Glass Dragon by NakaseArt Glass Dragon by NakaseArt
Played with my old Glass dragon sketch...

I was going for a glass look...but it ended up looking more like silver and gold :\
I think I'm going to go back and redo the colors like Acortesha's colored pic :P

the result maybe not what you wanted but it still looks really great :D
even if its not too much glassy, its still a really great and rawrsome work, and I absolutely love it <3 x3 keep it up, and I'm sure you'll soon get better in glass stuff in pixal arts. x3

Glass is one of the hardest effects to achieve in pixel art. I know, I've tried it! Here's a few suggestions!

One, try making your glass a little more gray and/or white rather than blueish. People look at glass as blue, but it's really more of a gray color when shaded.

Two, make it transparent! Draw a few subtle lines that suggest that you can see THROUGH the dragon and see his tail and other leg. That'll help give it a look of glass.

Overall the shading is really well done. Try making the highlights a little brighter, because glass highlights are almost always white, no matter what. try looking at a piece of glass and you'll see what I mean!

I really like the flural on the back of the dragon. Good coloring and shape, and the shading is well done.

You're really working hard at this and getting much better! XD Keep up the good work.

Well I'm always here if you have any questions. XD I don't claim to be an expert, but I am experienced, so I've probably hit a lot of the bumps you've been hitting.
