The linearts of this picture are also from January, 2012.^^
I finished it last weekend when i visited evil :icondae-thalin:
The weekend was so great and finally i could draw with someone together :3
Dae also showed me how to use copic markers to make transitions smoother 8)
And somehow i like this picture and somehow i don't...
I hate the colorations even it was so fucking hard D:
But it has been the first time since June 2010 that i drew my Kohaku again xD
He's my amber dragon and it was a lot of fun to draw him :3
Hope you like it !

Dae, der Bifröst-Mann kommt! xD

used tools: colored pencils, white gel pen

Kohaku and art belong to me!!!

Thanks ^^

Here is a Tutorial i've made :)

I actually like this one a lot. The only real color trouble I feel is here, is just too much white-ish color. The glowing crystals, the stone, the glowing markings, the claws, the undersides of the wings, it just all feels very overwhelming, and distracts me from the beautiful and full colors that you used on the sky and trees. Not that I dislike the crystals, stone, and his glowing, I just feel the picture needed to be bigger, so more of the background could be seen and draw his other colors out more. All and all though, I really like his design, and I love your colors, as usual!

Thank you so much for your long comment ^-^

I agree. I knew that something is wrong with the picture but didn't know what. :)
But there is just too much glowing like you said :3
But i'm glad you like it anyway!
I'm glad I could help!

Ich mag leuchtende Drachen, ganz besonders in solch Blau-Tönen ;) schöner leuchtender weicher Übergang, kann nur wieder sagen: Hut ab ^^"
