He is loaded with sand!

I heart the detail in the scales, you use Phtoshop Elements right? I am stuck with PhotoExplosion Deluxe :/ its mainly for phto editing not coloring pictures and drawing stuff.

I once had a pet Bearded Dragon, had to give him away 'cause of my cat though :( .

Oh, damn straight.

And yep, Photoshop Elements is to what I've grown comfortable.. although, I used to use Open Canvas... but I can get the softer air-brushy feel in Photoshop for my shadows and highlights more easily and effectively.. to which I'm addicted heavily.^^;

Aaha! So glad to know others that had Bearded Dragons. Mine were my best friends? Hehe. x} What was your's named?:aww:

Eck their names were highly original one was Spyke me thinks and the other was like a latin word or something, latin word for desert. I forget now XD it was a few years ago when I was 9 I'll ask the new owner when I get the chance its 10:30 p.m here so I think its a bit late to do that, I'll try to post it later though me promises.

Yeah shading is pretty important, without it they'd look like well drawn cartoon characters which wouldn't be correct good drawings deserve more.(except for mine of course I can't color worth owl pellets).

Oooh, your dragons sound(ed) to be very cool.:aww:

Aww, well, true in some cases of art; shadows and highlights are what MAKES the piece.
And your work is on a good track. Don't say such bad things about yourself.:hug:

Name z's:
Spyke
Gravis(diginified in latin :) )

So you sy I'm on the right track, like I'm walking down the magical road for Supreme artisitic talent? I think that true, at least if you so my work from the previous school year (5th grade) I look back at it in disgust then I glance back at my recent peice and see fewer overal problems but still notice the areas I need to improve on. I think waht I need to do most is learn digital stuff better, I mean right now that's my smallest level of minute skill.

Oh and the fact I don't know like hardly any of the smilie codes also annoys me got to go look that up...

Very wicked namessss!
"Gravis" sounds all.. grizzly. I dig.:aww:

It is good you know what you need to work on, this is the first step to realizing artistic groovability.
Although, I would suggest working on what you know best first, before you delve into a new media.. or it may hinder your full ability in both medias.

And yeh, the different smilies can be tough to fully memorize. I still reference the Emoticon Legend.

Random Ramble: How come no one else has replied to it, I mean there is hardly any one lookingat your stuff, rather weird I guess maybe 'cause its recent or soemthing.

So by focusing on my traditional semi-talent it would be better in the long run than working on Digital stuff, like if I went into the unknown I'd become out of practice in drawing? I think I get ;)

I wish I could just click the smilie sympols on the side of the screen and dragon them to the text, it'd be a good update for DA.

Reply to Random Ramble: Aah, probably because I changed my account recently.. and uploaded my.. more favourite works.. from the old one and deleted the old ones.. etc.

And yep! Focus on one thing first, master it to a degree, and tackle the next thing.:aww:
