Coily Eastern Dragon by Nambroth Coily Eastern Dragon by Nambroth
Playing with some new paints, I don't know what I'm doing!

(Do I ever??)

A little ink and watercolor painting, full of experiments.
7" x 10" on rough 140lb.

The inks were originally designed for someone's tattoo.

He's for sale! [link]

Its a very interesting take on an eastern dragon. I've never seen one thats orange before, or that has wings that small. does it fly without its wings? or does it just use its wings in combination with its tail to steer? it would be very unusual if it were flightless, but your already bending the mythology. I like it a lot. You're very good with watercolors.

For some reason it's really reassuring to hear you say that you don't know what you're doing, and yet you ended up with such a lovely painting! It gives hope to the rest of us who don't know what we're doing X)

Every painting I do teaches me something! :) Not always positive things, but even the parts that make me upset are an education.

I like the dragon, but I can't say the same for the water colors (I can't tell what they are :P).

What do you mean? The entire piece is watercolors. :) Except the outline.

Oh sorry, I couldn't tell (this is what I meant). I was talking about the background, I can't tell what the colors are.

Oh! I see. I tried to make the colors very pale so that the dragon would stand out. :) Do you think this was a bad call?

Well, no (though there seems to be some blank spots at the bottom of the page), but don't worry about it cause it has nothing to do with the picture itself. I'm color blind, so I always have issues with things like this ^^;

This looks wonderful! I especially love the wings. Most of the eastern dragons I see are not depicted with wings. My family says that it's because they ride on clouds (I'm Chinese) but seeings wings on an Eastern Dragon is a nice transition from tradition.

Yes, traditionally I have seen them without wings, but the wings were a request from the person that wanted the tattoo. :) I am also guilty of adding wings to everything...

There are actually different types of Eastern Dragons, just to name a few, Wan Long 蜿龙, Jiao Long 蛟龙, Yi Long 翼龙 etc. these types of dragon all have different features, like the jiao long has no wings, but the yi long does. and if i'm not mistaken, wan long has got no feet and wings, so it looks exactly like a serpent.

BTW, the pic is good as it is! kudos! i love anything dragons, be it eastern or western ^_^

I love the dragon, his color, his design, the only problem is is I would use a more dynamic background, but I guess that's watercoloe for ya.
