Draw dragons to improve your composition skills. #Smaugust composition challenge. August 1 - 31
So yesterday was Drawing Day! I spent most of the day working on this drawing of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This is my first TP fanart.
There are a few things that could be better. Mainly I could have worked some more layers of depth into the background like I did with my last illustration. But I was ready to be done with this. I also think I could have thought more about the composition earlier on. But truthfully, I think this came out very well compared to my past fanarts. I thought more about the composition than I usually do. But not as much as I would like to.
In case you're wondering, the hooded figure is princess Zelda in Twilight Princess. I didn't use reference for her so she doesn't look exactly as she does in the game. But I had a specific image in my mind for how I wanted her to look and I didn't want to be held down by reference.
This was drawn and painted 98% in Corel Painter on a Tablet PC laptop. The rest was some touchup work in PhotoShop. 8-10 hours of work.
All critique welcome here. I know this is a lame title for the artwork so if you have a suggestion for a better name, I'm open.
Constructive Critique requested. See Tips.
