Yanartas (dragon picture 3) by jokov Yanartas (dragon picture 3) by jokov
pixelart
this one is more for fun than serious work
I've tried few different techniques and changed theme a bit ;P
unfinished and unpolished as always
some refs used for dragons and lanscape*

Atari ST standard lowres
320x200 
15 colors used
from 512 colors palette


Yanartas - flaming rocks in Turkey
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yanarta%…
perfect place for dragons nest ;)

picture from checkpoint demo with the same title - 'Yanartas' (3 place at Silly Venture 2014 demoscene event in Poland)
demo final will be released before Christmas. (I hope ;)

comments always welcome! 
:)

Vertebrates are tetrapods, not hexapods.
The wings are nothing else than transformed upper limbs due to evolution, not an additional 3rd pair of limbs.
So, either one or another.

będziesz miała sporo roboty uświadamiając wszystkich niedouczonych rysowników FANTASY - choćby tu, na devianarcie ;)
(w dyskusję na temat ewolucji SMOKÓW się na razie nie wdaję, ale dzięki za komentarz :) )

yes - composition, pose
I really like that one (dignity of the dragon! - mine is more cartoonish, "friendly" ;) )
it was one of references for sketches on paper I made before pixelling in grafx2

The dragon is well done but I fell the rest of the piece if letting it down. I'd love to see this finished.

palette of this machine is very limited - 16 colours max (only 512 colours to choose from) this is main problem with contrast and matching colors sets
Maybe I will make new version but for different machine with less restrictions
