Krypton Snow by Ealaain Krypton Snow by Ealaain
random gift thingy for =NobilisKrypton
he randomly gave me some points and he's been sketching my chars quite a bit. so yeah. I feel like I owe him something XD
he kept getting really spazzy this past winter every time snow came to Texas lol...so have a Krypton walking in snow :dummy:

Thank you SO much for the help guys! I feel like there's something missing still, but I seem to have the feeling a lot when I finish a drawing that I've been working on for a long time. :shrug: stiiiiill don't know about them mountains XD
This was a total experiment with digital painting. don't think it's too bad for not knowing what the heck I'm doing LOL. I was also playing with composition and "dynamic" angles and stuff.

let me know if you want the full dimension drawing without a watermark :)

Krypton belongs to =NobilisKrypton
drawing by me

Can I just say how much I absolutely love this drawing? :)
Well I really like how you've advanced and taken advice, I recall during another deviation I mentioned that you shouldn't put folds in the wing when they're open, and although these wings are drawn in towards the body, there is still that gap that's open. But you didn't put folds in at all, which shows you're advancing and taking in everything that goes through. :)
I quite enjoy the shading and how clear it is and while darker, it does not take away from the many features of the dragon. The expression is priceless, one of utter confusion and a little almost of a disturbed look xD I quite enjoy how you drew the snow, it's beautiful. The one tip I may offer, is that snow sparkles in the light, in the areas where the snow is the lightest, I would try to find a way to add a bit of that sparkle and shine to it. I know not how, but that would be a great addition to the pictures quality and technique.
I enjoy the scenery very much and I hope in the future you will do more of it since you're extremely talented with it.
What really makes this picture stand out is the overwhelming detail in the perspective. When I saw it in my inbox, my first thought was this was a perfect angle for which to show the dragon. It's at a slight angle and not looking straight down, but almost like the angle of a bird falling from a tree to take flight, just as he's gliding by. I absolutely adore it. :)
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
5 out of 5 deviants thought this was fair.

This turned into something really epic! The clumped snow, footsteps and the mountains on the horizon really added a lot, and all the details on the drawing (especially on Kryppie) really take it to another level.
