Ever had a moment in your life when you are trying to go to sleep and the moment you are giving in to sleep a picture flashes before your eyes or you get the best idea ever and you cannot sleep until you have at least sketched it?
This is one of those works. It was some weeks ago, or maybe some months, time really flies these days, when I saw this piece and I wanted to draw it so bad. I made a tiny composition/colour sketch that has been laying around on my desk ever since. Today I found the sheet of paper with the sketch and though that now I will draw this. And I did. All in one sitting. It was very relaxing and freeing experience. Nowadays I get more ideas that I have time to execute so I was really glad I could bring this piece to life.
The original idea changed a bit due to my experimentation. For a moment I thought I had ruined the piece but then I had an epiphany. In the original the sun was coloured and the surroundings white with some texture but thanks to careless experimenting I saw that it looked better this way.
I had to fight with the colours a bit since my scanner likes to mash all reds and yellows together but I think I got quite close to the original.
I really missed drawing traditionally. And drawing dragons.
I hope you like it!
