This is two singular images (from Mythomorphia by Kerby Rosanes) that sort of make a double spread as they're both dragons obviously. Often when there are opposing pictures with the same theme I like to make them yin & yang with each other rather than match. For the water dragon I kept all my tones cool with blues and aquas, blending out into white to give the look of frothing waves. With the fire dragon I of course used lots of hot reds and oranges.
Water Dragon - Julep, Lagoon, Indigo, Glacier Blue.
Fire Dragon- Red Berry, Carmine, Carrot, Tangerine.
I'm still not sure whether to give the dragons a background- and if so, what? Let me know what you guys think! I hope you've enjoyed reading about my colouring process and if this is something you would like me to do with all my finished pieces, let me know that too!
