Snow Dragon by hibbary Snow Dragon by hibbary
Another quickie done in acrylics.




It's probably a bad sign that the first half an hour or so of painting is my favorite. I tend to like less anything I add or change after that. Detailing is boring! So I set out to enjoy myself with this one and not worry about that sort of thing :P

Interesting take on a dragon. I like how it's a little different than your average dragon interpretation.

I really like the feeling that I get from this. Very crisp and serene. Your ability to imbue animal faces with realistic emotion always impresses me. :]

You could probably just ink some stuff and toss it out to someone like myself who only has coloring skills but can't do outlines if my life was on the line.

This guy is somehow both creepy and majestic at the same time, haha. I like what you did with the limited colors and contrast. That and the perfect little watercolor snowflakes in the background =)

What a fantastic design. Such a breath of fresh air to see something different from the conventional dragon :heart: Love all those icy cold blue tones and hues involved, and the creatures face captivates me...it's an almost sly, calculating and discerning look - but one that speaks of intelligence and careful judgement. Even the effect in the background is reminiscent of ice crystals or snowflakes! Just beautiful :)

I work in chunks. There was one picture I did where I blocked it in rather than sketched, and now I can't finish it! Not because I no longer have any way fixing it, but because I didn't stop and enjoy the sketch!

Hmm.
i get you about the first part of hte painting being the most enjoyable.
designing and sketching is FUN.
and cleaning things up is enjoyable.
i can't sya i know though, since i have a hard time refining, so for me, it's all an educational experience.
interesting take though!

also, lovely painting!
love the blues!

How did you get that background effect with acrylics? It looks like you used water colours with salt, I had no idea it could be done with acrylics. This turned out marvelously. I too dislike fiddling with the details. Broad, loose strokes to suggest the object feel so much better.
