This is a friend on deviantART's contest prize from my last contest back in the summer of 2007. I took forever finishing it, sorry.

This is Mekolai's self dragon character. I really enjoyed working on this with all of her unique markings. The pose was a challenge as well. There are so flaws, but I've overall pleased with this. I'm just wishing I would have worked with a bigger resolution so I could have paid more attention to the details.
Hope you like.

I've been wanting to draw him for quite some time now and finally got a chance to do so. Anyway, this is a Amphithere/Tetsu cross, another one of my 'fantasy' fantasy dragons. I'm rather pleased with the background... that's about it. However, all those that I've been showing WIP to seemed to really like it so I guess it's okay.

For those that like little details added to the picture, the background is the northern hemisphere's constellations for the month of February. The brightest star is Vega which is located just above the moon in this picture. Polaris is right on the edge on the underside of the amphithere's neck. See if you can pick out the constellations.

This is my half of an art trade between YunikoYokai-Keitorin from deviantART. She asked for a chinese dragon with red, blue, and lilac colors so this is what I came up with. I hope you like.

A gift for a friend over on deviantART, Nakita-Kitagawa. This is her self persona in feral form. Some portions of this may look a little pixelated, so I apologize for this. The file was beginning to corrupt as I was just finishing it up, so I had to save what I could and fix the rest at a later time. I'm overall pleased with this.

This was a kiriban for one of my club members over on deviantART for catching the club's 1,000th pageview.

I'm overall very pleased with the way this turned out. The only thing that I see could use more work are the horns. They still seem so flat, even with the texturing I've added to them. I'll eventually change this in the future. Got too many other drawings to finish. ;)

Just a random sketch that turned into a decent drawing. He'll be a new character I'll be adding to my story.

Gabriel is an albino Lyjen, so her looks very much like Shiroo, only red eyes instead of blue. More details later.

Anyway, for those that don't know this is Byzy's chatacter, Byzy for deviantArt. Be sure to go by and check out her artwork sometime. She'a a really great artist.

I'm rather happy the way this turned out, but there are lots of things I'd like to have changed. For one thing, I feel I over-rushed this. I could have done a better job with the fur shading and stuff. The wings are okay, could have done better with thm too, but I wanted this to get done. Sorry for the poor quality.

I don't know why I'm even uploading this other that I really like the background and the colouring job. There is just so much wrong with the pose and anatomy of this. For starters, the mane and horns are far too large, but I really can't critique my own work. That's what others are for, I guess. Anyway, enjoy what you can of it.

Otherwise known as the American Amphithere. The American Amphithere , while very similar in appearences, is unlike its cousin the Mexican Amphithere. American Amphis have reptilian, or "moth"-like, wings while its cousin has feathers. American Amphis prey on mostly deer and elk, but occasionally consume bison. They are a solitary species and prefer to avoid human civilization if possible. They fly only at night in order to cover themselves in a shroud of darkness. Rare sightings have been recorded, but most have been brushed off as either a giant luna moth or other large species of Lepidoptera.

Of cousre, I had to spruce "my" version up a bit. I don't think real Amphis have poisonous barbs on it's head, neck, and tail. But, since this is just fantasy, I can always imagine things differently. Overall, I'm very please in with the way this turned out. The scanner killed the picture, so I apologize for the not-so-great quality of the dragon. The actual drawing looks very nice, though. I may have to sell prints of it on E-Bay, but who knows. Enjoy. ;)

Really my first digital 'pencil' drawing without any blending. The only places where I blurred is on the skin on the neck to give it a bit of a more natural look. Everything else is natural. Backround done in PaintShop Pro 7. Drawing done in OpenCanvas 3.
