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... ^^;
