Dragon by dreamwave22 Dragon by dreamwave22
The dragon itself (lineart) turned out way too standard looking for me.
This is done on a bad day... the day a friend of mine looked over my shoulder telling me how everything should be and look like too be on the hood of his car.
The only things I could unleash my creativity on were...well... sadly only the CG part of it. :/

This part I absolutely love though.
That piece of cloud on the left side along his wing somehow still fills me with joy when I look at it.
It's the first time I spend time concentrating on clouds and colortweaking, and somehow all the days of effort spend to achieve that realistic cloud-look can be found in that pilar of pink and blue... as if I achieved a glimpse of perfectionism in there...
Offcourse it's just a damn cloud, but it gives my dream hope that one day I, myself, will maybe create a piece of fantasyart that's perfect in my own eyes...

So here is to all the dreamers out there!
Enjoy

I had to comment on this, but mostly because of the beautiful description text :)

I mostly do ponies at this time, but I would also like to get more into fantasy and concept art and such, and I know how it feels to get a smaller detail perfect.

The cloud physics are very nice indeed! Such things are really tricky to pull off realistically, but I don't need to tell you that ;)

This is really fantastic work.  The storm behind the dragon really compliments the lave/magma boiling at his feet.  Great work :)
