Cave of Wonders by Nachiii Cave of Wonders by Nachiii
My part of this year's Christmas exchange of :icondraci-info: for :iconmikedragonis:. He wanted :iconrathena:'s dragon character wearing a cave helmet, so here he goes.
This picture was finished on 7th December already but we weren't allowed to make it public until after Christmas and that's why I haven't uploaded anything in a long time :)

Makes me think of a unicorn with dragon wings I wonder what its looking for in that cave! :)  I love the lumi moths, light and shadow detail.  Your so incredibly gifted a real inspiration.  I have just signed up and am a complete newbie to digital painting.

Haha, yeah, somebody told me a long time ago that my dragons look a bit like horses :D
You're very kind :) I hope you'll enjoy digital painting at least as much as I do - though it might seems a bit difficult at first...

LOL :) It's really cool and creative!   I think I'll be struggling here for awhile with my digital art think the only thing I can get right is painting simple things like a apple haha.  Did you create all your work in Krita or did you use Corel Painter?

Hey, but painting simple things and such isn't bad at all! It's just the right way to start. First nail down the basics and continue with more complicated stuff :aww:
I did all my digital stuff in Photoshop (well, except for the first few old pictures that are done in Gimp) :)

great work butiful lighting and character desine.
though i think it would be more aesthetically pleasing without the cave helmet personally (you dont usually have much choice with commissions though)

Thank you very much :hug: I really suppose it's about preference, although you might be right. I think it's a nice and original idea and it was a lot of fun to draw. That's all I need :P

You always pay great attention to detail. Plus, the fact it's a dragon (I can't hide my love for those guys) wearing a headlamp gives it just the kind of strange touch I'm a fan of. Overall awesome art!

Thank you very much! I usually do, but I wish I would also be able to paint in a more painterly, speedpaintingly (oh my gosh, what a word! :D) way. I'll have to practise that :)
Haha, I'm glad you like it in that way! :dance: I was told to draw this dragon with this helmet and I also liked the idea, so I really enjoyed it :aww:
