Very Helpful,gave me ideas on how I should draw my own dragon :D

So, I should be looking at the anatomy of animals ?

hey, you know there is a whole category for tutorials, right? You could change this go go in there. More people will find it and be helped by it.
Great work!

this should go into tutorials-this is awesome!
When you submit a deviation, in the left bottom corner is a button that says 'gallery info' and it gives a definition of the gallery:

Gallery Info: Collage
Traditional works created by gluing a variety of materials onto a flat surface including paper, cloth, photographs, etc.


Gallery Info: Traditional Art
Work that is primarily created with traditional media and physical materials.

So your sketch dump is really drawing and should be recategorized as such. Although a grouping of images may seem like a collage, it is not.

If you change the category, which is really easy to do, your work will benefit by getting new views. It will not be overlooked by the viewers that browse by category only.
It's up to you in the end, but it is to your advantage place things in the best category to showcase them.

I hope that was helpful!

Hello. I want to use your drawning of this dragon to do gifs for Nightwood game can I do that, please?

alecan Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
No I'm sorry you can't. I don't allow my art to be used for free on games or websites. I hope you understand. If you want a dragon for your game, then I suggest you look into the possibility of commissioning me. Read info about that here: [link]

Very nice. It's interesting to see a guide on drawing dragons, since I just kind of imitated a picture I found to draw mine. ^^ I think the muscle part is especially helpful.
