Demonic Dragon by luffie Demonic Dragon by luffie
Demonic Dragons can be so bad ass. Another dragon addition to my ever expanding gallery. Got the inspirations from Monster Hunter game, I thought it will be a good idea to have a dragon whose horn is facing the front so it can skewer anybody that crosses his path, rather than the usual backwards horns.

It is also an exercise to paint "less detail" and concentrate mor on the shape and volume. While there are still a number of details, but it was done only at the last and they are really quite manageable than my previous works. So here you go, my dragon needs to ram something now...XD

Hi, Luffie! I just wanted to say that you make an amazing work of art in each of your images! This one is a particular favorite of mine, because ever since I was in preschool I am attempting to draw dragons such as this. But this dragon really caught my interest. The massive length of it, the teeth, the glowing wings, and the captivating feeling doom it gives. And I love how you curved and positioned the horns. Keep up the amazing work!!! And please tell me how to give drawings perspectives. I MUST know that when I'm drawing. I can only draw 2-D dragons.

Hi Gaverka, thank you for your interest in the dragon! I am glad it can be an inspiration for you. I am not sure how I can teach you on perspectives as there are so much better tutorials out there. But what I can say is, if you are bad at perspective/drawing, you can try to trace art that you like first, keep on tracing them, 10-20 dragons. Slowly it will improve your accuracy in knowledge in drawing them, and when that knowledge is embedded in your mind, then you can start drawing dragons with perspective. Do the same for topics you like, eg. anatomy. Trust me, it works.

Dragons were the original Eldritch Abominations, fantastic amalgams of different animal parts that dwelled in dark mysterious depths and underground with ancient knowledge and strange powers; where man could fight the weaker ones but the more ancient ones were invincible, even more so than gods at times.

I think this type of dragon really captures that dread and otherworldliness that dragons once invoked before they were replaced by deep sea animal and body horror amalgams.

Thanks for that explanation :)

it looks kind of like a spider with the way the eyes are that is both awesome and terrifying

More eyes to look for intruders eh?
kunaidragon Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2016
yeah I guess your right about that but I don't think any creature is going to be stupid enough to try and sneak up on this mega monster dragon

"You sold your soul to fiends, for monstrous power beyond your own. You used lies and curses instead of your inner strength, to covet what you don't have. You indulge in murder and torment of your own kind, all for your own amusement! You call yourself a true dragon? You are a twisted abomination, an affront to our ancestry! We shall strike you down and burn away your tainted carcass!"

Is this your own writing?
BrutalityInc Featured By Owner Edited Mar 10, 2016
Yes. I do similar original drabbles on many other works before.

sounds good, you should do more lengthy ones, separated by pictures for easy reading. I like to read novels by Games-Workshop, they have such a nice command of english.
