The Deeping Dale by Elssence The Deeping Dale by Elssence
It's winter in my part of the world, yet we don't ever get snow. But the temperature sure as hell feels like we should expect snow some days.
I wanted to (again) put my thoughts on to paper and create a wintering atmosphere.

I had no access to a scanner, so yet again, it was taken by camera, so there is colour in there, I don't know if you guys can see it :(

Personally I enjoyed drawing this, even though it's a small piece. But hopefully I succeeded in my 'winter mood'.
(Sill working on my larger scale project).

Watered down acrylics, Polychromos Pencils and black & white ink pen.

It's beatiful. That picture causes a lot of emotions, some sadness feeling... This work stands out among other which I usually see.
The execution of the picture is good, I like it

Thank you so much! Yeah, this one has got to be one of my favourites too.
I did enjoy working with the grey scale, and the emotion.
I'm glad you like it! :aww:

Phenomenal background! Where did you get your anatomy of the dragons?

Thanks! Anatomy, I look around at examples then I execute
those examples in my own way. Usually it's the pose I manipulate to my own liking.
I do everything else by imagination. :aww:

Personally I'd favor a camera rather than a scanner, most of the time the picture is too bright so you can't really see any of the shading I did in some of my sketches.

Yeah same, but unfortunately you can't make out the colour in this piece as well as you can on paper :X

I love it! As amazing as your color drawings are, you're just as good at regular graphite!
