AT: Mer- I finally haz my wingz!! by ZeitgeistDragon AT: Mer- I finally haz my wingz!! by ZeitgeistDragon
Edit 12-8-12: i went back and touched it up a bit.


Edit entry 10-13-12: Finally!! another epic full BG pic! ......It's been a minute since ive put this much effort in a pic with full color. I also went back and fixed up the lighting and colors today.

I used mostly color pencils. For the out lines and some of the darkest shaded spots on the dragon, i used some pens and markers over the color pencil to help me get smoother colors, cleaner finish and sharper image.

This is my part of an art trade with :icondamoonsshadow: of her dragonsona, Mer. Since her dragonsona doesn't have wings, i thought i'd draw her with some.

This will also be for Traditional-Art-Only's Group October Challenge "Blue" [link]

Mood music---> [link] mainly that part were it says "Til we find our place, on the path unwinding" :D



Edit 9-27-2012: Up dated line art. I 'm pretty confident that this dragon is anatomically correct with help from :iconkatepfeilschiefter: . But i need to remember from now on to draw those lines of action before i sketch the line art, Like this----> [link]

Lately ive been doing anatomy from memory, but this time i did some heavy referencing....mainly of KatePfeilschiefter's anatomy chart here--> [link] as well as anatomy charts of real animals.


It took me about 16hrs to finish this pic.
Art belongs to me.

Mer belongs to :icondamoonsshadow:

It's amazing that you could get the colors like that with colored pencils, without obvious stroke marks :)
How long did this take you?
