Red and cream by Mystalia Red and cream by Mystalia
Commission for :iconpsychopomp16:
Media used: black ballpoint pen, mechanical pencil, watercolors

I had some spare time today and decided to finish this. It might be the fastest I've ever finished something for someone else and i'm quite proud of meeting every non-existant deadline imaginable.

The funny thing about this commission was that the colors for this dragon weren't certain yet, so I was left to play around with them. The colors I was supposed to use were white, red and black, with red being the main skin color. So I decided to give her creamy white wings, a pale line of plating on the front and details of white feathers to the tail and back, to emphasize the color of the wings, along with a blendable shade of red for her skin and a few tiny details of black to not make the resulting picture too dark.

I would have loved to color a white-skinned dragon with red details, but it looks good this way too, in my opinion. I just really hope ~Psychopomp16 likes it. I hope it's a bit similar to what you imagined it to be!

Aw, don't sell yourself short, I'm sure you can dream up far more fantastical things than I can draw. =) But thank you kindly! I'm glad you like my work ^^

Thank you! It's not often I hear people comment on the strength of the creatures I draw, probably because of the soft tones I use to color them with. Glad you like it!
