Speedpaint here! www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfTVZb…; Watch me die from all that grass <3

And full size here: sta.sh/0193ll6an35m



I needed my dose of super-detailed picture.

Got the idea to draw this because summer's finally on the horizon, and good weather always makes me want to draw Solna for some reason. wow look that rhymes
I can't wait to go on the hammock at night again to draw and stargaze at the same time, the best moments of the year are the simpliest yep

Have Sol enjoying the warm summer evening, lying on one of her favourite spots :lol: It's the same spot you can see her napping on in the comic:  fav.me/d7io4u8
That tree is right near the entrance of the gang's hideout, because YEP they have a hideout! :dummy: It's the very same place as the background seen here: fourth-star.deviantart.com/art… but its design changed a lot since, I'll have to post some concepts of the improved version, and the inside of the hideout too.

I LOOOVE drawing scales that way, but it's really time-consuming, I think I spent about 4 hours on the scales alone  x'D And then add 2-3 more hours drawing nothing but grass. AWELL I ENJOY HURTING MY BRAIN


I think it's the second or third time I drew a detailed pic of Solna with scales and all, one of them was on my old account, and I think there's another somewhere in my current gallery.

Overall I enjoyed working on this <3 Starting to paint the background was a bit of a pain but the rest was fun! But I always use the same colours in every pic, even if I try NOT to, it unintentionally ends up with similar colours anyway xD


AND LOOK WHO GOT HER NECKLACE BACK

Made with: Paint Tool SAI, GIMP, Photoshop Elements 6.0 and a few sacrificed braincells.
Time taken: guessing 15-ish hours

Yes. It's wonderful when you can stretch on grass under soft light of lamps surrounded with many sounds of summer evening. And just lying. Thinking about nothing. Because you are exactly who you are. Your are dragon and here is home.

The details. :iconiloveitplz: This is so well-done I can hardly believe my eyes. Her legs look a bit short, but the beauty makes up for it.
Oh, my goodness, I just love this so much. :heart:

I'm burning with curiosity here--do you draw each scale individually, or use some Sai technique to 'mass produce' them??

I draw them by hand individually c:
