005 . Dragon's Orb
October 19, 2006

-----

Please Full View for details!

A color picture for the fifth addition to my dragon collection! :D

The scanner messed up most of the color, so it appears quite a bit lighter than it actually is...*sigh*

This originally started as just a random dragon, but I couldn't decide where to put it. I'd already done one with a rock, and I didn't feel like drawing a castle. So an orb seemed like a nice challenge. It's got a slight silver tint to it, but otherwise is supposed to be a shiny white in color. I probably could've done better on it.

I decided to make the dragon red because I'd already done a blue one and I don't particularly like green dragons. Yellow seemed a little bright, and I only have one shade of yellow, anyway. That would've been a little boring ^^;

Enjoy!

Very beautiful colouring, I love the wings :)

My scanner eats colours too but I've found using the auto colour option in Photoshop means I can get it back to whats on the paper. Its worth playing with if you are able to :)

When I posted I didn't have Photoshop handy but now I do :) You can find it under Image > Adjustments > Auto-Colour or Shift+Ctrl+B.

I hope you find it as useful as I have :)

I love the shading in this. A beautiful dragon, I can't see any anatomical errors.

Thanks so much!! :hug:

I think the wings are a little too long, not the rib part but the forearm/elbow part. Oh well xD
