Wyrm of fire


"The hottest being on earth, hiding deep under the surface of the earth, looks apon a creature he hadn't seen for thousands of years. The creature in his hands turns into dust, as all other things do when touched by the Wyrm. The crack to the surface is enormous now, and the lands above are filled with fire and lava. The Wyrm, with the last human in his hand, sees the sun die..."

This wasn't easy! I can tell you that. Lava and fire is so difficult to draw. It had to look livelike and moving. It should not be flat at all! So I tried my best on it.

I really love this drawing. The madness, the heat the darkness. I can really feel it coming out. This is really one of my coolest dragons jet. I hope others find so too.

Anyway It's manly done with Corel painter X, I edited a tiny bit with Ps.

It took me about 35 hours, over two weeks.

That is not a wyrm, wyrms have no legs. That is a WESTERN dragon. Also not a wyvern cause wyverns have NO HANDS.


she's a goddes ^^


this is by far the most vibrant drawing ive seen thus far. wow n i dnt care if the foot is off its the bigger picture that im worried about, and ur bigger picture is stupendous. i think u out did urself. wich is always good to be able to make urself think wow i did that such a wonderful feeling i get that when i make my music sooo i know how it feels to always better ur self in ur eyes n not ne body elses, u make art because u want to make art its what u are drawn to ( hehe get it drawn to? i made a funny!) and no 1 ever should tell u how to make ur self better ur the only one who can do tthat, and this and many others are just a step closer. but lemme ask u summin what are u going to do in the end are u going to still be ecstatic about ur own work or is it going to die within u? hope it never dies n if it does i wish and i hope u do aswell that u go out with a blast!

i dont care what other people say: GREAT JOB

just rename yourself "Dragon God"

Not your best

At first glance this looked like the most epic drawing i have ever seen, but then I looked a little longer and I spotted a few things.This is still one of the best drawings Ive seen on the art portal, but when you look closely you can see a few things that look.... off....
The foot on the left side of the rock looks strange. The first toe is not connected to the others and it just appears out of no where.
The right hand looks like its just barely holding onto the rock
The head is too small or the neck is to large at the top.
It could just be me but it looks like the tail just stops when it gets to the same height as his elbow.
The right wing doesn't even look connected to his body like the left one does, it looks like its missing the part that all of the wing bones branch off of.
I know you put alot of time into this, but i also know that you can do better. If you re-do this one with just a few differences I know it will be perfect.
