Draco Constellation - FOR SALE by ShadeofShinon Draco Constellation - FOR SALE by ShadeofShinon
This painting is for sale! More information here.

Fanart for one of my all time favourite movies and one of the most underrated movies I know, Dragonheart. Every dragon fan should see it, it is a great movie in every way and Draco is, hands down, the best movie dragon there is. Everyone else can go home.
I just rewatched this movie and remembered why I loved it so much. Also, I found out, to my great disappointment, that this movie has so little fanart out there. So I decided to fix it.

People who have seen the movie probably know what I was trying to do here. I think Draco turned out to be a bit too much fleshed out in this picture. I think the color balance is good as it is, but I guess I could've made the constellation part a bit more flat. Ah well, I hope the idea gets through anyway.

I hope you like it!
And watch the movie if you haven't!

Media Watercolours and white ink on Cartiera Magnani Portofino watercolour paper
Time taken 6-7 hours

Draco belongs to whoever is responsible of the movie Dragonheart
Art c ShadeofShinon

Yeah, I know they made it but I'm still debating whether or not I want to see it. I skipped the second one, heard it was pretty bad.

I need to as well, I miss that movie ;o; 
Dragonheart just has a special place in my heart that no other movie can fill, it's just one of those movies you know? I watched it as a little kid and it made me so sad when I would tell friends and family about how amazing I thought it was and absolutely nobody knew about it. It deserves so much more attention than it was given <333

Ugh, I'm trying to find an AMV that someone made for Dragonheart using the song Headstrong by Trapt, but I can't seem to find it.

I love this concept. It's so heartbreaking, though. ;_;

And those stars are astonishingly great. O.o I agree, he's a bit too solid, but where Draco's wing merges with the sky is done beautifully. I love it all!

Pretty cool idea. And I adore the beautiful host of sparkling stars and galaxies in your night sky. White ink sure is a beautiful medium. Lovely painting.

Thank you! White ink is a very useful medium, but I think it needs to be used in moderation and only when needed. I think if you can make the same effect with paper white you should do it that way rather than applying white ink afterwards, just not to make the picture look too stuffed. I hope you know what I mean. But white ink is definitely apt to making night skies and stars.

I never saw the second one. I own the first one and I watch it every now and then. It's a very beautiful and well made. Draco has such amazing personality, his animation is amazing. All the gestures and expression and his whole being is simply brilliant.
Anyway, thank you!

Purisen aina onnesta, kun kuulen Sean Conneryn äänen ja hän teki loistavaa työtä Dracona. Muistan vielä ensimmäisen kerran, kun näin tämän elokuvan tai ainakin sen loppukohtauksen. Jokin siinä kiehtoi minua niin paljon, että se kiusasi minua vuosikausia takaraivossani kunnes törmäsin tähän elokuvaan uudestaan lukioni järjestämällä risteilyllä. Nappasin sen heti mukaani ja katsoin sen kokonaisuudessaan. Se oli hyvin nostalginen hetki ^^

Oikein hieno kuva taas kerran. Pidän erityisesti tuosta siirtymästä sinisestä ruskeaan. Se on niin sulava ;)

Hänellä on kyllä todella mukava ääni. Sitä kelpaisi kuunnella enemmänkin. Ja olen samaa mieltä, hänen äänensä sopi Dracolle erittäin hyvin. Yleensä en ole mikään animoitujen otusten dubbausten fani, mutta tämä on jo taidetta.

Kiitoksia! :>

Dragonheart. I first saw it when I was very small on the SciFic channel with my dad. This movie left an impression on me even at the tender age of seven. When I found it in the movie store years later and flipped the heck out. I watched it twice within two days. Haha.
