Dragon Light by jjpeabody Dragon Light by jjpeabody
This started out as a speedpaint then it evolved from there. It was really cool seeing how I could take a speedpainting to a finished product.

I never expected a DD! Thank you!

Oh my goodness gracious! This is absolutely incredible!
Sensational, I say! such an elegant look at the world's best fantasty creature! The lighting is perfect, the shading is incredible, and the details are just breath-taking!

As a lover of dragons, I have to say that this instantly stole my heart! It's like one of those dreams where you see a large dragon amongst the beautiful terrain of the new world.

This really isn't like most dragon arts that I'VE seen. It really points out the tranquility that a dragon's presence can have. Such a beautiful piece of art, I absolutely love it!

i give this the 5 to 5. a perfect peice of art. i just love the dragon and all the details. the vision is fantastic, you can see all the details and it looks so realistic that it looks as if you can run up and touch it. its an original idea it doesnt look mlike ive seen this before. the technique is beyond belief. as i said it looks like you can touch it. really professional on your part. and the impact is great to. it just stands out so beautifully. youve out done yourself this time. If your not a professional artist then you probaly will soon become one. really good peice of art.

jjpeabody Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I start with a scribble, pull out the shapes that I see, apply rules for composition, atmosphere, anatomy (which is actually kind of bad in this image), lighting, many hours of rendering and voilą.

This has such a beautifully surreal atmosphere, and the realistic scenery and sense of depth is stunning! This scene is absolutely mind blowing and it really inspires me to draw and write myself. :) Magnificent job, sir!

This is absolutely stunning, I love the light coming through the dragon's wings, it gives a sense of realism to it. The forest and the background is amazingly done! Great job!

The dragon looks a little obese and it's head is kind of big, but the detail is absolutely breathtaking! I adore the landscape and especially the little marshy place in the very front of the drawing. c:

I wish I could draw like that! What program(s) did you use?

No problem. ^^ And that's amazing! I couldn't draw in photoshop even if I wanted to. I've tried and trust me, we don't mix. X.X So I'm impressed. :)
