Sea Dragon Painting WIP

I got started on painting this. I did the sketch transferring and painting preparation on Thursday. I got most of the background done. I have a feeling that this painting won't take very long to finish. I like how it's coming along so far! :)

Sea Dragon and Mermaid Sketch

This is a sketch that I've been working on. I don't paint many mermaids, but this idea came to me. And I've been trying to paint more dragons too because they're my favorite fantasy creatures. I've just always been better at painting/drawing people.

I don't really know exactly what kind of colors I want to paint this yet. All I know is that it is going to be night, so it'll be pretty dark. :)

Below are some of the little thumbnail sketches that I did to figure out what pose and composition I wanted to use. Yes, they are very rough! :) I decided I liked the third one the best. It seemed the most natural to me.

Well, that's about all for now. I just thought I'd share what I'm working on at the moment...

Shadow Dragon -- New ACEO!

I was originally planning on the dragon being green when I first started this, but it went in a completely different direction. I'm really happy with how it turned out though! I think this is my new favorite of my mini-dragon ACEOs! Before this one, I liked Dragon Angel the best. :)

Watercolor and white goauche. 2.5 x 3.5"

Predatory -- New ACEO!!

This is my newest ACEO, "Predatory." lol I've been misspelling that word all day. Anyway, I've got it straight now. ;) This is the 5th in my animals series, of which the limited edition prints are nearly sold out. I still have some of "Fierce" which features a tiger, but the other three are sold out. So for this one, I made the edition larger, out of 27.

The Original is for auction on ebay! You can view that HERE!!

Prints available on my website here.

Almost Ready....

I got my first copy of my art book and it is gorgeous!! But there were some things that printed a little too dark, so I had to lighten them up and resubmit it. Now I just have to see how the changes turn out. Other than that it looks perfect, and if the dark pages print like I hope this time, I will be sooo happy! I'm excited for when I get to show everyone, because I'm really proud of this collection! :)

I'm working on an ACEO now. I haven't done one of those little paintings in a while. But I'm going to do some now, continuing both my animal and dragon series. So look out for some ebay ACEO auctions and the pre-orders for my book! :)
