Battle of Thralls by OchreJelly Battle of Thralls by OchreJelly
I'm less than happy with this but running short on time, so I figured I'd just submit this and hope for the best. I'm not really sure my adjustments to the line-width and appearance fall within the rules of the contest, but I sure hope so, as the official-examples did that sort of thing.

Anyways, this is for the Skribble contest! While looking at the lines provided for the contest I thought a dragon would fit nicely, and extrapolated the idea to include two battling dragons in the sky. Originally it was very fantasy-esque, but I felt I needed to change settings for once, so I switched it over to sci-fi and made it sort of a mish-mash between the two.

You can see the details and where the lines ended up being used here.

As always, Painter 9, few too many hours for my liking. Thanks for looking.

Well, mostly because I rushed it. It was still fun to work on, though.

That is amazing use of those shapes. I thought they were ugly but you made them a seamless and integral part of an awesome piece. Nice work.

Great work! The lighting feels real and shape the picture perfectly!
I drew a dragon for the contest too, but I stayed with the fantasy theme. If you wanna check it out, here's the [link]
And good job with incorporating the lines, it kinda reminds me of how I did it in mine...:)... that's a good thing! ;)

You did a brilliant job in the use of the scribbles they are obvious and this is just gorgeous. The perspective and the detail is just amazing. Yeah I was a little unsure for myself that is about the whole appearance of the lines but the examples did some things that can back you up so no worries. I truly am in awe of this image, how long did you invest into this piece? Anyways I can only wish you luck and I am so happy you entered this gem in time.

It's stuff like this that makes me wonder why I even bother when there's always someone better. Spectacular work.

If it means anything, there's always someone better. I could rattle off at least a dozen artists who are better and faster than I am, who I could never hope to match in a million years, and then another dozen after that.

Just have fun and work hard. Mostly have fun. :D

Oh I know. "Never compare yourself to someone unless you're learning how to improve" and such. Still would be cool to get an Ipad. ;)

Well, in all seriousness there's nothing wrong with using others to motivate yourself to improve. It's hard to strike a balance between motivation and developing a serious dislike towards one's own art though.

As someone who goes through that here and there, I just want to advise against it! :la:

An iPad would be interesting, not sure what I'd use it for though.
