Wow......you left me at the meaning of speechless. I'll commission you sometime!~ ^.=.^ +fav'd & spreading word of your fabulous artwork. I hope it isn't a bother either hun, if I may ask if you have an un-watermarked version I may have, if its no trouble to you sweetie?
Never do I want to hear how terrible you are at traditional. In all honesty, watching you draw this was a lot of fun, as I could accurately see what your hands were doing while the drawing came to life. Like with everything, you put a whole lot of love into it. It's amazing; a simple sketch turned into something like this. And it didn't take too long as well! I love the ink job you did, and the shading is fantastic. The body proportions are very defined, especially the chest anatomy. It's very awesome to watch your artistic skill increase by this much.
I guess I was right about the smug guard giving you +50 artistic power.
Keep up the amazing art, hunny! I wanna see what you come out with next!
Wow, the definition of his muscles is really cool. I can tell you thought a lot about the structure of this dragon. The differences in texture on his wings are great, too; I like the long, curved lines that you used to communicate the stretching of the skin.
