Starting on Adventure by sanguisGelidus Starting on Adventure by sanguisGelidus
Edit: I am so sorry for the re-submit!! D: But when I logged in this morning I constantly received an "invalid response", when clicking on my picture, so I had to re-upload it... It would be so amazing if the ones who faved the older version of this could re-fav ^^' Thank you! :heart:

---

Drake and his little friend are starting an adventure. :heart:

This is my part of the art trade with :iconsandara:. She wanted me to draw a little golden dragon, I could think of bg and situation by myself. The dragon named "Drake" stands for her little son, who is not even one year old and named "Drake" in real life! (This is so cool! :D)
Well, its still so unbelievable for me, that I have an art trade with her, because she always was my great rolemodel, I always wanted to draw like her. She was, who inspired me so much and it is such a big honour for me to have this opportunity! I am soo excited, what she will draw for me and how she will like the pic! :la:

I tried to make the picture look like an illustration for a children book, I experimented alot with colors, structures and lights, I hope you like it! Maybe this will turn into some kind of series? :D

time: about 13 hours
PS CS4, Graphic tablet

-- favs and comment are hiiighly appreciated! :D :hug: --

It's pretty cute in an oddball sort of way. A mice riding a dragon? What an unlikely couple.

Oh wow this very beautiful. I say this is different from the usual I like the way you have the all the objects that show the dragons size in the time of fall. I also like the awe and amazed look on the dragons face as its blue eyes just focus on this falling oak leaf, while the white mouse stares at the dragon, but off to the side stares at the split shell horse chestnuts. I think what brings this all together is the warm bright goldenrod colors. I also like the misty quality as it to me adds distance along with the water color trees simple but elegant. :D This is great and to me you could not have done better to :iconsandara: than if she did it herself, great work. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :+fav:
