Watercolour Dragon by drakhenliche Watercolour Dragon by drakhenliche
Not exactly inspired.. just a standard dragon, sitting there, as they sometimes do.
I'm quite annoyed at this - the dragon's painted in a mix of Perylene Violent and Perylene Maroon which gives a beautiful rich colour.. which the scanner ate and I can't seem to recreate in Photoshop. Poop. I tried to photograph it instead but that's no better. You'll just have to use your imaginations or something.

Just a quick picture drop off... my wrist is playing up again so though drawing isn't an issue, typing and using the computer gets a bit sore so I'm giving it a rest for a bit.

Who's to say with a mythical beast?
Unless it's a specific dragon character of mine, I like to experiment with different looks and styles with my dragons.

Thank you :) I'm considering getting a new scanner but I'm not sure there's any way I can be sure a new one would handle the reds any better... it's a bit of a quandary.

haha Apparently red is a difficult color to replicate. Just ask my hair stylist. I asked for red, I got purple. (>_<) I like the pose of this piece, too; a dragon 'just sitting there'. It'd be cool to be driving by and see on perched on some mountain top. :D

lol, I tried to dye my hair red-black once, but it came out purple too... I just stick with blue-black these days instead.
Yes, red seems to be the colour my scanner struggles with the most. Which is rather annoying since it's one of my favourite colours for painting. I think though if I saw one on a mountaintop, I'd make a point of driving by very quickly :XD:

:) Thank you! I recommend just getting a set and having a go - watercolours are so nice to use but I'm still very much learning with them.

Well, maybe the pose and the background are super boring, but I really enjoy your watercolor pictures a lot!
I like how the tip of the wing points out of the background, that gives a lot of life.

:icondrakhenliche:
drakhenliche Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
That's what I hoped for with the wing sticking out there - I thought it'd look a lot more static if I didn't do that.
heh, I still need to work on my watercolour backgrounds. I'll do an interesting one some day (I hope).

Scanners are just mean like that >.<

But it's still amazing, so much detail on a creature that doesn't exist :o
