Pink Rose Dragon by curlyhair Pink Rose Dragon by curlyhair
I call it done :) mostly because I'm afraid to ruin the atmosphere and because I'm a little tired of this little dragon.

So this is Pink Rose Dragon. These are endangered species, thus rarely seen, but I was lucky to get a shot ^_-

Done for cg-fight, with the "Dragon" theme. There are such a great artists participating, that I'm not really believe I can win, but I hope it will get a nice place and attention ^^

Done in SAI and Photoshop. I've used some photos for references and textures, but they are all my resources - so go take your own pictures :)
Took me about 3 days on and off

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! Mostly because it's killing a butterfly and I am scared of butterflies ^^;

Very striking and beautiful! I love how you designed the dragon's wings and frill - it really does look like a flower! And the atmosphere of the painting, thrilling and dramatic! Wonderful job!

asahsjbniajs did Nyah-m mention how much she loves everything you do?
LOL I kinda idolize yoou ; A ;' I suck at paintings, but I really want to learn how to do it
soooo
how did you start painting? I mean, you struggled with art softwares, searched information and tutorials, all this stuff? Cause, I mean, I'm always trying, but I only frustrate myself :'D

Wow..it is really touching.
I've started painting with a mouse - it was a real pain, and I checked different tutorials that I found at google. I was frustrated too, at the begining. Even more than this - when I post my first painting, that took me about a month and I was so proud, I've received a very harsh critique from somebody. It was awful for the first impression, but then I thought that one would not write a page of critique just to make me feel frustrated, so I've started asking this guy for advice and help, and he's become my guru at the begining. He has some ego problems, but if you learn to overcome his attitude,you actually learn a lot XD
The problem with tutorials is that many artists now make a tutorial, but not of them are necessarily right or good for you. But you can try and see what works best for you. You should also think about your style - if you want to draw manga it is not the same as if you wanted to paint oil landscapes. I'll be glad to help any time. And another thing - it is very important to use references and to learn from real life - it makes you see things you usually don't

Oh, I like that. I once drew some flower dragons, it must be years ago, now. Mine weren't as small, though. I really like how he's pinning down the butterfly. He just looks so cool. :heart:

Everyhting looks great, but it seems like his right arm looks longer than the left.
