fleeting_memory (Jul 13, 2005)
Alright I am afraid to add anymore to it. All I really wanted to fix way the skin to tail transition. Thank you to Maiko for the space! YAY you are awesome. If you guys feel that this should be moved then I can't stop youl, but I am proud of it.

for all the simplicity of the rain and lightning, it still works. and yeah, lets see hideyourface do better, or copy it for that matter.

hey, It's just my point of view.Im giving my thoughts on the picture.

I think there's a difference between helping and just saying that you dislike the picture. If you don't like something, you could point it out? Then say what you think needs to be done to fix it. That way, it'll be beneficial.
I like the rain, but now the tail seems to blend into the background a bit. You could try lightening up one or the other to separate the two. I might also add some glow around the lightning too. I like seeing how hard you're trying here for sure :). Keep on going.
Knockoff (Jul 22, 2005)
Pretty cool idea, unfortuantly this isn't advnced quality. The clouds are a bit blurry and could have more detail in them, Maybe a bit more variation in them too, it look like one big line of clouds. The lightning is a bit harsh on the eyes, no offence. It looks like you used the linetool. The rain is too thick and you can see it too much. Blocks the picture a bit. Good wings, but they look a little thick at the edges. I'm not sure about the hand behind the back, and after that the proportions go whacky. (though I think that was on purpose) The colors in the black sky are neat, but maybe you could add more detail and add variaiton. The circle of light really needs work on. Make it brighter and less blurry. (it'll bring your eyes to the character) Good attempt. More practice would be better if you plan on taking your art into this board.

"Red Halla's royal scouts roved forth
Explored the Pain's edge east and north,
Sought scarlet dragons' Smoking Hills
Beyond bare Saltlands' bitter rills.
Four scouts fared forth, fast shoulder-friends,
Climed clouded cliffs where world ends,
And, ragged ranks reduced to three,
Were wared of wyvern trechery
By Melintelinas, lite queen
Of dragons languid, long, and lean.
One scout sped south, strove to return,
Lest Halla, herd, and homeland burn.
His fellows fallen, stranded here,
Have heard no word four hundred year.
Their daughters' sons bide, yearning yet
For news of Halla's offspring's get
That wryms lie vanquished, Hallows freed
By valiant victors' distant deed.
Come outlander with tidings and
His name shall be the Firebrand.
More swart than midnight swept of stars,
The moon athwart his brow bescars.
One heel whicked white by wyvern stings,
His flame the final firefall brings.
We dragons' denmates must remain
Till Firebrand fetch us home again..."

A line of unicorns appeared around the bend...
-from The Son of Summer Stars (Firebringer Trilogy)

I think the problem with the grey one is that the horn is pointed too far down and that the angle it should be at is kinda pointing right at us, the viewers.The other horns seem to look just fine to me.I think my favorite would be the brown one in the middle cause he looks like he's about to take someone out and you did a nice job capturing that XDD.Nice work :).
laurael (Jun 24, 2004)
Pretty good, so far FM...but also on the grey one, maybe not have the top of the horn so high up? I like the red one the's got attitude. :)
davincipoppalag (Jun 24, 2004)
Nice colors, and a good idea. I agree with Laurael about where the grey one's horn originates, I think if you shorten it, the angle you made will look right. I would like to see some shadows on the road to connect then to it, ( I know, I know you're not done..) I like this.
Bumble_Beez (Jul 22, 2004)
I love that Trilogy! ^_^ It was kind of sad though, at some parts.. well, actually it wasn't all that sad compared to some other books I've read... x_x Never mind.
Well, anyway, this picture is really good! ^_^

She's thinking of sailors, of course!
davincipoppalag (Mar 30, 2004)
The colors are very nice.. I think something to give the suggestion that is water would help.. at first I thought it was sky ..and what Gigandas said about some unlit sparkly specks in the dark area would be good.. nice picture
