Oriental Darkness Dragon by Scellanis Oriental Darkness Dragon by Scellanis
This is for :iconpurpelblur:'s second Imagination Expand contest. This time we have to start the picture with this line: www.deviantart.com/deviation/5…
The line is in the tail this time.

When it emerged from the line I was like oh! I'm supposed to be drawing an earth dragon but it can't be that as that is a contest prize so I had to find another element. The first that came to mind was water but I already have an ice dragon so I thought I'd go for something else and settled on Darkness instead. Purple and black for the night sky with silver gel pen spines for stars.

Came 1st!

Thank you but its a little hard to go any darker with just pencils. I did have plans but to add shading it wouldn't work out as dark as it was supposed to be.
