Dragon Wallpaper by rubendevela Dragon Wallpaper by rubendevela
Completely digital, no scanning at all... I was just playing with my (then new) digital pen, and I accidentally finished this picture, with funky use of textures (no visible tiling!!!). This is one of the reddest pics I've ever done (and there are quite a few of them).. By the way, this guy is a 12' tall anthropomorphic dragon with pyrokinesis, not any normal dragon (if those things exist).

I remember having this as my wallpaper years ago, when I was very young. It was one of my favourite wallpapers at the time, and now, when I accidentally found it again, so many memories of my childhood came back... ^^

Um, this is well drawn, great details, etc. I'm stunned! Although I suck and everything looks amazing, but this... this is too good for words. 8D
I really like the background, too!

Great Dragon of Fire! I am going to use this in my Banger Universe as Guy (Of Tales of The Abyss)'s Pet Dragon.
Glitchmaister159 Featured By Owner May 10, 2010
Aww.. Lovely, to sad it's not 1600x1200 :o I would've used at desktop! :D
rubendevela Featured By Owner May 14, 2010
:) It's really old, before higher res monitors were around
Glitchmaister159 Featured By Owner May 14, 2010
Ah, I see :) Still a good art though!
Kurogane05 Featured By Owner May 5, 2010
lol i was looking at the background of this guy's computer and thought to myself, "hey, that looks awfully familiar..." then i looked through your work and lo and behold, it is indeed this one! check it out for yourself! [link]
rubendevela Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
Wow! I wonder if he just likes red dragons or found it through my airsoft photo. Or maybe I gave him the pic, years ago?
skateboarder11 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2010
I've had this favorited for years, but I'm just now commenting on it. ...Go me.

This is, as everyone else has put it, quite amazing. Perhaps it's just me, but seeing the time this was completed (2000, if I'm not mistaken?) just adds to the wonder of the picture - I wasn't aware Photoshop was quite as advanced then, but hell, I'm no artist.

I've always interpreted what he was doing with his hand as some sort of "motion" to actually start the fire in the background.

It's a shame the image is so small for a wallpaper - but I can't fault you for that, given its age (1024x768 was a lot back then, if I remember correctly.). Ah well.

All in all, a wonderful piece. I'm surprised it hasn't been DDed yet.
rubendevela Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2010
Yeah, this brings me back. :)
I made this before I has a scanner or a wacom tablet. The lines were made with the insane curve tool in MS paint!
skateboarder11 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2010
...Damn, seriously?

That makes it even MORE incredible, honestly. Further proof that great things can be done with MSPaint.
Jaceb3 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2010
OMG! Great details! 10 stars!
Schazmen Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2010
Dude, this is one of the coolest dragons I've ever seen!
LexusStorm Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Yeah... this is probably one of the few dragons that I've come across on DA that I've actually saved onto my computer.

And I've decided to use it on several furry sites as my fursona. I hope that's OK.

Now, I'm just going to browse your gallery, and see if I like your other works ^^
