TOPIC | Portrait Palooza
Portrait Palooza!

I'm drawing a portrait for each of my dragons as a personal challenge, and I thought it would be fun to share my progress here!

I started back in 2014 with a portrait of my mirror, Freyr, and a few sketches of some of my other mirrors. Well, that's as far as I got until real life and other projects sidetracked me hardcore.
But my dragons are now long overdue for art and updated bios! So here we go!

I'll be drawing my lair in groups by breed. Only permanent residents will be drawn, and I will skip drawing any dragon who doesn't currently have a solid gene plan figured out. (No point drawing something that might just end up totally changed!) Skipped dragons will be drawn at a later date, when I figure out their purpose in life. XD

First up are my mirrors!

Completed Portraits:
Freyr
Kava
Russ
Silvari
Mocha
Tora
Taesheu
Mentha
Lapis
Demona
Raven
Unnamed (Witch)

One day I will dress her appropriately, but for now she's quite nekkid. Her portrait shows what she [i]would[/i] be wearing if the options were available. XD The resemblance to Gargoyles' Demona is intended. She came pre-named and her colours and eyes match the character quite perfectly, so I thought I'd play with that a little. I believe that she might've even been someone's fan dragon before I bought her from the AH. XD

Well, it [i]was[/i] done, then I noticed - a little too late - that she is an Earth dragon, not a Fire dragon. Whoops. I will fix her eyes and backdrop later, but for now, I am taking an art break. XD One late night, I thought it'd be funny to dress Raven to resemble Ever After High's Raven Queen for fun. I also gave her a silly art piece for added effect. Well... it just kinda stuck. Much like Lapis and Demona, she is not a fan dragon, however - I consider this to just be a wink and a nod to the character that inspired the makeover. XD

Though, I have to be honest here... I'm not really feelin' this one. It doesn't quite capture her personality as well as I'd like to. Might have to take another crack at her portrait at a later date. I think the skull mask is mainly what's "off", and I know what I would do differently if I tried again. Either way, it's fine for now! This marks the conclusion to my mirrors who currently have completed character designs! The remaining mirrors will have portraits done when I finalize their designs.

[center]Taking a break on my detailed portraits, I bring you... Quick MSPaint portraits! I made Robin's shortly after adopting him. I just felt inspired to make a quick little doodle portrait.

This one took a lot longer due to his genes. 8X -- [img]http://www.jadephoenix.org/marvir/extra/peropaint.png[/img] An MSPaint portrait for Pero. -- [img]http://www.jadephoenix.org/marvir/extra/visionspaint.png[/img] Visions receives a Paint Portrait! --- [img]http://www.jadephoenix.org/marvir/extra/bananapaint.png[/img] Made a Paint portrait for Banana!

[img]http://www.jadephoenix.org/marvir/extra/mokoupaint.png[/img] Mokou paint portrait! and hoo boy, one morning my art computer was making some terrible noises, so I shut it down as a precaution. The harddrive might be a goner, and that means none of my regular art of the foreseeable future. I can still use this other computer for MSPaint portraits, so there will likely be more of those coming in the near future. Jan 2019 EDIT: [img]http://www.jadephoenix.org/marvir/extra/beforenoon_noc_t.png[/img] Did this one for FR user beforenoon of their Nocturne Earthe!
