Thadras by Saimain Thadras by Saimain
An overdue trade with =NadezhdaVasile of her Character Thadras, a tempermental fire dragon who also has a human-like form. This took me the longest time to finish, heh. I hated the first sketch attempt, and let it sit for a month or three, then went back and changed his face and finally decided to finish it. I was going for a mid-transformation look, but I fail at scales. I also couldn't figure out if his hair was blondish or dark red, and I probably over-shaded it, but...I hope you like anyway, Serena! Sorry for the long wait! ^__^;;

Mechanical pencil and blending stick; texture added with Photoshop.

Thadras

What a piece! The scales ( which are marvelous, no matter what you think), the hair, the fire, the expression--wow, the expression!

He just has this mischievous look as he begins to change to his dragon form..."Oh yes, I do have a secret."

It's amazing how fluid the transition from skin to scales is. As usual, very well done. I envy your talent.

I assume he's in the midst of transforming to obliterate whoever has him looking so....upset. For lack of a better term.

The depth and detail of your sketches are always so amazing and mind boggling. Always Always ALWAYS they demand ample time to fully digest and study, never NEVER allowing just a glance over.

My gratitude for your continued willingness to share these wonders on DA.

Good one :)
The scales are good, only near shoulder they are too long.
Also I think that hair is good as well it looks wilder that way.

The face expression is realy good and shiws his temperement.
