First flight by Dragarta First flight by Dragarta
This picture is my contribution for our dragon calendar - Draci.info 2013 (May). I am happy I finished some bigger picture after such a long time. This one took many, many hours but it was a great practise with using only coloured pencils without any underpaint. And of course I was looking at several photos of nature while drawing this. I hope you'll enjoy it at least a bit! :]
Polychromos pencils, colorless blender, pencil.

Finally i can leave a comment on this beautiful picture! When i saw the sketch i knew that this will be a very amazing picture. I just felt in love with this one.
The colors are so vivid and warm. I especially like the green of the gras and the blue of the sky. It also amazes me how soft the transitions are. Everything looks so smooth and realistic! Great job with all the details as well. I love it how you drew all the scales and feathers of the dragon mother.
Also a like the shadings and the highlights of the whole picture and i just love it how you drew the clouds.
They look so soft and fluffy xD
In my opinion it's one of your best pictures, really.
I think everything is said for now :3

Not every blue Dragon must be Saphira.
