Forest Spring by Nambroth Forest Spring by Nambroth
A dragon pauses, mid-step, as it crosses a spring run in the misty morning woods. What does he see or hear...?

A commissioned gift from Azalea to Verdandi (I don't know if they have accounts here or not).

This is something I consider a "speedpainting", because in the last few years of my life the scope of my work averages over 60 hours per piece! Thus, anything that takes less than 10 hours is "speedy" to me.

Painted in Corel Painter using the acrylic brush.

The untamed forest, and the dragon tat wanders their in, yes this is awesome. You have even made the pleasure of given the background the golden colors of autumn, with a s,light sepia to it. The fact also you made the water look so real is just as awesome, and well done, a very fine work. :) :thumbsup:

A speed painting/drawing for me is anything that takes less than a month! Ha!
Regardless, this is quite lovely!

Did you use any references for the environment?
The lighting is very nice, I love how you translated the moister in the air by making the trees blurry so soon into the middle ground.
Your speed paintings sure hold a lot of information. I've been lurking for a long time hoping to commission you for a speed painting; Have you started taking them again, or was this from one of those cons?

Please keep sharing your doodles and speed paintings with us here on DA =)
