Very nice. I particularly like the perspective. I'm sorry if I sound ignorant (I'm very new to non-traditional art), but when you make a mistake while sketching (if ever), do you erase or simply draw over it, like when you did the rough shape of the jaw and then added teeth? When I do the basic line art, I tend to have to "clean up" a lot of lines otherwise I get thrown off. Also, any tips for making scales look more realistic? I saw in the video that you sort of add curls everywhere and then I blinked and with lighting there were suddenly scales.

Anyway, this is great.

thanks! yeah- for digital painting, you can usually just go right over it- or smudge it.

I loved the youtube painting video you did on this way back. :D Way cool- I love how the dragon almost seems to be growing out of the rock, and nestles against the glow of lava. This was one of the very first digital painting videos I saw, and one of the ones that got me interested in digital painting (I hadn't even known such a thing existed before, even though I had seen such art in books for years, :XD:). Gods- I keep repeating myself... ^^;

Remember me from the Comic Book League at Malow? :)

When this dragon was mentioned, I felt the need to see it for myself. Best dragon I've ever seen, and the speedpaint is amazing!

This is so awesome!! I saw your speedpainting on youtube - there it all looks so easy, so clear.... but it is really hard work. And you are so lucky because you are able to see WHERE you have to put the lightings and shadows so it will be perfect in the end. You are very talented! :clap:

yes! incredible indeed! and fascinating! for some strange reason, dragons are very alluring (I have 45 MacFarlane dragon figures) and your rendering brings out how frightening and ferocious they can be! bravo!

Fantastic, amazing work! Normally I'm not so much into dragons, but when I saw this one on youtube a while ago I had to bookmark it and watch the process a couple of times. Its really fascinating to see your paintings as they progress.

I've seen your videos from youtube. I must say that the technique you use when you draw is absolutely great!
Can I ask, what is the usual size of your pictures? There are so many details, I believe it is pretty huge. :)
