TUTORIAL: Dragon Details by SammyTorres TUTORIAL: Dragon Details by SammyTorres
Details like eyes - horns - ears - tongues :)
I'll probably make another dragon details tutorial, does anyone have a suggestion to put in it?

As you might have noticed I used a lot of images that I could find on Google. I do NOT own any of these images and I'm sorry that I can't credit them.

Anyway, this took some time since I got all emerged in my research especially the teeth part n__n fascinating stuff....
If there's anything I didn't bring up or if anything was incorrect or confusing, misunderstood etc please write it in the comments or send me a private note!

Also, remember to go to my group: dcp-dragoncyclopedia.deviantar… and become a watcher so you won't miss out the upcoming advanced dragon artwork, hand-picked to help you with drawing dragons and dragon accessories stuff :3 I will be posting my dragon tutorials there as well!

Thank you all! Love you guys!!! <3 <3

this is an awesome tutorial, thanks for doing it! 

One thing: you say that teeth aren't "evenly placed next to each other or have even shapes"-- you should look at dolphin teeth.

Anyway, that was more to spread info than a criticism, I love your tutorials

Sorry, I won't be making more tutorials right now as I'm currently working on my comic and other personal stuff :/

I'm also not sure what exactly you're asking me of but... I do have 3 seperate tutorials about scales, fur and feathers but something like colors is entirely up to yourself :)

oh thanks i saw the fur one after i posted the comment. i will have to look for the other two.
what i meant about the colors is that i know some animals have certian colors/paterns to keep predators away, blend in to their surrondings, to attract mates, and stuff like that so i was kindove just wondering what certian paterns and colors i should use-if it matters

Oh, I see ^w^
I guess, for the colors it depends on the animal/dragon you're designing and what it's surroundings and diet should be.
say if you're designing a predator it'll make sense that it has a camoflage like a tiger or leopard to be able to sneak up on the pray.

The best thing you can do is to study real animals and look at how their coats benefits their survival in the wild.

Excellent quality, just likje the last ones!

I'm a little sad there are no floppy or goat like ears, but it isn't hard to use the tools you gave us to work it out!

My Maerik has long floppy goat ears XD

I got excited about the tongues!
