Li Jeng Commission by Ghostwalker2061 Li Jeng Commission by Ghostwalker2061
Well, this is a commission I did for :iconnetarliargus: . His gold dragon. I really like how the lighting turned out. So did he. And he's hard to please.

Well, that's two down.

And yes, I am still doing commissions if anyone wants one.

Li Jeng is a girl.

The person who asked me to do this image is a boy.

The lighting is wonderful, the background looks realistic, and the dragon is well-drawn. The commissioner definitely got his money's worth.

I like how you've drawn Netar's dragon character. She really is a pretty golden moth like his evil Red Dragon character calls her.

Can you give me a little bit more detailing than....vague missing description thing?

derkomai3523 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012
sorry, I was kinda hurry!

I took the time to think about it... and the missing thing (to my mind) is contrast.

in fact, there is two things disturbing me:

1-This gradient from yellow two blue wich I see the line you made with the gradient tool (even though you didn't use it)
2-The fact that lightning seems abnormal in every way.
What does it point out?

the 1 tell us... that the 2nd sums up all my point of view: the blue zone indicate a lack of light, and yet the lightning source seems to be the sun. there is nothing between the sun and the subject wich can hide only this part of the tail...

I was also thinking that the parts of the dragon wich facing at us (I'm speaking obout orientations of surfaces) should be dark, and the parts facing the sun (so near from not visible) should be highlighted. this fact, mostly concerning parts wich ar in the sun disc. a picture worth more than 1000000000 bad english sentences: look at the cloud behind the dragon, it is totally "black".

in current state of the picture, light seems to come from the left side of the pic...

after, if you wanna add a frontal or lateral light, in addition to the sun, think about to increase common light zones, wich could be nearly white.


Now you can do what you want of these hints, if you have only understood the half! P:

and see you soon! ;)

She's a rather nice-looking dragon isn't she? A bit headstrong and naive as well, that's what you get for being cooped up in a Tibetan monastery for the most part of your life.

Thanks again for the image, it's really nice and the techniques you've explained to me are certainly gonna help.

Very Impressive Gold Dragon. I really like how you draw D&D Dragons, this one is particularly radiant looking with the sun light off his scales. I like the clouds in the background too. His eyes are a very nice shade of green as well.

Her scales, man. This is a female.

But thanx. Li Jeng is a female's name.

Dinalfos5 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh I'm so sorry, You never specify its gender in the description, so since you say the commissioner is male I got confused and thought you said the Dragon was too.
Well you're Welcome then.
Reply
:iconghostwalker2061:
Ghostwalker2061 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Actually, like I said, the gender specification is actually in the name.

Commissioner is male, the character is female. From what I know, she's in love with a French reporter.

:icondinalfos5:
Dinalfos5 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well that obviously wasn't enough to clue me in, or I could have gotten it. Besides, once I misinterpreted it as male, again, probably from the only pronoun in the description being used being male, albeit referring to the commissioner and not the dragon, it didn't matter if the name sounded female, I would have just thought it as a male with feminine sounding name, it's not like it doesn't happen.
Again, my mistake, I'm sorry I made it, and thanks for clearing it up.
