Comish - Star Trekking by TwilightSaint Comish - Star Trekking by TwilightSaint
~~~

Gradient-shaded comish for :icongenmaverick1989: of his dragon, Maverick, in Ultimate or Holy form, feral, of course.

I had the pleasure to do this guy in his normal form as an anthro piece as well as a head-shot, and I'm really happy I was able to do his feral Ultimate form as well! Maverick wanted him to look as majestic as possible. And what's more majestic than a dragon running determinedly to engage in battle with his foe? Or heed to his friend's call? Or just running up to leap into the air? (More likely the latter.) Also a pose I haven't really done before.

Dang, this shading~ I seriously had a lot of fun with this piece - I feel like I used a lot of different techniques...but I really didn't? I added more texture than usual and coloured the line-art.

Oh no! I must explain the title. So Maverick's ref had blue/black clouds in the background, so I went with a similar colour scheme and used this [link] as the background pic...which made me think of the Level Up menu in Skyrim, and then I was thinking of Star Trek, and it went downhill from there.

Anyway, I'm TwilightSaint, and I love white dragons and space and Skyrim.

Commissions are still open~

Thanks a lot Mav! Hope ya like!

This picture is beautiful. The colors in the background blend nicely and the stars look realistic; very realistic. The dragon has perfect anatomy and the proportions are correct. Perspective is also easily found and makes the picture look nice. The detail of this picture is absolutely breathtaking, and I just cant stop staring at those eyes-I like the glow. I am absolutely stunned at how you made the background, again. Your technique is unlike any I have seen before! I am very much astounded my your picture. When I saw this in my messages I thought, "oh that looks cool, I think I'll check it out" I believe that was an understatement. The mastery of this picture just blows my mind-I'm really hoping to see more of your pictures soon. Again, I think this is one of the best pictures I have EVER seen-keep up the good work!!! :D

Lawl if it weren't for the stripes and the differences in the tail, I would have thought I was looking at a feral mirror image of myself :P

Lol, nice. This was a commissioned piece - any similarities will have to be taken up with the commissioner.

Such a beautiful and clearly powerful dragon. He is indeed feral! The pose is so skillfully executed I'm slightly jealous. There is something familiar about your style which I can't quite put my finger on, however.
