I tried to bend the horizon a bit more as suggested by Amritha
Now I won't fix anything anymore, but I still enjoy advice for future artwork Update: (05/06/2012)
I changed several things on the water as hecatehell
suggested and like I had planed. I also added more "water white dots" as Pample
suggested, specially falling from the body. I also increased a bit the lines of the phoenix, not much, I couldn't do many things about this character due to problems with my layers x)
Thanks again everyone for your help! Download to full-view!
Oh... my... gosh...
I can't believe I did it and spent more than 9 hours on it today... Add 15 other hours yesterday and the day before...
I'm insane 0_o
It's been a long time since I wanted to draw something like this, but I never had the courage or motivation to try it seriously...
But reading the Rain Wild Chronicles from Robin Hobb, and then watching Grypwolf
's LiveStream last week-end definitly put me in the mood for this...
So here it is!
After 25 hours of hard work lol.
First time ever that I do everything with the tablet on Photoshop, without sketching on paper first.
First sea serpent/ water dragon/ leviathan ever.
First time ever I ink with a 3 px hard round brush.
First dragon-like creature I draw after 4 years.
I don't think I'll do anything else of this kind before a long time... Though it was very fun, it was also very difficult for me x)
Unless someone is willing to pay 250$ for something like this
(only kiding, I'll never take commission for that price 0_o)
Everything, even the stupid useless uninspired non original tittle, (C)
*oh look it's Jörmungandr*
