Black and Gold Dragon by flameshaft
Black and Gold Dragon
I've been meaning to draw a dragon of some sort for a friend's birthday (last August... oops), but never really had the time nor inspiration to do so. Today, since I'm on break for the week, I finally sat down with my Wacom and got cracking~

This dragon started off as a red one... Somewhere in the middle, I decided it would look better in grey/black, so I changed it. It also started off as a standing dragon, but then I couldn't get the legs to look the way I wanted them to, so I made him sit... On a pile of rocks (I know, it looks like a bunch of clouds).

Was too lazy to cell shade, so I just shaded a bit using the Dodge and Burn tools on Photoshop.

I don't know if I like the new DA format... I can just say I'm somewhat confused at seeing this after a while off DA.......

What do you guys think?

Let's see... I first made an account on DA for faving things. Then, by :iconsognodrago:'s urging, I tried my hand at drawing.

In the two years since I started drawing, I guess I can say I improved at least a little. (Hopefully my next drawing will be better than my first one).

August 2013 (my personal favorite so far)

On the culinary side, I can say that since joining DA, I have paid a lot more attention to the visual of my desserts, and also to the methods of photography. One good example is the change in my apple tart layouts:

There's A LOT more room for improvement, though. In all areas. So I hope this great community will continue on being itself: a great, supportive, and bubbling community that bring all included to blossom~

Happy 14th, DA~ And THANK YOU for making me have this strong urge for improvement in fields I never thought I would delve into!

I like your art style (and your Project Emion's Sato's personality sounds like a lot of my own characters')
