What about Bakel's mentality, culture, habitat, attitude towards other races?

Ahhh your art always amazes me! One thing that always stands out is the way you texture wings. That's something I always have a hard time with, yet you make it look so perfect! And those scales, as always, look excellent.

Also, I absolutely love the frightened expression. So cute and very well done! ^^ :+fav:

I always wonder if your art could get more amazing, and then I see the answer:

Scales. SCALES.

I'm guessing the brown/tan coloration shows up when there's nothing really going on emotionally?

OMG I know others have said it already but those scales are WOW. I luuuuv the wings, too. He's a purdy dragon.

The color-changing thing cracks me up, that tongue was a perfect touch for aroused! :rofl:

I think I just spent like ten minutes staring at those scales. 8| Amazing. I hope you didn't have to hand-draw each of them. xD

I have to say you are my idol for wings. You draw them very realistically, especially with the folds. It's always fun to see every little detail you put into them as well.


And I love every single reference you do for people. Everything about your dragon anatomy is astounding. I always come back to marvel at it and to get ideas as well.

For your details, are you using a certain brush, or just going all freehand?

It depends on the details, but overall yes, I do everything by hand and it takes forever. D:

Then I shall stick to what I have been doing.

Now to get patience.

How long does one of these take you on average? Like just the full colored body.

you're always welcome ;A; <3

well it says he changes colors according to his mood, and it shows a light red color above "aroused", which most people take as excitement for you know what |:

anyway i just thought it'd be pretty embarrassing to turn red in public on accident if you saw a hot chick :E

i'm a loser, sorry ;A;

I think he meant when Bakel turns red when he is aroused; it's a bright and bold color that easily gives him away. It may lead to awkward social interactions. ;P
