A eastern style dragon looking into the sky disjointedly I was going to develop the dragon into a finished painting yet got bored with it. I croped him down so the unfinished tail is no longer in the picture. This painting will remain unfinished.
My first attempt a landscape painting the tells some sort of story. And my first ‘concept art’ style painting. I have been inspired by concept artists that paint entire scenes at a whim and at a highly readable style. I want to be able to tell stories with my paintings, I just never knew how, I usually just focused on characters and simplified backgrounds but not the story. I been drawing landscapes for a year now but I never felt like i was giving a emotion with them, That I was just making something pretty. So this is my first painting in that respect. Although there are many things I see that I could of done to make the image better, I moving on. You got to start somewhere. I want to improve on my concepts. I;ve been reading books and watching videos on how to improve on this matter. Feel free to comment.
I was painting a self portrait of my self when i got irritated with it. So after hours and of work I have painted myself as a dragon. I haven’t even colored it yet. It has a resemblance of my comic character Chip. when I showed this to my friends, they joked around and said they couldn’t see a difference (at least I hope they where joking) I am curious to try this dragon metamorphism on one of my friends as well. I could start my own army of dragon humanoid freaks. Its one of the best digital paintings I have done so far. I created it from scratch in Adobe Photoshop.
