CP: Light Bringer by Turtle-Arts CP: Light Bringer by Turtle-Arts
My last prize piece for my contest. This is the prize for :iconclearyellowrain: who took first in the contest with her lovely piece. :3 For her prize, she requested a drawing of these two OCs of hers. I don't think these character actually even have names, but I had a good time drawing them. :nod: And I like that dragon. That is a cool dragon character. Granted, he was kind of a butt to draw, but he's still cool. XD Oh, and I made up a tail fin for him since that part was cut off in the reference. Hope you like it alright. :I Also, I hope you don't mind the changes I made on the dragon's design... particularly on his face. >_>;

Actually, what's kind of funny is that originally I was drawing a completely different picture of these two. And then halfway through inking it I decided I didn't like the picture and started over again. Then I ended up doing this whole picture in about half the time it took me to do the other one that I didn't even finish. >_<

Anyways, hope you like this!

That swirly smoke thing in the back. It's awesome. Such a small detail really adds a lot to the composition I think. :U

Haha this is so adorable! Small girls on giant grumpy looking dragons :P

For some reason, the dragon reminds me of Insane Clown Posse.

Lol, yeah I made the dragon a little more ferocious than in the reference I was given, but with a facial pattern like that he just looked like he should be a bit more intimidating. XD

It took you half the time to do this one than the original piece...? Wow XD
Well, he may have been a pain to draw but he sure came out nice ^^ Especially his face. Really draws you in.

Yeeeeah, well I kept having problems with the dragon's face actually. Originally the dragon in this pic was different from the neck up, but I didn't like the drawing so I erased it. And then I had to draw the dragon's head on another page like three times before I got this one. XD But I liked this face, even if it's a bit different from the original character's designlikealotdifferentso I reinserted it into the picture and now we're good! :thumbsup:

Have I mentioned yet how much I enjoy your dappled shading technique?

Whenever I see a pair like this, I have to wonder which character is *actually* more dangerous! Appearances can be deceiving, after all!

And yes, gotta watch out for that little girl. -3-

Well, all my teachers say we need to be our own artist and have something unique that makes our work identifiable and desirable. Before, my teachers always liked how I drew, but never really how I painted/colored. They always said my color wasn't up to par with my drawing ability, but since I discovered this style for myself they all seem to really like it now. :3 And it's always great when a professor tells you it's getting hard to find any flaws in your artwork. XD
