Skieweaver Final Work In Progress by Steel-Raven Skieweaver Final Work In Progress by Steel-Raven
Now THIS is what I've been working on all this time. Finally got some proper tools (Bamboo Tablet and PS) but haven't had much time to practice with my day job getting crazy on me right when I started on the final work. I used color pencil earlier before I got the tablet thinking it would make the process easier but only prove to provide me with a whole new set of challenges. I will need to use the blur tool later to smooth out some rough spots left from the sketch paper and pencil but right now my biggest problem is the background such as the woods and the mountain.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I like this dragon :) It reminds me of the red dragon on the Welsh flag, known in Welsh as "Y Ddraig Goch"

Anyway, if you want a critique, I must say that the red dragon's wings are missing the thin "fingers" that support the membrane. Like the fingers in a bat wing that act as support. I often see those fingers in dragon wings and it looks odd without them.

Well, the dragon design came from the client who ask to base it off the D&D Red Dragon.

My problem isn't with the design at this point but with coloring the background, the woods are driving my nuts.
