Fiery Dragon – Coloring Scales
Hi Everyone! Marika here with another card and another tutorial. Today I’m following this months coloring challenge, color ANIMALS, with an emphasis on animal textures, feather, fur and scales. Zoe likes to challenge us DT girls a little extra, and this time around she gave us the specific texture to work with. I got scales, and actually did a bunch until I settled on the one I made for this post, You’ll find them at the end of the post.

But first to today card and videos. I ended up choosing the Fiery Dragon, I colored him up before, I even have the honor to have my coloring being on the front of the package for the dragon! Btw I’ve used the digital stamp but you can also get him as a rubber stamp, and right now there is a great sale on rubber stamps!

I have colored Fiery in some gorgeous yellows and oranges with my copic markers and then added the scales with some colored pencils. I then made a smootching background in some blue and greys, I choose blue as it is the complimentary color to orange. I also used Hello Beautiful Chipboard Word and colored it with ditress paints in the same color scheme as the dragon.

Copic:
Y17, Y38, YR15, V12
YR07, YR18, V15

Polychromos:
Ivory, Burnt Ochre, Walnut Brown, DarkChrome Yellow

As I said I did a couple of test, playing with scales, I do really love them but they are very time consuming so decided not to reproduce them for video and go for the dragon instead. But I thought I share them here too to give you some more examples to what you can do for the challenge.
