None of my art can be used without my permission.


^^ happeh... I'm quite pleased with this piece. There are still some mistakes that are a bit annoying, but nothing to major. The head would have been better tilted the other way and a few things with the feet, but no big deal. The main practice with this one, was for anatomy and shading. The flow of the body worked out pretty well,but if anyone has any tips for the rest i'm all ears.

I used 1.0mm and 1.6mm ball point pens and a few touches of white gel pen to color it.

Ok let give this a try :)

:bulletblue:What I like about it:bulletblue:
I soon as I seen this picture this first thing that court my attention was it's face simpley because it's full of detail form it's tusk and whiskers to it's horns. To me it seems like wart hog but yet at the same time it has an eastern feel to it. Next body it's a little hard to tell if it's body is all muscle or if it's all scales but of closer inspetion it's both! Very nicely done the muscle and scales complement each other nicely especially because of the colours you picked too.

:bulletred:What I don't like/what could be inproved:bulletred:
Right now the only real thing that I was to keen on was it's feet mainly the front paws. Because to me it seems to be a running pose I believe that it's toes should be more stretched out instead of them being bunched up. It's back paws a fine but the back right paws looks a little bit smaller than the left. And lastly it's shadow seems a little bit to light at different parts too.

In conclution this is a very nice of art for you with minor errors.

Note: I don't give 5 stars for the fact I believe there is alway room for improvement. :heart:

It is awesome! The use of the colors red and violet, the contrast, is great! And it is very detailed!
Only one little point to critizise:a background woud be nice, white is so... empty!

Awesome.
I like how you made the front claws raptor claws, rather than the back ones.
Great shading and colors!

It must have taken you quite long to draw something this precisely O.o

It's excellent, I love the colors you chose the most. The red goes great with this light shade of purple, and at the top the purple almost appears to be pink. It's so interesting. And I love that one big tooth, it looks great!
You are an excellent artist!

how long did it take to draw it? looks impressive. the colors and patterns you used remind me of the way muscles are drawn in anatomy books

Oh yes, i made the scale pattern complement the musculature.It gives it such a nice flow,and varying the size and shape of the scales makes the creature more interesting too. Hmmm, length of time..... Well, a creature with smooth skin, the same size, took about 15-20 hrs. to color. But there was more detail in this guy, so,probably 25-30 hrs??.....not sure, i didn't really keep track of how long it took. I've only timed myself a few times before on other drawings.

WOW!! amazing art! combining different animals is SO PERFECT! but the antenna thingy on its nose is kinda weird.. but so AWESOME! I've been trying to make something like that but it's not working so well... and you've just inspired me for trying to continue those kinds of works! XD
