Cognoscente. by Shinerai Cognoscente. by Shinerai

Description

Taking today as a break from everything (work and a commission) I decided to do another one of these busts. They're quick and I really enjoy doing them. This time, I drew one of my characters. His name is Yoi and is referred to by many as Noodle, for being so long and windy, hehe. Maybe one day I'll try to paint a fullbody of him (or update his ref one day lol) but here is a headshot for now. I'm messing with a lot of minor features in his face that I think are good change in his design.

Anyway, I like it and I hope you do too. I actually took screenshots this time, so I'll be posting a progression of this shortly.

This Dragon should be in the game coming out 2014: Destiny is this an evil Dragon or a good dragon?

I do call that a more interesting style oriental dragon. it is much more complex but still bears the similar features of that type of creature. The dace is a it more pushed in as to others of the same species seen, I do like the use of dynamic hair and lighting it is well fitting to the creature designs and nice work. :)

I understand ;D His body is about 100 feet long, he looks like a big noodle. I just said that because you shouldn't pre-classify dragons. There is no asia in my world and no 'eastern' or 'western' dragon. gotta expand your horizons.

I only know what I know, and classify for my own benefit even if you do not feel the same. As it is I do not know the worlds you have built yourself, nor am I part of them. Yes dragons are are dragons despite physical appearances, sorry but is my limited thinking.

I really love his horn shape and facial structure, especially around his eye and muzzle! I have no idea how you have the patience for all of those scales, but they look wonderful c:

Thank you so much beb cx I used a brush for the scales! :D I made one especially for it

VolVokun Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're very welcome! And I honestly wouldn't have guessed! Every scale brush I've seen has that really repetitive "this is obviously a brush and not painted" look to it, but you've made and used yours really well c:

:iconshinerai:
Shinerai Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A lot of scale brushes are simply painted on though, I just use mine as a foundation. Just like on this one [link] I used the brush, but then painted over all the scales to make sure they interlocked correctly, added shadows, and little highlights :D

:iconvolvokun:
VolVokun Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, I get you! So it still involves a lot of work then, depending on how many scales you have to work with? c:
I don't even use Photoshop for painting but all this talk of scales is tempting me so much, oh man :'D
Reply
:iconshinerai:
Shinerai Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, the scales on Di actually did end up taking a lot of work, due to their unique shape. but Yoi's scales were easy, I just added a single line for the shadows on each scale and it was super fast. Might also be just because I had experience doing it so I made the brush better too c:
Reply
:iconvolvokun:
VolVokun Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I did notice that Di's scales had a lot of interlocking, so that all would have been done by hand? Although as much work as it takes, it's definitely worth it! I think Yoi's scales threw me away from "she used a brush" because of all the little touches, like the highlights ;o;

i also really like the art style youve been doing lately.

...i wish i could do it!
but i cant color or shade...or draw different kinds of poses OTL

im still trying to scrape some money together for my icon.
dads being a jerk and wont trade me for my gift card like he said he would.

...do you have a classic xbox as well as your 360?
i was gonna send you a present, and it works a lot better on a classic box than the 360...
