_______________________________________

A picture of my water spirit Caeruleus. I didn't draw him for a long time. I tried to draw a little bit realistic xD It took me about one week to finsih this picture @_@ I put a lot of effort in it. I hope you see that.

I also decided to draw all my other spirits with scales. I'll draw my Arminius (fire), Kohaku (earth), Ventus (wind) and my Flash (electricity). :)

I hope you like it!

used tools: colored pencils, white gel pen
__________________________________________
Before someone asks, here is a little Tutorial how i use my colored pencils ;)

Caeruleus and art belong to me!

This work drew me in and once I got closer it did not disappoint me. It really evokes emotion. What a powerful and stunning usage of color and I was completely shocked to find it was a traditional style piece. Honestly everything about it is flawless, I can't give much constructive criticism.
The way you captured the face of the creature and how it's feet are perching on the water. The texture of its body is amazing as well.
It is a very original piece, I am really envious of your creativity.
You are clearly a very talented artist and this piece is incredible! I wish I had enough money to purchase this.
What do you think?

How it is possible that I haven't already commented this a-m-a-z-i-n-g drawing? :omg:
I was peeking some pictures of Ventus (no, not going to tell why :plotting:) and bumpend into this master piece.

This is really dynamic and powerful picture! Pose is awesome as well as background.
But what I love the most is your coloring: it is so smooth! (Dang, I must stop using black lines and start to practice lineartless coloring...)
Especially the way you have colored and shaded all those scales is beautiful.

Your color choices here are also great; loving those different shades of blue. :heart:

Dankeschön :3
Ich hab mir einen Scanner gekauft, der speziell auf korrektes Farbscannen ausgelegt ist ( nicht weil mein alter kaputt war, sondern weil er so alt war, dass er sich nicht mehr an einen neuen Pc hat anschließen lassen -.-°)

Hast du schon mal versucht, bei deinem Scanner Einstellungen zu ändern? Manchmal liegt es auch daran ^^
Z.B. hilft es schon sehr, wenn man den automatischen Farbton ausschaltet.

bitte schön ^^ hab mir mal dein Tutorial angeschaut, ich hab ne ganz ähnliche Taktik, nur fang ich mit den hellen Stellen zuerst an weil ich auf schwarzem Papier male. Hätt ja auch mal lust auf weißem Papier was zu probieren, momentan häng ich aber noch an nem Digitalbild rum O_o
Mit meinem Scanner kann schon sein dass der das einfach nicht kann, hab eigentlich schon ewig so ein Drucker/Scanner in einem dens mal bei Aldi gab ^^ vielleicht muss ich da mal in einen neuen investieren

Auf schwarzem Papier habe ich noch nie was gemacht, aber hört sich interessant an :)

Diese Kombis sind meisten nicht gut, weil die automatisch vieles an den Farben verändern. Z.B. die Sättigung heben und dann sind die Farben viel zu kräftig.
Also von denen kann ich wirklich nur abraten xD
Entweder einen ganz neuen kaufen oder sich mal umschauen und nach gebrauchten suchen.
Auch manche alte Scanner sind noch sehr gut ^^
Ich habe noch einen Uraltscanner von HP Scanjet und der hat immer eine sehr gute Arbeit gemacht :3
Nur bei Rot/Orange hatte er ein paar Probleme xD

Hmmm I guess it you want a more realistic look, you could look photos of lizards, fish, and other things to get the textures right.

What do you mean with textures? The scales?
