chinese dragon by xBlackfangx chinese dragon by xBlackfangx
so ok, totally new style..
I really loved my simple cel shading style and such. but every artist comes at a point where they wanna be unique, and I guess I have reached my point now.
at one point my dragons reminded me to much of neondragon and mythika, and that not a bad thing ofc because they are one of the best at what they do.
but I want to be the best in my own unique style!!!
I want to make people think: wauw, I have never seen a dragon like this!

so everyone, plz tell me what you think of this new 'style'
because I want to be one of the best one day!
I wanna prove everyone wrong when they said to me: you cant do this, dragon are getting you no where.
plz everyone help me become better! plz write a qriticue for me so I can better myself

thanks everyone!!! :hug:

I have looked at all your dragons, they are really beautiful. They have a design that makes them feel... I don't really know how to explain it... they make me look at them and think "That is a dragon" When I see them I see what a real dragon should look like. They capture the spirit of a dragon. I'm sorry, I haven't been very clear :D

I really love this pose! Wonderfully done c:
Since you asked for critique, I think the shading could be done according to one light source. Because your current shading looks like the light is coming from everywhere, also highlights aren't supposed to 'outline' your dragon. Other than that, keep up the great work!

The shading is pretty good. I can see how the scales reflect the light and they are blue... obviously my favorite color. I also like how you did the dragon's mane, which looks kinda fluffy. Like a lion's mane, which would be about right for a chinese dragon. I'm not sure about ears, though, but dragons can already be considered an own Taxonomic Class, if you ask me. So ears might not be to akward for them at all. And it actually looks kinda cute. And finally the armor-like thing on the back.. I'm not sure if those are scales or armor, actually. The golden and white colors definitly fit the holy nature of this dragon-species, in any case.

This style definitly works very well, although your old was also very nice to look at.

Agree! But actually what I don't like it's the head, I preffer your old cute face style. The new shading style is awesome.
