Doctor Jekyll by DrQUESTiiONABLE Doctor Jekyll by DrQUESTiiONABLE
This is my half of a trade with *Zenhi!
This is her lovely sona, Zehni. I really enjoyed doing this piece minus the scales which made me want to punch someone and curl up in a ball and die somewhere.

I chose this title because usually this dragon is fun-loving and kind spirited..but she looks mean as hell in this...

Also, I'm sorry it turned out so dark!! We'll just pretend she's in the shadows xP

Also, I downloaded and used Paint Tool SAI to color this, and I love the outcome. I am definitely satisfied with this shading style, and I'll more than likely be using this for nearly all my art in the future.

Yay, SAI!

Oooo very nicely done! I like the anatomical structure of your dragon - it looks like it could be a real creature, which is always nice to see in art that depicts a mythical/fantastical creature. Scales are hard to draw - I hate doing them myself - but you did a great job on them - neither too much hilights or shadows, nor too little, and the over all composition is pretty neat. It looks like an emblem that could be placed on a shield or flag! :D

:love: Wow, thank you so much for all the wonderful feedback!! It's much appreciated!!
I am really picky about things being able to live/survive if they did exist, such as providing them with a chest and abdominal cavity, and things of the sort. :XD:

SAI is just awesome, so much better than Photoshop IMO. It's pretty straightforward and easy to use. Also, it works waaaay better with pressure sensitivity than PS.

The scales look very good! You've managed to give the character a scaly texture without overdoing it. I love the shading too <3

Uggggh your anatomy is amazing here. I loooove the way you drew her wings, with the 'fingers' kinda half-curling over...Oh, and by the way, those scales? PERFECTION. Especially for someone so supposedly unfamiliar with them. I love that they're slightly pointy in places, but round in others. It looks really natural.

Personally, I think SAI is amazing for line art, as the brush is much more sharp and clear than in Photoshop.

I like how all the options for the brushes are right there, and you don't have to drop down a menu. It's also much easier to change the brush preferences on SAI as well.

:la: Thanks again love <333

I was worried you wouldn't like how dark it is, so I'm quite relieved!! And I love drawing wings, they are probably my favorite!!
She was really fun to color though, I loveee her markings/design! :3

I really like the shading and detail on this drawing. The scales turned out nicely, even if you didn't like doing them XD and the dragon's body is very well defined by the dark shadows in some parts. I agree with you that there could have been more contrast between the shaded and highlighted areas of the dragon, since her form could be defined even better than it is now. But it's still a well done and well-detailed piece of art.

DrQUESTiiONABLE Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Student General Artist
xD I'm glad the scales didn't turn out too shabby.
I agree, I could have made the shading a bit detailed by mixing two shading styles, I used a "backward shading" style on this, and without using another shading style with it, there's no way to make any parts lighter than the base colors I have down.

Long story short, I was being lazy xDD;
I'm really glad you like it though! Thank you so much for the lovely comment <333

So glad you liked it and it's working for you. o3o
Tbh, I like the outcome of this SAI done pic vs PS. cx
Then again, I am baised about ps to begin with... lol
So, whatever works for you. c:

But onto the picture, wonderful job!
The fur on the tail<33333
You did a great job shading this, well done. c':

As for your commish, I would have done it yesterday, as I said I'd have time, but the damn power went out. ;n; And as far as I know, it still is. Herp. And my laptop dies after an hour of use soooo....
Yep. ;n;

Haha, well thanks. I'll definitely be using it for coloring from now on. It works really well with my "backward shading" that I do.

Thanks so much! I've always enjoyed doing long hair. Short "fur" not so much though haha. I guess that's because I origianlly started drawing horses and their tail is quite fun to do.

Oh, don't worry about it shug. Things come up or happen, I definitely know that! No rush <3333
In fact, if you haven't started it yet, can I actually get you to sketch Xxan and Quest together? I'll pay double and then some, if you're up to it :3

Oooh, but snow!! You're so lucky! :snowing:
It was warm enough that I was wearing a tanktop and shorts outside while I was buzzing Xxan's hair xP
