I used Prismacolor Scholar pencils for most of it, with some Prisma Premiers for a couple of colors that aren't present in the Scholar set.
I finished this in 2020, but it is officially my first post of 2021!

Thank you, and Happy New Year to you, also! The background colors were tricky. I wanted bold colors, but I didn't want them to overpower the dragon. I also was not sure how to balance out his belly scales - it turns out that the reddish-purples did the job!
Thank you! I've been grumpy most of the year, and that tends to interfere with my creative processes. I'm working my way out of it, and finally have made a little progress with some new stuff - generating a positive feedback loop!
