airbrushed dragon.. by drakhenliche airbrushed dragon.. by drakhenliche
Coloured version of this: [link]

Scanned horribly, the original colours are much nicer but I couldnt' fix 'em in photoshop :(
Dug out my airbrush now that I finally got some decent cleaning equipment for it.
I had to do a bit of photoshop tidying on it since the paint bled all around the horn :( Still, if anyone wants the original as is (i.e. with wobbly horn), ye can have it for £20 :P

I like this pic, but i think that neck is too thin.. Or.. How should i say it.. Well i guess you know what i mean. I think you'r good drawing dragons. ^^ Good work, i would like to see some this, or some other dragon, done by chalk. *thumb up* I like the black-and-white version more.

Awesome :)

My trouble is I've so many different media to play with I practice in fits and starts with them, getting bored, moving to other stuff then later coming back again (I'm back with brush ink at the mo' doing more comic pages). I need discipline to just sit and work at something for more than a couple of days!!

Nice colour choices, quite different than what I thought. :) I really like the finny thing on the head for some reason.

Thanks! Since this was my first colouring attempt with the ab, I decided to stick with simple colours I knew how to control rather than trying something outlandish.

Wow, your talent and use of different media is breathtaking, the skill you display as well.... its mind-boggling how one person can possess so much talent. Love it, simply love it.

P.S. sorry I didn't comment back on perveiw works or comments. I've been busy... Sorry ^^;

lol, no worries! I'm terrible with comments meself - but I at least try to reply to the ones folks're kind enough to leave me.
And thank you! The trouble is I dabble whereas I should sit and learn to use a media properly (so's I can churn out more than just dragons!!).

Thanks! Luckily I have Photoshop but on the original I'm really upset about the paint running round the horn.

Cheers :) I was in two minds about practicing on this since I didn't really want to ruin the inks (and my printer wasn't working so working on a print wasn't going to happen). I'm glad I bit the bullet and attacked this in the end, I'm just really upset at how I ruined the horn on the original (thank goodness for Photoshop!).
