The Cold loses its bite upon meeting spring, doesn't it?

A bit of an adjusted version of the lines I drew for the Holi colouring contest. :D Just for fun. I'm not quite sure why it's so clear for me that winter and summer have to be dragons, but I can't imagine them in any other way~. :D

Traditional media, markers and watercolours, with a bit of acrylics for the white, on Fabriano Bristol Paper, a bit bigger than A4, but not by much.

"The Cold loses its bite upon meeting spring, doesn't it?"

Yes I can see that, very well done indeed!

Another exquisite piece of details with graceful linework and smooth colour transitioning!

Thank you very much~! :D You went on a commenting spree, eh?

Hand-Sam-Art's avatar

I have left these for too long, so I may have missed the chance to comment on a few uploads of yours, which is why I was making up for lost time.

I was so sad that I couldn't join the contest because your lineart is absolutely awesome!

Hopefully I'll soon find the time to do it still for fun.

The lineart should still be up and if not, I still got a copy of all the files. ^^ So, while it can't be done for the contest anymore, you're free to go full rainbow on it any time you like~! :heart:

Thank you! X3

Ah, with your username, I can guess you do approve of the choice of colours. d:

pinkythepink's avatar

Yes I do :heart: it's so pretty

DarkIsHeartsTruNatur's avatar

Man, that's gorgeous! How long did this take?

drachenmagier's avatar

Thank you! :D The lines were a bit of a back and forth, since they were created upon request and that always takes a bit of time to discuss them. :D Once that was done, I redrew them for myself and coloured that. So, while the lines should not have taken more time than the colouring, they definitely did. :D Colours took a bit more than a day afterwards.

Omg! This is so beautiful! It also describes my inner most feelings! GREAT JOB drachenmagier! I love it!
