Rar and stuff by Lupinator Rar and stuff by Lupinator
[Updated With Scan]

This is my first dragon drawing. Even though it's actually not a full fledged dragon, it's nice to see I could draw one with reasonable competence... I'm still kind of a new artist so I've yet to draw so many things in the world of art... (on and off for three years now) and dragons are something I've always wanted to draw. I just need to find the time and proper conditions to really devote myself to drawing more.

And as for the image, I was drawn for a guy who's lookin' to get a tattoo of a dragon, I still have yet to draw other dragons in different styles (such as classic western and Chinese). He liked it so that makes me happy.

this looks excellent given your admitted lack of expertise
you certainly fooled me
anyhow, 1/2 dragons are fuxing epic, and this one reminds me of what my ideal impersonaltion would be.

Well, yanno, its so old now, haha. But, I think that anyone can just about draw anything with enough time and inspiration.

But, I'm very glad you like it! I really need to get back into drawing armored creatures again, haha, and especially of the dragon variety.

Well, yeah. I think I tried drawing one when I was like... 10 once. Honestly... this isn't really a true dragon, it has a human body, and dragons heads aren't that hard to draw to begin with.

Well, obviously it takes some study and practice, but as you progress as an artist in general, other subjects become more and more approachable and you are more capable towards them since you already have a grip on the fundamentals and basics of art.

Like I said, I already had drawn human anatomy before (which is still rather bad in this image), so all I really had to concentrate on is drawing a dragon head.

So, just keep drawing what you are doing, experiment, and you'll get there.

Sorry for the generic art advice/rambling... :c

Well, like my basketball coach always said, you get good in your off season. When it comes to art, it's the time you work on it by yourself that will really improve you.

Well, yeah, you get a certain effect with sharp angles... but I also tried to balance it out with some smooth curves too. It's all there, and it's all something ou can look into! :3

I looked at the detail and spikyness for about 10 minutes. The curves draw you into look at the details, yes, I very much agree:nod:

Take your art with you when you look at scanners. Find someone who actually knows what they are talking about in the computer sales area. If possible, test them at the store. A high resolution scanner should pick up the detail without any trouble.
Our scanner is old and it still picked up good detail on my Snape pic. OK, it's no where as finely detailed as yours, but my scanner is old and did fine. A new one should work well.

I love anthro dragons to death. ~riftryu really got me interested in them, and I've been meaning to do a lot more. Something about them can be so elegant and perfectly fashioned, but they also appear very powerful too--their form is decorative and artistic by nature... just a lot of pure awesomeness.

You need to draw one!
