Nice and Easy by Skysealer Nice and Easy by Skysealer
Shaded sketch commission for gryphonpaws over at FA of her dragon character (whom gave me artistic liberties to play with C8)

I'm not sure where the time went today. When I had this image rough sketched I started plans on the second sketch of the day and somewhere in there I fell asleep for an hour after I took my dinner break... I guess my lack of sleep is finally catching up to me.

Anyway. My name is Sky and I like the color blue.

Tools: Photoshop CS, Wacom Intuos 3
Time: Unrecorded, started and finished today
Music: Pandora Radio

Character gryphonpaws @ FA

Wow, this dragon looks so much like the way I imagine my iwn to be, excpet for the color / mane/ number of horns...
The way you draw is absolutely amazing.
Do you mind if I heavily reference my own drawings on this one ? I wouldn't want to be accused of art stealing.

Incredible work on scales, they're so accurate and nicely detailed, they add a lot of detail in the picture. Drawing them was certainly worth it.

I wish my scales were this good :( Might also be a good idea to get a tablet, that might help with contrast and not look like everything is all blending together.
Nice sketch!

My tablet is perhaps the single best artistic investment I've made thus far, I highly recommend. :)

So if I was to get one, any specific model you would recommend? I was thinking of getting a Wacom Bamboo Capture, I've heard their pretty good.

Skysealer Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Bamboos are pretty awesome but I'm not very familiar with the new Capture. I personally use a Wacom intuos3 but you can get the same experience with a normal bamboo tablet. C: The program/product doesn't make the artist after all!

What do you call a lineart and what a sketch? I don't get it. >.>

:iconskysealer:
Skysealer Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sketches tend to have flaws and far less attention in terms of detail and anatomy where as with line arts I will pay utmost attention to details and try to perfect them the best way I can. :> It's basically going from 'tight' to 'even tighter'.

I love how the blue complements the orange and yellows of the eyes and mane :3. If you think away the scales the design is quite simplistic, I like that. I do love how your scales always flow so nicely along the forms of the body, it makes sense and therefor it looks very natural.

Agreed. The colour blue is :iconblueheartplz: BEST COLOUR EVER!!! NO COMPETITION! XD

I don't think I could ever do this in just one day! D8 Such beautiful lines and love contrast between them warm and cool colours. I hope can I come up with poses as well as you can someday. And your anatomy always looks so spot on. I really must catch one of your streams so I can watch the magic in action.:)
