Vraiken by EternaLegend Vraiken by EternaLegend
Watercolours on A4 Arches (300gsm) watercolour paper.


________

A personal concept painting of a dragon.

I used a new type of watercolour paper that creates some lovely natural textures when the paint dries, almost like having salt/crystals on the paper already.

It looks like a dragon combo of Ghirahim and Fi! Well done, as always! So this is used with paint, not digital art? Dude, I want your painting skills!

Yeah I'm starting to prefer watercolors more than acryllics. It's cheaper to buy (by A LOT) and I love the blending effects that it has that acryllics don't.

Wow, amazing picture as always. This dragon looks as though it would breath ice, or freezing air, at least, instead of fire. I love how it fades away in some areas into the whiteness, and yet some parts of it are so bold and intense with the deep blue (which reminds me of the blue of ages old ice in the Arctic.) It's coloration and that fade seem like they could be excellent camouflage in snowy environments. The designs and intricacies of the dragon's skin/scales make it particularly strange and unique. especially with the shapes on the ends of the wings (they looks almost like sculptures or ironwork than wing tips.) The texturing is also magnificent, having a very fine grain look to it.

I can just imagine this dragon on a game... flying, or walking, or resting around, difficult to attack, and even more difficult to fight. It's a very interesting but fearsome-looking creature.

Oh, wow, there were so many spelling and grammatical mistakes in that last comment of mine... xD I guess I was just too mesmerised by the picture to get anything right.

But you're welcome, as always. :hug:

This is gorgeous - love how you've faded out the colours on the tail, it makes the perspective really dramatic and also looks very mystical :) I'm a huge fan of Arches paper, it really does create amazing textures!

I'm... uh, I'm another one of those people who first thought it was something out of Skyward Sword. XD (Haven't beaten the game yet so didn't know what to expect. ^^;)

Great job though -- love the colors! :heart:
