This is the first leg of a four-part art trade with . We decided to each do pictures with dragons centered around the four seasons. I thought the lines for my set were strong enough to present as color-mes, so I'm getting them cleaned up for submission here at DA. More to come!
Backgrounds are no big deal; when I can't think of one (which is 98% of the time...), I just throw in some watercolor to fill it in.
This picture deserves serious applauds:
I hope we'll see also yourself coloring this one. ^^
I think of snakes flying through the air, and long-finned fish swimming through water. I think the effect is more swimmerly than anything else, and from there it's just a matter of balancing the shapes of the composition so that the read the way I like.
By the way, was this lineart originally done digitally or in pen?
I originally did this with pen and ink, then I run it through Photoshop to clean it up a bit.
