The kiddos in the middle of the age range of my group get a lot of love from my art I noticed, so I wanted to do something with the babies and Bogū- I would have included Imari (formerly Khat) also, but she's undergoing a rework at the moment so I'm keeping her out of any art until I've figured that out. Its a bit of a downer though, its fun to show the size differences between the kids of different ages- as it is, I don't think it comes across in the pieces I have in my gallery, largely since the kids have a tendency to cluster up by age similarity. An exception to this are Bogū, Ikadi, and Fate with the little ones, the actual babies, because they need someone to keep an eye on them all the time. Vaquor could be considered a kid and not a baby anymore, but you could argue either way so I included him, he enjoys being with Bogū and Ikadi none the less so it makes sense. Anyways, Ikadi and Bogū are the oldest two, so they are responsible for the tikes (plus they like children, so that helps), whereas Fate adores babies and has sort of inserted herself into the responsibility on her own volition.


Side note, I have learned a valuable lesson from this, white creatures in watercolor is a horrible idea, I'm surprised Almond didn't end up smudged, or color changed to grey in the process of painting him.

    Painting white in watercolor is definitely tricky. i saw this tutorial recently from StephanieLaw on painting white you might find useful


    Also hooray for smaugust! Are you participating in the composition challenge?

      I will check that out, it could be very handy!

      Smaugust is my time of year haha, thoough I pretty much post the exact same content! I probably won't be, I'm usually behind on art here and upload slowly because I don't want to spam people with my stuff. If I finish catching up before the month is up, I might do a couple, but otherwise I won't.

    Love your dragon family. this is a wonderful, empowering piece with exquisite colour and the choice of colour is VERY well thought out, to bring out the most in the piece. Definitely have to get back to trying to draw dragons too. Thanks for the inspiration. XO

      There's a lot more dragons in the family than this haha, but this is all the smallest members as well as the second largest.

      I'd love to see more dragons aloud here, if you put one up I'll be sure to take a look Smile
