Personal - Golden Curls by TwilightSaint Personal - Golden Curls by TwilightSaint
~~~

More practice and personal work in between studying and commissions... I actually sketched this guy back in...June, methinks. I'm glad I waited until I got this style in my arsenal to colour him out.

He was going to be green...but then my love of tans and earthy colours came out, and he now even has some fancy leopard-inspired marks.

Time taken - about one hour.

Constructive criticism is welcome! commissions in this style are still available. ^^

Enjoy! :D

This is a very good piece you have here, definitely better than any dragon I drew. One oddity I see overall is the kinks in the tail. A few places could be smoothed out a bit. This could also be just , me but the front shoulder seems to be odd. I'm sure it's correctly done, but that's just my opinion. X3
Like I said before though, this is very good and I like it a lot! I don't think I'm the best at drawing dragons myself so I wouldn't consider my critic to live by, but it's something! Thanks for your time.

ooooo! ok! where to start!?

First, I would like to say that I must love earthy colors too because I adore your color scheme.
Second, I give you props for making the background so detailed. I especially like the shadow/faded versions of your dragon.

Now, for that actual dragon. I will start with the few things I have against it. The upper part of his body, the chest, is a little bulky in comparison to his legs. His tail is a little too sharp when it changes directions but that is a simple opinion, it actually fits the style nicely. Last, his left front paw's fingers (that's a mouthful) are smaller than his right front paw's fingers.

Now for the wonderful complements. I love the slim look to the dragon, his pose, his claws, his horns, especially love his design, and (despite what I said above) I love his tail. You did a great job on this picture and to be honest, the items I pointed out above are only noticeable to those looking for them.
