This is Aria :) She has the power to control time. When she was born, her left eye was blind. One side of her face ages faster than the other. I'm not sure if you can tell, my sketch in my Harry Potter sketch book is a lot more detailed. The lighting is a bit blah, but i will be drawing more of Aria and the others in other anatomic forms! c: C&C please!

Also let me know which of the pure-heart unicorn you like the most and want to see more of! :)

moo492 [Profile] 2013/2/13 - 20:27:41
Oh I really like this one! She's definitely my favorite. I like how you drew her markings, and the front view. Front view horses I find are always hard.
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 18:27:50
I love how you give these unicorns their unique-looking horns, it's very cool. I really love the pose you chose for this one, the ears are very pretty and it's nice to see a horse head from the front. I love the shading on the mane and the interesting background. Very nice.

cool i really like this

I've decided to name him Akane. Here's a frontal view of his mask. This is my attempt at shading with white. Some areas are feel are good, others... He'll be a good character to practice white shading on.

I have been very negligent and have not drawn here often lately. I will try to do better because you guys are just plain SUPERB and I want to keep getting better at this digital art gig. You guys are awesome!

C&C as always.

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 18:29:5
I really like this character's design! That mask is super cool, and I love the markings on the black fur.

Another dragon/human :)
This is Iczuus, sorta like a water-ice dracaur. Well, not much of a dragon centaur like my other one, Ebony. I think Ebony's fire or something......I must sound confusing.....I'm just sleepy I guess.

this is my OC hooray i finally have one im proud of!
this took ages...
this is Blaire he is a dragon horse hybrid hythrods)
he has a saddle on because he has an owner. the Hythrods have such a strong bond with their rider they can communicate using telepathy. this means the rider doesnt need a halter to control their animal. Hythrods are commonly called 'light horses" they live in glow forests. ther reason their spots glow is because they feed on glow mushrooms and other critters that live in the forest which glow as well ( they are carnivorousness)
the light horses are the fastest land dragon hybrid that has existed. the spot patterns are unique to each light horse and no two patterns are ever the same.
the necklace around Blaires neck symbolises which herd he came from and determines which power he will posses when he is older there are many powers the light horses can gain.
i will draw these different powers soon :)

werewolfgirl1343 [Profile] 2013/2/13 - 0:32:5
opps i meant *carnivorous* - stupid dictionary
tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/13 - 9:24:11
Reminds me of the ''horses'' from Avatar for some reason...
tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/13 - 9:25:42
So, before it autosended... I think you did a good job with the glow.
werewolfgirl1343 [Profile] 2013/2/14 - 1:17:49
ARGHH why cant i think straight, i actually meant they are OMNIVORES not CARNIVOURS!!!! sorry about that and if it caused any confusion....
^^ thanks, i like the glow effect too, it was fun to do and it was kind of based off the horse creatures from Avatar, but i made some of my own changes to make it my own unique creature

sorry I can't bear to submit anything to Testings, so my pony is here now.

Clear Skies~ ... I don't really have a backgrond for her ^^`

miles [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 21:32:15
she's totally cute! and you mimicked the style perfectly. i also really like how you put a lot of depth into a 2D styled drawing. she is very awesome.
kanadra [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 23:4:59
She's adorable. :)
Her cutie mark looks like an eye!
I really like the shading as well.
reluctantbrony [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 8:39:45
Cutie pone. :3

Now I'm wondering how many bronies there are here... Four? Five? A few, anyway. XD
bludrgn [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 14:12:54
Thanks for the comments~! C: I had never colored her in before, her eyes and mark now remind me of fried eggs :3
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 16:51:42
I love that her curly mane and tail look like clouds!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 21:47:49
I really like this design, that cutie mark is adorable. She looks like she would fit perfectly into the show.

A wolf deer creature. He was fun to make. Names?

Any tips on how to do shading for white? I end up either getting too dark or it blends to much. I can never do it the way it should look.

