dragon wip by nebezial dragon wip by nebezial
another in the line of many ravine dragons.. poundingout the comic massively and imma sure need these for the later issues hehe

now a bit about the dragons in ravine

dragons when born are mostl leathery
before first forge the cant breathe fire and no scales of tellas

forging is a maturation process not unlike puberty and is triggered by dragons age or in some cases intense emotional or survival situations

first forge empowers them with firebreath and enough power to use wings to walk and front legs as hands

from there on they are referred as wingwalkers

next forges grant them more and more powerful scales as they thasw and form the so called tellas, a highly valued material in the economy of ravine which often gives finantial power to any kingdom which has many dragons

tellas is graded by forging amount and anything above 7th forge is considered of divine class and is as such priceless and virtually indestructible. dragons shed their scales once every 18 to 20 yeaars and they are a prized loot for many adventurers as they fetch a great price in weaponry and armormaking circles

Is it drawn freehand , or your have done skeleton.muscles and then skin and render for them?
Even if this freehand zbrush art its amazing. I know described by mine method is very long and difficult.dut after your master anatomy and make perfect render of skin (i saw your job -you really good in that) your art will be rewarded. It will become a realism masterprice.

Yeah i saw that masterprices too. Vostly in movies and hardcore videogames, but its very difficult(for me now imposible) when you selftaght and dont know the basics of anatomy. But i can say your freehand drawings in zbrus like ice giant , uruk-hai and ravine dragons very good. But for my opinion to draw humans is more difficult. Oh by the way i really liked your fantasy drawings in photoshop/ Could you do some tutorials about drawing chainmail and armours someday ?

A young dragon I assume cuz they have no teeth. It does look pretty young actually taking a second look at it

teeth are coming later but yeah this one is a single forged dragon , so in their term a young wingwalker

ok cool. I imagined it with teath like the baby godzillas from the remake movie. they kinda look like they don't have teath yet they can tear off a man's limbs.

It was crazy...like punching a hole in the moon...for valentines day.
