Yeah, I am. :) Really.

Oh yeah, call me Daiger. I'm an avid fan of boxing dragons (and other anthropomorphic reptiles), and while this comic certainly doesn't have those, I was still drawn in by the surrealism of the art and storyline. In fact, it's somewhat reminiscient to Peanuts - just throw in Vincent Worthless for Charlie Brown and Spiky for Snoopy and you got one realistic rendition of Peanuts in a fantasy sense.

But that's just me.

Here's a pic to show you what I mean by boxing dragons/lizards:

Hi and welcome to the forums. Great that you decided to join us here.

I like dynamics in your picture. It's not easy to draw forceful action like that.

Anyway, go and vote in all the polls if you haven't yet, enjoy your stay, and .. whatever else it was that I always say in these introduction threads ;)

Heh, I had to go and doodle a picture of Vincent against a dragon in a boxing match. Not entirely happy about the results, so it's in the doodles folder and won't get into fan-art page unless I manage to finish it.

Hi.

Anthro dragons are great.

Negation: Thanks for the welcome and enjoying the pic! Yeah, that one took me a while to get right. ^^; And that's quite a good doodle there. The dragon's head looks familiar though - you watched a show called Dragon Booster?

Ak-Ryuu: Hi! You got a really great comic here. :) Would Peanuts be one of your main influences, or was it something else entirely? Because I could imagine Snoopy/Woddstick talking like Spiky. :P

Ah, sure! :) Heh, boxing Spiky would be a sight to see. And I'll check out those polls as well.

DesertNaiad and Blackbuster: Heya. :)

Bokaashmi: Hi! Thanks for enjoying the pic! Where did you get your name from? I misspelled it as "Bookashim". ^^;

Kriegel: Most definitely. :D

Thanks for the compliment ;) No, I don't think I have ever watched Dragon Booster. The head of the dragon was just result of couple random lines, cleaned up and connected. It sort of reminds me of some dragon in one of the Final Fantasies (but I can't remember which one).

I have certainly read a lot of Peanuts as a kid, but I have never considered it a main influence (or an influence at all) ... it could surely be on a subconscious level though. And I always loved Woodstock, and yeah, Spiky is like him or Snoopy in some ways :)

Hmm, influences. I'd really have to think about that a lot before I can come up with a satisfactory answer. Most likely, my main influence is Sluggy Freelance ...

Negation: Ah, I see and yeah, it sort of does. Been a while since I played a Final Fantasy though. How long have you been drawing?

Ak-Ryuu: Ah, Sluggy Freelance? *checks out first few strips* Hmm, I see what you mean. :P I guess I was reminded of Peanuts because of the simplistic art style and such.

Hello and welcome.

I never thought I'd see "boxing" and "dragons" typed together, but the drawing did it justice.

It depends how you count it. I have been drawing most of my life, but giving it a bit more effort for 5 or so years. If you like, you could have a look at oktaeder.net for other things I have drawn. Like the coloured version of the Boxing dragon ;P
