Firefly by Hameed Firefly by Hameed
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:

:jawdrop: but it would be perfect without all the noise...

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!

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!

biggspidey Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003   Digital Artist
It's a truely awesome piece 8) a lot of things going on, a LOT of time and detail... and I think the coarseness really goes along and contributes to the feel of the whole thing. You're inspiring, man lol
buildingclimber Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003

dragonite Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003   Photographer
A new style huh?!
This is a wonderful first piece of a dragon from you.
I like the noise..makes the sky look much nicer!
keep it up!
ghostt Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003  Hobbyist Photographer

also the noise is good because it mkes it blend with the sky so you could look up and sort-of see it and think you might be going crazy
lordmaci Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003
wowowowowowowow :) thats so coooooool :) greatēģ job
exorist Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
looking pretty good its technically sound and really well detailed but i think i would like it more if the dragon stood out more.

maybe oneday you could do a dragon in space,that would probably cause me to prematurely ejeculate ;)
speculative-one Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003
Wow, great use of tones! :)

dang! that's good! very very realistic. haha keep it up.
halfbent Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003   Photographer
Looks awesome! To be fair to the rest of the commenters tho, it would be considered a Wyvern, Dragons have four legs, Wyverns two. =)
Lokia Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003
Wow. This is really good, nice and dark. With a little bit of light highlighting certain areas.

Very nice...

Sorry... Still got that darned stupid virus. Anit-virus hasn't arrived yet... So.. um... Yeah.. I'm pretty useless at the moment...

riftfusion Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003
Nice looking dragon. The grainy effects does give it that night feel. Nothing wrong here. Great piece.
banachan Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003
I don't mind the noise at all, it makes it looks sort of pointilist. Unfortunately, I must agree about the birds being flat; they should at least be a little darker, methinks, to be in there. I wouldn't remove them completely, though, 'cause they center out the piece nicely (not just one thing in the middle and a casual balance all around.)

I'm afraid I've seen just too many dragons to be impressed by them very much anymore, but I do so love that sky more than words can say!
skargrim Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003   Digital Artist
Wow. I like the noise being there, and the atmosphere of it is cool. :)
wilithien Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003
