Old Desert Dragon by UmbraAtramentum Old Desert Dragon by UmbraAtramentum
Done as a Xmas present

4ish + hours, small paper about A5
Utensils:
2H for planning
B for basics and shading
4B for darkest shading
torillion (paper stump) for blending and smoothing tones. (usually used primarily in the planning stage to set points of shadowing, and in this case a lighter les detailed background... and because I just suck at back grounds naturally anyway ^^;)

Scanner is still kaput, so thankyou to my little sister for her camera ;p


Ahhh... tis been a while from traditional, almost nice to just push out a work that is decent :)



Xmas present Marathon: Merry Christmas to all!

Dad

A liitle more contrast on the edges would have made your dragon to pop out. Nice job!

El efecto de la cabeza del dragón en primer plano con el desierto de fondo es fantástica.

Yes, I'm Spanish.

Sorry for comment in my languaje, but I'm not very good in English and sometimes I have problems with some phrases. In this case, I usally prefer comment in Spanish ^^; But I try to translate if the other person don't understand me.

Well, for your words, I think it's not necessary translate my first comment :)
