Gold Dragon in Flight by 8TwilightAngel8 Gold Dragon in Flight by 8TwilightAngel8
One of my other extended drawing projects. I own a lot of the Dungeons and Dragons books, and I saw picture of a Gold Dragon in flight. I fell in love with it and decided to try it out for some practice.

The hardest part was the face. The paper is fairly light and soft so i could not press very hard and i got confused with the lines when i went over it again. The tail was also a very big pain (especially during the coloring). The details were hard to pick out since the reference was so small in the book. I had a big headache once i drew the rough outline :(

Nonetheless, I had never drawn a gold dragon prior to this so it was a very fun learning experience.

Used Prismas, Premier and Verithin.

this is so good I wonder it it was traced.
but that would be a stupid assumption, as this is clearly a pencil work, and I don't think it's possible to trace colors.

nope i don't trace. its a bad habit to get, and you don't learn anything by doing an overlay :P
for this, i first did a light sketch with a 2H pencil and then went back with a standard HB to bring out the lines i wanted (and then i erased the sketchy 2H lines with a kneadable eraser which was not fun. i've never used this paper again for a reason lol).

It is priced arrive you very much. The atmosphere of the color pure gold of a summer sun with a little green vegetation blue fresh is entire. The form of the wings and the tail is raked a little like a wave or garland or like a Manta. The delicate shading in blue green mixture at the underside makes a discreet contrast. The highlight is but the lights brightness on the wing. And that brings the radiating atmosphere of Atzteken gold.
