Dragon-A-Day, New Beginnings, Day 11: Back to Detroit.

05062016 - Back to Detroit.

Maybe they are lost in the backlog, but somewhere in a small pile of sketchbooks there are a bunch of sketches of this little guy. I even remember posting them at one point when I was trying to get his hips right, but I can’t find them and it’s making me crazier than sleep deprivation and pending airplane rides combined, so I need to stop.

Nevermind. I looked in the backlog and it was, in fact from January.

Sigh.

Dragon-A-Day, New Beginnings, Day 10: Five.

I tried to do a more anatomical (and three-dimensional) Quetzalcoatl than some of the other drawings I’ve done in the past, but I probably should have decided if he has full-fledged wings or not.

Dragon-A-Day, New Beginnings, Day 9: Grandiose.

Once again I am in a hurry, but I did not want to do one of the smallish, bottom-of-the-page, head-and-neck sketches I have been doing when I don’t feel I have enough time, so I went bigger:

Dragon-A-Day, New Beginnings: Day 8: Shadows of Night.

I sat down to draw a lot later than I had planned, and probably would have done more with this; my first thought was “somethingmajestic,” so I started fooling around with shadow and texture:

Dragon-A-Day, New Beginnings: Day 6: Outgrown.

The horns got away from me (as spiral horns often do), probably because I didn’t exactly set out with a destination in mind:

Dragon-A-Day, New Beginnings: Day 5: Up For Air.

Only briefly, though. Managed to do nothing more important than wash some underwear; the rest of the day was spent napping or playing various digital card games.
