    Fire and Ice: Dragons

    "Persistence Wins the Day"

    .005 micron, Prismacolor Marker and white ink.

    Fire and Ice: Dragons

    Yes, they are getting it on.
    This is the clean, edited version. The original is mature and probably not suitable for CA.

    Looks like the blue dragon is kinda spread eagle waiting for some red dragon love.

    Very nice colors! Are they fighting..............or "getting it on"? I would say also to add some texture into the rocks, they are as smooth as the dragons are, smoother actually. Some varied line weight's would also help the dragons to have more volume. Otherwise, very nice!

    With a title like "Persistance wins the day?" They are totally getting it on.

    I mean, look at the expression on that red dragon...that dragon's one smooth operator.

    Really incredibly nice design work on the dragons. Just beautifully done. That said, everything is equally bright -- some contrast would do wonders to bring some pop to this tender moment in dragon mating rituals.

    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

    Yes the dragons are "intimate", in fact there's an adult version; this is just the clean rated one (edited).

    the more contrast I added to it the worse it got unfortunately, and it blew the colors out so I had to settle on this

    As far as line weight goes, I usually prefer to use crow quill to get varied lw's, but the inks I use always tend to bleed or smear (and I've tried a number of different inks) when I use prismas because of the alcohol content of the markers So this round I went with microns since they don't go "OMGSMUDGE" when I color over them.

    Technically it's very strong, maybe the best piece of yours that I've seen.
    Content-wise it's creepy as all getout, but whatever floats your boat.

    Elwell: As far as the first comment, I appreciate that I spent several weeks on it- something I hardly ever do because my patience is rather lacking and I tend to get fed up or lose interest.

    I can see how some people would find the idea of anything procreating as creepy or obscene/vulgar, but, I just consider it a part of nature- even if it is in fantasy land. I did once come up with spore dragons who'd breed kind of like corals; I find that idea more creepy than internal fertilization however.

    I think the "bra" markings on the female dragon are what pushes it over into kinky.

    LOL
    Wow, you know, I didn't even realize that. I just meant it to be a black bib patch like you find on birds and certain species of fish XD
