I think that was the most la's I ever got. :la:

Glad you love it, and yeah I know, the markings weren't visible at all in the shading so it didn't work out.

I got to say, you're pretty generous with these gifts. And you put so much effort into them. Maybe a little critique is the light source(s?), mainly on the wings. I don't think that they should reflect that much light, seeing as how the clouds wouldn't emit that much light, even though they're glowy clouds of some volcanic area >.>
Unless there's some light source I can't see, all I can see if the glowy worm... thing and the fire, lava and stuff.

Also, I was watching you Livestream =D

Thanks. Yeah I don't know why I'm so generous. I work to the bone for my fans.

Hmm...yeah that may be too bright. The lighting in a lava scene is quite complex. Light gets reflected everywhere, even in the gas itself. So I had a tough time figuring out the lighting. That second to last part got me wondering...I should do a drawing where the light source is implied and not actually seen. :la:

So epic... But the term 'lava worm' reminds me of this series called "Final Fantasy". You know, because they have all these weird monsters. :D

now that is really cool! you did awesome! the "worm" looks awesome! the only thing i can say is that is that the tan dragon's tail is a lil too bulgy. and the smoke coming out of the worms head is going to the side when the worm is moving forward. the smoke looks like it should be going back instead of to the side

:icontsitra360:
Tsitra360 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011
Thank you, I'm proud of my first monster. And yeah it is quite pudgy, oops. Oh and they aren't tan, the right one is white and the one on the left is black. Talk about terrible colors when dealing with a lava scene, can't help but make them tan :XD:

It is going back, it just appears going off to the side :O

Why thank you :D I'm trying really harder with the poses. Though now I have a challenge. A real life friend told me that my dragons are looking....bland. He explains that there isn't much change to them. I agree with him, I should try creating some unique anatomies of a dragon, just for fun.

:iconsigma-the-dragon:
sigma-the-dragon Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
I have that problem too :/ What I try is doing more creative parts of a dragon, so instead of the typical Spyro-style ringed horns I will try and think up my own new design, or what I do now is make the scales patterned to make the dragon look more tough. But I wouldn't say your dragons are bland...but may be you could try making some of your own anatomy instead of the Spyro-styled type it would make them look more original to you ^^

:icontsitra360:
Tsitra360 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
Yep, my style reflects Spyro and other artists. It doesn't deviate much. I'll think of something. ;)

sigma-the-dragon Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
I'm not saying your Spyro-styled art is wrong, its just if you wanted it to be more creative just try to think outside of the Spyro-style box XD
Reply
:icontsitra360:
Tsitra360 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
True. I love your style, but to be creative I probably want to start with some references and then add some 'flare' to the designs.

:iconsigma-the-dragon:
sigma-the-dragon Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011
Well I found what I got into the habit of doing was when I was designing a character I just thought *body/wing colour, crest, horns, tail, breast plates* and then I was done designing XD But now what I try to do is think in more detail...so instead of "what colour are the wings gono be?" its "what shape,size,type,material and strength are my wings gono be and why?" Also a great helper is to think "what environment is my dragon living in?" That question usually answers a lot about colour and anatomy, but obviously it up to you to decide if you want to use that way, but I personally find it useful to be more creative with my dragons ^^
