Centrifuge dragon by Meken Centrifuge dragon by Meken
OMG IT'S NOT A TOOREHAN.

Practice run in Sai! DAAAAAYUM I love this nifty little software, so much easier to ink! Just a lazy version I'll probably play more with later ^^

This is Centrifuge an he is pretty <3

Thanks for looking! :blowkiss:
Done in Sai and CS4

I don't typically like anthro dragons, but this is really good. I love how the only thing you did to make it anthropomorphic is make it bipedal. You didn't give it hair or human appendages. I really don't like that kind of stuff!

Joking of course xD I love your art, and this little guy ROCKS. I especially like his tail *________*
It's great to see you doing other things though you already know I love your toorehans (damn that word is epic win. I'll be using it forever. TOOREHANS) :XD::heart:

Hahaha! I actually had this account loaded with fantasy artwork for a personal universe I'm crafting with one of my best friends, but since I ran into a bit of an inspirational block in that department, I'm taking a break from it until I feel I can do her writing justice and make the characters as awesome as we've pictured since we were kids. :) I'm gonna post it on a new account when I do, though! Keep this less messy ^^

Thank you SO much for the comments! :hug:

You definitely should! Try the trial out! It is SUCH a great tool that only costs 60 bucks and is really honestly vastly superior to photoshop in terms of sketching, inking and paint blending in my opinion. I know the swanky masters are amazing with photoshop and all, but Sai is so genius and uses soooo little resource from your computer it never ever lags! It has the same layout and basic functions as photoshop does too, so it's very familiar territory :D

Curious-er and curious-er!

I don't actually do much sketching/inking on the computer (I love my traditional materials WAY too much ^_^; ) but I always like to pick up some new skills.

*le gasp* no turians from you... :fear:

I like it's colour combination alot :)
hmmm, for silhouette readability you could have placed it's right leg a bit differently, and I half expect to see parts of the right hand show up somewhere or else the lower arm and hand would seem too short,
aaand maybe leave a bit more space between the left toe and the lower border...

why do I end up being nitpicking on your drawings, when I actually just like them, sowwy :ashamed:

Meken Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
No no no, no sowwy! I love getting some nice critique!
I do agree, limbs are all kinds of wonky, I got a bit too carried away with the inking when I had fun in Sai and didn't correct the sketch well enough! Thanks for the pointers, I really appreciate it! :hug:
