First Digital Painting Cynder by Tsitra360 First Digital Painting Cynder by Tsitra360
Click to see speed VIDEO [link]

Update: the hindlegs and tail has been darkened

Alright, it's not the first. However, this is part 2 of 3 of my plan to paint spyro and cynder. If you haven't seen part 1 (spyro) just click the thumbnail below.

Cynder is a fun dragon to draw and she's much easier to draw than Spyro. Eventually I'm going to paint a background as well. Tell me what you think and ask me questions and I will try to answer them.

Time: 10 hours 28 min 43 sec
Photoshop Layers: 48
Cynder copyrighted to Sierra (I think)

You just keep getting better. This is amazing! The bracelets look very realistic along with the accuracy of the scales. You did a great job on the horns also. The wings look absolutely magnificent, especially the detail u added into them and the coloring. The details in her hide is also very accurate. Also it her eye that catches my eyes, very realistic and vibrant. Very beautiful. And yes, you did a great job desaturating the picture to make her look black instead of purple. And the shading is amazing, good work on that!

Now for mistakes. Looking at the lower half of her body, it looks alot more brighter than the upper half. Well, more paler I guess I should say. And the left hind leg looks kind of weird too. Maybe you should add something indicating the mid segment of her leg is above the last segment instead of it looking like it got bent to the side.

Other than the mistakes, you did absolutely wonderful! After each picture you paint, you get better and better
TWO THUMBS UP!

This is amazing.  And you didn't reference Skylanders which is major bonus points!  I get deep pockets of rage when people go around saying "Cynder is my favorite Skylander" and then I want to hit people with heavy blunt objects.

Hmm, I wouldn't want that actually. Why not paint the original? Search Cynder Dawn Of The Dragon on Google and find it. I think it exists.

I've always thought that cynder was easier to draw than spyro because she has like smoother scales and shes thinner :-O?

I do not know if anyone has informed you before, but another deviant art user has edited this picture and posted it on her own profile. I don't know if she had your permission, but I highly doubt that she did.

This is the edited picture:

I thank you for your time and apologize for wasting it if you had known about this previously.

I also love the way you did this. It looks like it's straight from the games. Great job.

No, thanks for telling me. Yes I was informed of this earlier and the artist did mention me in the artist's comments. However, it isn't obvious because I missed it too thinking the person still didn't credit me.

And thanks, this is one of my personal faves.

She is certainly a beautiful Dragoness, I really love the detail you put in her scales and the shading. I also like how she is extending her chest out and wings evenly spread apart to give her a more of a bold pose. :D
