Today is Roxy's birthday, everyone wish her well!
She asked for a painting of a black knight fighting a ferocious dragon (she also said she liked the color green, but I ignored that apparently 0_0) so using that and the five hours (plus some more) that she paid for I indulged myself.
I had a blast spending so long on one drawing. It's hugenormus size and heavy detail are something I can't find time to do for myself very much anymore, and I'd never think of doing such a traditionally fantasy artwork like dragon vs knight.
Because it's such a common scene, I wanted to throw in my own flair. I don't think I've ever seen a Cobra!Dragon before, so drawing inspiration from Jafar in Aladdin, I put this huge hood on this menacing creature and I'm pretty satisfied.
Also if you're like me and you hate drawing backgrounds... dont ^^ That's my new motto. Compose a picture where the characters fill the frame from top to bottom and problem is solved. Brilliant ^^
So yep ^^ Happy Birthday Roxy, thanks for spending your birthday money on me! I hope the drawing is what you wanted, I know I'm very proud of it. If you click 'download' the actual dimensions are big enough for you to go to walgreens and print it out. You have my full consent ^^
Really excellent work! I love the detail, and the knight looks appropriately bad ass to deal with such a threat. Definitely top-notch work!
I saw this I was so happy! I love the touches you've added, they're fantastic!
The cobra dragon is pretty damn kick ass. This picture is going on my wall, that's for sure.
Thank you so much!
As a cobra spread its neck to appear bigger... given this bugger has huge wings, the neck wouldn't be needed. But hey... We were having about Darwin in class today, so I just had to get that off my chest.
But its still cool. And the design or rather idea is quite original. And the legendary Black Knight... looking ready for a fight as always. And it appears he's a lefty. Imagine that... heh heh.
Alright, I've had my fun now. Time to get back to work.
