Orange Dragon by DragonsAndBeasties Orange Dragon by DragonsAndBeasties
So I recently decided to start getting back into other forms of art besides just sculpting. I have always loved drawing with Prismacolor pencils. I found my black paper sketch book and just HAD to color in it. There is something really intriguing to me about colored pencil on black paper. I like working backwards with the colors, and seeing whatever I'm working on slowly brightening against that background. The shadows are so rich and the colors just pop! I know this is just a simple little dragon, but I had so much fun working on him. Been a long time since I've really colored seriously, and it feels good :)

I was wondering if you would mind if I used my drawing tablet to draw a few of your sculptures as long as I give you credit for the originals??? I absolutely adore your work, it's simply intriguing!

I LOVE the dragon and he doesn't look like he would be very "simple" to draw. You are EXTREMELY good! :)

That is awesome!! At first I thought this was a patch embroidery. Or I also thought that your drew this and then cut it out and placed it on a black surface. I would like to buy some prismacolor pencils someday.

Awesome work!!

Black is always such a nice background to work on. With color pencil and especially metallic colors (paint specifically). Very pretty blending work on this little guy. Do you find that your sculpting experience helps when you're drawing?

To get that color density, you must have colored until the pencils were nubs! Beautiful color-blending and shading....I love this!

I have a ? So you start with pencil or Prismacolor? If so do you use white or just using the different colors. I need to know how to draw better with mine ^^

I very VERY lightly rough it out with pencil first, then go over that lightly with the base color of the dragon, and erase the pencil. The pencil will actually mix with the colors and make it muddy and gross looking so you want to get rid of it before coloring :)

That's so creative. I've never thought of coloring on black paper using nothing but colored pencil before. You've definitely inspired me to give it a try someday! And I think he is so adorable. You should consider selling him as a print. :)
