So here's the 3rd piece in the set, Aquamarine! Got to use Fluffy Watercolours and focus more on bright, ocean colours and shape. I went with a seahorse theme on this one. 

Very simple piece, but I like how it looks overall. Enjoy!

Hi again!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work again in a post called March Birthstone Dragons - Aquamarine - by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I love this dragon!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and your feature here.  Keep up the good work!

I DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE YOU UPLOADED, HOW DID I MISS THAT?

Oh, not really what I expected. That's good, exceed expectations. Was about to say it looks more green than your average aquamarine, but then I realized it looks exactly like natural aquamarine formations. Love the artsy feel, so different from the previous two
Though I have to question the horn(?) coming out of it's temple(again, ?). the position creates the illution that it's a breathing aparatus, unless that was your intention?

The idea just came to me. I wanted something long and elegant to match the rest of the dragon.

Well, it looks great. If not anatomically, definitely artistically

Same as Canary, i really like the paint splatters and drops. I almost thought you might be late on this one, and i'm glad you made it on time.


I read Canary's post about the end of the tail, and though i'm no artist, in my opinion it might look better if it were just a wee bit shorter and lighter in colour. Other than that it reminds me of a wind-chime.

Love the colors on this one. I also like the paint splotches on the canvas and the actual canvas itself. Makes it look... not flat. Don't know how to word that.  This done digitally, or in real life?

The black string/tail, I'm not sure about that. It doesn't seem to fit in for me. There does not seem to be any outlines on the piece, and having a black line out of the blue just sort of throws things off for me.

Overall, nice job.

When you got 1 day left and Trimester 2 coming in, ye start to question your sanity.

But thanks!
