Chianti by finiens Chianti by finiens
My entry for a contest at animexx.de. :>
The dragon is named Chianti (obvious title is obvious) and belongs to me, the species belongs to :iconraccun:.
This picture was the beginning, the middle and the end of my artblock. From now on I will draw more often again. Hopefully.XD

Wooow....
This gonna be one of my favourites!
Fur texture looks almost life like. Really, with those highlights it's almost magical. Like the 'butterfly wing' like texture on his wings. And the blurred plants in the foreground. One thing that not quite fits, is the sky. The character kinda cuts off cleanly from it while he mix with the rest of background nicely. But I can't quite imagine how this could be fixed...
Even so, It's the one of your prettiest works ^^

Yeah... the sky is the one part I donīt really like here. The way the trees blend in there does look wrong and even though I tried different colour combinations and spent hours to get it right, it just didnīt turn out the way I wanted to.*sigh*
Maybe I should just have made it black and left the trees out or something.:/

Yeah, I wonder myself what could help here...
I feel like I'm out of shape and don't remember how to draw xD

Gosh, I know that feeling! Right now I try to get back into traditional media a bit, since my pc overheats every hour in this weather and needs to be shut of until it cooled down again.
Itīs fun drawing with crayons, but compared to my digital works the drawings I make with them look horrible. I just donīt realize which tones I have to add first to get nice colour blends and were I should leave white spots for highlights, etc.XD

Oh, yeah. While working with traditional media you have to think a few steps ahead all the time! I'm no good at that xD I rarely touch crayons or even pencil now, except when I want to draw something for a close friend, but I'm never satisfied with the outcome :/

Itīs so very different from digital painting, but itīs so much fun! Even if I suck at colouring with crayons, I enjoy it very much. Maybe someday Iīll be better at this, but I probably will never be a pro. Not as good as with digital stuff, anyways.

Oh yeah, from time to time, I enjoy it also, but when nothing is pressuring me for good performance. And that was so long ago 'coz I pressure myself a lot. And I like digital much better still.
Right now even, I doing something by traditional means. I've prepared yesterday the template and sketch and everything but I fear I will mess up and I can't T.T If I submit it, you will see why I can't.

Then maybe make it mixed media and colour it digitally first...?
Even if you mess up with crayons later, you still have the sketch and this other version of it saved.

Thank you.:)
I tried to keep the markings as realistic and natural as possible. Besides the glow.XD
