Clockwork Dragon by KeyboardingChihuahua Clockwork Dragon by KeyboardingChihuahua
  This is my first try at coloring with Prismacolor markers. So I'm still getting used to them.
 I actually made this in the middle of November, I don't know why I waited to put it up. Distracted, I guess.
Well anyways I think now I want to try making an owl in a similar style.
And I shaded the cogs and gears with blue because for some reason, the 24 pack of Prismas I bought does not contain gray. The only one that did was a specific cool blues and grays pack that I was not wasting my money on. But I've read a few times that shades of gray and black are only good to shade with in black and white drawings and when it's a dark picture, because otherwise they take away from the color. So maybe it worked out.
And this didn't fir perfectly in my printer so a tiny bit might be cut off. And I think the bulb or whatever light it uses to scan is dying or something, cause lately I've been noticing it's not scanning as good.
The holidays are coming up soon so I guess I'll wish all you children a Happy Holiday now. :D

I didn't even realize 2013 was year of the dragon. I don't keep up with the Chinese horoscopes that well, so I never know what year is what, except for knowing I'm an ox. Well yes indeed, quite a coincidentally cool way to end it. :D

This is really cool a little busy but very cool none the less the colors are awesome and the Japanese influence is really well portrayed but I like that you put your own style in it  I hope you do the owl

Thank you! :D It was my first time using Prismacolor markers, so I was getting accustomed to them while making this, I'm glad it turned out good. And, yeah, I've always liked Eastern dragons more than western ones, they can pose in so many more ways and are so dynamic!
And I actually started sketching the owl. :D

Thanks! :D
Dragons are always cool.
I've loved them since I was 7 or something.
And consequently, I'd say about 35% of the books on my bookshelf are about dragons or related to them.

Dragons are definitely the coolest fictional animal out there, in my opinion. I've loved them for a long time as well, probably since I was four. I have lots of dragon statues in my room. I can't remember if you've read the last dragon chronicles, I think you have, but i have a clay statue of the dragon Gadzooks, made by a friend of the author.
