Uh-oh....Say it ain't so!... hehehe I told ya all I was goin' back into the archives. lol

Who remembers Dragon's Lair? This is Dirk the Daring for those who aren't familiar with the character. The game and the cartoon came out in ghe 80's.

This is a work in progress.

Yeah Dragon's Lair I never unstood how to play it as a kid it was a challenge since you couldn't just beat the shit out of everything, but they made a second vertion of the first game in 3D, but that just doesn't feel like it's in the same spirit~!

wow that's really cool! I'm actually studying to become an animator and thought your stuff was really cool. What got you so interested in this style of art? Sorry I'm overly nosy and curious. Anyway, I love the pose you chose and the colors are just great. Cheers!

It always amazes me that a drawing with only a few colour tones and lines can look so great, and you portray the character excellently :D

Well, responding to the title of this awesome pic, I'd put a dragon and the princess and the castle and make it look suitable as a poster instead of just a conceptual art. Just thought I'd share that with you.

Looking really forward to the finished version :)

WAH! I love Dirk! Too bad his games these days aren't very good. But man, did I ever have a love affair with his old PC games.... and that blonde chick he's always rescuing too! ;)

Awesome! I like the Don Bluth animation so much in that game (as well as his other early stuff like Secrect Of Nimh) that I bought a DVD with all the Dragon's Lair futage. Used to play it everytime I went to the local grocery store 2 (Good Lord) decades ago!

This is a wonderful piece! Great pose and you've captured the attitude and colors perfectly! Love it!

Can't wait until it's finished! This will be a definite Fav!

Quality stuff, man. As always. I wasn't around for the game, but I think I have a toy of the giant green dragon, but I forgot its name. Anyway, I'm sure this will be even cooler when finished, since it's already off to a great start. Good luck.

I love the way you tackle old school charracters. Excellent cell style rendering as usual and I really like the way the minimalist background works on this one...My only complaint is that possibly the image could be cropped so that the figure isn't so dead center?
