Thread: First time posting. Critiques welcome.

    First time posting. Critiques welcome.

    Hey all, I've never posted on a forum for fear of critique, but I've come to realize how important be perspective is, and would value some constructive, experienced eyes.
    This came out of a random doodle, and turned into this Japanese style dragon.
    Thanks in advance...

    These are deviantart links, since I cannot attach photos.

    Welcome to PencilJack!

    Here is a quick run down on how to post images on PencilJack.

    First, go to the image hosting site (DevArt, Imageshack, etc) and RIGHT CLICK on the image you want to post.

    Next, select 'COPY IMAGE URL' or 'COPY IMAGE ADDRESS' and then return to PencilJack. Last, in the Quick Reply section, select INSERT IMAGE icon at the top (3rd from the right) and PASTE the URL into the box that pops up.


    For Flickr, at the bottom right is 'Share photo', it's the arrow icon. Click it and select ‘BBCode’. Copy the link. Come Back here and paste info.

    Done.

    I would also add that we try to keep the image limit to three per thread. It helps for critiquing, but since this is the same image in different stages, I don't mind this at all. It's good to see the progression.

    Ok great, thanks. I read the FAQ for posting and was a little confused.

    Welcome.
    I'm not that experienced, but I'd like to see more blacks. I believe the pros start with a tiny thumbnail drawing to get the composition and black-white ratio. Blacks/shadow give form and volume. A giant dragon should weigh a couple tons!

    Great point, I was studying some pen and ink drawings and noticed that very thing

    Here's an update. I'm still very much feeling out lighting from from behind, so any advice or edits would be very welcome.

    Not sure why my pictures are still not showing up. I am using DeviantArt links... Any thoughts?
