Chinese Dragon by Autlaw Chinese Dragon by Autlaw
TumblrYoutubeTwitterFacebookFlickr

I decided to do another digital painting in a watercolor / ink style for spring nearing. I chose for the Chinese Dragon because the associated season is spring if I'm right (;

The oriental paintings have such an interesting style and have a somewhat mysterious yet powerful feel to it, I tried to capture that feeling as close as possible here (:

EDIT : You can find a time lapse video of the drawing on my Youtube account here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfxswh…

Thank you c: !

The steps are indeed not very hard, the trick is to figure out how to create that aged and Oriental look :) The Chinese / Japanese artwork have such distinct styles. I flipped through quite some references before I figured out how to create the look as close as possible to the Oriental paintings x3

I guess he's looking down from the heavens, keeping an eye on the people on earth ;D

This is awesome! Love the details you put in there, those scales must have taken a lot of time to paint....
