I did an art trade with someone over on deviantART. My half's a little... uh a lot late. If you want to see the original character design, copy paste and remove the space: http:// shadowdragon22.deviantart .com/art/Dragon-Arethus-8 6673279?q=gallery%3Ashado wdragon22%2F18954&qo=64
This is one of those things where the more I look at it, the more I hate it. It was fun to work on, but I'm not sure if I'm pleased with the end product or wish I had a flamethrower to dispose of it with. Although I probably shouldn't aim flamethrowers at my computer, come to think of it. Oh well. Considering it was the first time I rendered scales in Photoshop, it could've been worse.
Also, no comments about the background, please. That is a mess of burn and dodge and isn't supposed to be pretty. In fact, it's the result of being very tired and ready to shut down Photoshop for a while.
