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.

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!

Cute! I like his facial expression. also the folds in his skin are really well done. He reminds me of the snake I'm caring for. :)

Is it just me, or is this dragon adorable?
I don't know I like dragons so this is a biased opinion but I love your work and this just inspires me to keep practicing my own art skill :)

 I really like his expression. Like he ate out of the proverbial cookie jar, or swallowed the proverbial canary, and just finds the whole thing amusing to no end.
 He looks really content, that's for sure.

This looks so cool! La la la la 

You kind of make me want to/inspire me, to draw some dragons myself. My favorite part of this piece is they way you added the light blue on the tips; it makes the dragon stand out more. Meow :3 

Nice job! xD

There are very few drawings of dragons that I like mainly because most of them seem so cliche but this is one of those that I really like--it has a Lord Dunsany feel too it--I like the textures and the flow of the line and its just darn cute.

Embodiment of the element which was chosen by your spirit out of which a work is formed is a very beautiful painting.

I always enjoy when folds and contours come together in a way I haven't seen before.  I see this albino as curled up in a big hot mess of himself - but I also enjoy the bit of mystery that I'm left with, wondering if there might be another wyrm tangled up in there somewhere.
  What I'm seeing as a bit of a goofy expression, coupled with awkward (which is not to say 'wrong' looking) biology between the body and tail leave me with a sense of this as a very playful image.

reminds me of an axolotl mixed with an iguana to make a dragon :P very marvelous work :)
