So in fun news, PD (for the time being) is going to become my primary art site! I've been on here for a few years now, but the low traffic made a different site a better pick for that title- but with the recent changes here, including the wonderful influx of draco stryx users (hello if that's you!), and with my main site having changed into something that I can't effectively use anymore, I decided to make this corner of the internet my home.
That announcement aside, I'm incredibly happy to be finally done with this - while it may have looked like I've been making things steadily, but the last art I posted was done in mid-April. I've been working on this piece since early May, and have put... 20ish hours of work into it? Since it features a new character of mine, I wanted him to make a good "first appearance," but between experimenting with the irridescence of his scales, doubling back on work done much earlier in the piece to fix mistakes that went initially unnoticed, and trying several tecniques to handle water with a partially submerged character before finding one that worked with my approach, the time I expected for it to take kept growing, as did the standard I held it to. The outcome feels worth it, though I hope not to spend so much time on a single piece again for a long time!
The dragon's name is Kamon, and he's one twin-headed wyvern from my story The Wyverns. I've already posted art of the other, Nolous, but Kamon is the protagonist of the piece. I spent a load of time on his design as well, but I'll go more into that once I post his ref sheet, haha. I affectionately call him my watermelon boy. As a heads up, a lot of the work I'll be putting up in the near future will follow The Wyverns and not Nest of Hearts, a different story of mine that currently is recieving some conceptual focus... however, I also intend to make TW into a comic, since it compliments what I like to draw - a ton of dragons. The first chapter of TW is up here, in the writing section~
Art and Kamon belong to me.
