Okay, so, I'm putting this in for the instrument contest, but I'm not positive that it'll qualify.
I was playing with textures here, as you can probably tell. This was inspired by the blue man group. If you have not seen the blue man group before, then you might as well be blind because you havn't seen anything yet! They have these wacky instruments, including the paint drum, and that is what is above.

tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/6 - 20:1:39
... I'm really sorry to say this, but I couldn't tell this was a drum instrument until I read your comment on your picture. Just thought I'd be honest.
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/6 - 20:37:30
I love all the bright colors you used! I'll take this as your entry if you want, even though your not sure if it counts. I can see that they're drums, but like Tayu said I don't know that I would have thought that when I first saw it. You can always make another entry later if you change your mind!
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/7 - 12:16:12
Thank you both (for being honest)! Yes, they are "drums", but they're technically buckets of paint beaten with sticks. They might not be a great instrument, but the blue men group also use sewer pipes for instruments, so maybe I'll make another entry. =)

I should get off the kitchen floor...But is there really any point at all ?

That took so much it's ridiculous - but I got distracted a few times, so really, more like an hour, an hour and a half tops. It was supposed to be just a doodle so it's probably wonky. A mí qué me importa.

miles [Profile] 2013/2/5 - 23:57:55
i really really love this one.. the hand that's splayed across your face is so well done and really gives yourself a barrier. the lines are also real clean, and that smoke is so bloomin cool.
inu112 [Profile] 2013/2/6 - 12:26:34
Lovely hair. :D The anatomy of the hand and the folds on the clothes are very well done. Your art is so great.

This is seriously the most fulfilling day of my life, all thanks to a stupid little offer to adopt thing I run over on my dA. So dragon-factor/lennythynn offered me jewelry for one of my many random designs, and it arrived today. They are all perfect. Custom made to my specifications, and totally worth the wait. Now, it may seem like nothing, but then I realize that these beautiful pieces of jewelry that I can WEAR IN PUBLIC and will do so many a time were mailed to me for a design! A design that I made! It is mindblowing that people think my designs are worth their time and effort (since these were finished even with life stuff that lenny had, which means a lot because I'm just a random internet person that you're taking time and effort to do this for. It gives me such hope and drive for my future, since I haven't really had a clear cut faith in my ability to make it with my dream job, concept design art. This gives me faith in myself that I can indeed do it, and maybe even make it a life career instead of a passing hobby.
Guys, you are wonderful. I know I don't draw here often but I figured it should be here for a myriad of reasons. Most importantly, this is where I got my start in the online art community. You guys are all so beautiful and so talented (even the ones who may not be masterpiece status yet, you all have so much potential) so I wanted to let you guys know, especially the ones that don't feel good about yourself or your art, that you CAN do it! I'm just a highschooler! And yet I have random people from the internet sending me stuff for little designs that I draw up on my notes or when I'm bored. HOW CRAZY IS THAT??

I'm just rambling at this point, so a lot of you probably will not read this even, but I just wanted to tell you all that you can achieve your dreams. Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll end up among the stars.

lizziecat1279 [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 17:22:47
Also used this as a reference for the pose ^^; [link]
frost_star [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 17:48:22
that was inspiring, thanks lizzycat!
lizziecat1279 [Profile] 2013/2/5 - 17:30:51
Heh glad I succeeded ^^ Not a problem, I was just getting all kinds of emotional last night <33
miles [Profile] 2013/2/5 - 23:48:18
wow lizzie that is really bloomin' awesome! i'm really happy for you. but uh-- aren't dragon-factor and lennythynn two different people?
also i really love how you drew lizzie here. she is so cute and i love how you drew the paws and the overall anatomy is astounding. it's always great seeing your stuff on the boards.
lizziecat1279 [Profile] 2013/2/7 - 20:0:5
WOOPS I knew that dragon-factor had changed her name but I durped. Meant to say dragon-factor/angelique, as she used to be known ^^;

Thanks though! The reference certainly helped with the whole anatomy thing, but thanks for the compliment still OuO I've been doing a lot of studying on anatomy and such lately.

My dorm... the things I draw when I get bored. Then I got too bored to finish. Ah well. Spent a while trying to get those books to look accurate and they still look like blobs. So do Ezio and the dragonborn. Oh wellllll

miles [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 0:57:17
mini TARDIS!!
from this picture you have a really neat dorm. i'm jealous.
really cool perspective btw, it looks so great and i like the painterly style you've got going on :3
inu112 [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 1:54:17
They're TARDIS string lights. :D They're super cool.

miles [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 20:39:56

Dragon I did on livestream,colors based of a joculator angelfish, as well as other fish.

inu112 [Profile] 2013/2/3 - 20:58:2
This is one of the best works I've seen from you. The colors are incredible and your lines are so smooth. I just love everything about this.
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/3 - 21:12:22
My gosh this is incredibly gorgeous.
An amazing use of colours that work so well together. I love those teeth and muzzle shape.
amyd [Profile] 2013/2/3 - 22:33:44
WOAH!!! '0'
This is absolutley amazing. Those colours and patterns are brilliant. I love your artworks. You draw them so well. =D
[anon]moo492_not_logged_in 2013/2/4 - 6:3:27
Woah, I love the lines, and the detail you put into the scales is amazing! It's a really unique looking dragon, I like it. :)
infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 9:46:3
Woah, love the blue in this. :)
[anon]frost_forgot_to_log_in 2013/2/4 - 15:18:40
the yellow against the blue and purple in so.....*at loss for words*......and the eye, I like how the pupil is a different shape than normal.
geckodragon [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 16:59:34
HOLY CRAP!!!! This is just.....Woah!!!! I do not even have words for how EPIC this is!!!! @_@
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 17:6:21
Neat dragon! Those colors are skillfully used!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 19:33:39
I really like he textures you used in this. All the different scales are really awesome looking, and the fins just look so real. I like the eye, too, the pupil is such an interesting shape. Beautiful work on this, the colors are gorgeous.
miles [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 20:40:54
asdfkjh why is your art always so beautiful *-*
seriously love the details and colours. your blending and colouring is never not spectacular. i love the depth you've added to the frills in the neck in particular :3
digidragon [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 22:33:40
Awww you guys are so wonderful! I can't begin to express my thanks :'D Every one of your comment means a lot to me. I too am very fond of this design, I'm thinking of making it into a character. I'm trying to draw more unique dragons, compared to the kind I usually draw.

It's funny, I remember always saying to others why their art was always so beautiful. And now people are saying it to me, that really speaks to me. It reminds me how hard I've work to get here. Thank you all so very much :)
wolven [Profile] 2013/2/6 - 16:9:9
I reiterate. We need a 'legends board' for all the truly best pieces people have submitted!

Hrr hrr I knew you'd like this song. "We're lost in the mall, shuffling through the stores like zombies" Lol. I like how the words are written like you wrote them. But I think the S is backwards. And I like the blurred out you in the background.
tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/3 - 22:38:11
Yeah you're right, on all counts; Fear of a blank planet is a freakin' amazing album, and the S is backward - writing upside down without making errors is hard work. :P
miles [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 20:41:39
this is pretty awesome :3 the fingers look a little long to me, though. like the palm is too short.

A little something I thought of; sort of a mash up between two drawings. Some of you may recognize Briar from the comic I posted on here; and Raven is from the comic I'm working on. Shade is Raven's shadow.

miles [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 20:42:10
pretty neat idea! i love how the minimal amounts of colour really stand out against the dark.

