Reptile Cynrik by TargonRedDragon Reptile Cynrik by TargonRedDragon
Alternate title is "Reptile TargonRedDragon Version" or "Reptile -2008 remake-"

This is a remake of "Reptile Kevindragon Version" since December 14, 2008 ---> targonreddragon.deviantart.com…
Also it's a birthday giftart for :iconreptilecynrik: featuring his principle heroic character Reptile Cynrik, in scaly style. :D This is dedicated to him for generously helping me with my art for 5 years. I thank you for your guidance and constructive critiques everytime I draw new artworks. ^^

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, PATRICK :3

I have a lots of artworks on FurAffinity not yet uploaded on DeviantArt (some are exclusive to FA XP) I will submit the next time XD 

Oh wait, like *Letdragon said...the longer I view this, the more sense I can see he looks giant because of grass and background XP

Thanks to :iconrazenhashikado: for corrections (not too buff Reptile, eyebrow, right arm and chin) ;)

EDIT:Thanks to :devbahamut-225: for reminding me, his left arm was out of proportion, even I saw it at first. I redrew it to be fixed.

Oh, and the eye is much better than your previous "button eyes"!  :-)
Finally the eye looks more like a part of the body, yes... and it's not just a texture!!!

And here is your submission now:

Oooooh, really? XD Thanks, finally :)
Lol, button eyes. XP I didn't see the difference with real eyes, but I can see it needs a bit of shading between eyelids

Well, first of all thank you very much for the nice gift! This was rather unexpected. ^_^
Cool, THANKS for drawing Reptile!
:3
:hug:

And... who would I be if I didn't write a critique, eh?
;-)


POSITIVE ASPECTS

I do very much like the background, which doesn't show any fill patterns or digital lazy stuff. Hooray for all the work and details you've put into this.
I like the grass, painted by hand and the fluffy clouds.
The curved skyline gives us an interesting impression of a dynamic world or environment.
The skin colour and texture of Reptile is quite cool and you've finally used your scaled style again. ^_^
Reptile is indeed a bit bulky... like a tank!
I guess, you've drawn too many beefy buff guys lately... XD
Reptile is strong, yes... but not this "compact", hehehehehe.
Never mind, it's your version and interpretation of him.
So... alright.
;-)


NEGATIVE ASPECTS

Well, you know me... though I highly appreciate your gift, I have to name a few flaws, so you can learn from your mistakes. ^_^

First of all, his (real) left arm is not correctly attached to his shoulder. In fact, there isn't enough chest muscle to support the left arm and biceps. It looks as if his left arm had been ripped off once and attached poorly afterwards. You really need to work on shoulders and biceps positions again, Kevin. This is a reoccurring flaw!

The scales are cool, but they don't always follow the shape of the muscle properly. Just consider: a shoulder or leg has a round shape and the pattern has to follow the shape! :)

Last point: facial expression.
Sadly, there isn't any emotion here. Reptile just walks through life... with no clear thought or life in his eyes.
He seems to sleep... for what is worth, he has no emotion in this stone cold expression.
That's rather sad, because he's such an emotional guy!
;-)
Try to work on that. ^_^

So... I hope that you and the other watchers will understand that I'm really grateful and happy for the nice gift - despite of my criticism. :-)
You still wanna improve, don't ya?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!
^__________^
I'll put it on my homepage later.

I'm glad you love my artwork, although there are flaws, still :D
When I have time I can fix his left arm since it's important for me to correct other people's characters ;P

Thank you for your comment and critique! and merry Christmas :)

If you call 8 pack abs average than clearly I haven't been working out hard enough, even though I can easily go around all day wearing an eight pound weight vest...I know I will buy a heavier one.

Well his left arm almost looks like it's dislocated, but the shading seems to be correct.  And the rest of him looks about right to me as well.  

Btw Reppy, your presents are at the end of that road, not too far to walk now.  ^_^

yeah, i saw it and I disliked his left arm in bad shape, so I decided to redraw his shoulder, bicep, and tricep again XP
Thank you very much :huggle: ^^

I hope Patrick notices your good message for him ;)
