Of Fire and Scales by Owlivia Of Fire and Scales by Owlivia
Inspired by drawing Nym yesterday; I remembered how fun dragons were to draw and wanted to see how much I'd improved since my younger days, where I would doodle them everywhere :')
Suffice to say there has been much improvement.

This is more one-layer practice, I'm slowly getting used to it :) It's been so helpful, I've developed new techniques, become quicker, and more precise in my work. I love it <D
Also this is the first time I've done fire without layer or brush effects. This was painted entirely with an airbrush, just fiddling with opacity settings and pressure sensitivity.

If someone wants to name this little critter be my guest, he's not really a recurring character but might pop up for practice cx
EDIT:
He is now called Marnus Dexus Deranna the Third, courtesy of :iconkageshinobikitsune:

OMG what program do you use? I recently use SAI!

Owlivia Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
This was all done in Sai :) I usually use a mixture of Sai and Photoshop, Sai for the linearly and colouring and then PS for post-rendering ^^

This is great, but can I just say, this could do with being a bit sharper.

This is solid work! The only suggestions I have are to tighten up your solid forms. I feel like the entire dragon is too soft and "airbrushy." Clean up your edges where the body is, and focus on making all the little details fully realized; this piece would be DD worthy.

Oh you're very welcome! Lighting used to be one of my
weak points as well, but if you keep practising you'll
definitely get better. :meow: Keep up the great work!