C&C as always!

lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 16:57:25
Oh man, I think this guy looks really cool! I love his front legs. Super cool. And his antlers are wicked.

I drew up a quick red line for anatomy, hope you don't mind.

As to shading white! Oh gosh, it's the bane of my existence. Really it depends on each individual drawing. A lot of times I like to use a gray-purple, or a gray-blue. It just depends on what other colors there are in the picture!
miles [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 21:33:7
what a cool critter! i love the shading on the antlers. incredible work.
um as for shading white, use light colours. as lemmy said it really depends on the rest of the picture.
saffron_shadow [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 16:22:14
Oh wow! I absolutely adore this creature, especially the 'mask' (?) Deer/wolf hybrids are one of my favourite combinations but you've taken this to a whole different level!! Lemmy's done a good job of redlining this but in my opinion the body in the redline needs to be a bit longer. Just my opinion. Love the spots :)

As for shading whites, I always find shading subtly with light blues and creams adds more depth and looks much more realistic than just grey. Also if you ever think the shading is too dark add a darker background, it makes the things in the foreground stand out more too.
lady_miragon [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 18:42:38
Thanks for all the critique and comments! :cD I'll try and incorporate the tips in the next drawing I am working on on him. I'm trying a front view of his mask. I think it will look AWESOME! I already have a sketch on paper and it looks pretty sweet.

wolven [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 15:57:11
Really could not be bothered doin any more to this. I can''t draw regular broadswords, so I drew a bastard sword for Cane. this one's a mythical blade, by the name of Aurora (Or the blade of the Northern winds). Seven were forged for the Martyrs, using unknown methods which make it untarnishable, and unbreakable by all methods, Rivalling the unique craftmanship of The Dauthdaert Spears. Aurora was kept in Volunrend. Cane steals it (with the swords approval) in his attempt to escape the city, for the blade that The Elves of Du Welden Varden made for him was broken with ease by a group of Dark-elf refugees, one of whom challenged Cane. He was imprisoned because of the laws on public fighting in Volunrend, but he esacped. When it is drawn, it can summon a northern wind to blow for the wielder's advantage, and it radiates a light from the blade, which gives the sword its namesake. It's pommel is a void gem, with access to a large amount of magic. (if only Cane coul use it!... ... ... Teehee)
It is known to have at least two sister swords, of unknown names.

Any C&C would me much appreciated.

[anon]serinanight_is_to_lazy_to_log_in 2013/2/11 - 16:51:47
I would suggest google searching swords, bastard swords, wavy swords, etc. if you are unsure of how to draw swords. You could even look up something like blue blade sword for example of colors. Things like that can help you see how things are 'supposed to look'. Also, is the blad supposed to be see-through? If not, then I would suggest making the color more solid. I like the shine/blue lights around it.
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 17:6:1
I pretty much agree with everything Sera said. It's important to look at references!

There's another thing I'd like to add. I'm aware that this is a mythical/magic sword, but the wavy edges on the blade look like wobbles rather than an intentional part of the design. Especially on the fuller. Asymmetry is good, but you need to make sure that it has a balance.

I do really like the blue glow of magic around the blade! It gives it a mysterious feel which is appropriate for such a weapon. Also, the white outline on the hilt! For some reason I really enjoy it. Haha.
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 17:18:50
I particularly like the color of the sword, kind of icy blue. I wonder what the sister swords are like? o.0
miles [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 21:34:10
wow really interesting backstory.
i also really love this sword.. everything about it is just fantastic. the shape, the shading.. that hilt! fantastic job.
frost_star [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 12:29:37
this has reminded me that I still have to draw your reward.
This is a really cool sword. The glowing is
catgirl [Profile] 2013/2/13 - 1:42:8
That is a really nice hilt.

I have such a hard time coming up with what swords should look like.
wolven [Profile] 2013/2/13 - 12:57:36
Firstly I would like to thank you guys for your comments. It means a lot to me really.

