Through the Leaves by Chromamancer Through the Leaves by Chromamancer
Alternate title: Butterfly Snoot Boop Blep
This started as a quick painting exercise, since I want to improve my rendering and basic technique. The sketch had a lot of potential for interesting lighting, so I figured it would be a nice practice piece.
It was fun to make something a little smaller in scale than my last few pieces, and I really enjoyed working with the color scheme, like usual. ;)


Also, thank you to :iconneotheta: and Kazzy for some tips and feedback, when I was working on it. :D

I like the post and overall feel. It has the predatory stance, like the dragon is poking its head through the brush while hunting and is focusing on its prey, ignoring the butterfly that's decided to land on its nose during that time.

Of course I do.
You should check out your notes. I promised a short on your last piece, and it's done. Sent a link straight to you so you'd have first dibs ;)

Such a cute little blep. The eyes look a little flat as the main center focus, some speckles of yellow in the eyes wouldn't have been out of place to accent them, or even little flecks of blue since you've gone with cool shadows.

Thanks! I'll try to add some little light reflections like that, in the future.
That sounds like a really fun idea, and a good way to improve the detail in the eyes. :D
