Well, I happen to love dragons (hence my MG book about dragons), and my husband's a fan (hence his attempted theft of my crocheted dragon). So I decided to try my hand at Dragon Drip Art. This post is to show off the results because, well, who wouldn't want to see dragons?
This was my attempt at a Chinese-style dragon, inspired by my Koi artwork. Although, apparently, if a dragon only has two legs it's technically a wyvern. I guess some people get all in a huff about things like that. I, however, think of my pretty little guy as a dragon.
In some ways I actually liked him better before I added the crayon bits. I was a little sad that the red marker didn't really come through into the final product. Pre-crayon version:
Once I'd done my Chinese-style dragon, I decided to try my hand at a more traditional style dragon (at least in these here parts). I really liked the Chinese dragons scales, but I was afraid adding scales would have made the artwork too busy. Here she is:
And, if you're curious, here's a picture before I melted the crayons:
It was a little dark in the hallway where I had my drip-station set up, so it's a bit shadowy in that last picture.
So there you have it, folks: Here there be Dragons!