@serinanight- I actually used loadsa references from google whilst drawing this. The blade is supposed to be made from an ice-like material, so it was my intention not to fully colour it. however, i did kinda rush the blade, cuz' i could not be bothered using any straight lines.

@frost_star- i was thinking of that when i drew this, cuz i thought you might need a reference.

Everybody else, i'm really glad you guys like this.

Yay finished with the dragon heads. This one will represent Air, I'm still playing with the colors on this one. It's based off the Lady Amherst Pheasant, as well as some other birds throw in.

moo492 [Profile] 2013/2/10 - 18:47:19
Ooh the colours you used are as amazing as always! I love how the scales look like feathers, and the twisty horns look so cool! Again, those clouds are amazing, what tool do you use to make them?
digidragon [Profile] 2013/2/10 - 20:23:58
Thank you very much. As for the clouds it was almost all with the pen tool. I used air brush to lightly add that fuzziness to the edges to give it that look that wind is blowing it.
infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 2:52:7
I love the way you drew those little scales on the lower jaw lol. Love those clouds too. :)
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 15:43:16

It might have taken you forever, but it really paid off! Those details on the clothing are beautiful :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 8:32:2
That dress is simply amazing. I love all the details on it, it must have taken you a while. You did a great job.

This is the last I shall be posting with regards to my fanfic, unless anyone else asks me to do something for it. the link, if anyone still cares to read it is below. This picture in turn, is the final part of chapter 9, when Cane's Northern Dragon, soon to be named Daedrid 'hatches' from his egg. To be quite frank about it, I am very pleased with what i have managed to do on this, but i would still like some info on how to do foresty backgrounds... cuz i really suck at them. If anyone has any comments or constructive criticism to give, feel free.

So forever ago (2008) someone had a contest on the boards for artistic nudity and you had to attempt a style you hadn't done before. I ended up coming in third place, but I was never satisfied with my entry. So I did this.

This is TAPS, lilnaugrim's character, for winning the Christmas Dragon contest.
Hope you like her as much as i do.
If not i will be more than happy to redraw her.
She was so fun to draw.=3

please move to hoards.
miles [Profile] 2013/2/11 - 21:40:27
fantastic work! i really love the colours in the background.
though, TAPS looks rather detached from the rest of the picture.. mostly due to the lack of definition and use of pencil tool anywhere else in the picture. i reckon if you want a picture to look more complete, be consistent!
amyd [Profile] 2013/2/12 - 22:9:1

Okay I lied, this one was suppose to be the last one but I actually have to do another one. These dragons are concepts for my final series in my drawing class. We have to draw 4 drawings that have to be related in some way. I'm going to have each of the my 4 drawings exhibit a elemental dragon.
So the first dragon I drew is going to be water, the snake one is fire, this one is earth, and the last one will be air. This one is based off a horse, it looked better on paper though. I'm trying to make the elemental dragons more unique than what most people think of when they draw the elements. And I needed these to be in profile view, so I can use them as reference later. So we'll see how it goes, I want to post the final pieces on deviantart if I like them.

moo492 [Profile] 2013/2/9 - 16:41:54
These dragons are really creative! I never would have even thought of dragons like these! I really like the horse-based concept for this one, and that mane looks really cool. I love the colours and textures you used for the grass, and those clouds are to die for!
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/9 - 17:45:18
You have made the most amazing dragons!! I am at a loss of breath! Pure epicness!! I am digging the mane, scales, and snout. Also, the backround is to die for!
lovelylonely [Profile] 2013/2/9 - 17:56:53
That background astonishing, wowweewow *-*
and I especially love the coloring on - please excuse me if I get this wrong - the crystal-looking horns. c:

Yeah his horn are crystal-based. Thanks for the comments :) I am happy with how to background came out., so I'm glad it looks nice.
