It's epic o3o although, I recall Cefurkan doesn't really add drawings where the ends are cut... so... you'll have to draw in the rest of the lower body....

First off, doing clean line work isn't all that easy...ok its pretty easy, but its not like anyone can do it, so give people that can draw a clean, anatomically correct outline some credit. 

That said, I like to think that it's not so much how clean your lines are, but how clearly you can outline your vision. 

Anyone can trace an animal or put together some clean line work, but if you don't know how to fill it out it doesn't really matter. 

Just practice layering your colors an shadows and you'll get the hang of it eventually. 

Its just like legos.

Should I make the steel grey/rusty looking, chromed out, or something else.

If something else please provide an example picture of what you mean. 

Thanks people!

Make a partner for Dractanium, name it Excagon, it's also Steel-Dragon, but its more ferocious looking, and it has sharp parts around its hull, it's like a blade dragon... Instabuy!

EDIT: It's Excaligon, to amp the Excalibur part of its name...

@Shock - For what specifically? And those Black eyes will be glowing yellow/white eyes soon.

Update: Have most of the base color done and some of the texture and shadowing done for the main body. Still need to do hands, wings, helmet/head and the actual Dragon (under the armor).


Thoughts so far?

LMAO Yeah, thats because I only have the rusted metal body up there. 

Once the hands and feet are chromed and the black metal wings look more like metal, it should look closer to what I had in my head. 

Though I never had it looking like a dragon sports car in my head so if thats what the original pitch was, my bad lol

Right.

No I want it to look old and sturdy, not old and breaking down lol

I just use the paint brush with feathered edges size 3.0 (for the most part).

Old and sturdy is good for an ancient monster.

But the description might need some tweaking then. The original was more of a "improvement every year" kinda thing, meaning that it grew with the world as we got our material for better technology. More elements discovered and stuff.

Like Titanium, Platinum, Diamond, bla bla.
