Who is protecting whom? by Philbear

The image is quite likeable and relatively nice, although there is still a lot of room for improvement. First, vision. The "just me and...

Balance of Power by Chromamancer

This image simply blew my mind, once I saw it in fullview. On one side, we have dragons, wyverns, - are that three serpents or a hydra?...

Wyvern outpost by xTernal7
Wyvern outpost
As unbelievable as it sounds, there's still some races that — unlike humans — manage to approximately get along with other creatures living in the wilderness. Of course such examples are rare and few in between, which is why the more curious among the men try to make friends among the local tribes and build small outposts nearby to satisfy their curiosity.

This is the Wyvern outpost, where men go to study one of the few kinds of mountain wyverns.


That's as far as fantasy paragraph of the day goes. Took about ~10 hours (eyeball estimate). Made in GIMP, using tablet and custom brushes.

I finally managed to make something that's worth uploading. 6-7 hours of work (1 hour was probably spent on dirty texture and sky gradient). Rocks are surprisingly tough to draw in a way that doesn't look like utter shit, the pic as a whole seems to be a bit dark when viewed on bright backgrounds but I'm generally pleased with how this turned out.

Because I'm just that lazy with titles and because I have little idea about what that thing is.
Of course we're talking about my art. Time to reflect what was the best and move on. So, without further ado...

Digital Art
I think I've always went with digital art first and photography second. I don't see why this year should be any different.

I've been mainly drawing smaller pieces that didn't take too long to make. There were only two that took longer than five hours. One was good and the other was meh — though some simple and quick paintings actually turned out decent.

The first 'Most faves' and 'most views' awards go to The Village on the Top of the World:
The Village on the top of the world by xTernal7
670 views, 53 favs.

I really like it and if I had to pick the thing I'm most proud of in my 2014 digital gallery, this would be the piece. The public seems to agree as the view/fav ratio seems quite healthy.

The second piece worth of mention is The Cottage:
The Cottage [Speedpaint] by xTernal7
I just generally like this one. I like how it turned out.


Third piece that needs a mention is Zver.
Zver by xTernal7
For some reason, I seem to fall for stuff that looks like digital watercolor, the dragon isn't entirely awful as far as anatomy goes (as long as we ignore the creature's front left leg - the one with claws visible. That one just doesn't make sense). I probably shouldn't have done the underneck/belly scales, though. With 234 views and 21 favs, the view/fav ratio isn't exactly terrible either.


I've also managed to have one dark and decent piece that actually looks good (unless it's viewed on a monitor with shit gamma issues. Happens a lot on cheap laptops). That was Jama:
Jama by xTernal7
Note though: It's dark. This piece was also submitted to only one group, so it didn't get much exposure.


My photography has actually become mildly better this year, though I was still mostly taking pictures of bees. That, and family gatherings. I managed to take some decent shots there, though I'm not sharing these on here for obvious reasons.

The second 'most faves' award goes, along to (B)icicle:
(B)icicle by xTernal7
53 favs, 355 views. I think I could say this is the most popular piece I've made in 2014 (regardless of the medium). This piece also gets the 'most comments' award (which it got with 8 comments). This piece has also made it to the 'Popular' stream on 500px.

And it's also my favourite photo. Other photos that I also deem better than the rest I've made in 2014 are:

Traditional art
This was a sad year for traditional art.

Everything else

It seems I uploaded one deviation every 12.5 days. This means I've been less active than in 2013 (one every 9.4 days). Usually on a Tuesday (8 pieces or 28% of this year's submissions). In 2013, my favourite uploading day was apparently saturday. I was most active in September (5 uploaded). Like in 2013, my favourite gallery was photography (this time with 14 deviations, one less than year before). My favourite category this year was (digital) paintings/landscapes with 7 pieces.

The rest of statistics:
Comments per deviation: 1.37 (+0.01)
Favourites per deviation: 9 (+1)
Views per deviation: 113 (+22)
Comments per day: 0.1 (-0.04)
Favourites per day: 0.73 (-0.16)
Deviation views per day: 9.03 (-0.6)

Sorry for not being too entertaining today.

dragons are very interesting. have you looked into the history of them? they are found in roman times and also very widely known to be in cultures like china. in china they see the dragon as a wise being that represents a bird and a snake the sky and the earth i believe.
xTernal7 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, and I do have pretty much lore on that.

they are found in roman times and also very widely known to be in cultures like china.
Romans had drakons, like Greeks did. Those aren't dragons, but serpents which live in the sea. Leviathans are similar, but they can breathe fire.

Eastern "dragons" are dragons only due to some translation failure as they come way closer to olms than actual dragons. Dragons ought not to be mistaken by wyverns and drakes either — wyverns have a pair of wings and a pair of legs, while drakes have only 4 legs — as opposed to dragons which are creatures with 4 legs and a pair of wings.

That concludes the lizard part of the "local reptilia", while serpents are also represented by wyrms (no legs) and lindworms (only a pair of legs).
