How have you been? Haven't read ya here lately, nice to see you
Thank you for the lovely compliments!
I did indeed sketch all the dragons out first using a watercolor
pencil. You can see some of the marks on the Dragon #2 back piece. I
did vague sketches, enough so I could see where I would be working.
funny comment from my husband when I did the lovers dragons...
I sketched them out, and he got up and went into the bathroom to
look. He came back out and I said "what do you think" and his
reply..."doesn't look too good"...lol. What a scmuck! But when it
was all done he was quite happy.
Because I wasn't in a hurry the lovers dragon took around 2 hours.
But I really piddled around while doing it. I was watching Saturday
Night Live and doing the design at the same time.
The leg piece probably took just as long, I was a bit stumped at
first and took my time to sketch the body. The back piece was done
the same day as the leg piece, and it took a about an hour and half.
Probably the most time consuming thing about the skeletal dragons is
that I would outline each bone then go back and fill it in when the
outline was dry. Then have to go back and fill in any cracks/gaps in
Personally, my fav. is the leg. I just loved the way the wings
wrapped around the upper thigh.
Thanks again and blessings,
