Wrath Drake by Tanathiel Wrath Drake by Tanathiel
*Zoom in for the load of detail xD*

EDIT: Fixed most issues, like the wings, background, lightning, contrast, ect :) Hope you guys like the changes ^^
Wallpaper edition: [link]

Finally finished ^^
This is my own idea of a drake that I came up with recently. Basically in DnD, there are places where dragons go to their final rest when the Twilight reach them, thats when I figured out this drake ^^ This is the keeper guy xD

I had really fun with this drawing ^^ For 3rd work with tablet it is better than I originally thought :)
I still have some things to learn how to make better, but so far this is the best of my abilities with this medium :D
I left out the mane after all, since it looked silly on it ^^; Aside of that the head + the wings overgone a huge change in concept ^^


Let me know what you think :D
Comment and Critique is more than welcome ;)

The runes are an interesting touch. If my GM described those to my group I'd probably suggest we orient our attacks on them, in the desperate hope it would make it less-molten...

Though with my luck they'd probably be power-inhibitors or something. :iconquadruplefacepalmplz:

Actually a good guess ;)
As I've made this one, I thoght to do those binds or sheckles on it that keeps it obedient and following orders (in this case, whoever created it xD). These binds also serve a secondary purpose, to keep its body intact :) After all, its a searing hot lava and molten rock binded together and animated by a trapped soul (hence the wraith drake name).
And its definitely not a monster I'd face gladly :D
Technically an elemental-type dragon, with an undead twist due to the wraith that was bound to animate it x) Oh... and have I mentioned its a dragon ? :3 Capable of all the things a dragon can do (excluding magic usage... but lol its still more then enough to handle xD) :P Its sentient, but quite pissed (I guess its understandable... being bound forcibly to a molten rock and lava dump is not the most enjoyable things in life :P)

Well, it would stir up the game if a GM happens to put this one in thats for sure XD

Hello! I found this drake scary and amazing at the same time, and I love the fire furning inside, under the black stone part. However, the strange lake is too symmethrical and the colour of it is unnatural. I have the feeling with this dragon that it is computer-made, maybe because the too-vivid colours. I don't think that it is a problem, but I don't know. You asked everyone to look for mistakes and weak-points... I could find only this one ^^ I love the end of its tail, but except of the end, I have the unnatural-and-computeristic- feeling mainly because of the fire-pattern on the tail, and because of those strange rings around it.
Anyway, it is a magnificent work and I don't like to ... bakker... Most vettem észre, hogy a keretbe-zárt-világ c csoportnak tagja vagy.. Mondom hogy kerülnél oda hozzá, ha nem értenéd a nevét. Ergo nem vagy netán Magyar? Ookés, akkor CTRL+X, profil csekkolás, De igen, CTRL+V, magyarra váltás:D:D SZóval. Marhaszép asárkányod, de van egyfajta természetellenesség érzésem vele kapcsolatban, ami leginkább a farka és a furcsa tó miatt van, szerintem... Mindenesetre mászok át a többi képedhez, és nézegetem őket tovább. :giggle:

Határeset, elfogadjuk ^^
Velem is megesett már, hogy reflexből ráírtam valakire angolul és utólag kiderült hogy magyar a szentem xD
Uhm... nos eredetileg ez egy láva folyónak képzeltem el, ami passzol is a sárkány kissé... heves természetéhez ;P

Most már megtanultam, hogy kerüljem az ennyire éles színeket ^^; Vagy legalábbis csínján bánjak velük =)
Hm, mondjuk lehet, hogy a farok és a vége közötti rész már nem kellett volna agyon szabdalnom repedésekkel ? XD
Azok a gyűrűk... nos úgy gondoltam, hogy azok béklyózzák meg a sárkányt és tartják együtt a formáját (részben). Persze ez inkább fluff xD

Amúgy szerintem alapjáraton is természetellenes a szentem, hiszen izzó lávából + kőből áll javarészt ;P
Amúgy köszi a véleményezést :D

OMFG, it's amazing!!! I love the details so much and the posture, it's all so perfect!! Your WIPS are great too, it doesn't seem that you've been aiming for fire from the beginning, but should I really believe the dates? The first WIP seem to have been submitted on 25 May 2010 and that has been SO long ago! I get bored of a picture if I draw it for more than a week, for me if it doesn't happen immediately, it won't happen at all. Well, your patience surely paid off! The whole picture is so realistic I can feel the heat! Great job!

Hehh yea I was aiming for a more ghostly look actually ^^
But somehow the fire idea got stuck in my mind and I couldn't get it off. Aaaaaand basically thats how I ended up with the fire theme x) Tho on the other hand, fire as an element is really close to me ^^ Not only because I'm born under the sagittarius sign ;P
As far as I remember, I was drawing it for a week... divided with 8-9 sometimes 10h of drawing a day. You could say I was drawing it non-stop xD
Thank you for the compliment :3

No prob! I can't imagine your patience to stick to a drawing for that long!! And, yep, I can believe you that your element is fire! :D Mine is water. We understand each other. x) It's hard to draw though.

Done wrong it looks like... mercury x)

:icon00maria00:
00Maria00 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Mercury is pretty. x) Looks like liquid silver. But when one is drawing water, they should make it more translucent and with the colour of everything that's around it.
Reply
:icontanathiel:
Tanathiel Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Indeed :) The tricky thing with water is that it does need transparence but the other part is the colores used ^^ It can be made really... blunt with too sharp/saturated colors, making it "fall off" the picture ^^;
Well, for the time being I still need practise with water =)
Tho I'm quite happy with the waterfall in the background and how it turned out on this pic ^^

00Maria00 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yaaaay, there was a waterfall here? I was too distracted by the dragon to see that. I like the lava-fall though. x) And my strategy is that if there's something that I can't draw at this stage, just avoid, I guess. I can do practice sketches, but to upload my lame attempts for complicated ornamentation or whatsoever, nah!! XD

:icontanathiel:
Tanathiel Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Well... more of a "Lava-fall" actually X) A few... if you can call it like that :D
I like to look around for tutorials and pics how people do the stuff I have trouble doing. Actually... sometimes its so blatantly simple to do it, I just do a facepalm XD
