A Dragon it is! I just finished reading a book of Chinese Myths and Legends. The IMA has a really great collection of Asian Art and I am trying to learn more about the stories behind the scroll paintings so I can give better tours. Dragons are considered auspicious and you see them in painting, architecture, textiles and furnishings so a dragon it is for my latest work.
I used the watercolor background that I posted yesterday and then drew a generic dragon after looking through my art books. I used two different sets of watercolor markers and found out right away that one of them is drying out and that I do not have light, pastel colors. Where the color of the background shows through I have used the set that is drying up to achieve the light coverage. All in all I am very happy because I wised up about when to use the different sets early enough to get opaque coverage on the head and paw that are coming towards you. I really like some of the sections where the underpainting shows through adding texture and life.
