CM: Swampy Walk by Leithster CM: Swampy Walk by Leithster
A commission for :iconkuro-hiryuu: of her characters Fyner and Osira. c:

This suprisingly didn't take very long to color, but it was a lot of fun!

I've decided that from now on, I'm going to try to push myself to draw more detailed backgrounds.

I hope you like it!

There really is nothing random about the lovely pickle who produced this art. I am really liking this artist's style, more and more. She is becoming an expert dragon drawer! This swamp scene layout, and the characters are awesome. She definitely should continue to do more backgrounds, she is getting better each time! I really like this swamp though, the trees, the moss, and the lilly pads.
I would encourage you to put some more shades in the water, and darken the background more. Putting more color over color will help you get a richer finished result without having to press so hard on the paper.
You can do the same with the characters too, also try blending them with odorless turpinol and a small brush, if these are the waxy type, if they are the pastel or chalky kind, get a blending stick, they are cheap and work great! Keep up the great work!!
What do you think?

This is a very nice drawing! It is colored very nicely and cleanly! It is very appealing to the eye.

You placed the dragons perfectly on the paper. I know both dragons together are really the focal points, but to me the blue dragon stands out more. The dark coloring and bright lighting is really a great way to emphasize the focal point in the drawing.

Overall this is a really great drawing :) I would have colored the purple dragon a little darker to sort of balance it out so that they both stand out equally. But otherwise, this drawing really makes me want to keep looking at it! So colorful! Great! :D
