Dragon Teeth - Ballpoint + by machine-guts Dragon Teeth - Ballpoint + by machine-guts
A really big dragon head with bared teeth, drawn in all sorts of ink with ballpoint pen being the main tool. Other medias include (+) tech pens w/ india ink, markers, Photoshop grayscale on the horns & neck, and a menagerie of other things I can't remember right now because I'm dog tired. White gouche perhaps? Basically I was just experimenting with something different for a change. Refreshing. :)

Drawn on bristol board, approx. 14" X 17". Prints available.

Wow. Very nice. Love the scales ons face. I feel there could be a little more motion in its lips, particularly towards the back of the jaw and more variation of teeth, but it's a beautiful image all the same. :) Great job on this one. ^_^ Keep it up!
