I sat on the subway this morning and I felt a great inclination to draw. So I did. I've been thinking about participating in a dA contest so I kept that in mind as I drew. It wasn't crowded in transit but I noticed quite a few people were watching, heh.
I learned that my Day Sign in the Chinese Horoscope is a male Green Dragon, or a Wood Dragon. I decided to draw both.
This is Veil. Notice that in Veil's claws is a Pearl of Golden Amber, which matches his wood-based appearance.
I found it extremely hard to draw him, mainly because the texture was driving me up the wall! But when I finished it (yes I did my first speed drawing) I was very satisfied with the result.
I think my dragons are improving.[link]
I listened to Dreammaker by Thomas Bergersen (and a little bit of Dragons from Caravan Palace) to give me the strength I needed to finish this beast!)
Media: Polychromos Coloured Pencils on 8.5"x11" gourmet "Blue Granite" paper.
Time: One. Whole. Day.
Edit: I decided to fix this up a few notches. While a white background worked, I think this free texture by [link]
Darkwood67 works as well. It helped me clean up the white background which was previously filled with pixels.
