Holy Dragonnight by Gewalgon Holy Dragonnight by Gewalgon
After a long time it was time to upload a new drawing!
I'm glad to upload this now, it was a lot of fun to draw this dragon! ^^
I started this drawing in my work xD (Some of you already know that I am working as nursery nurse^^)
The children were very interested and sat around me on the "drawing table". I love to draw with children together. I could inspire them, and they could inspire me, you won't believe it! :D
We drew together on blackpaper and their works were beautiful too!
But I couldn't finished this piece in my work, so I finished it today at home^^

I hope you like it, there is a lot of Love and positive feelings in this drawing! :love::shamrock:


[Drawn on a black paper with color pencils, pastel chalks and white edding]

Let's start with the background: well done. I like how you did the grass and stars. Detailed but not so much so that it's distracting. I say 5/5 star for the background!
Second the Dragon itself of course: it's very good. I love how you did the scales, horns and eye. Detailed yet still stylized and quite cute. I say 5/5 star dragon!
Now for the colors: they're lovely. I really like all the green tones only broken by the black/white of the lines, the light gold of the moon and the pale red on your dragon. But I have to add that it could use longer shadows and a little more shading to help show that it's night and the moonlight is behind the dragon. As is, it rather looks like your dragon is standing by another light source besides the moon. Over all I give your coloring job a 4/5 star.
What do you think?

Wow, es sieht echt total klasse aus. Die Coloration ist total super geworden, mir gefällt besonders das Auge, das wirkt irgendwie so ausdrucksstark. Echt eine sehr gute Arbeit! :)

Hi, this looks really good. I am working on my first piece now, and I am using color pencils. How do you create your fine white lines? This really adds life to your drawing.

Thank you very much; I didn't even know these existed until I saw your page. I found a little more info on YouTube ( [link] ). I don't know if this is the same or if it even helps, but I thought I would show what I found as well. Thanks again! :)

Yes, it's very similiar to the edding! Thank you for sharing!
Maybe it's much more easier to draw with the white gel pen... the edding is sometimes difficult to handle, because you have to press the tip if you want the color, and sometimes it runs out x.x

Yes, they can be, but only if you're kind too!
They are very easy to steer, and if they have bad persons as role models they can be like devils.
We've got a new nursery nurse, but she hasn't the feeling to work with children... and if the children are in her group, I can't believe that they're the same children like in my time with them... (I hope my english was understandable)

Hehe, your English was great. I did not even suspect that English is not your first language. :D
That is so true about kids. I always stay on my guard to try and be a good model to them.
