Lionfish Dragon by hibbary Lionfish Dragon by hibbary
I had promised to upload some work and I'm taking a break from commission to do just that.

I've got all these awful markers (I'm terrible with markers) that I finally decided I had to employ or otherwise admit that I spent over a hundred dollars on markers that I never use. Here is one of the results.

He's a gorgeous design.  I'm curious how you get the white highlights.  Is that another marker?  or did you have to keep those highlights in mind as you colored all the rest?

I did this so long ago! But I'm pretty sure it's white acrylic.  I color everything and then put on the specular highlights in white last.

You seem pretty damn good with markers if you ask me. This design is FAN-TAS-TIC. I vote for more fish to dragon conversions, particularly the angler fish. It already has pretty dragonish teeth. The white highlighted areas isn't marker is it?

This is not bad at all! Outstanding draconic appearance being my favorite part, this image is very well colored! I don't see where you got that your awful with markers, the colors are very smooth, fluid and rather fun. The markings themselves look really natural on the face (where it seems you spent the most time on the stripes) and the shading you did is incredible! This image really impressed me when I read you did it with markers, well done!

Did you use some sort of marker for the shine or did you photoshop it? And how were you able to color that dragon without overlapping lines showing?
Reply
:iconhibbary:
hibbary Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011  Professional General Artist
I'm not sure what I could tell you about the overlapping lines except that, if you work fast, you can get down a line of marker and it will blend into the next.

I used acrylic for the highlights.

Yeah, otherwise it *does* streak : / I mean, most people who work with markers seriously in a realistic style don't put down flat coats of color anyway (because it looks so graphic and cartoony, so it really depends on what you're after. If I want realism, though, I usually go for paint. It's more versatile if not a little more involved.
