Not every piece of art in the digital media needs to be so polished all the time.  The soft edges can allow for the viewer to fill in details and make a story in their own head.

 

Like is the slash of red a wound or a rogue pattern on a scale or even a flower or leaf caught up when the dragon landed? If it is a wound was it caused by an other dragon or a human challenger? Is that a nest of birds or baby dragons? Is the dragon a male or female?

 

Clarity can ruin the mystery in a work of fantasy like this. The unknown can be a lot of fun in my opinion.

good to know some people like it :) I find leaving my works unpolished very problematic

Why is it problematic?  Oh, wait a minute, the artist mindset. You know it is unfinished and can't rest easy till you have achieved perfection!Wink/Razz

I do not think it is all bad, as you did state this was more or less testing a technique in drawing. This to me makes me think of a dragon of the winter sunset, as to me the title places the time. I do see it as more sketchy yes, but the design is good,and I think can be refined even more, well done. :) :thumbsup:

Podoba mi sie ostrość (DA coś chrzani, trzeba kilka razy poklikać, zeby złapało poprawną jakość)

I nie wyglada dużo gorzej niż preview :D
Kolorystyka super :) Trzeba tylko popracować nad zróżnicowaniem faktury i kształtu, aby smok się nie zlewał z dzewem (chyba ze to było zamierzone ;) ) :)

częściowo tak, bo tam jest cień, no ale to nie powinno rzucać się w oczy :P Ogólnie różne tryby kolorowania tu testowałam, wróciłam do techniki rysowania w czerni i bieli i poprawiania tego później. Jakoś tak lepiej wtedy wszystko pasuje do siebie :)
