Both look completely amazing! The sexing is just more realistic. Personally, I love the color in the first! X4 too cool!

There's definite improvement, but I love them both! So professional looking, aaaah ;w; The eye-catching colours on the serpent's eyes and mouth really draw me in to both.

By flawless i meant there are no mistakes, while there are some in the first one. The fact is that the colors of the first one suits my tastes better ^^

the change of tools does not mean improvements, digital painting are overrated and (most of the) people only care about the details; the first one is much better for the colors, lights and sense of movement

To me it does, since I am using almost the same techniques, and my traditional works have benefitted from me painting digitally and vice versa. I agree about the general lack of movement in the new version though.

I like the first one a little more, just because of the oil painting texture. The second one would probably be considered objectively better, though.

though, everything you worked on- being the person, the eyes of the dragon, and the water's background, all have considerably more to them. though the first has a charm of its own, the second simply has more to show.

Hmm, perhaps I subconsciously painted the old one with exactly this feeling, this 'charm', while on the new one I was only little spontaneous. I tried to pay more attention to details, effects and surroundings. I honestly can't remember what was on my mind when I did the old painting. XD

gotta say, the left composition is filled with more tension, it looks like something you'd see in a story-book. it is consistently diagonal which makes for some good action.
the right one is static and th character looks more like he's talking to the beast rather than fighting it with his sword aside.

the technique itself, density is improved.

Nightpark Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Hobbyist
Thanks for the feedback! I wanted to achieve a calm before the storm atmosphere in the new one rather than the overall movement in the original. I also tried to focus more on the sea as an element of action and movement in contrast to a tense moment before a fight breaks loose.

Dragdar Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012
In achieving that (bit harder goal) your obstacles are the beast which you kept the same from the action scene, with the wild look in the eyes and the wide open mouth. it should look more inquisitive, like it's examining the prey.

and the character should be passive and awed, like he can't believe his eyes, arms low. my biggest gripe is that awkward stiff sword-arm, you'd never hold a sword like that. i'd put his sword in the left arm just to make drawing it simpler.

oh now that i look at it

the newer dragon has scales, and the lightings much better
but i still don't get-
oh
do these dragons breathe fire?
that may explain the lighting in the mouth.

i like it very much but there are only minor differences in four years.
i'm not one to really sugar coat critiques, so sorry >.<

Thank you for your comment. Of course they breathe fire, which dragon does not? Besides, it creates a nice contrast. ;)
But please be a little more attentive towards the differences between the two paintings. See, I spent much more time and nerves on the new version. It is more than twice the size of the original and there were many things that bothered me in the old painting. I worked far harder on the remake, such as the water, the mouth and eyes, and the interaction of all the small details which ought to make a painting more belivable. In the end I spent at least 20 hours working on the new piece.
It's perfectly fine if you don't like it so much, but please, don't be so quick judging people's work, okay?

i'm sorry if anything made you feel dissapointed. i didn;t mean to do that.
i was just not in the mood i guess xD
and i do see the difference in everything you said c:
it is better now that i actually am not a a lazy do-little and actually click the links and look at them full size xD

Great improvement ! But i prefer the position of the man in the old work, i think it's more dynamic (?) ! :) The new one doesn't seem really ready to fight, and he's a little too... stiff ? Anyway... The new dragon is reaaally impressive !! Congratulations :)

Thank you! :) Well, you are right about that pose. I did not want to repaint the old one, because he looked too much like a surfer in my opinion, and I wanted to go more for that kind of 'come at me' look, thus the upright stance and gesture. Probably not the wisest choice but eh... too late. xD I enjoyed drawing him anyway. ;) Thanks for the feedback, always appreciated!