Finally done!!
This is Chaos, son of Cian, the aged ruler of the world beneath. In Chaos's case, he was not born directly from Cian. He was born with a misshapen horn and a mark on his back; symbolizing his fate to becoming next i line for the throne.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/3 - 14:55:54
This took you seven hours???!!! I love the expression, however, and the mane is brilliant.
miles [Profile] 2013/2/4 - 20:42:43
this is so awesome! i love how your colouring.
miku8mycupcake [Profile] 2013/2/5 - 6:27:24
It didn't take me seven hours, I was just doing other things as I was drawing :P hurray for multitasking! It took me at least 2 hours max.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/6 - 14:4:2

It's that accursed time of year again......o.0

Yes, Happy Valentine's Day! (even though this is a bit early) I wouldn't know if anyone remembers this guy, he used to be "suit demon" but I was able to name him "Seth" after some consideration. He escaped from his world and traveled to earth magically, (don't ask how) and found that this world suited him perfectly (get it, "suited"? And yes, I make terrible puns X___X) The girl's name is Ari, and both of them work in an office. Seth has a massive crush on Ari, which she was apparently oblivious to until recently. And honestly, if I was in that situation, I'd react that way as well....

C&C please :D (and I know, their heads are too big, I was too lazy to fix it x___x)

keidarancitygirl [Profile] 2013/2/3 - 19:21:39
I love this.
It doesn't get much better than demons in suits. Happy Valentine's Day to you as well!

i should be working on this comic but gimp is freaking out and
bird monsters

i need a name for this species since i'm planning on doing adopts of them
if you give me a really great name i'll give you a free custom
i'll also take four other customs, two male and two female

species info:
even though these creatures are quite rare, they can live in almost any part of the world. the largest population are in rain forests, where bright colors don't stand out too much and there are plenty of tall trees.
they can grow to about 4 feet tall, not counting male's crests, which can add several inches. their feathers are thickest around th head, elbows, knees, and the base of the tail. they cannot fly, but they can jump incredible distances. their mane is actually lots of long, thin, surprisingly soft feather that become coarser with age.
there is little difference between the sexes apart from their horns, crests, and some minor coloration. the males have long crests, similar to a cockatoo's, that can flare up to signal danger, intimidate rivals, or impress females. these and the long feathers on the shoulders are usually brighter than the rest. their horns have small protuberances.
both genders have small, reflective scales on the underside of their tail tip, used to communicate. they live in small familial groups that consist of a pair of leaders; a few lesser males; several females; and the chicklings, or juveniles. they can speak human languages, and many can read, but they communicate among themselves with chirps, growls, purrs, and hisses. in general, they are highly intelligent, and it is not unheard of for a group to settle in a human town. like the native americans, homosexuality is regarded positively. a gay couple will often be given a hut near the alphas'. they are an extremely spiritual and loving race, but they will fight fiercely if they must.
they tend to stay in one place, but every year, the group will leave their village and join together with the rest of the species on that continent in a central point for a single week. during this time, members of one group may transfer to another, or a couple will break apart and start a new one.

pictured here are Jinkalli (the female) and a completely random male i only colored to demonstrate the differences in coloration

so uh
help me name these bird monster things

and sorry for the long post, i'm passionate about monsters apparently

bleufire [Profile] 2013/2/2 - 21:22:46
These guys are really cool. o3o

They remind my of mantises... Eucalypse Mantae is the name I could think off. Use it if you like~
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/2/2 - 22:23:45
I really like these creatures you made up, making up creatures is something I like to do, and it's really awesome when people combine anatomies in a way that makes perfect sense, like you did here. I also like the male's coloration. As for a name, this isn't that original but you could try "Avis Monstrum"
kenderkat [Profile] 2013/2/3 - 19:46:13
thanks, both of you. owo
i'm kinda looking for more phonetic names, though. it might just be that i'm synnie, but to me, random syllables strung together can be more descriptive than a direct description. cx like jinka's name, here - jink sounds pointy with feathery tips (hence birdy-ness and horns and claws), and alli sound very green. (jinkalli was the first of these, and i designed her before i thought 'hey, i should make this a species!') idk if that makes since, but that's how i see it. cx
puma; my other passtime (design wise) is creating ridiculous villains with rlly stupid powers and then making them entire backstories and planning plots before abandoning them to oblivion
like i made a guy who had knitting powers
he was great
miles [Profile] 2013/2/5 - 23:50:21
