The First Dragon ATC...
I don't do much by way of hand drawn ATC's, but there is an awesome swap up on Swap-bot right now and I really wanted to join, it's the "Illustrated Legendary ATC Series: Dragon." So, last night I sat down and tried my hand at it and this is the result. The reason I don't draw much is that well, it's not very good and to the trained eye you can tell that I am completely untrained, never had one lesson regarding sketching, watercolors, I don't even know the basic do's and don't's. But all in all I was pretty proud, I hope my partner will like it too.
I used pencil to draw the basic outline and then traced it over with a fine point black Sharpie. Then used a mix of conte crayons, markers and colored pencils for the rest. I titled it "The First Dragon" as it is my first drawing of a dragon ever. I used one of my fave tarot cards as inspiration. Happy swapping, until next time!
