Blue dragon by Rachelance Blue dragon by Rachelance
i'm now open for commissions of this type, read more here [link]

Finished another dragon, it's this sketch: [link] this time i wanted to try blue colours and i really like the result :3
It is more detailed than the first two dragons, because i couldn't stop making those scales, more and more scales and it was both pain and fun to do. but i enoyed painting this one

I like the blue one more than the first and second, but im sure that if i do more dragons, i'll always like the newest one xD

The first dragon


the second dragon


Expect the next one, which will probably be red/brown c:

Done with briliant water colours koh-i-noor
Hope you like it <33

THe anatomy is awesome and the expression is adorable! Some details (like the claws) are kind of hard to see, but it could just be this laptop screen X3

Thank you! I'm trying to improve my anatomy as much as possible so i'm really glad you like it!
Well, it's not your laptop screen- at first the scanner destroyed some details and mainly i didn't want paws and claws to be detailed, because it's just so tiny xD But next time i'll try!

Actually, looking at it now on a different/better monitor, it's much more clear XD. The claws are still faint, but I know how mean scanners can be. Overall it's not really a deterrent from the quality of the image, so excuse my prior comment ^^

And as I said before, I just love the anatomy! I wish I was that good XD Your practicing has definitely paid off :D

I really like the design on this dragon.
I'd have to say my favorite part about it is the secondary "wings" towards the back. I'm really in love with these wings. xD
The blue is very pretty.

Is he/she a personal character? Or was it just a dragon to draw for fun?

Thank you very much, I'm really glad you like it!
I like those secondary wings too, they were fun to draw! The blue was something like experiment, because i've never before painted with blu colours. But i was surprised how good it looks.

No, he isn't. It's just a random dragon to practise anatomy, colouring and try new thing - like those secondary wings or the tail ending.

The blue really works and it's quite nice. (:

I see. Both the tail and wings are beautiful. Good job!
