    hello @all!
    i'm from germany, love fantasy & scifi and sometimes drew fantasy creatures, especially dragons.
    for introduction i'd like to post my last drawing, just pencils, i'm not very skilled in digital painting and like pencils more. :) here is the link to the devianartpage of it, tell me what you think:

    first off, HELLLO wie geht's.

    secondly I like the drawing. gotta keep it old school, no need for digital painting if you can make it look good with pencils. alas I suck at any kind of drawing (except maps, I love drawing maps). and willkommen to TFF

    Hello there and welcome to TFF! So, how long have you been drawing dragons and such?

    I was just about to recommend the Art House subforum to you, thinking this was a Greetings thread. :confused::D

    Hmm, I do like wyverns! :D

    I saw in your DeviantArt gallery that you've also drawn Cylon Centurions and Alien aliens. Awesome stuff!

    if it's purely fantasy creature, I'd say dragon or wyvern. a fantasy-ish version of wolves is my prefered, kinda like Direwolves or in Mithgar ( one of my favorite series by Dennis McKiernan) he has a wolf race called Draega.

    really cool works. personally I'm a European style fan, though I do like Asian.

    wish I could draw like this so bad

    Welcome and great to see a new and budding artist join the site! Looks like you've got a real passion for drawing and you're developing some good talents!

    If you like drawing dragons, or other beasties I'd suggest looking up the books written by J. "Neondragon" Peffer. There's a lot of "how to" draw books out there and many tend to skip over some steps, you get basic construction lines and then a highly detailed finished result. Neondragon isn't like that and takes time to go through each step which results in a great guide that you can use to help learn new methods and skills.

    You can copy her dragons and beasties and then use what you learn to make your own.

    She's a few books out there such as "Dragonart Evolution" "DragonArt Basics for Beginners" "DragonArt Collector's Edition" and others so do a search; well worth it

    thank you @Overread
    sure she has the way better photoshop skills (which isn't very important to me)
    but mine are already more detailed (scaled skin etc.).

    but thanks anyway to show me the nice gallrey of her.
