dragoon by drachenmagier dragoon by drachenmagier
Was bored. d: A bit. So nothing big this time, just what I was able to work on between the commissions I got right now. So went and tried some techniques out on this one while watching Torchwood.

Markers and acrylics. And Tuli who kept insisting that this drawing is a very good sleeping place. So, add cathair and a few pawprints here and there too.

Acrylics and Markers (mostly) on A4-Mixed-Media paper

The composition of the artwork is very balanced. The character is well positioned and the artist made good use of colors to fill up the spaces around it. What would have been interesting is to have the character in a more dynamic pose (which would have livened up the drawing).

For the colors, the shades are very well done if it's for a statue. In my opinion some colors could have been brighter (but i'm a color maniac).

I find that the techniques used in this drawing are outstanding! The black lines are precise and clean and the colors are very well blended together to create nice highlights, shadows and textures. I appreciate that the highlights and the shadows are also in the right areas and I feel that it makes the drawing more realistic.

Overall this piece of art is very well done and I hope to see more from the artist!

Hmmmm..... This one has some nice features and a wonderful concept!

Out of my curiousity, May I ask where did you get the idea of creating this character?

And what inspired you to create this and the rest of your artwork?

He looks like a guardian of sorts...
Slender, but strong and talented enough to dualwield specially made spears.
A majestic scale armour and a long and slender tail that seems hidden, as if to be used as a suprise attack for the unwary. His feet seem to indicate that one is capable of fast frontal movement, so its probably a charging creature. He's well defended from all sides, but speed will be his weakness.
Looking at his angle of its head, I would deduce it has caught the smell of something. I suppose it has a keen smell, and uses it more, since his visor isn't really helping much. Even though it looks awesome.
I do like how the placement of the wings look, but it doesn't seem practical. A ring hovering behind the back of the being not only block spinning movement, for quick spins and attacking the sides and back of itself, but it also would deem a source of constant power to stay that way, becoming a constant drain on the creature. Though that probably won't be a problem since I think the being is supposedly related to dragons and thus would have a large so called "mana pool" and regeneration.
Makes me wonder what it is guarding... and how the others of the species look.
I can easily imagine a whole civilisation of these...
Nice work :)

I believe he'd be good at guarding something, but somehow I imagined this one more as a part of the first charge (like you said: charging creature). On the same time - like you - I can't seem to imagine him move fast. Happy to see that this came across with the drawing!

I had the first idea for this drawing after finishing the defender angel. The creation was solemly for defence and a friend mentioned: When that guy is defence, I want to see an attack unit. Well, that's when the first idea for the dragoon was born, I guess.

I really like how you managed the light and the colors mixing together like that! Great work, indeed. Also the color reflection on the floor looks nice. I think the dark outlines of the character fits very good and the white outer line makes it look even better.
