The Fly which wants to be a Dragon



  • @Mike-Mirfin
    4 days including a weekend left to finish it.
    in case you have not started, dont let that discourage you. even when you need more time you will have a idea and finished piece in your "hands" when you are done and thats what this all is about.

    i think you cant win when you are not subscribed to the courses anyway so dont focus on that part since its really the least important one.
    here is the thread with all the entrys so far : https://forum.svslearn.com/topic/9888/august-contest-dragonfly
    get inspried and do your own version.



  • First Wip Look into the Final Image. Fly with Base Flats (Will be the Dragons Fly Concept)

    i actually wanted to do it all traditional and color it with watercolor but i am going mixed media now and do the lineart traditional, carry that over to photshop and color it then there. additional watercolor version might still be something i consider but lets finish the lineart/composition first 🙂
    dragons, clouds, maybe a moon next.



  • First Dragons added. Placing is still not Final and i consider to Print it later out and Reink it since Linearts Varry now due to different Pens and Scaling.

    I try to finish it today but even when it takes longer i will finish this piece.

    As i said i will continue to work on it and i will Update the Thread with the newest Versions.



  • Final Version. I dont think i will manage to make it better by just tweaking around so thats it from my side.
    When you have some input to improve it feel free to post it and i might try to incorporate it when it benefits the piece.

  • @Molambo, I liked the other way better. I think the dark reads more naturally... at least for me. Maybe there's a middle ground that would be perfect. But for me, I'm leaning toward the image with the darker dragon in the foreground.



  • @Eric-Droke
    in term of keep him out of the focus and lead the eye to the char in the middle, yes. the dark one works better but i got pointed out that it doesnt make sense that he is covered by such a huge shadow while being midair and i had to agree.

    maybe something inbetween might work out too or even better but overall i think the big issue is the weak composition. itself. overall i want to do more work with the little one here in the thread but i am on the fence of redoing this scene/idea or go with a new comp based on the ones shown above.
