Dragon Side View 2004

An old picture I made in 2004. As you can see, my teenage years made some things that were half decent.

Reminds me of something made in deviant art's dragon maker.
Also, I have to be hard on you. Because I want you to be hard on me.

I was banned from DeviantArt back when I was a teenager. I uploaded some art and did not visit the website for over 5 years, and they stated that refusing to use their website was enough to constitute a ban. Humorously, ever since then, I haven't been back there.
I do not know what this dragon maker you talk of, but I do know, if anything, this criticism is helpful. It tells me you want my drawings to be more unique and original... that you don't want it to resemble other forms of art. Sadly, you ask of me to make my art not look like art I've never seen... If I never saw the art, how can I effectively make my art different than it?

(I flagged that other guy's comment as abusive)
I like the wings and the shape of his face is quite original, maybe because it reminds me of Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon, I don't know. ^_^

Looks like a pile of crap. Maybe you should post something more recent, not that I have much hope for anything else you create.

VinnitoElito responds:

I can understand an old work of art I made as a young teen is nothing compared to what an adult could do... let alone I should post recent work instead of what works I took pride in as a kid, but you did not even critique what made this drawing bad. You only tossed insults and nothing else. I should expect that there are more people who only spit feces on the net than actual words on the net, helping no-one, your kind should be expected everywhere, I see you everywhere, and honestly, I pity you all.

Dude, awesome dragon!! I love his back fin, really cool!! I gave him a 3 cause I think he needs some refining, especially on his tail where it kinda fades out into the paper, but on the whole a great start!! And also next time you draw, try drawing the back toes a little more together so as to make the foot look more flat :) I am a dragon artist as well, please feel free to check my draggys out and give some critiques too!! <3

VinnitoElito responds:

Thank you for your judgement. I indeed, this was an unrefined sketch I made when I was young, as a young teen I did not have much lessons and simply drew what came into my head. The tail certainly was horribly incorporated, I can understand why some people don't like this ancient art piece...

This artist has not been scouted yet.
