Nice! :)

I am doing animations in my spare time, like this:

And many, many more on my DeviantArt page

I've always been curious about the making of these. Do you do them in a special program dedicated to such things, or you draw frame by frame and just use a GIF maker? Also, since you work with those small animations, I reckon you know some stuff about animation programs, no? I always wanted to do a long (5 min or so) animation, what software should I use? PS I don't wanna go for flash,the image turns out so...cartoonish. That's not suitable for the kind of thing I wanna do.

More or less I do draw frame by frame ;)

To stress out, 5 min long animation will require about 2-3 months of work. And I really don't recommend starting animating with such huge project, as it's likely fail because of lack of experience... If you really want to try, then the only reasonable answer is the one you ruled out, Flash. Oh well, if you're good at drawing you can also try Adobe After Effects and its puppet tool :)

been a while.

here's an unfinished piece with a different take on Werokh encounter. This time, no Arokh. It's bound to end differently this time, isn't it?

Most probably I will never finish it. I just can't really find the incentive to do art for a dead game, since it gives nothing in return. If I somehow decide to come back on it, i'll post it here.

Good artwork - yep that'll end badly for Rynn. Have you done any more Drakan artwork?

The one I posted few years back in this topic, on the user name Cookie. I forgot that account's credentials. But I do have more dragon drawings, just not Drakan. Ill post them here



Edit:
I'm currently working on this but it's early in progress so it is subject to change. Alot.

I like the artwork - keep them coming. As for your old account I could reset the password for you - as long as you haven't changed your email address associated with it then it will be fine.

I don't really mind. It's the same thing to me whether I post from this one or the other. I'll keep posting if I have more related stuff. I'll probably make a comic book for my diploma work at uni and it may or may not imply drawing more dragons.
