Twist by cryslara Twist by cryslara
Another speedpaint! For *RiaX3X this time.

There are a bunch of anatomy wiggly bits in this that shouldn't be there but I think it's the first time I have ever uploaded a sunny, blue sky into my gallery so rejoicing is in order. ;)

Critique is still certainly welcome. This was a quicker piece for me but I should learn to not make as many silly mistakes so feel free to point* them out.

*and laugh

Software: Photoshop CS2
Tools: Wacom Intuos 3
Music: Gotye

I'll be honest and tell that I actually flipped it around - I painted it in portrait but when I was playing with the rotate tool, I loved this angle so much more. :D Thank you.

I can't quite remember actually. =P I'd say 4-5 hours maybe? (I can also never remember the framework I use for info in my descriptions so there's sort of a lucky dip to what info gets included with each painting).

Thanks. :D I don't usually paint blue skies and so it was interesting to do a painting that wasn't tinted by a sunset.

Nice angle! I like seeing artworks where the subject isn't just flying parallel to the ground.

Thanks, I do too. :D It was this comment that inspired me to do the tilted horizen in Soft Ocean.

I love this, thanks so much again for doing the trade for me. I love the pose and to me the anatomy looks great. I don't see anything to laugh about :)

It was plenty of fun. :D I'll send you a jpeg shortly of just the clouds, though they're pretty unrefined and weren't intended to stand alone without the dragon. :)

Nothing to be critical about, I love your art. :D Such a fun-looking pose.

I noticed that too. :D It's mostly the lovely bright colour scheme that does it. I love red dragons, they're a joy to paint.

Thank you. :) The lines for the belly scales were scribbled in a little thoughtlessly, I admit. :P

I think the dragon is too much centered. I'd expand the canvas a little and paint more clouds, or just resize the dragon a bit.
everything else is just :heart: I really adore your cloud pictures. You should try drawing another flying creature, like a gryphon, sometime :)
Reply
:iconcryslara:
cryslara Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2008
You're completely right about how centred it is - I can't believe I didn't notice that! It could've used a litte more cloud to balance it out.
My next painting to upload is actually a gryphon that I finished this arvo. :D I should have that up sometime soon!
