Soaring through the Burning Skies by Nachiii Soaring through the Burning Skies by Nachiii
A little present for :iconsamantha-dragon:. She was so kind to draw me several pictures of my dragon char Azrael, so I wanted to draw something in return :) It was supposed to be a speedpaint, but in the end I spent around 8 hours with it (although 2 hour were used for constant re-doing of the sky ^^;).
I used a photo of a bat as a reference for the wings.
I hope you'll like it :aww:

Haha, I'll try. I still don't think I'm really suited for it, but it doesn't mean I'm not going to try to work hard on my art skills so that one day, maybe, I'll get to a higher level :D
Thank you for the encouragement :hug:

The dragon looks a little clear amidst the mist from the mountains and possible glare but... ah, who cares? Great work on this!

Haha, I guess it does, you're already the third one to point that out :aww: I wanted to make the dragon the most important in the picture and shiny, but I probably overdid it a little ^^; :D

It has a real eerie glow that seems perfectly natural for the dragon; I don't think the its own sheen is overdone at all, personally. :D

Thank you :) Since I already overstepped the time for speedpainting, I played with the rocks a bit more :aww:
Well, I'd love a critique :aww:, but I don't want to trouble you too much. If you find a bit of time and don't mind, I'd be happy :aww:

Oh, no, of course. I'm not a premium member anymore, though, so it will not be possible to write proper critiques to my later posts, but don't worry about it. The finals are far more important and I don't want to burden you. Only if you have a little time sometime, you can write me a comment with whatever you think about my pics :) That'll make me happy :)
Good luck with the finals! :)

pěkný :) akorát, mam z toho takovej pocit, jako kdyby ten drak na to pozadí nepatřil... asi je to tím, jak je ta jejich krezba od sebe drobet odlišná. to ale jen jak sem se na to koukla prvně. jak na to tak koukám dýl, tak už to tak vidět neni... možná že to byl ale úmysl...

Nachiii Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Děkuju :) No, drak měl být výraznější než pozadí - chtěla jsem ho udělat jakýmsi centrem obrázku, ale asi jsem to trochu přepískla, no :D Díky za upozornění, příště si na to dám větší pozor :)

Ooo, to je pěkné! Moc se mi líbí ta klidná barevná kombinace, tyhle barvy na mne moc dobře působí. Akorát mám pocit, že sam jako taková do toho moc nezapadá. Vidím sice, že je na ní nádech do oranžové, takže by podle logiky zapadat měla, ale stejně mi tam nezapadá, nemůžu si pomoct.
Obdivuju ty kameny v pravo - myslím ty vzdálené, se stromy. Mají krásnou kamenovitou strukturu.:) Taky mi přijde zajímavé, jak kameny blízko vypadají, jako by byly z úplně jiného materiálu - ty vlevo jako z nějakého hladkého kamene, ty v pravo trochu jako oblázky. (Tak mě napadá, že tyhle typy kamenů - ohlazené - se vyskytují spíš v nížinách než na skalách. Skály jsou vystavené permanentnímu náporu, fouká tam vítr, prší, sněží, kameny tam mnohem víc podléhají takové té korozi typu praskliny, úlomky, hrubá struktura kvůli vypadaným zrnům... Takhle hladké naopak bývají v místech, kde se přes ně přelévá voda nebo nějaké minerály. I když předpokládám, že ty byly podle té fotky a taky bůh ví, co je to za kámen, pokud je to nějaký čedič nebo jiná hodně pevná hornina, pak by možná mohly vydržet takhle celistvé. Ale stejně mi přijdou hrany na kamenech nejbližších v pravo hrozně hladké a lesklé.)
Nicméně to vůbec nemění nic na tom, že je to krásné a šup s tím do oblíbených.:)

Děkuju moc za komentář a za kritiku! S tou barevnou kombinací (hlavně kvůli obloze) jsem si dlouho nevěděla rady a nakonec v ní není moc logiky, ale což, o to mi tentokrát ani tolik nešlo :)) Sam je ale úplně jiná záměrně, chtěla jsem, aby z obrázku vyčnívala, proto jsem nakonec udělala nebe rudé - aby z něj dračice spíš vyčnívala a nesplývala. Trochu totiž ujíždím na kontrastech, i když je pravda, že by asi neškodilo, aby do obrázku zapadala trochu víc. Chtěla jsem z ní ale udělat hlavní motiv, no :D
Ty kameny jsou taková kapitolka sama pro sebe. Z nějakých fotek jsem se inspirovala spíš jen obecným tvarem těch kuželovuitých skal vzadu a jak na ně navazují ty prostřední skály. Tím to ale haslo a zbytek jsem si vymyslela a nakonec to celé i upravila, takže moc podobnosti jakékoli fotce tambohužel není. Kameny kreslit neumím - spíš jen tak čmárám, dokud mi z toho nevyleze nějaká struktura - a ta je v 99% hladká :D S tím, že by skály měly být ostřejší máš pravdu, ale ještě jsem nevymyslela jak na ně a neměla jsem ani k dispozici internet abych si našla nějakou inspiraci, takže jsem se o to nakonec ani moc nestarala. A sice se v geologii nevyznám, ale myslím si, že to, jak vítr eroduje skály, záleží hodně na jejich materiálu, takže moje výmluva bude, že jsou to prostě nějaké fantasy skály, co se obrušují do hladka, a nebo byly ve vodě před nedávnou orogenezí :XD:
Každá skála mi taky vyšla trochu jinak, spíš jsem experimentovala a trochu se učila je kreslit :)
Moc díky :hug:

Thank you very much :hug: I'm not very confident in speedpainting and not very used to it, either. I also can't draw rocks very well, so they took me more time than I was planning. The same goes for the sky, which I changed several times. I'll try to improve it :) But it's still not a super detailed painting, rather a rough one... In the end, I don't mind it took longer, because I was really enjoying the process and I guess that's what counts :D
Thank you for the comment :aww:
