Finally managed to get an almost decent picture of this painting. Still not a great photo, the original has some very nice subtle color and texture that’s hard to capture. It’s rare to do a lighting experiment I’m actually happy with, lighting is something I really appreciate in art but have a hard time rendering myself.

4” x 6” on Canson paper, I haven’t used it before so this was a bit of a test. It’s not meant for watercolor, but some of my favorite papers aren’t, I like the textures I can get get with some of them. Didn’t take well to layering, so I did more dry brushing and paint lifting than usual, which was fun and worked well for the bark especially.

100% watercolor, I usually use a bit of gel pen, pencil, ink, pen, etc, but I wanted to see if I could go without, turned out pretty nice.

Original has been sold.

Prints are currently unavailable, as I can’t print from home like I used to. I hope to get some prints made up if I can raise some money doing a preorder type thing.

SOAR was at a local event and I got to draw some of their gorgeous birds from life. :D

I decided that I like the faerie dragon bebby’s sketch enough to actually flesh out his design. BEBBY.

(this may or may not be his final coloration because i’m finicky)

((he is not actually missing his near wing, i just hid it by the power of artist so that his backfrill things are visible :>))

EDITT: Added a new, color-adjusted version and now I can’t decide between the two. Opinions??
