Character Designs – Alex and Cruz

Sorry, I’ve been neglecting my blog. I was busy with commissions for the last few days. I wanted to do some concept art for Alex and Cruz. A comic my friend and I are working on.We are shifting from ‘anthro’ animals to ‘normal’ ones.  My friend Cruz needed a head shot of his character for the comic. I thought I would do a bust for each. Although the final designs will not be as details as this. I enjoy painting details, It’s very therapeutic. Currently Alex is a white dragon, but I have been on the fence about making him a golden dragon. For both characters, I used reference images of my friends and my own face to attempt to inject as much of our personalities into the characters .  the eyes will probably be bigger in the final designs.

Daily Painting No.23 – Angry Dragon

Here be… another dragon ;D. It was a busy day. A dragon type of day. He doesn’t look too happy to see me. I been speeding up due to myself learning to use the lasso tool to quickly block in the masses and then painting it. I am really proud of the plated scales on his serpentine neck. If I only had another hour to finish this 😦 . Why do I paint so late at night? Self critique: the horns need clean up and refinement, the smoke coming out of the nostrils , scales on back need some highlights. Time spent on this painting 1 hour, created in photoshop.
