I know you're done, but I got one last suggestion. All those pistons and no pressure escaping? Maybe put a little steam/smoke in a couple places. It makes sense for dragons too.
I'm sorry but I liked it just fine before evildragon's paint over.
EDragon- YOu added blue because the sky was blue- but you didn't add it in the right spot- not to mention the color of the dragon wouldn't reflect it so strongly. I think it's better without the storm- the storm is too distracting, especially with the lightning.
I did a paintover to increase mood overall and beliveability.
I pushed the BG back, and pushed his back limbs back a bit to seperate them from the front. I made the dunes more beliveable, added some saturation and highlights to the bot.
overall it looks pretty good... but for some reason i can't imagine a rust covered dragon in a desert landscape... maybe try a l/s shift. oceanside, or near a humid area, somewhere where there would be water in the air enough to corrode that much.
critique it bitches! : http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=75293
well, he could have been buried deep underground?
really nice looking, but I just thought that the lighting once you changed the background to a stormy sort of thing went to hell and that also messed with the contrast of the whole thing, in my opinion. Otherwise awesome.
hmm i havent checked this thread in a few days and since ive been gone it has turned into a rant? Quit the immaturity and grow up... and you wonder why there are not many "pro's" around here? There are too many little runts like you running around making assumptions that the whole world is against them. Some day, i hope, that you will move on past this stage.
Thanks for the advice evildragonfire but it all went to kaput when i saw your level of maturity.
Please close this thread and thank you.
mbetteker- you have a really nice design for this huge bot. If I can suggest a few things. first of its kind of bizarre having a terraintial thunderstorm in the middle of what seems to be a desert like enviro. however the worlds we create while fantastical or realistic is up to the artsit. what it seems here and what really jumps out the most is that there really isnt any forground.. you have a middle (which is in focus) and the BG which is basically just a blurred out set of mountains. It would be fantastic to put something enviroment based next to the actual bot possibly a huge sand dune.. I would also open upen the canvas size give more room on the top as well as the left side. Put some more mountains behind the mountains peeking out from the back maybe place a dark silhetted structure or rock or deadbody or dead animal or something in that forground. Also, try and Sharpen some of the edges on the bot. right now all the edges have a very soft feel. when I first got my few tips about painting digitally the one rule that I found most helpfull was that when painting digitally its a mixture of hard against soft edges. Dont be scared to go dark in certain areas... In order to make those areas pop you need contrast whether it be by color or B&W value. One last thing.. theres a storm coming so why not add some sand debris floating all around the floor? Keep on going... this has alot of potential.
and to evildragonfire- it doesnt matter how many accts youo create sooner or later you'll get banned for acting like a jerkoff. And if you've been working in the industry as long as you claim then theres no reason for you to even argue.
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd

Evil, my only gripe with you is you don't stick to yer guns. You had an opinion and you posted it and then your retract it and edit the posts..stop being a wuss! Man up and post yer feelings maaaaaaaaaan.
Hmm, I did not really retract my feelings. The post is still there because someone quoted it (I felt THAT was enough), I only apologized for acting like a dickhead on someone else's thread. I thought it was good form to do so. If that is wussy, then so be it. People here know my opinions (they have been made abundantly clear, however, it is wrong to preach on someone else's soapbox). Anymore talk of this should be done in private. We have already taken up enough room in this thread with things that do not really pertain to this peice and the furtherance of it.Originally Posted by robrov21
Besides. Dragons are fickle, synical, and cunning creatures. Look at my name, that should explain alot.

Honest, I don't try to be an asshole, it just happens!
