A break from the norm, my first Dragon piece, i hope you all like it.

Some people dont like the noise i added, but its there to capture the essence of night time, and i think its fine. :shrug:

Thats really awesome for your first dragon. And the noise makes it almost like a painting.

This is amazing! It looks so real, so magical - like a stain.
Ninjagecko Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2005
I like this one alot. You do a great job of capturing the 'essence of night' even without the grain pattern. ^_^ :cheer:

I don't much like the noise either but it does give it an almost.....*tries to think of the word* medieval? look to it. Not sure if that is the right word or not but's not a bad thing.

*awestruck* Loveloveloveloveloveetc. This is so beautiful. The noise really does add to the effect because, as you may have noticed, that things generally look "fuzzy" like that when looking through the dark. Awesome job. Keep up the good work! Oh, and do more dragons... ;b

This is just amazing. Beautiful and blue, and powerful and...I love dragons. Some nice little touches mixed in...the delicate veins on the wings, the flock of birds on the bottom left...(perhaps the dragon is out hunting?) and the lightning in the background. Very powerful looking. :heart:

Well I must say I can't believe myself. I'm not one who tends to take the time and comment of deviations but I'm starting to want to do it more, and well for as long as this has been my desktop I'm surprised I didn't say anything. Anyways to shut up I'll say this peice of work you have here is amazing. I love all the blue colors and the dragons, it fits absolutely perfect with this window blinds theme I found. I must say I just made this a favorite and note I think all your space works are just as cool!
weaksid Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2004
Dude, this is awesome! I thik it's perfect! Great job!

GnKit Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2004
That is feakin awesome!!!
FoofyWuff Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2004
I think it's wonderful. It's supposed to be night so the noise adds the perfect level of obscurity. I collect a lot of animal and mythological creature art, both realistic and metaphorical. I think this leans to the metaphorical and folks are taking you too literally. I think they need ta lighten up. ^.^ I really like this piece because it tries to capture the true nature of night as opposed to what night truly looks like (our eyes aren't capable of really comprehending it, only advanced cameras really have a good idea of what night is and they produce images not unlike that).

I think you did great. +Fav, definitely. Keep being creative.
russell44 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2004
Ohh mother this is great! I am mostly honored you to come and comment my pic.
Groxx Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2004
Nah, I like the noise, it gives it a different effect, and a good one at that.

I agree tho, MAKE MORE PLEASE! very nice style :D

thats freakin awesome ...........and i love it :) .......

love the colors .......and the drawing of the dragon ......, great stuff !
boscoJ Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2003
:jawdrop: but it would be perfect without all the noise...
-michell-n Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2003
wow that's so beautiful! i think the grainy-ness adds a nice effect, makes it look older. The dragon looks mighty good there and i love the way you painted the sky with the stars and clouds. The details are very nice too like the cracks in the dragons wings..
..only thing that kinda looks off is the birds, they look a little unfinished.. but the rest of the picture is very good and the attention goes to the dragon anyway!
susakau Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2003
WOW! I love this. This is awsome. I love the colors and the dragon is 100% " tight" Although I think this should have been a wallpaper, enenthough it was not I made it so It was a wallpaper. I think there are to many stars, but they look good. I think what It could have used is a shooting star. Anyways this is awsome work and I would love to see more things such as this, just because of this peice I'm going to put you on me DevWatch!
the-Grim-Sage Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2003
