Dragon and Rider-Finished- by Shining-Galaxy Dragon and Rider-Finished- by Shining-Galaxy
Finally after working a little over 8 hours and getting extremely agitated I FINALLY got this finished!

I would like any kind of feedback if you don't mind...

And yes I know it's not the best...but it's not the worst...not in paint anyway....

This will probably be my Dragon Booster OC Selina Johnson and her Dragon Patronus

Which is Latin for Protector.

Done using:

:bulletpurple: MS Paint
:bulletred: Wacom Bamboo Tablet

Time used:
A little over 8 hours...

Like the pose and idea. Maybe in future, try going all line-less or using lines of like colors, like on her Tunic. Also shading can define edges as well as lines do.

Thank you! Oh! Good idea! I'll do that next time :) I'm not comfortable with the shading yet because where I just received the tablet for my birthday (plus it just looks horrible when I do it--for now anyway) and that just made it seem like I was making excuses ^^; Where would you have put the shade in?--if you don't mind me asking.

Two kinds of shading, one simply occurs around the edges of the subject with dark and the shade denotes that the subject is round or rounded (3D) This can be added to by shading with light colors at the center of the person, dragon etc.

The other is shading created by light in the context of the image. Usually done by painting with black or white on separate layers that have been given lighter transparencies like 40 percent or so. Best thing having them on thier own layers, you can play with transparency and darkness, getting exactly what you want.

Go slowly. explore. its fun when you get used to it.
