AT: Zircon by wispywaffle AT: Zircon by wispywaffle
Art trade with *LadyVenomMyotismon of her awesome character Zircon!

It's been way too long since I drew a real full-on-rawr-y dragon. @A@ Fluffy cute things have been invading as of late.

Hurrr omg my gosh this was so fun I love painting but so painful and hard on my eyes. ;n; I kept having to tilt my screen back and forth to see the contrast, tell me how it is? Too dark, too light?

I used a different brush because I wanted to see how it is, and I rather like the effect, although it's really sort rough and messy feeling. I SPENT HOURS ON THIS, I SWEAR. HOURS AND HOURS.
\"Orz

And and thanks so much to ~iDraw-RAWR for saving it for me when my SAI derped out! ;n;!

I find it funny that I used about 3 % white and 97% gray-black-pinks for a almost completely white dragon. :o I do love glows and caves, though.,

Zircon belongs to *LadyVenomMyotismon
Art is mine

The color scheme is perfect, making it look as though it should be glowing. I enjoy the dripping effect the liquid has on the dragon.

LOOK AT THOSE ROOKS. @A@ I really love the colouring you have done on the enviroment with all the reflections and patterns on the rocks, looks lovely~
The dragon is very well shaded as well, I especially adore those wings with their poses because they look very well coloured and drawn <3
I also love the atmosphere in this picture, it fits very well with the character, especially the mystical feeling is lovely. And all the glowing stuff adds a even more mystical feeling to it all ;U Fascinating work :heart:

Actually it`s 100% made in SAI. And no, it`s just the default rough-brush texture. Under pen/brush tool don`t matter.

This is very nice! That dragon looks really awesome, I love you shaded it, and there's lots of nice detail ^^ I'm also really liking how you did the wings~
I also love the background, it's done very well, and that glowing pink stuff is pretty cool xD The lighting is lovely too, I like how you did the highlights~
The brightness of the picture also looks fine on my screen ^^ Great work!

ahah i love your signature riding on the wing ;U;;

you're not slow at all and this is a lovely comment asdas! @A@

and ditto to you comments. I never delete any until I reply so I have thousands. 8D

contrast contrast I do? @A@ I guess it's because I paint in the lights, as opposed to shadow and so it's more .. stuff like that? IDK??

GLOWLY I LOVE GLOWY ASRF glowy is my life I love glowsss

x'D I had no idea where to put that thing since it was kinda invisible anywhere else, or too strong and makes the picture ugly

GO GO WORK!! /takes love

i am always slow QuQQQQ but eee :>

bahuuu it takes me so long to reply q.q i try to clear them every day and wake up and it's like... QoQ then i think of you and your stack of 1000s AHAHAHA. GOOD LUCK WITH THEM ;OOOO;

ahhh do you mean you colour like, dark to light? i do that too some times but i always have a problem with contrast, which is why a lot of my stuff is so light @u@;; BUT I WILL try to do a darker/less cutesy picture some time like you suggested! i think it would be interesting.
...IT MAY BE wispy magic :> :><3

<3

AAHAH - yeah ;o; with signatures it's so tricky. so far i haven't had much big pictures since i upload at a kind of a smallish resolution huu but for instance like, chibis, i would watermark them across the picture AHHAA since those are really easy to steal/use for stickers and stuff >.>;;;; but ehuu ;o;

*O*
TAKE ANOTHER BUNDLE I AM SO TIRED Q.QQQQ

I had that but I gave up long ago. x'D
LONG
LONG AGO

"Orzzzzz

Well, actually I take that back. It depends on the environment. If it's a dark environment, I would colour the entire dragon in dark gray, then add lights. Gaaah, I have the wip shots of this but I don't have any animation programs at the moment so I can't show iit! Dx

yes yes very interesting I really want to seeeeeeeeeeee

WHEESP MAGEEKSSSS

no one'd use my art, which is a good thing, but I watermark just in case. x'D

ohhh okay! that's so interesting! and wip shots ooh ;o; i'd love to see them, progress things are always super interesting, even if it's much later when you get an animation program XD;

*O* i will frolick in this batch of wispy magic that escaped ;vv;;

LOL well, you'd never know :CC i feel bad for ruining pictures with ugly watermarks but i guess it's just less of a hassle to do this beforehand than after TT_____TT;;
