praying by drachenmagier praying by drachenmagier
A bit of a freak-dragon-design but I guess I never want to get slapped by this one. <w<

Copics, Pencils, Color Pencils and watercolor on paper. I guess a few other materials too (I just used what I could reach from where I was sitting ^^' )

Sry about the watermark but since I found my own works in rather... interesting places lately I decided it might be better to start with those.

This is beautiful! I love the off-kilter geometric shapes used for the claw/hand/wings of this dragon, and the way those shapes continue down to its tail, giving a spine-like appearance that is both natural and not of this world. That is a really unique creature design that looks amazing.

Thank you very much! :D Well, I guess I always had a thing for the idea of floating bits around magical creatures. So, for dragons, this is a bit of a must have in my eyes. ^^

When you color traditional, do you color the flat color and then shade and detail as you go? Or do you do it all at once?

:icondrachenmagier:
drachenmagier Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
I tried both, but for the techniques I use, I prefer to first add general colours (not necessarily flat, just rather rough, compared to what I plan for later) and then details and highlights. :D

Since I REALLY like this piece, I want to say that it might be better to get a (readable) signature for your work. When others steal art and print it the DA watermark can be quite hard to read. (An example of printing that I know of as in selling your art without permission)

Thank you very much.
And I know. Most of my new artworks just have a small watermark on them though. After all, there ARE people who are assholes. But it seems unfair in my eyes to punish everybody else for the mean things a few do. So, if someone wants to go and sell a low resolution print of one of my drawings... Well, not much I can do against that. Chances are I will never know. And instead of going batshit with worry over such a thing, I just... like to sit down and draw more, I guess. :)

... Yeah, I see where you're coming from. Good luck with your future art then, and have fun! I hope you won't have to deal with too many mean people.

Mean people just make me work harder, because I need to proof for myself that I can do better than what they expect. d:
Plus, let's face it: The time I COULD spend discussing with mean people or hunting people who commit copyright infringements... I could also spend drawing. I... prefer drawing. -w- But thanks for caring. ^^
