Wow, DeviantArt doesn't want to upload anything tonight! *smacks it with a monkey wrench*

Sea Dragon

This scan/full view is actually twice the size of the original which measures at 14.5 x 17.5 centimetres. Little! All done in 0.1 and 0.05 fineliner.

I wanted to do something more for myself, just to relax and not think about commissions or the totem oracle deck (which has been absorbing so much of my time). So... a sea dragon! Lol.

illustrator's board. fineliner. exciting stuff really!

I love the very under-water looking filaments on its body, it really makes it look like a sea-creature.

The sea "texture" seems a little strange (but drawing water is always impossible anyways.. ) but I love the textures of the dragon and the rocks (and anemones & plant stuffs) and how they contrast against each other. Thumbs up!

yeah the texture was the bit I did last (in the sea), so it's probably the laziest texture.... *grin*

On my screen it's that exact size :)
I like the detail you put into it. The shape of the sea dragon is so cool~~ I also like the plants you put on the stones behind the dragon (^-^)

Thanks! Yeah I think the irony is that the plants are my favourite too. Particularly the anemones. I'm going to remember how I did them and do them again.
