First hunt

By Dragarta
1K Favourites
This picture is my contribution for our new dragon calendar - 2014 (December). Winter scene with two young brothers predators on their first hunt. I was looking at quite a lot different references while drawing this. This pic took me tens of long hours and it was quite a battle for me, enjoying only some parts of the picture. It's a bit sad that I am able to make only about one bigger picture per year, usually for the calendar. I guess I lost my motivation to draw or something. Oh well, I have to work on that! Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy it at least a bit! :]
Polychromos pencils, colorless blender, pencil.

OH MY GAWD!!!! How the hell do you get this to look so...... I am speechless. I can not describe this in words. And I thought that WindSpirit Aqaurious was a good artist. But your art is soooooooooooooooo- how do you do it?? What pencils do you use?? Crayolla??!!

Haha, thank you so much! For this picture I used Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils :)

Ooooh! I'm getting third pencils in the mail. I found them out thanks to WindSpirit Aqueous. Her art is beautiful too. But your art by far is the best I have ever seen!

Wonderful wintry landscape and a great dinamic scene. Deserved DD!
Love the dragon's color scheme, and their wings membrane pattern: look fantastic but natural; the tan and copper tones contrast nicely with the sky and snow colder white and blues.
It were woth the ten hours and more!
