Silly Toothless by Dragowl Silly Toothless by Dragowl
...Trix are for kids!

Omgawsh moar Toothless. I think I've gotten him out of my system for now XD

Not much to say about this. I tried a new-ish coloring style..thing. It was fun :3 And all of my art professors are telling me to "draw the background, not just the object" (mostly with still life stuff, but still), so I tried to make a legitamate-ish background, for practice, kinda :P Also supposed to "see negative space." I don't think I did that here really BUT OH WELL XD

And uh, that was supposed to be a bee on his nose, but it doesn't really look like one anymore to me :P

And I know he has both his tailfins XD This is before he met Hiccup..I guess XP

Anyway, enjoy XD And any critique about the background would be appreciated! <3

How so? What would you have done differently?

No, not a criticism at all!
I was saying Toothless has been at the Dragon Grass again - you know, the stuff that acts like catnip X10 for Dragons.

fffu <3 this is adorable

Can I just critique the drawing style a little? I don't want to seem.. out of place, because I think it's adorable, I just want to make some comments on something.

Okay I'm taking a guess here.. you took the multiply layer and shaded it down with lighter/vs darker colors until you reached white? /bad at explaining

First of all: I LOVE how you use the colors in this picture, because the composition looks real. Not a color stands out or looks out of place, it has that "dulled" look but that's what I really love about it.

But basically, for the shading, it looks good, but it's a little bit messy. (If I'm assuming right...) I used to use this style of shading, and it was rewarding in the end, but terribly annoying to do. Though on black, I find it looks a bit better than other colors because it defines the shapes better. Especially on the wings, if you defined the shadows a bit more, it would add more depth into them, because they look a little.. flat? And also, light reflects. One thing I've been having fun doing myself is adding a different color into the shadows to give it more.. depth? Like where the shadows get dark add a little blue or something.

I'm sorry if I'm... too confusing but :C I really do love it <3

That's actually not how I colored/shaded..XD But I think what you say will still apply! What I actually did was draw on layer of flat colors, and then make a few layers on top (clipping masks, to be exact), and shaded with a billion different colors on those. I'm too scared to use the multipy thing XPP

I'm really glad you like how the colors look! They were fun to experiment with, and I'm glad it worked :3

And I definitely agree with everything else you just said! XD Since this is kind of my first time shading with several colors (aside form different shades of the base color, I mean), I was a bit hesitant to go "crazy" with other hues and such in the shades and highlights. But you're definitely right, and I could've added some darker blues, or greens, or something, in the really dark shadows. And I DEFINITELY agree about the wings - I had actually planned to shade them more, forgot towards the end, and decided last minute that they were okay..but now I see that you're right, and they are kind of flat XP

And all in all, this certainly is messy XD It was mostly an experiment thing, with the coloring/shading, but I could've cleaned it up better ^^;

You weren't confusing at all! I'm glad you like it, and I really appreciate your help!! <33 Thanks!
