Dragonair in the Sunset by QuietCrystal Dragonair in the Sunset by QuietCrystal
An avatar for :iconinfusiousswift:

Was intending another use for the picture, but I guess it didn't work out, so this will be used as her avatar.

By the way, she is doing five features everyday, and checking out a lot of people's work. Feel free to drop a comment on her journal, and tell her. She might pick your work and showcase it to the world.

Edit: I played with the brightness and colors, as the previous look was pretty dull. I hope you guys like the new one's settings. And ignore the title, it's not sunset anymore XD

Playing with the brightness and colors definitely paid off in this picture! The pale pinkish color that you chose as the highlights really give a nice warm glow, which definitely adds to the overall softness of the picture and perfectly suits the elegance of Dragonair. Well done!

Thanks XD To be honest this didn't take very long. The outline was from a sketch from long ago. I just colored in 1 base color, 1 darker shade and 1 shine, then threw in purple, blue and orange layers to tint the body. Finished it within the hour (excluding the outline)

Not all good artwork has to take long hours to finish =p

But it does feel sad when a 30 minute artwork gets more attention than a 5 hour piece. :P

It happens, but hey, what can you really do about it. As long as it's a great piece of art, no one is really complaining =p Not all 5 hours pieces turn out great as well, and not all 30 minute artworks are bad right? haha

Yeah true XD But still if I knew the 5 hour artwork wouldn't have turned out great, I might not have done it in the first place. :P
