KR the Dragon.

Day 17 of my sketch-a-day Month of May, and still on track, though they haven’t all been uploaded here – I’m afraid I’ve overloaded ‘skineart! This is a sketch of a little dragon model I bought a few years ago, looks like she came to life while sketching and is just figuring out the use of her feet and wings… and maw!
Tiger & Dragon Girl
3rd one on the Tattooed Girls Series. On this one I tried to show the constant battle of the Tiger and the Dragon in Asian cultures as balance of the Yin-Yan… The Tiger always represents the earth and the Dragon acts as the sky… No one wins.
The girls kimono is a collage of origami paper and used brush pens (Faber-Castell and Copic) for the colours.
So I got this new, odd sized moleskine the other day. Came in packs of three. I had to try it out. Seems to work alright.
What does one do with an artist’s block?
Try to see it from the dragon’s perspective, perhaps…
A friend suggested dealing with a block by drawing the wretched thing. The dragon was a sort of mindless excercise in drawing something seemingly ‘wrought’, but which came very easily to me…
