Part 1/4 gradient commissions for :icondracona-fin: - some of her characters and some for her friends! ^^

This is Daranau, the lightning dragon. ^^ Lighting dragon...tiger dragon...lightning tiger dragon. Tiger lightning dragon. :D

He's so pretty - I really enjoyed colouring him. :)

Thank you Dracona-Fin! Still got a few more to go!

Enjoy!

I love it. It's very well colored, the colors go well with the outline and the background is fantastic. It's cool how you made it look sort of like fire or a burning page maybe? I especially love the way you made it look like a tiger (markings and color-wise) and still made it as awesome as a dragon <3 I also like the little line of red coming from it's arrowhead on its tail, it gives the background more dimension. It's extremely detailed, the toes, the stripes, and even the spikes! <3 Overall I give this Deviation a 4 1/2 out of 5. =)
What do you think?

Awesome!!! :D You could also say Tigning Dragon, random thought. :P And a random question, but are red and orange your favorite colors? It seems like you use them a lot, not that I'm complaining.

:squee: I seriously want to bounce around and off the walls right now (and in an unrelated note I'm sure my cat could totally show me how).

This is just amazing!
:worship:
As I said when I PMed you, I have been stalking your dA for a while! And its pieces like this (regardless of who they are for) that really make it worthwhile. Soooooo much attention to detail, the toes (nom nom) and stripes!! Many people I know stay well away from stripes!

There is also a good portion of his personality in this I believe, and that's prolly me being bias, but his squished face, ragged quills (from use) and the general feeling that he's constantly in motion.

Thank you so much for putting time and effort into this for me :hug: I'm glad to hear that he was an enjoyable challenge

Haha, thank you very much! ^^ I really appreciate it, and it means a lot to make artwork like this for you and others! <3 I'm really glad you like him! :D

Ah man, I love stripes! :XD: I think...in my Planetary Dragon Series, there's been like at least 3 striped dragons each year? Lol! And this guy himself was really fun and unique - I love his face! I played off the slim, lithe, and almost cat-like feel I got from seeing his refs. ^^ You're very welcome, and thanks again!

^^ Planetary Dragon series :heart: so much love for that series; I actually have several downloaded and saved as inspiration/ideas for a Gravity dragon I want to make in the future when I have time ^^; So not that great with design ideas sometimes. ^^;

Daranau here was actually an Adoption case… I’m technically his third owner as his previous ones disappeared. :D funny you should mention cats. He occasionally brings abandoned kittens home ^^;

<3 Thanks! I always look forward to making the new dragons. ^^ And that's so cool! Feel free to get ideas from them, or even drop me a note if you're having troubles with a design. I usually find that the possibilities are so endless, it's sometimes difficult to choose what to do! X)

Aw, poor Daranau! *pats his head* Heh, he's like an adopted kitten himself, then! :meow:

I also find the series very informative :D and the fact you kept Pluto in there made me very happy (it was my favourite planet until it got 'demoted'). The black and white holes also fascinate me with their glowiness.

:D I struggle with design for the same reason, at times, I want to put soooo much in and then don't know what to cull. Also as its for an RP site its always a question of just how much one can bend the rules. Gravity dragons tend to be on the more simple side, longer than they are tall; mostly black with blue or violet highlights... often in the form of constellations. They also tend to have antennae like spines... sooo much stuff out there to play with.

^^ yes *plays with his quills* I had to give him a home when I saw him. ^^; Dichroic is also an adopt case ^^; not sure if that's a good or a bad thing that 50% of my dragons on Sekkai are adoption cases.

Aw man, I couldn't leave out Pluto! And his lovely moon *cough*girlfriend*cough* was a great opportunity for some cool art.

They sound awesome! Sometimes the simplest designs can have the most impact, especially when paired with unique, empowering poses and spiffy lighting effects. :iconsparklesplz:

All the Pluto love :heart: and of course his GF

I just love how you give your dragons this sense of "what the hell, I'll just stop here and pose mid-air for a moment, no sweat". It's this lazy, elegant, confident, simple aerial acrobatic pose...
