Watercolor Dragon by Fyrrea Watercolor Dragon by Fyrrea

Brass orchestra is playing under my windows and I couldn't take it anymore, so I escaped into world of traditional art. Nothing special, but I haven't uploaded anything for quite a long time so I thought I'd share it with you. 

Media used: 
Karmanski watercolors
Kozlowski brushes
Canson Montval watercolor paper - A5
Derwent Coloursoft pencils for touch-ups
White and silver gel-pens
Lots of boredom and live brass orchestra music (my brain is turning to brass now -_-)

Well I think it's a nice piece. Captures the gravitas a dragon can have. :)

Very striking. It floats above the paper, casting shadow onto the paper at the base.

Wyrazy wspolczucia z racji okolicznosci powstania tej pracy, ale popatrz jaki sliczny akwarelkowy smok wyplynal z tego cierpienia! :giggle: Bardzo fajnie wyszly te intensywne "gorace" odcienie :heart:
Karmanski - moje pierwsze powazne akwarele :love: duzo nimi sie namalowalo, ale przyznam szczerze ze przesiadka na Leningrady byla jak przesiadka z Fiata do Ferrari (no dobra, moze nie zaraz Ferrari, ale nie znam sie na tych markach samochodow :dummy:). Polecam kiedys sprobowac lepszej polki :)
(Sorki za brak polskich znakow, jestem chwilowo ich pozbawiona)

Jak zużyję Karmańskie to na pewno spróbuję Leningradów (dobrze kojarzę że to jest to samo co Białe Noce? Czy coś mi się pomerdało?)

Moje Karmańskie nigdy się nie zużyły przez pięć lat, szkoda czekać ;)
Tak, to to samo co White Nights/Białe Noce/St. Petersburg. Półka cenowa bardzo akceptowalna za taką jakość, zwłaszcza jeśli nie chcesz wydawać fortuny na Winsory Newtony a nadal cieszyć się dobrymi akwarelami ;p

Very beautiful.  You really expand your hues to give more definition to the limited color choice, which is so well done that it adds to your color spectrum, regardless.  The balance is just perfect and those touches of contrasting dark colors are really a treat to the eyes. 

I am particularly impressed by how you mastered your own style with the watercolor medium, because a lot of watercolor art tends to go more towards the flat and softer side with art styles, but you kept your solidity and your shading is top notch, providing that depth to the piece that most watercolor pieces are lacking.

Now, the bottom of the render just suddenly drops flat, which makes sense for watercolors, but I really wish I could have seen more of a transition there between the more "3D" experience into the "2D" shift where it drips away.  With a sudden shift in dynamic, it can leave the impression of an unexpected closure to your piece or it can appear as though you just ran out of paper and the piece is incomplete.  However, if this is intentional, no offense is intended.  I know that a lot of artists like to have that sudden shift within their art and my personal preference is far from any level of critique one should take to heart. 

Again, just stunning work of art, thank you for sharing it.  Excellent work!

My "own style" might be caused by that I've never had any "fine art education" or anything, no one taught me to paint with traditional media the right way, so I'm just inventing my way ;) 

(And to be honest, I had no idea what to do with the bottom, I was afraid I'd ruin the whole picture, so I just left it kinda unfinished, but safe)

It almost looks like American Dragon Jake Long if they made a sketch for a live action film adaptation for the series. Only without the green streaks
