  8. Very nice stuff, Dean. Thanx for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day.

  9. I love Photoshop too …. I don’t draw anything because it would not look anywhere near as wonderful as this!

    • Thank you very much :). I’m sure if you painted in photoshop everyday you would be able to as well. Check out my first paintings I uploaded on my blog a year and a half ago. they are embarrassing bad :). It’s all about mileage. Anyone can learn to paint, It just takes time.

  10. Glad you visited my blog. Love your art. You should keep checking my story. I thunk youre going to enjoy it as it progresses. 😉

  11. love your 3-D renderings. I am just starting drawing after being away from the sketch pad for what seems a millineum

    • Thank you. I am glad you like my 3d art. Glad to hear your returning to drawing. I find that drawing is one of those skills that if I stop drawing for a long length of time, I will eventually get very rusty and will have to retrain myself a little before I gets back in the groove. So I found the solution for me is to make sure to sketch a Little a day. Another great tool i use for warming up is drawing still life. I know it might sound boring but with a still life you don’t have to draw flowers in vases. You can use anything for your still life as long as you can understand how the lighting is effecting the forms. Sorry for my rambling. Best of luck with your drawing and your dragon story

  12. Your drawings are beautiful 🙂
    Just asking what is the software you use to draw these pictures ?

    • Thank you so much :). I paint digitally in Photoshop most of the time. I usually start with a blank canavs or I scan in one of my charcoal sketches and block in the rough shapes quickly with the brush tool then the refine with small brushes as I move on. General to specific. I use a wacom tablet, a pen like device that allows me to draw on computer like I could on paper.
