I can always count on you, Gantic. And I actually do have some art to post for once, I just don't have it have it. It's the downside to the traditional media.
Will scan when I get the chance.

Nice work, very vibrant colors.

Thanks, I think?

Thanks... I think?

Anyway, I bring you art.
I managed to get both the scanner and my parents' computer working at the same time, so here it is:

An idea for the current myth-creature contest on dA. Sadly, the paper kinda ran out, so that will have to be fixed if I can get to a tablet-enhanced computer before the deadline runs out.
I am also aware of the proportion/perspective issue, but paper isn't good for the usual mark-and-move things a computer can do.
Little picture is what I would probably consider some kind of colouring, but we will see.

Another version, because cute sells.

nice drawings. did you draw these yourself? how long did it take you? they are good. i like the dragon.

Is your final draft going to be paper and pencil or are you going use a graphics editor? Either way you're going digital. /pun

Your always(or so it seems to me) asking about tablets. It makes me sad because I cannot help you or if I did you would end up with one that is a complete piece of sh*t and you would have to hate me. So I cannot help you. But why not just use the mouse? Then you would not have to eat noodles at all.

Is the top one the horse with 1 leg but still has it's head? If not just stop reading. If so keep reading.

Umm..which should I be looking at, the one with color or the one without. I am going to do the color one I guess. The glowing eyes are cool, but they seem to be glowing too much. Try lowering the opacity at least around the edges of the glow. I assume(I am doing a lot of assuming) that this is the aketch and not the final version. Make sure to clean it up. The horse seems to skinny to me. I think you are trying to go skinny but maybe add a little fat behind the rib cage. Everything else looks good to me.

Well, this time it is tablet PCs, not tablets. I don't tend to ask about graphic tablets, rather, I am often there answering threads about them, but tablet PCs aren't something I know a whole lot about, since they are somewhat expensive and I have no money.
Also, I have come to conclude the computer mouse doesn't do well for digital sketching, since it is quite a different movement and idea from the tablet or the pencil. And I tend to leave my cordless at home when I go travelling. And they kinda need a surface to actually work, which means I just as well could have installed my graphic tablet properly on my laptop, and brought it along.

Either way, I don't think I can afford a tablet PC or an iPad anyway, so no digital sketching for me.

Yes, it was indeed the legless-yet-head-wielding horse I was talking about.
I was generally more interested in what needed to be changed (besides the wonky perspective) in the sketch, rather than any crits on the colour, since it was done on my laptop with my touchpad. It was the just the general feel of the colours, rather than something concrete.
As for the pointers, yes, I am going for skinny. What I have been portraying is the Helhest, the hell horse, which is a bringer of doom and destruction in Denmark, much like other zombie animals tend to be. If it's seen, it spells the death of the observer, and you could hear it walking through the streets at night, picking up the soul of the dead person. It usually misses a leg, sometimes the head (hence the chibi sketch), and if its head is there, the eyes glows, because nothing is as scary as glowing eyes.
Besides that, it is pretty much a broken down, old and ugly horse, skinny beyond the lethal and pretty much as zombie as it gets. It isn't active in its death causing like the kelpie is, and it is, as far as I know, not possible to catch it and use it as a steed, since, well, looking at it means you are going to die over night.

So, that's the Helhest for you. I think I might have made it a bit healthier looking in the sketch than it ought to be, but I didn't have any references around when I drew it, otherwise it would have looked more like the skinned skeleton it really is.
so, a bit more information on that, and I should probably try to redraw it a bit better, if I want to try out for the myth creature contest...

I Googled Helhest and the pictures I saw mostly had him looking like a normal horse but I would go skinny if that is what it is supposed to be.

Make the ribs more visible and it will look skinnier.
