commission/birthday present for
Today is Roxy's birthday, everyone wish her well!
She asked for a painting of a black knight fighting a ferocious dragon (she also said she liked the color green, but I ignored that apparently 0_0) so using that and the five hours (plus some more) that she paid for I indulged myself.
I had a blast spending so long on one drawing. It's hugenormus size and heavy detail are something I can't find time to do for myself very much anymore, and I'd never think of doing such a traditionally fantasy artwork like dragon vs knight.
Because it's such a common scene, I wanted to throw in my own flair. I don't think I've ever seen a Cobra!Dragon before, so drawing inspiration from Jafar in Aladdin, I put this huge hood on this menacing creature and I'm pretty satisfied.
Also if you're like me and you hate drawing backgrounds... dont ^^ That's my new motto. Compose a picture where the characters fill the frame from top to bottom and problem is solved. Brilliant ^^
So yep ^^ Happy Birthday Roxy, thanks for spending your birthday money on me! I hope the drawing is what you wanted, I know I'm very proud of it. If you click 'download' the actual dimensions are big enough for you to go to walgreens and print it out. You have my full consent ^^
