Newgrounds Background Image Theme

First flight


Done on black paper with colour pencil.

A mother dragon attempts to get her stubbon baby to fly.

Some of my art (this included) is already posted on Elfwood and Deviant art, and one forum I visit. So don't panic if you see it up on those sites. I'll be leaving a note on those sites saying the same thing.

Maybe it's just my weekness for dragons, but I really love it. It's great how you use different textures for the grass and the dragons. Only some small details like that the moon seems a bit unreal. It misses it's glow. But I still love the artwork though.

Nice work here

Very nice work here and some nice effort aswell, allthough I wouldnt mind seeing some more effects throughout it was a pretty good piece of work, so keep making fantastic stuff like this. so keep at it. and keep making nifty things. for all of us to enjoy. This is really cool, and I love dragons and fantasy style stuff and you gave this one a nice "ACTION-POSE" so something is really happening here. great piece of art. You have some amazing ideas and that shows here, the effortsof your labor come through and it shows strong with detail, so I for sure am excited for more of your work. I became Accustomed to this style allthough i was not at first, You put a nice little twist on this.

And as this review comes to and end, I still have enjoyed what you have presented here and I can see some possible updates and or changes for the better, maybe some small changes here and there so I will suggest a few possiblities here and there and hope it works out for the best. The "MOON" could have more of a glow and shine and adding some flames from the dragons would also be a plus of effects.


Nice dragons.

Really great work! Nicely done, it could use more details in the background such as more glare from the moon, but other than that, it is great work. The dragons are nicely done and the landscape really sets the mood with some other contributions in it. Details were nicely put in it and... it's just a very fantastic artwork! Great job!


Really awesome detailing and expressions. I love the gentleness, get strength this picture has. Really amazing work!
