Happy New Year!!! I've started a challenge with Yuuza to make one or more speed paints every day until we make 100. This is my 4th that I liked so much I decided to finish it up and submit it C:

It's an albino dragon, the white pink color scheme has been on my mind for a while now and I think I may still draw a few whiteies :squee: For albino purists: the blue is not pigment, it's a stone/mineral/gem/whatever formation

Nice detail with the blue gemstones. They really tie the piece together.

Eh, shes a good artist but knowing of biology i'd say there is the simpler explaination the scales are just refractive most blues in fords and reptiles aren't pigment based but structure based.

i'll be at I wouldn't completely rule out crystals, chameleons actually use crystals and there' i'll be at I wouldn't completely rule out crystals, chameleons actually use tiny crystals in their skin made out of one of the base compounds for DNA.

While your criticism is valid scientifically, this creature being only loosely associated with real biology only through name/title and pigment (or lack thereof in this case) allows for the fantastical and the magical to take place of reality. Especially since this is a dragon, and dragons do not have to follow science at all. So it not being scientifically accurate is no way a detraction or a fault of them as an artist. In fact, in my comment, I saw that color balance was more important than accuracy in order to bring out contrast and composition. 

But thanks for the interesting factoids about reptiles and particularly chameleons. :)

Indeed, as for color pallet wow I happened to be more crafted further saturated images myself, I can indeed say that all of this flows well together all those from that since part of me probably wanted to see more blue.

Yeah I can see where wanting more blue would be the case, but adding more would detract from the implied albinism and shock the eyes too much with the clash of the warm reddish pink tones. Well, at least for my eyes. :)
