Comish - Storm Rider by TwilightSaint Comish - Storm Rider by TwilightSaint
~~~

Second gradient-shaded commission for Blue443 of FA of his dragon Blue and his rider...

Blue here isn't actually Blue, per-say, but is actually named Storm at this point in his life. This was when the witch here riding him (in her epic steampunk-inspired gear,) named him Storm, and they were a team...generally doing ferocious things, hehe, hence Blue/Storm's epic growl!

I tried to do a bit extra with the shading...like doing the more webbed shading on the wings and also adding some ambient bright blue! I thought it added some more dynamics colour-wise and also kind of looks like they're in a lightning storm since I didn't do a full background on this piece...and also hence the darkened, turbulent blue texture.

Thanks Blue! Hope you like! ^^

Enjoy! :D

Blue err Storm looks scary there ^^ he says im not going to nom you, im going to Bite and not let go till your limb lets go from your torso XD

thanks for the epic piece twi ^^

as twi said this is from my characters past back in his younger days when he was taking in by the storm witch. she was not some one who was kind to others and Storm was more than happy to do her bidding

and taking in dont mean kidnap but rather found him lost and as a savage beast and it was her who taught him to talk and educated him. though grant it she taught him to be evil but non the less there bond was like mother and son

Yep! They're all hand-altered mixes of various free textures. I'll erase parts of one and merge them with others, and then the colours all vary by the settings and piece. ^^ Thanks!

Well that's clever...

Just asking because I hate the ways my backgrounds look, so I am paying close attention the the backgrounds of others for help. Thanks for the tip!
