Your Welcome!! And dragons don't need accessories!! I don't like to put accessories on my dragons. It is really weird that they were bugging you about that. Actually it is very mean. Your dragon would look cool even if it didn't have an accessory. I think that they should not be so mean. They should apologies. It isn't nice to see one really good dragon and then think that all of them need to look like that. It makes me mad!!
aaahw, its ok I think it was a matter of opinion, they all really like the dressed up bling bling dragons X) and I just simply dont like that so much, but I will try to find like a way in the middle :3
Yeah it is opinion based. But they don't have to pressure you into doing it if you don't like to dress up your dragon. That is mean. Also finding a middle that makes everyone happy is awesome!! It is great that you do that!!
Yeah, I've had only western dragon characters for years, I've trimmed them from five down to two favorites. I've been curious about having them drawn as different variations, eastern, hydra, amphitere, etc to see what they'd look like. Gonna do it someday, just keep forgetting.
I do have a few western, but whenever I randomly sketch, its always eastern XD I really have to think about western, but eastern dragons just flow out of my head u know. XD anyway my commissions/request/art trades are all closed right now, but when I open them I'm willing to help you transform your dragons into eastern, if you'd like
Cool, I wouldn't mind that at all, it'd be neat to see what they'd look like. No rush though, I'll watch your journals etc, when your commissions or time opens I'll drop you a line, I'd be happy to make it worth your while when the time comes ^,=,^
when you celshade, it get pretty easy, when your going for a realistic fur look its REALLY hard. and when it comes to scales, I just make some random shadings to fool people into thing I actually made scales XD
usually I place a grey tinted layer on top of my colors with a cliping mask, set the grey layer into multiply and erease all the things I do not want shaded. thats like my basic celshading, if I make it more complicated, I choose another color and use the ereaser with opacity to get different levels of shading. and place more effect layers layers to get cool effects :3
