@EZKOI - looking good.

So everyone doing dragons + bowser made me want to ditch my current thing and try my hand at a dragon. Alas, I don't know crop about anatomy, so:


Rough sketch is rough. How does the sketchy anatomy look?
I also tried to do some foreshortening... which I am also not overly great at.

EDIT: Somehow I did not spot that awful pointy elbow. XD

Dunno if I want to submit it to the challenge, I just did it because the palette looked tasty and fun to work with.

@Drazelic: I would post it. This palette suits your style. I would doing something extra with the fire, though. Add some more light depth to it.

Hello,

Here's what I have so far



I'm totally stuck, motivation has disappeared completelly :( I've been staring this thing for hours unable to change single pixel in it...

So I'm uploading this here, hopefully it forces me to finish this...

I like it ! But it's a bit too complex, too much little parts = difficulties to focus our eyes where we should do, IMO.

Bugger, and I'd gotten pas the rough shading part to the detailing. I swear I read unrestricted. Oh well, I I shall chuck that in my vault of unfinished and do something fitting the specks.

It was effectively 'lunging' at human enemies, about to wipe out a helicopter. I was really just using it as an excuse to draw a dragon again, because I have not done so since I was a kid. So, I might draw a smaller one playing with a present or something - more in theme with the challenge.

I just joined, so this will be my first entry to the challenge : )

wip:

I'm pretty much a noob at making pixel art, and hopefully that's the reason I can't use the colors correctly.

Welcome to pixeljoint! Very nice. The wing seems a little too strait on the left side though.

Gah. All noobs are better than me! It makes me feel bad XP I'm a noob too, but I still feel bad. Whatever, though. I'm doing nicely, don't feel like posting wips.

Keep in mind, she said new to PIXEL ART, not art in general. The form and shading and whatnot learned from other art media will transfer to the others. It's just learning how to use it from there.

Just a doodle for fun. Don't mind the canvas size:)

By theme, I kind of meant fitting of the colour pallet. My large piece and style I was doing for it wasn't really fit the pallet anyway. So, I'll probably do my big dragon in an alternate pallet.

Current design:


Just can't get my sleeping dragon right. The entire concept is literally a dragon sleeping in front of the fireplace. ^_^

So far working on the cave walls. Ignore the pink line as that is just a horizon like line I was using for perspective.

Trying out something, am exited where it will lead.

Working on the floor and the walls, finally got the dragon to a state I like after bulk changing. Probably a few places I could fix but for now I'm happy with my sleeping dragon.
Any feedback is welcome.
