Rawr by LadyAway Rawr by LadyAway
I wanted to try a different style, both for the drawing technique and the dragon body itself. What do you think?

I like 4 legged dragons better 
and for drawing technique, it is hard to say because....well....the shading seems kinda incomplete? It looks like it needs to be polished up xD

if it was polished, it would become a normal painting :P

(PS. how do you shade in ambient occlusion? I was bored yesterday so i started reading a bunch of tutorials, and a lot of them used ambient occlusion and they had nice effects, so i want to try it, but i keep failing xD sta.sh/04gnmwfkblq what bit am i doing wrong :iconcryforeverplz:)

I wish I knew it myself :P I think you should imagine your character as totally flooded with light from every direction, so the shadows are very weak and rare. And you can't use a lineart for it, dark lines will kill it

but if it is flooded from every direction, how do I make it  so that there is a definite light source? :?
i feel like an idiot
and ummmmm how do i paint it without a lineart?
or do you mean like just use a sketch and use that as a like guide rather than proper lines?

If you shade your sketch properly, the lines should become useless at one point :)

Imagine an overcast day - almost no shadows, and everything is softly illuminated. That's what you need. Then you can add a directional light, but there's no need for any more shadows after that.

I have never liked having the arms as part of the wings, it freaks me out, but that could be a good thing, it is a good deal more intimidating.  You have such a gift with dragons, I wish I could siphon off a bit!  I think the cartooninst like Treyva was talking about is more coming from a lack of texture more than anything and the hard black lines,  but seeing your other work, you know what you are doing!

What's funny about four-limbed dragons is they're actually the most realistic ones, since there are no six-limbed vertebrates :)
