Raptor Dragon by blacksapphiredragon
Raptor Dragon
i was having a more detailed look at bird wings, which then lead to me wanting to draw a dragon with bird wings, which THEN lead to me wanting to draw a raptor dragon haha. i haven't ever really drawn raptor dragons much in my life and i wanted to really think about this one so i looked up lots of reference xP
overall i'm pretty happy with the design :33 and i had a bit of fun with the colouring at the end haha
yes i am aware that you can't see it's other wing or forelimb

constructive crits welcomed~

Wyvern by blacksapphiredragon
the original plan was to paint this, but i got part of the way through before realising that i need more practice before i'm quite ready to tackle a pose like this. all is not lost however as i've decided to gift you all with the sketch haha.
i might come back and redraw+paint this sometime, i kind of liked where it was going.
spent a lot of time looking at bat muscles for this one :P

Fire Dragon by blacksapphiredragon
Fire Dragon
jeez, i haven't painted with acrylics in forever! it was kinda enjoyable actually xP
painted this while i was over at ThirteenthAngel's place the other day :3
despite the mistakes overall i'm pretty happy with how it came out, esp considering i have limited experience with acrylics haha

Painting Practice by blacksapphiredragon
Painting Practice
this is purely for practice, not much to really see here
i know that i could spend literally ages on this trying to perfect it but it's gotten to a point where i feel that i should just move on to the next picture xP
anyway, i know there are mistakes but i've learned a lot doing this! :D
concrit welcomed~

Hi there! I'm making my return to dA :D Please be patient while I rework everything and start submitting new art haha


Sun Aug 10, 2014, 7:29 AM by blacksapphiredragon:iconblacksapphiredragon:
It's been ridiculously long since I was active here, about three years or so I'd say. It doesn't look like many people from back then are active here anymore either haha. Anyway, I've matured a lot since I was last here - I keep looking at old journals and artist comments and cringing but I'll keep them all here because I do want some record of my progress over the years (dA took up a ridiculous amount of my teenage years!). I've also finally changed my misspelled username, why didn't I use spellchecker all those years ago, why??

I guess I'd better tell you what I've been up to these past three years then! I completed grade 12 in 2011 and immediately enrolled and was accepted into a university animation course :D I'm in my final year now (scary) so I'll either be out in the workforce by next year OR staying on for honors year, it really depends whether I get a job at the end of this year or not lol. I guess I might be posting some animations here along with regular art :)

The main reason that I'm back here is because I want to push my boundaries as an artist and really immerse myself in the artist community again. I also feel that it'll be good for me to promote my art here more and have a more professional(?) appearance as an artist I guess.
I hope to cross-post some art of mine from my tumblr shortly but in the meantime please excuse how empty my gallery is!

I hope that some of you are still around and willing to say hi and I'd also love to say hello to new people~

....Yes, I am still incredibly obsessed with dragons, that part of me has not changed in the slightest :P
