Quick color study of the dragon queen from my upcoming nosferatu novel. Done in Krita.
Inspired by WINGS OF FIRE, book 2.
OK, how come I spent two hours painting over a random sketch I drew months ago, but won’t invest the time in, oh, say, painting my own novel characters? Ah, well!
Dunno if I learned much here, but I sure *tried* a lot of new things.
Doodle of some of the mains from my nosferatu novel: the prince, his mother, and his sister. I wanted to scale it so he could ride his mother’s head in a pinch, so I looked at motorcycles for size reference. *shrug!*
More playing around with dragons based on pelicans and gazelles/horses. Kinda fun!I tried not to do the wings always symmetrical…
You might have to click to see it huge-sized.
Concept art for my Greatest Nosferatu Love Story of All Time novel; the aerie where his mother and little sister (both dragons) sleep. His mother’s hoard (or at least part of it) lines the shelves, and she sleeps on a nest of silver coins. You know. Typical fantasy stuff. :3
So for AAAGES I’ve been trying to render these dragons from my supernovel, which have bodies like pelicans but heads like gazelles/antelopes/elands/whatever.
Now I have 2 of these dragons as main characters in my Greatest Nosferatu Love Story of All Time novel. So I really gotta buckle down, you know?
Here are many attempts.
