Say hello to my new character, Kasemar, freshly speedpainted this morning (Desember 2). I made an attempt at cel-shading... which didn't turn out very well, so I made an attempt at soft/hard-shading, which I like very well.

Kasemar is a sea-dragon, by the way, and he was originally named Albert, but he wasn't nearly as Alberty enough as he was Kasemary, so his name is now Kasemar. I think my digital skills, especially when it comes to inking, are improving! Critics are most welcome!

Beautiful character, I love sea-dragons and serpents! The colouring style is great, yes, looks very cool and fresh ^^
I just wonder, though, isn’t it a bit impractical to have ears like that when you live under water? Anyway, I think you could make a few ear-studies and look at pictures of ears from different animals, humans too, to better understand how they actually look and work.
And else...Those horns should might either get more texture or look more shiney, I’m not sure of what kind of horns they are...
Else, I’d like to see you experiment more on the area around the eyes, like eyelids and such, and forms on dragon heads. Your style is great, you know, but experimenting and trying out new stuff can make you even better 12 It’s one of the best ways of learning.
Anyway, great work!

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Well, yeah, ears might be impractical, but I’m sure I can find a good reason for him to have them x3
Duh, I oughta make more studies, but I hardly have time to draw at all x3 I have experimented a lot with various head-styles and such, but this was one that felt right for him. I’m too lazy to do anything with those horns, but thanks for critizing anyways, Vilde!"

aawh, I like the shape of his head! The ear and horn looks nice and the colors of him are just perfect for a sea-dragon. His desing is great other wise too, but I wonder if he should have a bit bigger ’back fins’ (I’m not so sure what they are really called, but I mean those green things on his head and neck which fish also usually have 14 )

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Thanks^^ Yeah, I’ve gotten around and redesigned him, finally. But thanks for pointing out!"

This looks pretty good! Well like what the other two have noticed about the ears and horns,I share my statements with them. I haven’t heard sea dragons having human-like ears but quite a daring attempt to add them. I must say I’m impressed! The shape of its horns can be altered to other shapes, for example like those of a chinese dragon,yeah? So don’t be afraid to explore other possibilities of drawing out its features, but, with more practice, u’ll be able to produce ur own style of dragons. Overall, I’ll give it a 8/10.

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "It’s two years old =P I like to believe I have improved since that."
