Portrait of Chris the Dragon

anthro dragon halftone experiment

Portrait my character Chris the dragon, a character that is stuck in my head and refuses to die. This portrait was a experiment to see if I blend the painterly look with halftones,I think it might of worked. I’m happy that I understand lighting now, and I no longer guess when shading. After I finish Becky Wisdom’s portrait tomorrow, next weeks portrait theme will be ‘human faces that have been exaggerated but still look realistic’. Right now I feel frustrated with my art. I have been drawing for the last 6 months learning a more realistic style that concept artist and some illustrators use. When I visit the galleries of more polished and advanced artists and I know the steps and techniques that they used instantly when i look at their images, yet I feel I myself cannot produce something at that nature yet. I will just keep trying to improve. that’s all I can do.

  1. Its funny how you doubt yourself despite producing absolutely fantastic work! Its your own style, I have dabbled in a little bit of photoshop rendering etc and its no where near as good as this…but at the same time its a completly different style – and i like it. I think we can never stop learning, we will always want to do better and get better but there will always be people who wish they could do what we do…whether its in drawing or other areas of life.
