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
What do you think?

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 have a bit of a soft spot for albino characters and I think you've really got the right look here! The blue tints are wonderful!

You never see albino dragons and usually people have a really hard time trying to get the amount of pale mixed with shading down. But I think you might have nailed it. :D Lovely dragon.

This is amazing, and not something I see often. all those wrinkly details, the soft shading, everything done to make the skin look so real. and the body of the dragon itself is interesting. he looks more slouchy than scary :3

Beautiful dragon. You can really see the weight of the limbs being drawn by gravity as they slump over the other curves. Great lines for the eyes to follow throughout the illustration.

Personally, I thought he looked proud and strong, and I can almost imagine him coiled around the Arkenstone, saying something like, "You have nice manners for a thief and a liar." Or "Come! Take as much as you like; There is plenty to spare!", although he gives off a more menacing vibe than Smaug the Golden, what with that grin, and the white glow of his skin/scales rebounding from the gold and silver about him. Very nice piece!
