The Knight and the Dragon by Panzerfire The Knight and the Dragon by Panzerfire
Requested by :iconmagicswordz:

A brave knight faces head to head against an evil blood-thursty dragon.

If I re-call correctly, I was only asked to draw the picture while the coloring is up to him. Good luck with it mate! :thumbsup:

Anyway, this is the first time since I have drawn a dragon. I did practice a little by doing two early sketches. The first one was (as expected) total crap =P The second 'though was much better and this one was made using what I have learned during the second sketch. I was trying to do a dragon reminicent of those of the film "Reign of Fire" but I have to look at more reference to achieve that.

But at least I've managed to draw a badass and mean looking classic dragon. What ya think of it? Be Honest and any constructive criticism is welcomed AND expected! :D

This was very fun to do as I improvised a lot. I used pretty much no reference at all (Except from looking at some dragon pictures and notice some key elements).


I don't discard coloring this myself, one day in the future. Although coloring this one will be a pretty 'tough one :D But I had more complicated projects in the past.

I hope you guys like this.
See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

Well thanks.

I'm glad you like this.

And to know how to draw better, it's always helpful to look at some reference pictures and then try to put it on paper. Practice makes perfect.

Oh si.
MW3 se ve bien como una pelicula de Michael Bay (Sin minas sexis). Ese me va a entrener bastante cuango juegue el modo de campaña.

Y BF3...... DIOS MIO!!!!! Ese literalmente me hizo estallar los sentidos. El trailer de Thunder Run estaba buenisimo.

Sobre todo si le llegasen a agregar mas participantes a ese modo... imaginate luchar junto a un escuadron entero... al estilo Left 4 Dead, solo que sin zombies .w.


Encima la banda sonora que le han puesto a los trailers. Si ponene eso en los anuncios, no se de lo que son capaces de hacer en pleno juego! *w*

Pffff, no serviria de mucho. La piel de un dragon es lo suficientemente gruesa y dura para absorber las municiones de 5.56mm con muy poca penetración. Un arma en Calibre .50 seria mas util... pero si hay abundancia de munición. ;)

Oh god, that's looks much better than I've ever imagined.

I mean, the encountering angle of drawing is an excellent use you did here, it makes have a better focusing of the tension between them.

You better tell us if this lineart is allow to color by other deviants or not, too.

Panzerfire Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, Magicwordz has received a full sized PSD file of the lineart (And without the Watermark), so he may color it.

I'll consider uploading a full-sized PNG version of the file so that Coloring it, is easier.

BTW, I'm glad you like it. Thanks! :D

Looks good so far, especially the 16th century-styled plate armour, the ornaments remind me the armour worn by Philip II of Spain [link] & [link]

Panzerfire Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahh that's curious.

I used pretty much no reference other than simply looking at some photo of some random armor. Haven't dwelled much into doing an actual armor that as historically accurate.

Then again dragons ain't historically factual so.... :iconimhappyplz:

I'm glad you like this. :D

Holy cow wow, that's one impressive mofo of a dragon :wow:
The scales and teeth in particular are seriously awesome, so crisp and detailed, like the knight's armour: must've taken a while to get them right, and the result is really cool :D

All in all, the only thing I feel like nit-picking at are the wings, they look sort of... too thin and small to make such a bigass beast fly. (But then again, they may be there just for show and for the sake of the rule of cool, so it's not that big a problem |D )

Yeah I too feel the wing could have been bigger. I'll take that into account next time I draw a dragon. :D
