Bear studies
Feral bear studies and anthro bear sketches.

Full size for easy viewing/sharing on my TUMBLR:…

Bears. :D  The first page were studies from a couple of videos (credited in image). The rest were drawn without reference except for the two polar bears butt to butt on the 2nd page.

I’m going to be a lot of animal animal studies, so keep an eye out.

I will be taking a species and doing study sketches, then sketches from memory (practicing what I just observed) then some loose anthro faces/expressions.

Next studies will be: Owl, Honey badger, Kangaroo, Moose. Check my FA journal to see who suggested what species.

I would like to do some more actual character sketches but for now I am starting owls.
Lighting paintover for kaydreamer.

semi-subtle lighting.contrast edits, lighting can be subtle or intense.
Golden dragons
A mother dragon takes her baby out for it's first real flight and the whole family came along to be part of the occasion.

Digital painting. Medium to moderate detail. I could go so so much further with it but have other things to work on. I may go back to it in the future, but it is done for now.

"Art is never finished, only abandoned." - Leonardo da Vinci

EDIT: Ok I abandoned this too soon. Haha.   I wasn't happy with a few things.

I redrew the tail, left wing, part of the other wing, went over the whole baby dragon, added moss or some sort of hanging plants on the trees, refined the lighting in the scene a bit.

Just notified that I Have 100 Llamas at the same time I am watching the Emperors New Groove. Is this the universe telling me to draw Llamas?
