Sunfall Inferno by kiki-doodle Sunfall Inferno by kiki-doodle
I re discovered an old thumbnail I drew YEARS ago, and thought that it looked like fun, so I took a day break from commissions to paint this.

Kanakah are the fire dragons of Tisitan.  They are very long lived, and can grow to huge sizes.  Thankfully, they rarely cross into the mainland, due to their home being a volcanic chain of islands far off the coast.  That said, sometimes one or two will find their way over, and thus bring destruction with them.

Here a sitharian priestess, the dragon-people of Tisitan, defends her home and her people against a particularly vicious kanakah.

I love the textures, and the colors! The textures really help the overall feel of the picture, along the well chosen color pallet. The brightness of the sun set and fire contrast with the dark rocks, but not to much, which I love. The only thing I would say is the dragons pose is only a TAD awkward. I get how he's sitting, its a nice pose. But his neck and wing look a bit off to me. Also, it took me a while to get that there was water back there. Since I don't know about the fandom or anything that this is suppose to be, or if it just isn't in one, I don't know if the body of water was optional or not. I think it would've looked a bit better without it, but if that's like a set scene that doesn't only exist in this picture, I understand. The antnomy is spot on, and I love the concept. Over all well done! :D Llama worthy.

very cool~ i love the fire texture and the composition! The suggestion of scales is a great direction to go as well. What program do you use?

This was done in 100% Photoshop CS6, but honestly the version matters little.
It's often way better to hint at detail rather than overly showcase it everywhere, as the eye is great at filling in details, and it prevents the piece from becoming too busy.

Thanks for your comment!

Thank you!  The motion was one of the things I had to design, considering my poses were so STIFF in the 7-year-old thumbnail x3

Wow I love the colouring in this!  The lighting is so atmospheric, and I love the little details like the semi-transparent look of the dragon wings.  Very cool piece. =)

You have one extra her in the last sentence. It should probably read "defends her home and her people". ;)
