This was when I was first getting started... on the style, I mean, of mixing random things together. First good person I did, too! (probably only because its face was shadowed, LOL)
Ah, this one was OKAY... But the face was terrible and the dragon didn't look right. :P
Ooh, I happen to LOVE this one!! One of the only males I was ever able to do... and looked good!! I especially liked the eye. :D
I really thought that this one looked nice... Its a full picture, taking up the whole paper. :D
This is what inspired my Leviathan painting, which you will see more of in the 'Grand Finale'. Same position...
Look familiar? Aha, I can see it in your faces! You're thinking, 'Oh, that's nice...wait. Is that...?' (maybe not) And YES!! Saphira off of the cover of Eragon. For those of you who've read it, get out your copy if you have one! You will notice minimal differences... Longer muzzle, bigger muzzle, different look... Yah. I love doing this kind of thing free-hand, making different changes to make it sort of my own... :D Enjoy, because there's more!!
And the second book! Introducing Thorn off of the cover of Eldest, second book in the Inheritance Cycle.
Ah, as you can see in my... uh... flowery script, this is Glaedr, off of the cover of Brisingr, the third book!! He is one of my favorites of all of my sketchings...
This is one from my 'not-so-nice' sketchbook... I'm not going to post them all because a lot of them were either terrible or just doodles. This is a dragon that Manny told me to draw, choosing the positions of the legs (though I gave her options) and such. So Manny gets some of the credit of this.
This one has sort of a story behind it, though not the kind you're thinking of... or maybe it is. Anways, this is something that I'm going to write about--eventually.
The Woodserpent!! Run!! Naw, you don't have to... unless you want to...? Never mind. Woodserpents are very dangerous... like trees, especially those in the Wraithen Woods. They're huge dragon-like snakes, and are sort of evil... Red, blue, orange or yellow ones are poisonous, while green is not.
A little of a random Drawing...
Ah, didn't put a face because I'm terrible at faces. This is I-Forgot-Her-Name's coronation dress. And Leauphaun, then I realized--You draw dresses like this. Sorry I copied you... I drew a whole lot, but only a few turned out. Yours are still way better, though... *sigh*
One of my favorites of the ones I drew. Only one that looked exactly right! Manny looked at it and said, "I'd wear it if it had sleeves" Well, there are sleeves, but I didn't shade them so she didn't notice them. :) This was done for my main character, Myrean, who happens to hate dresses (LOL)
And this is my only other good one. You can probably see the remains of where I USED to have her hair, but that didn't look right. :)
Ah, the Sanadria Cliff Dragon. And my bad handwriting included, too!! I designed it during a class that my parents are heading... LOL.
These are pictures of a horse I was drawing... in the middle of the stages. See the mechanical pencil? Since I have no idea how to use shading pencils, thats all I use through the whole thing. Works quite well, actually.
NOW FOR THE GRAND FINALE!!!! My paintings. :D :D :D :D :D :D
NUMBER ONE: The Leviathan (not really a name, but Jake has nothing more creative)
AND THE AIR-DRAKE!!!
OK, Grand Finale is over!! Sorry folks, time to go back into the swamp or the belly of that fish... or wherever you were before. Under your dog's paw, hiding in the cabinet--wherever you were.
Oh yes, and those ones that I had before... The other painting pictures that you've been waiting for, well, I can't find them. Sorry! Jake's computer is confusing...
