Comish - A Break in the Clouds by TwilightSaint Comish - A Break in the Clouds by TwilightSaint
~~~

Comish for Ries of FA of the ruby-scaled dragoness, Ries, soaring over snowy mountains, and...and...a glacier! <3

This piece was a lot of fun - learned a lot - worked hard on that background and think it shows, what with the distant mountains, closer mountains, and glacier. :3 Secretly, I freaking love geography, and one of my favourite things to study in my classes was the general glacial phenomenon. So I had to make sure I got those till trails in there...and hopefully the textures on the subsequent mountains look swell.

And Ries. So Ries apparently has this scaly hide that we never found any refs for, so inshallah that's good and there won't be any tweaks. :/

Also tried to pay a bit more attention to wings and light and such.

Commissions are still open~

Thanks Ries! Hope ya like!

You're welcome as well! :D It just makes me mad when the wings are itty-bitty and it somehow still flies xD

Oh yeah, it bugs me so much when I see wings that are, like, maybe as long as the dragon's body...from the shoulders to the hips. Seriously, I'm just like 'No.' XD I guess for flying or swimming that could work, but never for extended soaring like how I like my dragons. ^^

Oh my god ikr! Or when the wings look like they are frickin 300% muscle. Way too much weight to even get off the ground. I appreciate large, leathery wings. Thank you for painting them so when my artistic skills failed me on dragons

Love the flow and movement! The tossing waves in the back and the opposing rain coming at the dragon is a really good effect! :D

I really like this. The colors and wind and everything is great. Only thing bugging me is that second wing is at such a different angle than the first one. It makes it look like the character should be turning.

Thanks! ^^ And thanks for pointing that out - I've been working on wings lately, (especially the sizes,) so I'll keep that in mind.

You drew the scales really good, I think I know what you mean with "scaly hide". The big wings in motion are so cool <3 And I like her smile, her face itself.
The background is just awesome, this somewhat foggy look, blurred, don't steal attention of the dragoness but gets its attention as well. Good combination and very good colouration :)
Just keep it up, I like to see more of such art from you.

this is really lovely! :3 the only suggestion i would have is that the head is a little too small compared to the size of the chest and rest of the dragon. other wise i love the wings and the pose :3

I like this style. She is clearly a dragon, but has some human features that make her relate-able too. Love this pose. :3
