The Albino by Adorael The Albino by Adorael
Happy New Year!!! I've started a challenge with Yuuza to make one or more speed paints every day until we make 100. This is my 4th that I liked so much I decided to finish it up and submit it C:

It's an albino dragon, the white pink color scheme has been on my mind for a while now and I think I may still draw a few whiteies :squee: For albino purists: the blue is not pigment, it's a stone/mineral/gem/whatever formation

This piece of work has excellent details and coloring with just the right amount of shadowing. I particularly like the way you have him coiled around himself. The impression here is that he is shy while trying to look mean. He knows that being an albino makes him an outcast so he tries to make up for it with a mean look. He's actually quite beautiful. This is a well designed piece of work with no junk to muck up the works. This would be beautiful in a book written for children. A child would fall in love with him

I felt you really captured the feel of a dragon in this work of art. Although true albinos (minus a few exceptions) would not have any blue or otherwise markings at all, I really enjoyed what you did with this. I can see also that you made the rippling powerful feel on the curves of the dragon.
This work of art is truly beautiful, and I would love to have a framed picture.
Although the wonderfully drawn head is probably the focal point for most viewers, I payed attention to all of the long and strong body. This work of art pays attention to detail, and I take pleasure in this.

I absolutely love this dragon ^^, White is difficult to work with unless you know what you're doing. And you obviously do!

Also, am I the only one who interpret this dragon to be lazily cuddling on a pile of himself? He seems so relaxed and smiling to me. It makes me happy!

I absolutely LOVE how it jumps off the page, the depth is amazing, and the softness of some line and the hardening of others really gives this piece a sense of movement.  Combine that with the color choice; very pleasing on the eyes in soft hues, and the pop of the turquoise, make this a fantastic piece!  Great job!

great weight in the dragon, and use of color in contrast with the texture of the primarily white character.  Lovely work!

This is one of my favorites. To show so much physicality and subtle emotion with gradient of white is amazing.

Love this dragon, that sleepy little grin and the way he's just flopped everywhere is very cute Meow :3 White is a difficult colour to shade properly for me - I usually end up making it look grey - but you got it just right, well done!
