Wow, look at all those marvelous feathers, like a peacock in bloom. Um. Yeah... that statement made sense I'm sure.

The colors on this one are wonderful!

Wow, this is really beautiful *_*
I love everything of this picture.
The details are just amazing and the coloration is very well done!
I also love the cold colors.
I think this is really one of your best pictures so far :)
It's just awesome i don't know how to describe it xD

Just one question.
Did you use the watercolors for the background? I did you do all the little swirls and textures in the background?

Agaave Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you so much! :glomp:

For background I used few layers of watercolor washes: I painted one layer, dropped salt over it, let it dry and removed the salt. Then I repeated the method. Lastly (after coloring the dragon) I spattered some white and light blue acrylics with toothbrush over the whole picture. So those swirls are result of watercolor and salt.

Ohhh, yes. I wasn't wrong when I said the colored version of this would be total eye-candy. Because it totally is!!! I love the colors of the dragon, how they fade from purple to blue. Dragon almost seems to be glowing! :love:

wow I love how detailed this is, very pretty and very well done! I would say in the future for your background to refrain from using the same color as whats in your foreground as you loose the creature in it, an opposing color would of made this pop a lot more :D

Yep, she has a bit too similar colors than the background but as a floral dragon she may want to blend with her environment. ;P

Haven't seen any art from you lately, so I must say I'm quite surprised. In a good way, of course.
You've probably spent hours working on this one. Very detailed :nod:
Gotta love those eyes, they look beautiful!
Good job! :D
