No Trespassing by ShadeofShinon No Trespassing by ShadeofShinon
A long overdue art trade for =Galidor-Dragon, her dragon character Galidor.

You don't know how refreshing it was to draw something else than Pokemon for a change. I really need to get back at drawing dragons, I have forgotten how much I enjoy it. And I need to brush up my Photoshop painting skills, too.
This was a very nice picture to work on. I spent a long time trying to figure out what works the best and eventually I found the things I was satisfied with. I really like how this turned out, I'm especially happy with the perspective.

I hope you like it! Especially Galidor. :>

You're lucky. This dragon loses interest when the intruder flees.

(Swell work by the way, you really captured that form of intimidation however it might be a smidge too intimidating if was just a warning and not an attack but what do I know? If one wasn't intimidating enough then the opposition wouldn't leave!)

Thanks! I wouldn't know about dragons' behaviour. I'd say there are more calm and more aggressive individuals so maybe this one is one of the latter.

I wouldn't know either but I really believe they are with the whole "live and let live" concept, y'know it doesn't bother you unless hungry or you bother it.

I'm obsessed with details so in order to make detailed artwork I just have to learn to be patient. Patience improves, just like drawing skills, little by little and through working.

AGH!!! It's comin out to eat my face! I would have liked to see this on the 3ds using the best 3d settings. AWESOME. Good fading size into background! i love how the eyes are all tiny and scrunched up, and the lips are pulled back to show the teeth. Vicious!

Finding inspiration from other people's artwork usually helps. Also, seeing a lot of art builds your visual library which also helps with coming up with different things, more details etc. Also, if you're drawing a character, thinking about what kind of nature/personality it has and try to think about a scene that fits those qualities.
Or do you mean details as in scales and environment textures? References are a good way to learn about how details work. Starting to make very detailed work right away might not work too well as it requires a lot of patience and when it gets tiring you often rush the rest which doesn't lead to a good result. I speak from experience, but of course there are people who are more patient that others. Just try to find a good level of details you feel content with.

Everything. From detail to environment. Like my char Rage, I keep on changing his appearance, altering and working on him. Also there's like.... Shading and so forth.

Then it might be a good idea to practise doing different things. Improving won't happen immediately, but if you keep working on things you'll get there. Looking at some tutorials might be helpful, too.
