dragon sally gottschalk fantasy illustration

Morning Stroll

Finally I got to finish one of my own Illustrations again and it has been quite some time since I last worked on an Asian dragon. So here we go. :) This one was a lot of fun to work on. I challenged myself to work with saturation to create contrast instead of color contrast. So the entire picture is done in tones from yellow to red and the shadow areas are simply lower in saturation. At the beginning I had a different design for the horns but found them rather boring and decided to go with ram horns instead….
