Dragon by sazinator Dragon by sazinator
I asked my closest friend what he wanted me to draw him for his birthday and he said a dragon... could he ask for anything harder?! Anyway I was looking for some pics to help and came across this:

[link]

and did my own version in pen. I did ask permission but got no response but I'm putting it up anyway. If they ask me to take it down then I will but until then it can stay... im quite proud of it :D

Took about 3-4 hours over a few days and its A3 size.

Achieved 2nd place in this contest: [link]

i love this work looks amazing i think that the head could have a little more depth as its quite thin but other than that awsome job man i like how the spikes are simple but the simple lines on them give that extra detail to msking them look perfect the shadowing is great and i cant think of any improvments to make on that and maybe add a bit of background atmosphere to give a more dramatic effect . the teeth could have abit of difference between them i hope what i have said can be used to your advantage but the drawing is awsome dude great work

I love the way you shaded win the drawing and all of the detail you put into it. This is the best pen/ink drawing of a dragon I have ever seen.

It started in pencil to get the basic lines down then moved onto pen.
Glad you like it (my friend did too)

Love the body, but the head could use some work, make the top and bototm jaws a bit thicker and move the eye back a bit and don't forget a puple. Besides, that way it would be more your own :D I see this is old, hope this stil helps, lol.
