Dragon Mountain (or Hibernation)Thursday, September 26, 2013
I was inspired to draw some mountains and clouds after stumbling across this gorgeous illustration for the Wacom Cintiq:
I then began sketching out some rough ideas, and somehow a fluffy lil dragon made its way into the composition. I'm quite drawn to the idea of secret worlds amidst the seemingly ordinary.
|Initial rough sketches. The tiny box on the upper left corner shows that the original idea was a person staring at the mountains. The one on the upper right shows the general dragon shape, while the bottom sketch is the dragon in detail.|
|Cleaner sketches. When I was done painting the mountains I decided to place the dragon inside a nice, warm cave (bottom sketch)|
