Dragonair - Redux by MiyaYoshi Dragonair - Redux by MiyaYoshi
Sometimes an artist just needs to sit down and prove to herself that she can still draw.
I vowed a long while back that I'd redraw this one, and now that I have, I'm rather pleased.

Here's the original version, for the curious.

Edit: Larger version!

Dragonair (c) Pokémon

I have a trick question for the world. Look at my journal to see if you can answer it. My mom couldn't... Then again. The only Pokémon she knows are Jigglypuff, Skitty, and Victini... MY brother didn't know the answer either. And there is not a single excuse for him!

Heart Dragonair--it's my favorite Dragon type!  It looks so graceful and majestic in this picture, and I love how you drew the sunset and the waves in the background.  Wonderful job! :-D

What a beautiful piece!! I really love the colors! I hope you don't mind, but I'd like to use this in a banner for one of my customers on a pokemon RP site. His fave are Dragonairs and he wanted something that incorporated the sea and air--and this. is. PERFECT.

Thou shalt be credited. ;D

Oh hai you! Looks like you found my devArt. XD

And thanks! It was colored pencils on regular ol' computer paper. After scanning I smoothed all the textures with the blur brush and touched up the highlights in MS Image Composer.

That is SO COOL.
The water looks so real, and the clouds and sunrise in the distance too! Not to mention geat work on the subject itself. Also, dragonair is a favourite of mine :D I spent ages in the safari zone in Fire Red and just as long playing voltorb minesweep in Soul Silver to get two dratini so I could have both dragonair and dragonite.

Hah, that's dedication. Dragonair is definitely cool enough to warrant that much work, though. I kinda like how the games make it rare or just plain tough to get--appreciates the value of something that cool, you know?
Thanks for commentin'!

The drawing is good, but honestly it's the painting that really makes this stand out! The sky is calm yet somehow epic and the water really shows some great atmospheric perspective. Looks like time well spent!

This is one of the most beautiful dragonair pictures I have ever seen. You manage to make her look so REALISTIC, as weird as that sounds. This is absolutely beautiful, and you shouldn't be pleased. You should be very, very proud :)

Not bad, the exact kind of environment (and time of the day) you'd likely see such a rare and mystical Pokemon enjoying its wide open space...much like the very shy Loch Ness monster actually :ninjaeat: nice colours and mood :relaxed:
