I'm just asking this here so it won't clog the Derpy Bewilderbeast Post, but anyway, I just wanted to ask you if there is a specific pose you want your dragon in, if you want it in the same pose as the reference picture you showed, or if you don't really mind which pose it's in. Since it's your own fanmade dragon I just want to be sure about what pose you want before I start the sketch since the pose can say a lot about a character and show off different details of your dragon.
Okay great! are there any extra details in the feet I should know about since the reference cuts off part of the bottom part, or are the feet like Toothless’s. Also sorry for all the questions, it’s just that because this is your own custom dragon I want to make sure all the details are included (but of course in the derpy version proportions will be off since that’s how the style is😅)
Yeah, the feet are like Toothless’ feet just they have two, wide, flat triangular claws on each foot. Also the spikes on the back are papery and thin and get larger and larger towards the end of the tail. The Deep Flame’s wings do not have spikes for the underside, but just a smooth, curved line.
Hi again DeepFlame3. I was working on the Derpy Deep Flame and am trying my best to draw it in your requested pose while following your description the best I can (considering important details aren't in the reference photos). Here is a picture of the quick sketch I did and want to know if there is anything I should fix considering this is your own custom dragon and my lack of references and possible poses.
This is great thanks. There are a couple of things that may need to be cleared up tho.
One is the head has a separation between light and dark that is just above the eyes, two is that the tail flukes are bigger.
Ok, so I'll make the tail flukes bigger (fyi they will be smaller than your reference in proportion since the dragon is in "derpy proprtions"), and don't worry about the color difference I never include "color lines" in my sketches, but I always account for them when finishing it digitally
