Heart of Fire by lostsanityreturned Heart of Fire by lostsanityreturned
Paint tool sai 1.10 trail
Photoshop CS3

Wacom Graphire 4 small (the rubber grip is gone so my fingers hurt like hel atm)

I started the picture in paint tool sai as the first time I used the program, quite nice and I was able to knock up the first animal/dragon I have ever drawn which was kinda cool.
Once the lineart was done I imported it into photoshop and after 2 days of colouring (about 4-6hours worth of dedicated time) it was finished. Was going to put a sword and sheild in the bottom right hand corner but just didn't have time.

No thirdparty brushes or effects were used in this picture.

Please give many comments.
I don't expect to win but any chance to get a new graphics tablet I will take, I have a widescreen monitor and the smallest of the old square tablets... do the math.

Anyway I had alot of fun doing this XD. Hear from you soon.

The dragon is so cute, it's what sold it for me (I have only just seen this).
The colours are nice but I would suggest (if you plan on editing it) making the dragon a touch darker. .
That's all I can think of to say but I am so tired that I will be asleep as soon as the cookies are done. . .
Btw, I know who you are, do you know who I am? :P

Hmm... My laptop had died last night before I had the oppertunity to comment this piece.

I realized the date and actual time put into the piece. I believe that if you had more time to work and dedicate on it your outcome would have been much better, however; as the piece stands its self, I believe your vision was achieved.

So I commend you on your ability to protray your creative imagination.

Also doesn' help the res of the piece was so low and I was stuck working on it at insane times at night being distracted by friends lol.
I can do some decent stuff if I put some effort into it... but unfortunately my life is so busy I always get sidetracked. This last picture I am finishing tonight I thought I had left myself enough time and people stole all my free time. :(
