Draw dragons to improve your composition skills. #Smaugust composition challenge. August 1 - 31
Sharing here in the spirit of Valentine's~
Arrios isn't exactly the hardened assassin type, he's too mouthy for that. And Laele doesn't approve of his career choice, but that doesn't stop her from supplying him with poison. They've got a strange relationship dynamic, but they get along well - And maybe mister tough guy killer isn't the boss after all.
This was a bit of a collaboration between me and [user10281] - I did the lines, he did the inks, then I did the coloring. I like his lineart a lot better than mine... XD
It was my first time experimenting with breaking away from my typical cartoony style and incorporating some features from their different ethnicities into a non-realistic drawing. Not entirely happy with Laele, but Arrios is all right.
Outfits are totally non-canon for the characters, but whatever. I'm an adult, I can do what I want!
Laele belongs to me, and Arrios belongs to my love, [user10281]~
