The Albino by Adorael The Albino by Adorael
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

This piece of work has excellent details and coloring with just the right amount of shadowing. I particularly like the way you have him coiled around himself. The impression here is that he is shy while trying to look mean. He knows that being an albino makes him an outcast so he tries to make up for it with a mean look. He's actually quite beautiful. This is a well designed piece of work with no junk to muck up the works. This would be beautiful in a book written for children. A child would fall in love with him

I felt you really captured the feel of a dragon in this work of art. Although true albinos (minus a few exceptions) would not have any blue or otherwise markings at all, I really enjoyed what you did with this. I can see also that you made the rippling powerful feel on the curves of the dragon.
This work of art is truly beautiful, and I would love to have a framed picture.
Although the wonderfully drawn head is probably the focal point for most viewers, I payed attention to all of the long and strong body. This work of art pays attention to detail, and I take pleasure in this.

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.
Sombraluz-Images Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2016  Professional General Artist
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.
Sombraluz-Images Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2016  Professional General Artist
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. :)

Here's my 'unprofessional' critique.  I think this is a cool piece.  It has a doughy-melty feel.  The colour is nice and... doughy.  And, the dragon looks particularly cozy, content, and warm -- all ready for cuddles. :hug:

sindhoorella Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This my favorite piece. The dragon is at rest and I can feel the relaxation of its body. The gems, a compositional success, add an interesting bit of contrast and help lead the viewer's eye around the picture.
