Beautiful 10 Minute Timelapse Of Artist Painting A Realistic Dragon

February 28, 2018

This is a ten minute timelapse video of an artist painting a realistic dragon head. Not to brag or anything, but all the work done prior to the ten second mark (seen above, top) looks about on my level. "It's a blobby outline of a dragon head." Stop embarrassing me, I just said I wasn't trying to brag! Am I red in the face now? "Only because I just watched you put blush on." Kiss me you fool.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to The Great Grant, who agrees the key to painting a realistic dragon portrait is finding a dragon willing to sit still long enough.

  • Thank you for the kind post about my art! :)

    The people commenting here are uneducated idiots. This guy is PHENOMENALLY talented, and not one of you could possibly draw as well as he does. Why does the Internet bring out the worst in people all the time?

  • So...what DOES a "realistic" looking image of a completely fictional creature look like? Just curious....

  • Geekologie

    like this

  • I see what you did there...

  • im1dermike

    480p? Really???

  • Geekologie

    there i found an HD one

  • VTPete

    Clearly he has talent and I love the result. However, this can be done with the help of an app, including creating the time-lapsed video... https://itunes.apple.com/us...

    Lack of gums was an odd choice, but great rendering skills, especially using traditional paints. (Agree about the basic structure underneath, but IMO the rendering still saves the overall piece)

  • I'm guessing it's because it's partly based on a crocodile. They don't really have any gums either.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Yeah that's what I was assuming too. Still an odd choice imo.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    i expected at least this amount of arm hair from someone who can draw dragons so well

  • Classy Niggur

    It has a lot of detail, but his basics are all trash. Sprinkled shit, essentially.
    I think he could be good if he worked on his basic anatomy, maybe boxed out a less ridiculous looking face before dumping however long on a flawed foundation.

    You misunderstand.
    I cannot replicate the details he has, in any way shape or form. I'm a hobbyist artist, I draw maybe 3 hours a week, tops. My fundamental form destroys his.

    The problem isn't that he doesn't have talent, his talent just isn't in building anatomical structures, it's nitty gritty details, so drawing organics with heavy focus on anatomy is a pretty big blunder, I think his efforts would be put to far better use drawing sci-fi stuff. Mechs, ships, universes, etc.

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    Seriously though. Visit a museum and inspect the bones at least. You can only have an idea on how the dragon would hold its self after studying the underlying structure.

  • SmokeThatSkinWagon

    Was going to say much of the same thing. Lots of hard work on the details and no attention to basic structure or composition.

    Seems like he'd fit in great on an art team as 'the detail guy'.

  • WhiteEagle2

    SmokeThatSkinWagon, props for using constructive feedback unlike Classy Niggur.

    I mainly wanted to say this because both your names are ridiculous. haha
