All dragons like something... Jewels and gold.

Kaal on the other hand....

Has a thing for books. ( oh and hoarding gold. who doesn't?)
Only problem is he can't read them. So he gets Alexia to do it for him.
Not all Dragons are bad!

:iconsuperw00tplz:

Art, Alexia and Kaal belong to me.
Nord/Frost Dragon/Skyrim (C) Bethesda

Time: 9-10 hours
Done in PaintTool SAI with a Bamboo pen and touch (small) wacom drawing tablet.

edit: attempted to make Alexia/Kaal stand out a bit more. it looks a lot sharper on SAI than on the interent D8 Sorry about that.
Progress shots:

Hey. I hope you don't mind that I used this picture for a school project of mine. I did not use the file, but I had it displayed on my computer screen, as I took a photo from behind. HERE can you see the picture I took. I am also planning to upload that photo. I will leave a link to this picture.

Sorry about that, but I only have one day to complete the project. So, unless I could IM you, would waiting for a response, take too long. I will not upload the photo then. I'll notify my techer about this. However, sience we sill have to show the photoes, and most of the set-up are still in place, will I see if I can do something about it. However, do you mind if I keep the photo for personal use? Or do you want me to delete it when done? I kinda like it. :)

Don't fret about it mate, I'm not iffy about it ( just maybe next time asking would be nice instead of just dropping it out of the blue ^^;) more or less caught off guard with it :XD:  - you don't need to change anything! it's your project so yeah.
And sure you do what you want with the photos, i honestly don't mind. You're not claiming the artwork to be yours so i have no problem with it.

Aww man this is cute. I usually don't care about people's OCs and the stories behind them, but is actually cute and very interesting! The shading in the picture is really nice too, and the dragon looks like an actual dragon (I really don't understand how people manage to draw them... Dragons, my only weakness!)! Good job!

Are you going to post a backstory or something about Kaal? I think that would make for a good read :)
This is awesome! Is this what they call lineless? not exactly sure what that is XD

I've been working on his bio on and off :XD: Linless means there is no lineart at all, your completely relying upon shading to show the edge/shape of something :)

This is looking good. Dragons eye is lovely. You have captured a nice moment here.

I would try some rim lighting on Alexia to pull her out from the dragon a bit, just catch her hair, maybe nose and cheek a wee bit and the top corner of the book and the page edges there too. Use the pink light from the horizon as the tone. Could even put some onto the dragon it'self to pull it forward of the rock behind.

Thank you :D i was little unsure on how to make Alexia stand out more, and i see what you mean so i'll try that in the morning :D

Nice work, that is working. Ties the palette in the foreground to the BG colours while still pulling the different elements out.

I would be tempted to leave the light off the rock behind the dragon, leave them flat and dark, might also look at the shape, at the moment it is very complimentary to Kaal's shape and especially towards the nose. And watch the grass forward/behind Kaal's nose, again the shape is very similar, as is the light levels, you could darken the grass and have it curve away from the horn, this will help the dragon cut clear of the BG a bit more. I hope that makes sense.

These comments are not critism but hopefully help you see the strengths in this piece and make it even stronger. It is a good piece.
