Hungry Dragon (D27)

dragon-hybrid-2test

This dragon looks hungry… Run Sir. Knight! Run!

I was only going to spend an hour painting today’s daily… I spent 3hours on it. I got stuck rendering the mouth (Mostly the top apparently), I have not rendered dragon’s mouth too much, it was a new challenge.  What do you think of this dragon? Does it look too generic or do you think it’s design is decent?

Alex’s Mug

alex9

A experimental painting of my dragon Alex. I wanted to fuse more lizard like qualities into him. I might of added too much. I spent too much time revising this painting over and over.  I’m on the fence if I like the redesign or not. I started this with no prelim sketches. Bad move. This is my first painting using Manga Studio 5, so that is probably another reason I spent longer on it. I’ve used MS4 in the past  but MS5 is amazing and has the same photoshop tools I NEED to use and are important in my workflow like masking, selection tools, and transform tools. I hope that it will also let you save tool presets but I haven’t found it yet. I MIGHT just be able to leave Photoshop for good. CC you later Adobe 🙂

Wyvern (Dragon with wing arms) (Monster 15)

I’ve returned to the monster painting project. I thought it would be best something furn. This was painted inArtrage. I found out how to turn the ‘3d’ effect off the paints. This helped me blend the color more like I would in Photoshop. Speaking of photoshop, Artrage’s solution to masks is ‘stencils’ and they are driving me crazy, I keep accidentally moving them and cant find a way to lock them. I am happy with this quick painting and am getting closer to thinking like a painter.
