The Red Sea Dragon

Hello everyone and welcome!
Today I would like to present you my latest journal - The Read Sea Dragon.

I have done quite a few dragon journals so far, but this one has a special twist as this is a water dragon and it is presented in a way as if he is swimming in water. I particularly liked how the air bubbles manifested in the progress of my creation. I fantasise as I go and many of you know it already. These little bubbles appeared unexpectedly when I wanted to add some sparkle to the journal and found these matching blue cabs in my supplies. 


This journal was made as a custom order for a very interesting client. Her daughter is a little bit colour blind and she doesn't see dark colours. Therefor the journal was supposed to be made in bright and vivid tones, with a lot of visible colour changes. I also decided to add a lot of different texture to water, so if there would be something she wouldn't be able to see, she would definitely be able to feel all the waterfall of textures, smooth and patterned. Anything you want. 

The second favourite element that I really really like is how I accidentally placed the golden elements in between the feathers of the dragon's wings, but when they were all placed, they started to look like packs of little golden fishes that all came to see and meet the dragon. Particularly because the little golden elements were previously a part of the chain, so each and every one of them has a little eye-hole :) What a wonderful coincidence. So I had no choice but draw little spiky tails behind each golden element to make them look like little fishes completely. 


I loved to work on the smallest details of the dragon's body. The journal is only A6 in size, so the little dots and swirls are less then 1mm in diameter. 
Also, I think that the combination of bright and deep reds merged with the teals and purple-blues are contrasting beautifully with the golden accents on the dragon's body, wings and horns.
