Wings of Fire: Icewing character studies by Iron-Zing Wings of Fire: Icewing character studies by Iron-Zing
Got bored the other day and decided to do a bit of a drawing challenge for myself. I drew 9 Icewing heads, but I made each of them unique by varying things such as muzzle length and width, the angle the horns are at, the direction of the cheek and eyebrow spines, and also the number and size of the spikes on their necks.

I've seen a lot of Wings of Fire art on DA depicting characters of the same species, but most of the time they all have the exact same face. I wanted to challenge myself to make them all look different from each other, but still look like Icewings.

I may color this eventually and try giving them all unique color combos too.
Also I really love the designs I gave Narwhal and Tundra. I might haveta draw them more :D

EDIT: I forgot Lynx's cute freckles gdi

Takes a lot of skill to make Icewing facial structures look different. Great job!

I'm absolutely in awe. The way you made every character look unique is something that I've struggled to do, and you make it look so flawless ^^. I'm so inspired by you :D

My struggle ;u; :

Awww thank you!

It takes practice, but you can do it :D Just start by varying stuff like the thickness and length of the snouts. Or the angle the horns point at. Stuff like that can really make characters stand out from one another

Those look like great starts! Keep it up :D

It's a very nice idea to draw them with different face shapes! :XD: Just like humans, dragons should have different face shapes and not look all the same! :D Nice idea and I love all of their faces! :love: It's difficult to choose a favorite! :XD:

 Yeah, unfortunately, I am one of those artists who always draw dragons with the same face shape :facepalm: I need to practice something like this too someday! =P

Ah thank you very much! :DDDDD

Lol it's not a bad thing honestly, I just think it'd be cool to see more people try this sort of thing. But having a consistent style is also important

You're welcome! :D

Haha, yes indeed! It's not exactly bad to draw in a consistent style, but it's cool to make something different once in a while =P

This is amazing!!!
I tend to make mine all same face -- though I'm trying to practice consistency. xD
Then work my way up into the good stuff and giving my dragons different facessss.
BUT AGAIN THIS IS AWESOME.

:D Aaaaaaaa thanks so much dude! Glad you like it~
Yeah I know what you mean about consistency, it took me awhile to find a consistent style for the WOF dragons. If you look at my very very first fanart of em, the Icewings look WAAAAY different- iron-zing.deviantart.com/art/W…

I'd love to see you try something like this one day tho :3
