The Triumphant by WesTalbott The Triumphant by WesTalbott
The 2nd of my 2 part dragon slayer series

*Edit

so I completely forgot to give a shout out to my friend :icondanmaynard: for helping me a ton with resolving some issues with this. It always helps to have fellow artists around to get second opinions.

Beautiful colours and an equally beautiful composition. Especially appreciate the feeling of

I really, really like the white-outline technique. Also, the way the wings become part of the landscape and threaten it at the same time is inspired!

this is super awesome man! by the way, I can never seem to make such clean lines inside Photoshop. Did you by any chance use illustrator for this? cause this is a pretty precise piece.

:iconwestalbott:
WesTalbott Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Professional Artist
I do use illustrators for the lines and fills and then paint them in photoshop. Although you can use the pen tool in photoshop and then stroke the path for basically the same effect.
