Radia the Dragoness - Painted by cyrad Radia the Dragoness - Painted by cyrad
I wanted to draw a picture, but since all my attempts sucked, I decided to try a new painted style of coloring. I used this as a base, keeping none of them. None of the actual base picture was used in this one.

Also the scale-work is excellent here. :)
Nice work! :D

For this picture, only Photoshop Elements 2.0 was used. The original picture was drawn with Manga Studio.

Hmmm...yeah, this is totally epic and worth whatever amount of time you put into it.^^; Honestly, it'd be great if this could be taken as your main method of coloring, but for practical development purposes this would be the stuff you'd use to show off the full design of each character. Excellent and overall amazing to behold, I'd love to see more of your characters done with this ultra-realistic painting style.

I'm worried that not all characters will look so great with this realistic approach. Afterall, my characters have a certain cartoony look to them.

Cartoony appearances can help and hinder in various respects. I'm pretty certain if you 'dumbed down' the amount of detail in this particular bit of artwork to slightly more cartoony, you'd get a good balance of realism with the intricate detail of realism.

It's something I've been trying to achieve myself, but just can't figure out since I'm spending so much less time doing art. ^^;

REALLY well-done lighting and toning there, Rad! Especially on the Scales and Horns!

Glad you like it. I was worried the scales wouldn't look so good, but i guess it worked out ^_^
