Fire flower

Samicia and the fire flowers.

Fire flowers are a curious plant that only grows on the Scorched Plains, they are capable of actually emiting heat; the more white/yellow the flower the more heat it emits. The constant windy plains make move like they are indeed on fire.

This aparently is used as a defense mechanism as much as a way of comunication; once a plant feels endagered it starts emitting more heat which is also a signal for other plants to do the same. The accumulated heat is usually unbearable and the approaching danger flees.

Another acrylic painting, I was getting a little more confortable with the media, its very similar to digital painting, the mayor difference is how the paint behaves in different supports and while mixing with other color. I think I have another version of this one, I’ll see if I find it and post it too.

How to walk your dragon

Dragon’s are very active creatures, and you don’t want a hyperactive dragon near your breakable stuff, so a daily walk is a must. You can put a collar on your dragon but a leash is not necessary, dragon stick together with their walkers and families and enjoy to fly around them, making a leash almost problematic since it would tangle around you.

Always carry a big (and I mean big) bag and a shovel (there are some specially made for this purpose) to dispose your dragon´s droppings which usually are a one time but substantial amount.

Sup people! This was last year’s postcard I did for the year of the dragon. You can see how much I have improved in digital painting, so never stoping practice with  critical mind is a good way to improve!

Snow Flower

Snowflowers vines and seeds emits a glow for some hungry animals to eat them and spread their seeds, the absord huminity directly from snow and are quite common in cold weathers. When spring arrives in warmer ecosystems they become dehydrated until the first cold weather of fall/winter and restore them.

Walk on a sunny day!

Watercolor is a media that I never manage to get. I never tried it to much but the few times I did the result was weird… then my wife told me that apparently, using watercolors on cheap paper not intended for watercolors was a dumb idea. Guess what? She was right, and she made me a sketchbook for watercolor! This was a quick one, I’ll try to make more detailed things next.
