My Art Trade with the lovely :iconenaxn: of her lovely avian character Syzdaa. I played around with a different technique with this one but I hope you guys like it. I had a lot of fun with him and his lovely colors and design. :D
And I had a lot of fun with the trade too with :iconenaxn: I got to play with a very fun character and make something interesting out of it. So if you ever want to try another trade pop a note and drop on by. I am always here though it may not seem like it. ;)


YAY she finished her part, not a bad take on Morgan actually. I really like it. take a good look and give back some love :D



Syzdaa is to :iconenaxn:

Avians are to :iconkilara:

Artwork is to me :iconthirteenth-sanction:

Oh wow.. this really blew me away. :wow:
The colours are so vibrant and beautiful, I really like the colours you chose for this picture! And the scenery is utterly beautiful, love those mountains!
The dragon's pose is so epic! And all the details... just amazing!! How you do that perspective is beyond me :faint:
Wonderful work! :heart: :heart:

I would be truly honored if you would allow me to use this pic in a Dragon's secret lives montage video. If you would say yes I will compensate by putting your name, screen or real if you prefer, on the pic along with the credits, and the description with a link to your DA page next to it.

A startlingly new take on a dragon. It almost doesn't look like a dragon.

Well it is not my species, it's actually a species called an Avian. Feel free to take a look at the creator of the species's work in the description ;)

SUPER sorry this comment is coming to you so late! I've had a really long work week lmao. BUT ANYWAY HI ANYWAY *WOW* This is just BEAUTIFUL!!!! You seriously did SUCH an amazing job with this!!! Seriously I just LOVED watching it come to life with all of your WIPs! Your anatomy is SUPERB with him! Man faces like that are SO hard to get from ANY angle except, like, the side. BUT YOU DID SUCH A GOOD JOB LOOK AT THAT GORGEOUS GORGEOUS POSE OH MY LOOOOORD. I LOVE all those delicious feathers and scales THE SCALES ARE JUST AMAAAAZING. Omg just LOOK at them all! They're all so shiny and amazing and GORGEOUS o____o. I love the bright amazing colors you used to shade them too! It makes him all shiny and shimmery and GORGEOUS *__*. Plus the ever-so-slight backlighting from the sun is just AWESOME. I love how you blurred the tail too! Definitely a neat touch! AND the ends of his wings! Eeee he looks so lovely!

THE BACKGROUND TOO IS AMAAAAAAZING! I just LOVE that yellowgreen SKY omg! :love: I don't usually see something with that color palette, so this is a LOVELY change of pace! :heart:. I LOVE love all those pretty pines! Alpine valleys like this are just some of my FAVORITE things to draw AND be in, so this is extra fantastic! I LOVE those green spiky mountains and all the layers of gorgeous gree pine trees and just ugh EVERYTHING! The water is so shimmery and gorgeous as welllll!! Omg you seriously just made the most lovely scene omgomg.

Thank you SO so much for the trade aaah! I'ma try and finish my half sometime in the next few days! Eee this was such an honor you're so fantastic LOVE :heart::heart:

awwwww :blush::blush::blush::blush: I am honored you liked what I did. I had tons of fun with this character. He was such a lovely palette I had to think of what I should draw to compliment him. I figured since it was getting near fall I should try more fall like warm colors to compliment his colder blues. I really wanted to do a full body so I finagled with poses for awhile before I managed this one, one I finished the colors and such I wasn't sure how I was gonna do the BG but I wanted it at an angle because I've never really done one and I wanted to play with the result.

But I am soo happy you like him, I had soo much fun with him and the art trade. We should try one again sometime. ;)

I really love the colors in this, the soft oranges and greens compliment the blues of Syzdaa very nicely. I also like the pose, it really gives him a sense of movement. Very nicely done over all! C:

Oh my gosh, this is beautiful ;u; You did an amazing job depicting the movement of this beast as well...
The only thing I have to say is perhaps use some brighter brights? >u< I know it's sunset in this image but your dragon seems awefully dark in some spots. maybe use some reflective lights of some sort? ;u;

noctem-tenebris Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012  Student General Artist
Well I did make it dark, especially in the front as the sun is behind him so he's wouldn't have much light in the front end, especially with the wings casting their shadows. But thanks, I am honored you like him :D

Hm... how to put this to words. :d

:icondragonwant: To attempt to put it to words: Simply amazing. The detail you put in the avain is spectacular, clear dow to the motion blur on the tail. The background is very well done (camera angle is a really nice choice, makes you think you're flying with the avain) especially the trees in the foreground. The water looks like water and I like the detail of the mountain's reflection in the river. Then the cropping at the top and bottom gives the picture a framed appearance, making it seem homey.
