and metallic it looks.

Thanks! The metallic look was giving me some grief, but looking at the sprites helped a lot.

Tried my hand at a Purple Nebula; since the wings aren't seen I tried to put the pretty colors in his eyes. Not sure how it worked out...

EDIT: Whoa, I thought the purple ones were girls. Well, the anatomy is off. xd.png Oh well.

Angelicdragonpuppy linked a CYOA (yes, I'm linking it again!) in another thread, and I decided to give it a whirl. I had so much fun with it that I shared it with another friend and ended up drawing portraits of all of our characters! xd.png So have some dragon portraits with some sleep-deprived shading.

My characters:

Ooh, I've played that one before. It's one of my favorites~ You created some beautiful dragons!

Thanks! I think Calemvir and Ventril are my favorites... The expression on Esko's Calemvir turned out really well, looking back on it. o: (You can tell where in the line I grew tired, hah hah.)

Another friend requested a Pillow chef making mac n' cheese, so that's the next picture!

Oh my gosh. It looks like that pillow wants that mac'n'cheese. That's absolutely adorable. @_@

 

Going back and looking at some dragon portraits, too. Wow, skwerl, I knew you were talented, but this is like a whole 'nother level. I particularly like that nebula and the twinkling you managed to pull off.

Oh gee, thank you! :'D It was hard to make the Nebula look nice since the wings weren't in view, and the wings really are the prettiest parts. I've been thinking of doing a full picture of a Nebula in flight but I haven't brushed up on my space skills since... goll, I don't even remember now! I have been trying new landscape techniques though, so hopefully I could draw the Nebula again soon?

 

Another dragon OC of Esko's in the meantime:

Plus a bonus landscape image! First time in a long time since I've done a regular landscape with no critters; I tried some techniques from an old Bob Ross painting show my mom likes to watch, but it's not easy to replicate on a digital canvas. xd.png

EDIT: Almost forgot about a new Grave Dragon sprite I made! The art style is iffy because I'm experimenting with Krita, but he'll do for now.

Can you draw Bolz? (he also has white patterns instead of yellow...)

And if you can handle two request at one time, can you sprite a Periculus Claw Dragon egg and a Spitter Pygmy egg?

This... isn't the place to advertise for spriters for your DR threads. And really, you don't even have adults yet, so you're nowhere close to needing eggs. =x

I would have never known!

 

I would love to see a full nebbie from you!

 

Btw, love that landscape. You could have really been a contender to doing biome backgrounds if you'd know. =o

Oh my gosh these are gorgeous. I'd love an artwork of one of my characters, but none have a solid colour ref. Might I PM you?

Rainbowlight: Yup, I can draw Bolz! Sock's right about the eggs, but I do frequently visit Dragon Requests, so if you need a spriter once you have some solid sketches for those concepts I'd be happy to take a look!

 

Sock: You think so? o: I didn't even think about it at the time, though whoever made the current backgrounds did a fantastic job, especially the scroll/home page's one! Maybe I should practice scenery more.

 

RW: Sure! (Except I've seen your art so I'm anxious about drawing it right. :'D) You can ping me whenever, and I'll look at it when I can!

I would like to make a request if possible. I've had my current avatar for a while and would like to switch it up. If possible, could you do a headshot of one of my completed dragon requests? I'd like a headshot of this dragon if possible. It wouldn't need to be super detailed either, since its going to be avatar sized. Thank you!

DT: Headshot of an Amethyst, noted!

 

Rainbowlight: I made two Electrics, but the first doesn't have markings and yellow/purple colors, and turned out menacing (probably all of those sharp angels and the interpretive style, whoops), so I made something more accurate to Bolz:

Electric Heart, and...

Bolz.

You can use whichever you prefer!

That angle, the lighting, pose, it all looks so ferocious o-o I love it!

Oh yes.

If the lightning doesn't look very right to his description, it's still very accurate.

It's beautiful.

Oh good! I was having doubts about the dark one, even though the contrast is cool. xd.png

Sticking Wyvern's OC in here for portfolio purposes! The others will eventually end up in this thread too (unless she asks me not to share tongue.gif).

Meow do you accept non dragon oc?

If so can you make my own oc Rainbow? (the most accurate reference is my avatar, but it's only 95% accurate. She has pure white fur, her left ear is torn badly and her right ear is notched on both side (most of the artist forgot that part). Her left eye are blinded so it's a blackish color with a long scar going through it. She also has bear scars on her chest. (she is also an albino serval to be exact)

DT: The portrait turned out nicely... until I tried to shrink it. xd.png

The original in case you want to try shrinking it yourself.

user posted image

Then the failed shrunken version.

 

@Rainbowlight: Yeah, I'll draw things other than dragons. I'm looking at your avatar, and does she also have a ring on her left back foot and several red marks on her chest? Or is that part of the remaining 5% accuracy? The torn ears and the eye I can do.

Share this post


Link to post

Yes, that's the 5% accuracy. She actually does have a scar on her neck too, from being scratched there many times. Other than that, she has no other injuries.

(why does everyone draw her spotted with no injuries I don't get it lol, but yours will be my new avatar)

Edit: I totally forgot about the most important part, the fangs. They're sabertooth length but much thinner and sharper.
