Dragon Library by SangzHime Dragon Library by SangzHime
I did this picture for the art contest at the anime convention. I got 3rd place for Original art section.

I found this piece to be very challenging for me because:
- This is my first competition work
- This is the first time drawing Dragon
- It is on A3 size paper
- Books, there so many books
I was also working on my school assignments at the time, I carried A3 sketch book with me everywhere. I work on this piece while I was waiting for my tutor, during lunch and any class break I can get.
I spent so much times and effort into this artwork (may be even more than my Multimedia assignment)

I am quite please with the result though. :nod:


edit: 21/04/08

*I re scan the whole thing and joint two part together now the pic is complete. I upload the bigger version so you can see all the datails Please full view.*

Anyway, this pic base on my original character from my very own comic (concept/plot everthing in progress). Done with: Copic Marker, Castle artist pen, watercolour, ink and acrylics.

Characters & Art Sangchan Suwannasorn.

Lovely work! There's a lot of interest and detail in this. :) I particularly like the figure, the pose and anatomy are great and the costume is cool. :D

Thank you. :D I did spend lots of time on the foreground. You can probably tell I got lazy with the bookshelves at the back. ^^;

Well, you can't have detail everywhere. :lol: Actually I think it's a good idea to have things in the background have less detail, it shows that they're further back.

Nice work on all the details. I can see that a lot of time and effort has been put into this artwork.
The only thing that isnt right is the perspective of the books on the background, but dont worry its not the first thing people see.

You have EVERY right to be proud of this piece! I'm totally in awe! I sincerely hope you won that competition! To say that's the first time you've drawn a dragon, it's incredible! It really is. I would have sworn you'd been drawing them for years! You did a fantastic job. And those books must have become really annoying after a while, but I'm glad you stuck with it.

I like the background actually. I think it adds more depth to the piece. The picture is very crisp and beautiful and solid and detailed. Everything a drawing should be, while the back looks slightly faded and wavier. It looks like it's behind the picture rather than a part of it and that adds so much more to the picture, in my eyes, than if it was done the same as the rest.

The fact that you did this with traditional media- and with marker is amazing! All of the details are really superb; and I love the various shades of color that you worked with! Both the character and the dragon look great; I love the way they're positioned on the pile of books :heart:
