A speed paint commission for ~heli-horse of Goldammer!

I went way out of the line to work on this one, but inspiration bit me in the bud and I could not tear myself away from this one. I really enjoyed working on this in between my reference sheet commissions; it helped me loosen up a bit, I think.

It may be noticeable that the quality in this speed paint is different from my past SPs, I'm trying for a more refined yet quick approach and I succeeded with this one. Of course the inspiration bug definitely helped, so we'll see how quick I am for future speed paints of this caliber. I'm looking forward to the challenge!

Is he wearing a skull as a helmet, or does he actually have a double jaw?

Absolutely GORGEOUS. You've outdone yourself on this one, Sky! I love how the lava seems to glow against the dark background, and of course that dragon looks ferocious X'D

Ever thought of making a coloring tutorial? It looks really good!

Skysealer Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have given it some thought, but I don't stick to just one color style so it'd be very difficult for me. I tend to experiment all the time with different coloring styles. Dx

I see. Well the more styles the better! :D
Because if you have one style it could cause troubles.
Sometimes you draw something and you're like:
"But this color-style doesn't fit at all!"

At least I've had that once. ^^;

You always succeed so well :la: You just keep getting better and better each year 0-o I wonder how good you will be in like 10 years time x-x We wont be able to tell the difference between your paintings and photos! XD I love how you experiment with different techniques! It makes your gallery much more interesting! I really like the style you have here, its so eye-catching! I was wondering, you always seem to have some sort of texture in the BG giving it a sort of paper-like look, it always looks so good but I have no idea how you do it, have you actually got a texture in the BG you paint over or do you use a different technique?

You're too kind, Sezaii! I hope to be relatively further in my artistic endeavors by the ten year mark, but you never know! I'm also glad that you like my experimentation with styles, it's been a great learning venture so far! As for the texture you mentioned, I simply add a tiny bit of noise. I used to add an actual texture set to overlay pretty much all of my pictures, but I only use those in reference sheets now.

Well I generally like artists that actually keep to one style so then I can identify their artwork, but somehow your the ONLY artist I love who can stick to a style BUT also mess around with different techniques and keep that 'SkySealerishness' (dont ask XD). Whereas me, I every time I upload a new picture it looks like a different artist has drawn it cuz I change my technique so regularly!

Skysealer Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I always found it relatively healthy to experiment, and experiment often! Not only are you more open to trying new things, learning new approaches along the way, but you can more easily establish a style that sits well with the artist and flows naturally with their medium of choice. Adapting is key in my opinion of course (and only my opinion!), so I'm glad that you take it as a compliment to my artwork rather than a detriment. c:

Yes, I think so too :3 Only i do really wish I had an eye-appealing style like you too, then I would get best of both ^^ no problem!
