Green Dragon by Elfessa Green Dragon by Elfessa
Green Dragon - is the product of the reading the books about Dragon Riders Of Pern by Anne McCaffrey and liked me view from my window, when summer sun shines through tree leafs.
Work made in Photoshop CS2 in 2007
Here link at some WIP:

and commentary:
Usualy I draw a pensil sketch in the begining, but in this work I start without it strately in photoshop and it entail numerous corrections in process. Especialy it related dragon. When I start to draw him, I realise that there were not enough place and change size of canvas. Tnen I didn't like the proporcions and crop picture. Well that background, dragon and girl located in different layers. I change design of dragon untill it satisfied me. But checking picture composition & anatomy by reflecting it I notised that dragons muzzle made with wrong perspective & girls legs lockated ungracefully. I correct it & add some light rays & flying butterflies. At the final stage I add more colors, depth, details. So, here U R

you got the bow right! That makes this picture so much more awesome. Too many fantasy pictures have the people hold the bow in the most ridiculous fashon

I LOVE the Pern books! My two boys just began reading them for homeschool English.

Beautiful rendering of a green dragon.
