((( Frozen Sunset ))) by Drerika ((( Frozen Sunset ))) by Drerika
An entry for July Challenge in #TheDragonChallenge

Yes heres a cute little dragon, with dragonfly wings, looking at the sunset in winter.

I really enjoyed drawing this, the captured view of nature in the stock just got my eyes and i so wanted to try those colours by my won hand (with watercolours as i also like that tool :>). But when i finlly wanted to do this, it was one day left for the deadline of that challenge...i was like :noes:, and had to work fast (thats how it came out in only ~1 hour XD). Yes i was fast, as i liek work fast but with quaity. While the progress, there were no interuptions (for going to toilet or have a snack...i had to finish it XD And even my mum said that i should be goign to sleep (afterall it was late evenng) :lol:

Im so in love with this painting i made, and im glad how it came out :love: One of my favourites :nod:
But it looks way better in real life than here XD


Tools: watercolours, colour pencils, correction pen.

Amazing and cute :) And the way You used watercolours is great! (For me watercolours are mythical creatures made to oppress me :) :P )

The colours are very nice. I did find it difficult to make out what the creature was until I read your artist description. Overall it is good it has a calm feeling to it but perhaps you could have drawn it from a different perspective?

fonas :clap:
žavu, gražu ir įdomu : ). ta tekanti/besileidžianti saulė gal nevisai gerai atrodo, bet viskas kitkas tiesiog puiku. Man patinka piešinio siužetas. Tarsi paprastas gražus gamtos vaizdas, tarsi tas keistas gyvis realiai galėtų egzistuoti. Eini sau miško taku, palei upę ir pamatai tokį žolyne betupintį : D

na man tai atvirkščiai: kad tai saulei viskas gerai bet vat medžiai už kurių ji pasilėpus gavosi toki...nežinau, pagaliai XDDD
o idėja ir turėjo būti tokia, kažkas kas galėtų būti realaus :D
Dėkoju :hug:

hm, mat kaip. Matyt ne taip tada supratau. Aš maniau jog tai ne medžiai, o nendrynas prie upės : D. nes mano nuomone pats padaras šiek tiek primena laumžirgį, panašu kad jis smulkus ir tupi ant vienos iš žolių. Tad logiška manyti jog tai nendrės... į medžius tikrai nepanašu, ne todėl kad kaip pagaliukai atrodo, o dėl to kad jie aiškiai per smulkūs, neaiški perspektyva.

tie medžiai turėjo būti kažkaip išblukę ir esantys toli, ir šakos nelabai matytis...tj ir per skubėjimai čia taip turbūt ><

This is really serene, so peaceful and a little lonely. Winter landscapes tend to bring out the feelings of solitude and that really fits the picture. You skillfully used a given stock and made something thoroughly yours :) I love this ^^

So beautiful and serene, just by looking at it I know that the air is cool and crisp, with the last glimmer of heat touching your face. The light is wonderfully caught on the dragon's fur and shining through his wings, with the sun burning brilliantly through the field. Very best of luck in the competition!
