My sweet character Naraku :3 I just love him. This time you can see him with scales. Yes, my first dragon that is completely covered with scales. During my last visit in Düsseldorf Evil :icondae-thalin: gave me some example how i can draw scales. Thank you, Dae ! ^-^
I have to say that i'm still practising in drawing scales but i'm very satisfied with this one, really. It took me very long to draw the scales and to color them. I colored every single scales. As always my scanner did a very nice job but his markings are neon green, i don't know why they look so pale her... Anyway i love this piece :3
Hopye you too ! Comments and Favorites are much appreciated :D
And this purple thing on the right is called Miasma, it's a kinda poison.

I ask for Critique becaue of the scales. Maybe someone can give me some advice :3

Used tools: colored pencils, white gel pen

Naraku and art belong to me !!!

Wow, I can imagine it took ages to draw all those scales! :faint:
Looks great tho - they add more tough look to your character instead of smooth skin.
But I like both looks a lot. ^^

How big is this drawing and what kind of colored pencils do you use?

Thank you so much :3
Glad you like the scales, too.
The picture is DIN A5 sized ( 21cm x 14,5 cm), it's smaller than my usual size ( 21cm x 30 cm or DIN A4).
I used the 'Polychromos' colored pencsil of faber castell for the whole picture :)
They are really bright and strong in their colors :)
Just the background is done with water colors ^^

You're welcome!
I also use usually A4 size for my bigger drawings but when I don't want to color big areas I choose A5.
And hey, I use Polychromos also! Mostly I use Faber-Castell's watercolor pencils but I have some Polychromos too and I absolely love their strong pigment. ^^

Great!
I think polychromos are the best :D
The colors are so strong and bright :3
The only disadvantage is the prize ...

I didn't thought that you use also watercolor pencils :)
Good to know xD

Yep, the prize is a bit high but at least it makes me to use the pencils at the end - for example I have now one 5 cm stump I try to color with. :XD:
Those watercolor pencils have also nice pigment and I usually use them without water, just like any other colored pencils.

Same here xD I draw with them till i can't color with them anymore.

I also have some watercolor pencils but i just can't use them like you :)

Oh well, I think using watercolor pencils doesn't really differ from another kind of colored pencils. Just give them a try! ^^

For a first time drawing scales, i would say that you did a good job. I too find it hard to draw scales and sometimes don't even draw all the scales on my dragon, just enough to look like he is covered as this saves time and still looks good. I also like his colors and the pose that he is in. Nice job and keep up the good work! :)

Can I ask you some other question ?

Are you open for ArtTrades and Requests at the moment ?

Ich sehe grade, du bist ja auch Deutsch xD
Nein, leider nicht ^^
Request mach ich gar keine mehr und meine Trades sind im moment geschlossen.
Du kannst bei mir hier [link] im Artstatus nachschauen, wann ich wieder für ATs offen bin. ^-^
Ich aktualisier das regelmäßig.
