Very nice work! =D
By the way, do you work over a previous scanned lineart or you draw the lineart directly on pc?

I have done both, but primarily I work 100% from start to finish in Photoshop these days. :>

I have one of these bad boys on my Y version. XD
LOVE this, btw. It's so full of badassery I don't even know where to start. The anatomy and muscles are drool inducing. Also, I love how you've made him look more agile here. In the games he basically just kinda sits there, with very little movement...which is a bit disappointing. I like your rendition waaaaaayyyyy better. :D

Also your slapped together, just-doin'-it-for-fun stuff puts my spent-hours-on-it stuff to shame!! XD Not that I do much spent-hours-on-it stuff anymore. I'm mostly into quick sketches and line drawings nowadays. Anyway, your art rocks, and is just plain damn inspiring. Makes me want to try harder to get better. :la:

Someone likened this rendition to a kaiju, which made me bounce out of my seat with joy, it was so unexpected. Kaiju!Nidoking, can you imagine it? Kaiju!Pokemon in general? Ah yiss.

I admit - I had to look up what kaiju meant. :dummy: :ashamed: But now that I know, HELL YASSS. Very awesome mental image, that. :D

Yup! He has draconic qualities in his design and elements that I exaggerated here, so why not tag both? Catches attention. C:

...oh, well, I sent you a note a good while back after seeing your picture of Kauzikeranth. I said,

"Hi! I was just browsing google for D&D Dragons, and I came across Kauzikeranth. I have to saw...I was amazed! I think the idea of Hybrid Dragons is a great one, and I'm also a fan of D&D, which brings me to a question I have...

...I'm involved in an RP forum game on TV Tropes, and some of my characters are based off Dungeons & Dragons races and monsters, because I found that to be a great way to put my Monster Manual knowledge to use. One of my current characters is a Steel Dragon, named Razylym, who's taken an alias and now lives a double life as a wandering gentleman/knight named Stian. Now, the reason this picture really intrigues me is this:

I have a few more planned Dragon characters. One of them is named Jin in his human form, and he's a Gold Dragon who's the Emperor of an Eastern-inspired nation. One of my others is a female Silver Dragon whose human form is known as Arcene, who is the Queen of a standard Fantasy / Medieval European Kingdom. In my story, Jin and Arcene meet while defending their lands from a shared enemy, and they fall in love, eventually marrying and merging their Kingdoms. Here's where me seeing this picture factors into this...

...I was planning for them to eventually have a son, with said Prince being a Silver-Gold Dragon hybrid, but I couldn't find a picture to represent him. I also can't find one to portray the villain of the plot, who's going to be a cruel, diabolical tyrant who is actually an ancient, Fiendish Black / Red Dragon hybrid named Gyrtufel.

I was wondering, and I know this is asking a lot, but, since you're so good at drawing Dragons, do you think you could help me out with these hybrids? I've already got two official (taken from the Forgotten Realms Wiki, since they have pics from the Monster Manuals) pictures for Jin and Arcene's Dragon forms, and I've made avatars for their human forms, but I can't find anything for the prince and the Tyrant...could you please consider helping?"

So...what do you think?

Ah, I'm afraid I cannot fulfill your request for free (you're in commission territory) and I'm not taking commissions for a while. I'm only working on personal interests because commissions have stressed me out way too much and constrained my creativity. Best of luck, though!

If this isn't serious, I'm getting really curious what is serious to you, because this looks amazing! I really love your way of picturing Nidoking. c:

It's not 'serious' because I was super sloppy with the shading and took no time with it. xD
