Golden dragon of the Universe by Gewalgon Golden dragon of the Universe by Gewalgon
IMPORTANT UPDATE! (May, 1th 2014)
___________________

The author JK Ensley bought this dragon for a book cover.
I know this dragon was a request from a deviantArt member, but the dragon I drew wasn't a personal character of SailorScoutFan or something like that, she just wanted to see a golden dragon from my mind, that was all.
Now JK Ensley is allowed to use the dragon in any way she wants with crediting me.
_____________________

This drawing was requested by :iconsailorsunphoenix:
She asked me to draw her a female golden dragon of suniverse with the moon and sun.
Please don't ask me how long it took me to draw this piece... I didn't look at the time :D
Hope you like it!


[Drawn with "GIMP" and a graphic tablet]

The detail on this drawing is very well done. The space looks realistic, and I also really like the detail of the dragon: the folds in the wing, the scales, the detail in the face, and the hair/fur coming off of the dragon. The scales are perfect in their size and shade; they aren't overdone or underdone at all. The folds in the wings show a great understanding of their stretching and texture, and the way you drew the flowing hair/fur seems to match perfectly with the emptiness of space and the movement of the dragon.

In terms of vision, I think the idea of the entire universe (as opposed to just a small part) could have been presented more clearly, but at the same time, the way you've included just one mysterious part of it keeps it from being overdone or too filled with distractions.

Many people have drawn space dragons or rulers of the universe, but I haven't seen a golden one before, and not so close to home as dwelling around the moon and sun. It would be amazing to imagine encountering this dragon one day in space travel around Earth, and the way you've drawn it certainly makes it believable.
What do you think?

Yes, I saw it, thank you very much! :heart:
Well, I was never that book reader, especially I would never read english books, because my english skills aren't good enough for that (yet).
But I saw some books on amazon. It seems she's a good fantasy author because she has a lot positive responses there. :-)

I can only see things that are present in the drawing. Few people can make such beautiful and deep pieces, and even fewer do it on purpose. In short, you are an awesome artist :lol:

Meep sieht das toll aus! Die Schuppen müssen ja ewig gebraucht haben @~@
Riley: Da sieht man mal, wie sehr sich manche Leute mit ihren Bildern Mühe geben. Im gegensatz zu gewissen Leuten die unter dem Decknamen Bleky-Fox auf einer Internetseite reisen und eigentlich besseres zu tun, besser gesagt zu zeichnen hätten, ne?

Entschuldige bitte meine vorlauten OC's >.> Lassen sich einfach nicht bändigen die Viecher.

Vielen Dank für dein liebes Kompliment!
Ja, hat schon ziemlich lange gedauert, aber mit guter Musik im Hintergrund gehts einigermaßen :D
Oh, also das was ich ja bei dir gesehen habe hatte mir sehr gefallen, dein OC braucht sich nicht zu beschweren :D

Bitte sehr ^^ Ich zeichne bei meinen Drachen kaum noch die Schuppen (Ausnahme ist die Queen aber das hat auch ihren Tribut gefordert...) weil es so viel zu viel Arbeit ist.. Deshalb hat Riley ja auch Fell! :dummy:

Heißt das du hörst beim Zeichnen auch Musik? (Ich tue es jedenfalls und dann immer tausendmal das selbe Lied.. )

Naja ich glaube er meint eher das hier: [link]
Skizzen sind wohl nicht so berauschend aber was solls XP Die Zeit drängt und ich bin faul. ^^;
(Zwar ist Riley ein Drache und Safari eine Katze, Raré und Réro Wölfe, Garcia ein Schakal und so weiter aber aus irgendeinem Grund nehmen die alle menschliche Gestalt an :O)
Garcia: Ich tarne mich einfach. Wer würde hinter einem scheinbar normalen Mitbürger schon seinen Tod erkennen?
Riley: Jaja, ich wurde verflucht, blablabla. Immer dieser ganze Aufwand.
Elocar: Und ich BIN ein Mensch - oder war einer - und sehe nicht mal mehr annähernd danach aus. Toll. -.-

Ja, ich höre eigentlich immer beim Zeichnen Musik, teilweise auch wie du, ein und das Selbe hintereinander wenns gerade zum Werk und zur Stimmung genau passt^^

Das ist reine Übungs-Gedulssache. Ich war anfangs auch nicht immer sehr geduldig, und wenn ich so zurückdenke, zeichne ich noch nicht mal so lange die Schuppen der Drachen mit. Aber umso öfter man sich ranmacht, umso geübter wird man, umso schneller gehts von der Hand, und wie gesagt mit ein wenig Musik geht das dann ^^

Ja.. das einzige Problem ist dass ich nicht* geduldig bin. Irgendwie beißt sich das etwas mit meinem Perfektionismus.. Naja solange ich nicht vergesse zu essen XD

*Ausnahmen, wie eine Skizze an der ich 5 1/2 Stunden saß, bestätigen die Regel

Some of the limb placement and sizing seems off, but you did a very good job with this overall.
