Don't Wake the Lady by Skysealer Don't Wake the Lady by Skysealer
Just a speed paint that I started in grayscale and later added color over top (and badly at that, bahaha). It began as a 'brush challenge' in which I took a brush from my collection that I've never used before and sketched, as well as painted, the speed paint. Had some nice texture, but a lot of the gritty details were lost in the resize.
Sylys and Sardiryx enjoying the moonlight along a beach. I wouldn't suggest getting too close, Sylys doesn't take kindly to those who bother his lady.

the head and horns remind me of deathclaws from Fallout. It truly is an excellent piece.

I would never dare to wake up a lady.
I like that the colors match the nighttime. And I see 3 sources of light(moon, eye, neck) and all lighting and shading are really well done.
Awesome work^^

Wow, amazing! I love the glowing and the sharp edges of the scales. It has a great atmosphere to it with the cold moon and clouds in the background vs. the hot glowing there. :)

You have some great texture and color and shape going on here. I love the spines all over the dragon's face and body, and I really, really want to grow a set of horns like that fellow has on his head. :D

Wonderful to see another piece from you at last! I've been anxiously anticipating another drawing.
The lighting is amazing, and though you say you lost a lot of detail with the repaint and resizing, I have to disagree. From the small details in the horns, the textures, and the lighting effect I think this is a stunning quality piece. I could easily see it in an art book (D&D especially *shot*).
Don't keep us waiting so long for the next piece, will you? X3
