Crayon Dragon

Green and blue crayon dragon full piece:

Crayon Dragon WM

I have an old pencil box full of random crayons. I found that the crayolas had solid colors but cheap random brand ones could give a nice waxy blend on top. I wish I had thought to take a picture of the lineart because part of it is kind of obsured, but it’s not a huge loss. The whole thing to big to scan in it’s entirety and likes to roll up at the ends; it’s about the size of two sheets of 8” x 11” paper or approximately¬†11” x ¬†17”.



Ascension Dragon wip2

‘Ascension Dragon’ almost done with prismacolor colored pencils…..:

I had to tweak the colors because the scanner made it a washed-out sun-baked version. I’m still fiddling with the background; I should have planned out the background a little better, but I’m proud of the range of purples I have on the dragon. I’ll post the full piece once I’m done.


Ascension Inks

‘Ascension Dragon’ inked with micron pens. I intend to color the alien-dragon purplish with a full galaxy-like background by next week. We’ll see how realistic that goal is….

I’ve never made a space dragon this large before, and with a full background, so it will be a new frontier to explore!


Recent Adventures

Been working up a huge pile of works in progress over the summer and I need to guilt myself into finishing them:

Started a peacock painting with acrylics sometime last month. I hope to get more comfortable with painting -since I seem to literally more of a pencil pusher.

Still working on my Handbound book project. I’m thinking of fixing the cover with some cool stencil or something. Maybe a cool branchy tree. I’m also gearing up to write down text on page 13:

Nice pair of eyes.

¬†Also working on my very first sculpture with some exceedingly old original scupley clay. If it had an expiration date, it’s probably way past it by now. It’s consistency it a bit chalky and I’m not sure if its supposed to be like that or it’s spent too many hours in a stuffy room. Either way, I’m hoping to get the feet done, smooth out the face and body, and put a pair of wings on him before baking.

And on the side I have my good ol’ standby- traditional art with pencil, paper, and micron pens for inking. It’s a scaly, two-eyed creature. The more I draw scales the easier it gets. Sure it’s a little tedious, but with a bit of patience, the end result is always impressive.

Hopefully I’ll be getting it all done soon.
