The Sea Dragon by Myrmoorzai The Sea Dragon by Myrmoorzai
This took all week to make. He is a new version of one of my first bunch of digital drawings I did years ago. You'll see he's a little different but he is the same dragon. =)

I hope you guys enjoy my hand-killing dragon =D

Oh also, I feel like his positioning is off, I had trouble putting the back flipper on properly so if you guys know what I should have done please drop some feedback.. Thanks!

I love the coloring you chose to do, as well as the location chosen. The plants seem to flow along with the water. It looks like something that you could find in the vastness of the ocean. Your signature being a bubble adds even more to it.

Pros: Expressive details, scales looks natural. Love the bubbles, they add pop. The eye is wonderful.

Cons: The back fins being scaled seems odd to me since the front ones have membranes. Though that could be for power strokes, so never mind. The front membrane may look more natural if you add some texture to it.

All in all 9.5-10. :D
What do you think?

Awesome!! :)
I love everything about him ;) His scales must have cost you so much time, they are incredibly well done! I also really like his head - the scales are very pretty there, and you make him look dragon-like and sea-creature-like at the same time. I guess it are his teeth, that look like those of a dolphin ^^
His fins are also beautiful because of the lighting.
Last but not least, his position doesn't bother me at all :) Can't really what should be wrong about it... He looks like a flexible and elegant sea-creature, that's all.
Nice job!

Including drawing the lines, I went over those scales 5 times (Base, shade, dark shade, and highlight)It's tedious but it never fails to come out satisfactorily. I actually did reference a dolphin for the teeth too =D

I'm happy you like it, maybe it's just me who sees the problem with the pose.. heh.

Yeah, it's a lot of work. I drew my first dragon-scales a week (or maybe 2) ago, and I did it like that as well. Base, base colour, dark shade, highlight. And I wasn't quite satisfied either ^^ But I think you should be satisfied with yours, since they really worked out well!! :)
Yayy, and I saw that it were dolphin teeth ^^ Me has a sharp eye, and you has awesome drawing skills! ^^

And you're welcome ^^
