Death Knocks On The Times Door by Grypwolf Death Knocks On The Times Door by Grypwolf

"He couldn’t see even slightest trace of life in her eyes - only death "

Series of - "yay so dramatic" speed paintings I have made within these past... two weeks in order to get back inspiration for both art and roleplaying. Title, thanks to Riskikoi and thanks for permission to make my own design of Thea - as a dignified dragon, like she truly is. Fearsome and nowhere near cute. Also, Dannsey goes Kakashi. Don't mind that XD

I used rough painting brush in Paint Tool SAI with these, just to practice with it more.

(english is my second language, might have problems to explain some things, sorry xD)

Wow. It's really hard for me to find critique on this, I'm stunnded. (and you draw way better than me anyway)
but I might try anyway, eh? ^^

first I'll say how much I love this.
really much. you have so crazy effects in this which make it just look... wow. I have no words to describe that, I'm sorry :'D

one thing still bothers me. it might be only me, but either the human character is too big in the first frame, or the dragon's head too small. I know you probably wanted to make it look like that - as in- playing with the side of view maybe? I don't know xD

but to me the distance between the characters is too small , like that the dragon just seems much smaller than in the other pictures :')

as I said, that might be only me, I'm not professional when it comes to that but yeah I thought I could at least say what I think ^^

but still, very stunning art. no more words :'D

It became a most amazing image. it is so incredibly great as you drew the dragon. I love his size and he looks so incredibly powerful!
The blue in his mouth is so extremely cool and all these details. My god gry what have you designed again for a fantastic picture!
You've got it so great, as you can see how big the animal is at all. it's so wonderful.
All these effects schaidings and make the image correctly on the move! one feels with. It is so amazing!
The image. Indescribable. Wow.
It's really really perfect. No one could make the image better and that's really not a joke!
I think everyone here admires your art and it is just incredible what has a style for you. I'm speechless. really. I love this picture. Gry, you've outdone yourself again!
It is a so-so great and beautiful picture.
Everyone there is gry love, everyone!
I LOVE IT!

i think you could use sharper brush since your paintings look too blurred. Also you need some work on your shading & lighting, since it looks like the human has different light source than the dragon.

Oh my friend already showed me and now I do understand what you meant with mixed up lightning source.

also sorry for the Finnish answer back there. Your nick here is in Finnish so I assumed you are from Finland. If it's not like that, I am so sorry :'D

its fine c: oon oikeasti kyllä suomalainen mutta saan ajatukset paremmin kirjoitettuna englanniksi/finglishiksi

en tiedä miksi mutta jotenkin näissä töissä kaikki näyttää kovin sumealta, jopa ne kohdat missä olet käyttäynyt terävämpää jälkeä. Tähän voisi auttaa ns. terävimpien, jopa pikselöityneiden, brushien käyttöä, sillä se tuo sitä kaivattua särmää kuviin. Myös texture brushien käyttö luo teräviin kohtiin yksityiskohtia, sillä everything in these paintings is smooth like a babys butt.

Lisäänpä vielä sen että ei tekisi pahitteeksi define the background a bit more, vaikka se ei olekaan kuvien keskipisteenä, sillä nyt näyttää siltä että lohikäärme sekä ihminen pyörivät jossain tyhjiössä.

Hmm. No taustasta olenkin saanut jo kuulla ja olen aivan samaa mieltä. Ylipäätäänsäkkin urbaanisten kaupunki maisemien maalailuun pitäisi kiinnittää enemmän huomiota.

Silti, lähtökohta näille kuville oli "speed painting". 2 tuntia korkeintaan per kuva. eipä siinä kaikkea ehdi.
ja noita texturi brusheja en tykkää käyttää ihan periaatteesta ellei ole aivan totaalisen pakko tilanne, eikä niitä olekkaan juuri Paint Tool SAI:ssa. Ehkä jossain Photoshopissa onkin.

mutta kiitos paljon kommentista.
pistetään korvan taakse vinkkejä.

Siksi ehdotinkin tekstuuria sillä monet käyttävät sitä saadakseen nopeasti "pintaa" töihinsä, mutta jokainen omalla tavallaan c: kiitos vain itsellesi!

Niin no eipä se ole pois suljettu juttu toki. joskus textureja voi käyttää mutta musta ei ittestä ole hyvä jos tukeutuu vaan niihin eikä osaa toimia sitten normaaleilla brusheilla. :3

Oiskos mahdollista että näyttäisit millaista terävyyttä haet? en käytä pehmeitä brusheja lainkaan kun maalailen. Vasta kuvan loppu vaiheilla saatan käyttää gaussian bluria että syvyyttä saisi enemmän joihinkin paikkoihin.

ja tottahan sitä pitää harjoitella. Aina pitää harjoitella, eikä mikään työ ole täydellistä.
Millä tavalla sinun silmään valot tulevat tässä? Voitko yhtään tarkentaa että voin oppia?
Katso itse sitä sokeutuu omalle työlleen niin paljon ettei välttämättä kykene näkemään mitä tarkoitetaan ellei ilmaista asiaa tarkemmin.

Wow. I love how the paintings fall into sequence. I don't know how, but every angle combined with the lighting you used had an impact for the whole piece. If that makes sense. 
I really really like this because it's epic. But also because the human stands in front of the dragon, not running away.

So what is the backstory behind this? As far as I can tell they were companions of sorts then something happened to the dragon that stripped her of her life and made her into a sort of zombie. He is sad because he can see the shell of his friend as a mindless dragon who does not recognize him.
That's very sad! Especially since the image in the description begets a human form of the dragon interacting with the guy in a very friendly and familiar manner.

The blue light coming from the mouth and shining on the face of the person is such a nice touch. It shows how close the dragon is to the person and how intimidating that must be

This is just.... Holy cow. I at least looked at the picture from top to bottom four times now, and I'm still amazed, and even found myself wanting more! It's almost like a cliff hanger to me. And his eyes: they are amazing! course I have a strange fascination with eyes anyway, don't mind me. Great job!!
