A5 full colored picture with detailed background for Xervous showing his character Szareth :] I must say I'm glad that I'm done with this one, I started with it at july (I think?) and finished now... and I have to commend myself because I did this without any true reference, only find some photos of water lily :aww: and I wasn't expecting it will end as good as it is :D

If someone would be interested in seeing WIP photos of ths picture, I can give link to collection at my Sta.sh :)

used: liners, watercolors (sky, water, rock, trees in back), aryclic paint (for foreground green, water lily and stars), aquarell color pencils (dragon) - on Canson A5 watercolor paper

character belongs to Xervous only, respect it please
art belongs to me Samantha-dragon

Samantha-dragon's avatar
of course I did, it's in my gallery :D it contains my signature too.
Why it shouldn't be painted by me? O.o

I really need a lesson in coloring foliage.

well, I did it best I could but I'm still not sure about them - I didn't followed any special technique or tutorial or something. Just how you can see it. It helps to find some reference photos too :)

Vertebrates are tetrapods, not hexapods.
The wings are nothing else than transformed upper limbs due to evolution, not an additional 3rd pair of limbs.
So, either one or another.

Well, I'm not sure why they can't be hexapods? Maybe not at our world but oh well, this is fantasy ;) When you draw dragon with lighter wings (without "the arm" that similar to look we are used to)... I think it looks strange and like it can't ever bear heavy dragon. 
Out there lots of dragons looking like this and "western" type of dragon have even quite long history.

Anyway, thanks for opinion.
