It has been a very long time since I dedicated any amount of time to my art. And I am deciding to fix that. hopefully by keeping this blog, I can get on my way to boosting my art drive.

Before & After

As usual I’ve included the main settings I altered to get where I got, but the first thing I did was clean up some sensor dirt with the Spot Removal (Q) tool. Apparently my sensor is filthy.

I also cropped to 16:9 just because I thought it looked more dynamic. The Clarity is set to 100% and that rarely looks good but I think it works on this one.

And here is another weekly Quick Art Tip Tutorial. This time for proportions. If you’re really a beginner in this, it will be only with daily practice that you’ll see results in the future.

We are no art gurus, but we are happy to share with you our techniques, hoping it will help you in your arts!

If you could reblog and like our page we would really appreciate a lot! We would be very grateful. :)

dyndynDYY art for a change! I really thought I could had drawn a bunch of art of my own dragons and dump it all in the same post but no luck, I finished only two :,D so I decided to post these separately.
But yeah, I finally drew some Flight Rising art for myself as well! This is one of my dearest wildclaws, Saltar. He’s ridiculously ripped considering his pitiful wingspan so he doesn’t really fly, but he’s an incredibly fast runner. `u´
This is seriously some of the best I can offer coloring wise… :„,D I work the best with mixed media! Black base was done with black ink (hence the funny spots in the tail but I liked them so I didn’t try to cover them up), then smoothed with pastels, wings were mostly done with watercolors (god shimmer’s gradient is pain in the ass to execute traditionally), belly is shaded with markers and accent spots are made with black marker and white acrylic paint.

Ancient Dogs: http://www.shawlein.com/2011/descent-of-the-dog/

Shown at the bottom are the dingo and basenji, representing nature’s dog blueprint - most dogs, left to natural selection, begin to resemble these pariah dogs.

i get the feeling a few of those became lemurs and mustelids later on…

    These are all canids - they have already separated from those groups and formed the dog’s clade - except for the first illustration. The superficial resemblance is an example of convergent evolution.

    The first beast is a creodont, cousin to the carnivorans.
