Dark and Light Dragons by Derlaine8 Dark and Light Dragons by Derlaine8
These are from about 3-4 months ago. Black one is a Smok evolution and white one is a angel dragon done for Christmas. I would have liked to polish them more, but the display size is only 200 pixels.

It's weird that when I was really young, I drew a lot of dragons, never thinking anything would come out of it. Even when I was trying to become a better artist, learning human anatomy and environments, etc. I never looked back at the dragons I drew as a child as anything more than child's play. And now here I am 20 years later drawing the same things I drew when I was 7 ... life is funny.

The first time I ever saw moga artwork, I was curious as to WHO was the brilliant artist behind these masterpieces. There are so many details put into a limited pace and the visual appeal is stunning. The glow of lava and shine of polished metal pull me into this picture. I didn't notice that these two dragons were meant to clash until now. But now it all fits together. Dark versus light. Archaeon has an angelic yet fierce atmosphere about it. Korozinu is ferocious and deadly. The amount of time and effort contributed to making this masterpiece must have been immense. I personally love dragons and am in awe of these two forces of nature.
What do you think?

Truly epic piece of art work my friends! Dragons can't really be moved down on Renascence scale in my opinion. Keep it up! : D

Reminds me of zekrom and reshiram.
I have the black one and named it toothless based on how to train a dragon.

A was you could have "polished" em more is to add more highlights, but i don't think that would go well with the current Mogas that are already there.
With Highlights i mean like a outlining for the form to make it more sharp looking.
But still, looks fantastic !

Wow, I love the design, color and mood captured in each dragon. My ... “dragons” still look like a winged lizard gone mad, unlike yours that look like a possible new creature. Everything flows nicely, balanced tones and colors with a hint of something vivid (I like the way you lit up the darker dragon’s mouth) to catch the eye. The only thing I’d suggest would be for the feet/paws/claws; the way they’re positioned with the lack of a full foot kind of looks like it would hurt to stay on the ground with all those claws and spikes to hold their weight. I’m just picky with details, sorry. This is really excellent art! Beautiful work!

I’ll....I’ll just keep working my 16 year old hand to make better lines...

I love these ones, even if I dont have them yet.

I don't know whether you're aware of it, but 'Smok' means 'dragon' in Polish :)
cheers!
