Mutant dragonlich by metaakumu Mutant dragonlich by metaakumu
My brother in law asked me to draw this I was just gonna sketch out a simple pencil, but noooo, five weeks of work later I have this pen and inked monstrosity, sorry if there are scanning errors I had to chop it up and paste it together, was not easy this is 14"x17" my scanner is just a normal one, with a blurry side X.x oh well, enjoy!
*disclaimer* yes, it does look like a mashup from a bad syfy movie, but thats what it was supposed to be, A gold dragon horribly mutated after centuries of exposure to rain the randomly changes you. insane and in horrible pain and nigh invurnrable it wanders the world.

Wow. That is one majestic creature. I like the section on the left more than the one on the right. It looks way more professional, probably because the shading makes it look more realistic and not that fairytaleish. Especially the head (jaws) and the hand are pretty awesome. On the other hand, there are simply too many colours for my taste and they seem to be placed utterly chaotically. The background kinda ruins the atmosphere too, the piece could do without it. But all in all, it's a very good attempt. I admire your sense for complexity above all. Job well done. :salute:

I wanted to leave it just black and white, but it just wouldnt leave me alone kept wanting more and more attention! needy thing. The creature is supposed to be chaotic it was an elder gold dragon that was horribly mutated over centuries of being exposed to a mutagenic rain, the colors were the best I could do with my prismacolors, as my digital pad doesnt work for what I want it to do and has been stolen by the wife. I wanted the back scales to be like the only true dragon part left of him the rest is mutilated scared and freakish and no two parts go together. hence the weird colors.

That's not a bad attempt at all with some lovely detail and clean lines, but I would suggest that you work on the colouration. As it is is it looks too much like separate ideas stuck into one creature, as opposed to being part of a whole monster.
