Its again been a few days since I made anything card related. And since I haven’t come up with anything good, I thought of publishing some of my older works – which are not card related. Welcome to another post for the ‘etc’ of my blog!
I had made this dragon wall art – just a A3 size panel – for my sister to hang in her room. This is not an original!! I am definitely not that good!! I had downloaded this image from after searching in Google for a dragon image I can draw/paint. Here’s the source.
I first drew the dragon in pencil, and then colored it using Zig Brush pens. For the white – I tried a variety of things – Uniball white gel pen, Camel drawing ink white pigment paint.. probably some more – I don’t really remember. The white wasn’t just showing enough for me, and finally white acrylic paint worked. The dotted lines came different from the original – because I wasn’t paying enough attention.
And notice how you almost can’t see the beast’s horns… yeah.. again, not something I had planned. The paint just wouldn’t do its job. And I got tired and left it there. (I give up too easily :P)
Well, once the dragon was complete, I made the surroundings using distress ink. I half sponged, half watercolored the colors. Mostly used browns and a bit of green..you can hardly see the greens, in fact!
I guess its not half as bad as I thought… but then when I had finished, I had a lot of complaints with it – and I don’t remember them now at all1 😀
As a side announcement, I am thinking of reducing my blogging time. I think I have a few things that need priority. Doesn’t mean that I’ll stop anything – after all, card making really makes me happy and reduces my stress and all.. I will just be reducing the time I spend on it. But, I’ll still be visiting all the blogs of my friends and the ones I admire, to leave comments and get more inspiration…and get ‘wow’ed! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
