Swamp of Xanado by Elssence Swamp of Xanado by Elssence
Ambient sound: [link]

I am quite annoyed that the true green of this picture is not showing. I much prefer the RL copy. But I was able to update it to look kind of like the green that is on paper.

A little something for my watchers. I decided to play round with green, as I have not yet really used much of this colour. Took be about 4 and a half hours to do, without breaks.

Polychromos Pencils, watered down acrylic paint and black & white ink pens.

Again, I am annoyed at the colour that is seen on the screen shot.

Enjoy.

I truly like that green in this painting.
The dragon is beautiful .. but one question: Is he standing on two or four legs?

This looks very nice, even if your scanner ate it. My scanner is the same way with blues.

I especially like this dragon's wings - the swirl design and the translucency looks really neat!

I used a camera to capture the image, but I must find better means of scanning, at some point haha.
Thanks again.

That is so absolutely gorgeous. I love the greens, the blues, everything.

Those ripples, those wings, those trees. Your texture is amazing. So much magic. Even the distant background, those shadows, those colors... my gosh.

I think it's great.

Hehe, thank you so much. It is a shame that the green that is sitting
in-front of me on paper, is not the green you see here.
But, I'm glad you like it :aww:
