A dragon's Tale by Luarcis A dragon's Tale by Luarcis
Jeah, something new again XDD
This pic was intended to become a cover for a book with dragon storys for a guy in some other forum. I've gave my best and even with several changes, he still doesn't like the dragon.. :-( So I don't know if he will take the picture as the cover anyway.
But for myself I'm quite a bit proud of it, I think, my coloring skills became better with it :-)
So enjoy ^^

download for all the details!

Wow awesome. Wish I could do that for the stories I'm writing ^^; Oh well. It looks great. The guy probably invisioned the dragon a little differently thats all. For example if this were the cover for the story (with the same title!) I'm writing I'd want the dragon to be younger and more innocent looking, not so vicious. Still it's a great piece, you shouldn't change anything about it, unless you wanted to...after all its your piece so its your decision. Well done

When I was merely browsing boredly for nice dragon pictures, this one caught my eye, and I simply said to myself " wow". Very good work, simply spectacular.

Naja, die Outlines haben im Vergleich nicht soo lange gedauert, war ja im Grunde auch nur der Drache, der ganze Rest kam ja dann erst mit der Colo. Aber daran kann man ja nachträglich kaum mehr was ändern.. >_>

Das bild ist einfach traumhaft. Wieso muss immer alles perfekt sein. Es gibt keinen perfekten drachen.
Das kapieren ja wahrscheinlich die meisten nicht.
Ich finde es auf jeden fall echt fantastisch. Wenn ich ein bild in auftrag gebe dann respektiere ich auch das ergebniss. Anscheinend hat der auftraggeber sich nicht mal bedankt. Unzufriedenes pack!!! Lu mach dir nichts daraus. Das bild würde auch als panorama bild sehr gut aussehen. Tolle Arbeit!! ^^

Der mag es nicht?! O.o Wenns ne commish war, dann würd ich ihn einfach zahlen lassen und ihm sagen, dass ers selbst besser machen soll, wenn es ihm nicht passt T.T

Das bild ist einfach der hammer, ich denke, dass man von Professionellen malern auch nicht sehr viel mehr erwarten kann ^-^

Freut mich, dass es dir gefällt :-)

Hmm, great work, though the lighting on the dragon is slightly off, making it look "cut out". I'd suggest some shadows on the right, that might just do the trick.
Reply
:iconluarcis:
Luarcis Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2008
Hmm, yes, I also thought so, but I think because of the flat angle of the sun rays, the shadow of the dragon would be very broad and distant. Also, I intented the stone to be nearly fully in the shadow of the sun, so that the shadow of the dragon and the one of the stone would merge together. But you're right, the dragon doesn't fit really well into the background, but I didn't know to make it better, I gave my best, this is the result ;-)
