    Fluffyraptor has been colored.

    Your sketches looked better each time but this last one is much cleaner than the previous sketches. Is this one all hand drawn and colored? Or did you use something like Adobe Illustrator's two features: "LiveTrace" to create the outlines and "LivePaint" to fill in the colors?

    Personally I have zero artistic ability so I always rely on technology to create my images. I can't imagine having the ability to just pop a picture onto paper with nothing more than pen and ink.

    Edited to add:
    Oh poop, the new forum doesn't automatically include photos of previous posts when you quote them. I'm refering of course to your colored "Fluffy" head.

    We did. We also had Fruit Viking.

    Pretty much how I did this: http://sylxeriaguardian.deviantart.com/art/Simple-Warcraft-Whelp-tutorial-315568834

    I drew it in at a lower resolution (Around 470 pixels) with a pencil-like brush, then I copied that into a new document, scaled it up to 1,600 pixels, then slowly traced over it on a new layer~

    I traced it by hand with my tablet :3

    ...and carrot cake.

    I think you need to get a new stepfather Miss Wolf. D:

    Yeah but I cannot change it. I do not want my mum to control my love life so I do not dictate my mum's love life. I know my mum wants me to find a guy to fall in love with instead of a gal. She also wants him to have similar beliefs to the ones I was raised with.

    Someone requested I draw my raptor Fluffy with his dragon character. This is what I have so far (And he seems to like it, despite how much I see wrong with it, so I guess this is what I'm going with)...

    My stepfather blames me for my mum not feeling well right now. According to my stepfather my mum is not well and is resting in her bedroom. He probably does not want me to see her.


    I tried watching an episode of torchwood but the Internet connection is unstable.


    I had a video saved on my kindle but now I do not feel like watching it.

    I got a short novel for Christmas a few years back that was supposedly about a red dragon. I only skimmed through it very briefly and saw that the main character probably wasn't one (Or if it was it was shapeshifted.) and later in the novel a black dragn was trying to force the main characters to kill it for him.

    I tossed the book out because it had the AD&D logo on it. Don't know why I didn't see that there earlier, but all things considered I should probably be glad I noticed it later than sooner, since tossing a present in the trash shortly after opening it would be a bad decision.


    Hmm... Not sure why, but I played NetHack a bunch despite it being a - or at least based off of - the D&D series. Maybe because it was straightforward with no actual character developemnt and interactions (I do like that yes, but depending on the game and setting sometimes I'd prefer a simple "Just go out and do somethin'" sort of gameplay rather than something more complex.), and all the creatures were just tiny little 5 pixel wide icons. Much easier on my mind than something that would make me feel bad about killing later ^^;
    .
    *edit to add* that I never did reach a level in the dungeon that would start spawning dragons of any kind, but I do know what their icons look like in-game since I browsed over on the wiki.
    .
    .
    .
    Anyway just needed to get that out. I don't have any regrets throwing it out, and probably would have had more if I read it, but I just felt the need to say something. Not sure why though =/

    Can't say I wrapped my head around actually animating the animated joint things yet, i seems like a lot of extra work for very poor results for me so far :(

    "Drakes claim to be dragons--until the dragons show up."

    I think that was from a MagicTG card...? Not sure and don't really care, but I like the quote XD
    Although when I'm writing and drawing, I'm a little more biased towards a drake being a "teenage" sort of dragon rather than a separate species. I think that started when I first played Warcraft 3 and it just... Stuck ^_^

    I can now say with all certainty that I hate drawing raptor hands. The way I used to draw 'em was very easy, but this new way is sooo tough! DX

    Anyway. The pic on the left I looked at a few other pictures of models and such to get the general pose and stuff right, but I ended up making his head too small and narrow. I resized it and redrew some of it, but it still seems too... I dunno... The skull just doesn't seem as thick as it should be. Continuity, proportions, and fluff do not mix well with me, I'm afraid DX

    I am getting better at drawing his tail feathers, but his neck fluff still comes out resembling a dragon's plate-scales rather than fluff XD

    *edit* Geez... At first I hated the left drawing's tail feathers and liked the right ones more, now that they're colored I can't stand to look at the ones on the right XD
