Look! A piece that isn't completed a few hours before the last day of the month. 
Okay so theres like 1 extra day left, but I had this done like a few days ago don't judge pls  

A few days after the new year, I decided to initiate a side project apart from my main project that I have yet to announce. Each month, throughout the year I will post a piece of a unique dragon character based on the gemstone of the month. Since this is January, this theme is Garnet. 

Another aspect of this project is that I will always be using a different brush type to change up my style. This month, I used markers, and DAMN am I really loving how it came out! With this project, I'll be practicing more on creating unique traits, be more motivated to complete a piece each month, and try out different brushes rather than the ones I always use.

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

Wow. . .  this is beautiful! And you did it with markers? Stunning! Just. . . just. . . usually I have words to compliment you with but I can't think of anything that does this piece justice.

*Would like to clarify that they were marker brushes on an art program and not literal markers*

But thank you!

Mah birthstone!

I really love the rocks and those little wing-things! Nice work! The anatomy of the dragon also looks good, too. I don't draw dragons, though, so what would I know about anatomy?

Really beautiful! I love how to simple background really brings the center to attention without drawing too much attention to itself. I look forward to the next art in this series!

Woooo, pretty

Seriously though, that is gorgeous. I really should take a couple pages from your rule book, because you're improving like nobody's bussiness
