I wish I could draw as well as the artists here, I'd make that my sole project. XD


So I decided it would be a good idea to work on that as a little bit of practice. :3
And since I went ahead and uploaded a wip to my DA, I figured I'd share it here too ^.^

Here's the Moonlight Spectral Wolf

And here's a Gryphon example that I'll be putting into my shop soon. :3

I'll add more as they come along. But otherwise, Critique would be VERY appreciated!!!

The outline's very nice, no bumpy or clumped-up spots. It looks very natural. I like it. :)

If you could do a transparent background, it would add a little extra something.

Nice work so far.

They probably don't have the lines transparent because of a few reasons. One being it's just a quick example and another being that they probably don't want people to take their lines and colour them.;)
Also the lines show up so much better on a white BG so I don't see the point of the BG being an issue.xD


Dragon art auctionhere!(:

On a mini-Hiatus due to work and other life stuffs. If you ordered art from me, I will still be able to work on it! Just not as quickly as normal.

To your first question- Yes. I'm just unsure if I want to color it grayscale first or go ahead and color it normally then mess with hues. >.< Tough decisions

And secondly- lol, yes. I can make the background transparent easily enough, but I like to add small "watermarks" along with my big paint-over wip so others can't steal my work. Also because it will be transparent when color is there to help the lines show up. ;] On DA- transparent bg's with lines can sometimes be a pain in the neck, not so much here on MS.

I think it looks pretty good, I can't draw at all even though my mother is an AMAZING artist, I just didn't get her talent xD
