For the last oh well long while I've been penned up learning how to draw/paint both digitally and traditionally. Recently I began recording my drawing sessions and integrating speed painting videos as an additional medium of sorts.
I found this little forum and all it's awesome artists, and thought damn I need to be a part of this scene. Just saying an introductory hello, and sharing one of the images/videos from my digital portfolio.
BTW... is there a way to get youtube vids to show up if this link doesn't change to one?
Thanks in advance.

Interesting idea. The first thing that hit me was that you have almost no variation in your colors. The green of the cave only shifts towards black (it doesn't get warmer or cooler, more muted or less muted- it's the same hue throughout) and the blue of the dragon as well. Other than getting slightly more muted, it only really is changing in value but not in hue. It makes the color of your composition very uninteresting. It's also more difficult to convey emotion with your colors when you restrict you palette like that.
I'm curious if there were any reason you were doing that?
Welcome to CA!
Define your lightsources, and add strong values. Study composition, perspective, anatomy and composition!
Perspective is probably the easiet to get under your belt, Perspective Made Easy by Ernest Norling is probably the best book to get your hands on~.
The paperback is cheap too, around 9-10 dollars I got mine for.
Never shade with greys, it lessens the impact on the image and makes it flat.
Study atmosperhic perspective too !
