Speedpaint 5/7/13
Time: 4:16

For this speedpaint, I decided to revisit an older piece of mine. I really like the idea, but I thought I could do much better with it now, compared to a few years ago.
I think it turned out much better. The process behind this piece has been saved, on Livestream. [link]

The awesomely punny title was suggested in the livestream by Tempo. [link]
I'm rather pleased with the result. It hardly seems like a speedpaint, in a way. :)

This is an awesome drawing. In fact, it is so awesome a merging of my 2 favorite things, I want to use it as a custom Wells Fagro Card. Can I have your permission for that?

We need a comic, or at least shortstory, so inspiring.

Poor thing needs a projector, or at least a proper stand and a magnifying lens.

Strangely adorable, even though he's probably, like, hundreds or thousands of years old.

That would totally be me if I was a dragon I think.

Love your bookwyrm!  I write a book review blog called The Bookwyrm's Hoard, so I've started to "collect" (i.e., favorite on DeviantArt) good pictures of bookwyrms in particular and dragons in general.Submit Comment

    Haha. That is a very punny title. :giggle:
    Great work! Great atmosphere.

*low whistle* this is quite impressive. And the more I look at it the more it seems like a stained glass window... in a library for the most punny effect.

Ha! I get it! The title! It's hilarious. And punny. Very very punny.

Indeed!
I'm glad you enjoy this one.

They way you have dragons doing common everyday things is just awesome! And you always pull it out off so well too.
Chromamancer's avatar
Thank you very much!
It's hard to think of everyday things that are as interesting or fun as this, though.

I mean, a morning cup of coffee might be neat, but it doesn't have that special fantasy quality. ;)

It does if the dragon is using their fire breath to warm up the cup.
