Luftdrag by Agaave Luftdrag by Agaave
More acrylics dragons! I actually find it relaxing to splash strong and heavy colors on a cardboard after drawing so much detailed and time-consuming colored pencil works. But don't worry, I am just testing different techniques; I am not going to abandon my old style.

Tools: Acrylics (frames and nametag added digitally)

Hooray! :dummy:
This was really fun experiment but still I find myself using watercolors and colored pencils rather than acrylics...

Thank youuuu! :blowkiss:

I had no idea what I was doing with those colors but I definitely had fun!
Background texture is made with painting few layers with different colors and then scrathing the topmost layer.

This is stunning. I worked with Acrylics and haven't done anything as half as good with them X3

Thank you very much! :bow:

I also found acrylics quite difficult to control and at the moment I couldn't do anything delicate with them...
Hopefully I will learn how to paint with them better and can do also some fine details later - although this kind of rough working style is kinda fun!
