Happy Dragon

The start of a happy looking dragon. My dragons start out happy but then turn out grumpy so this one might very well end up the same way lol.

Started an etching today of a peregrine falcon. The eye still needs work to round it out but their eyes look pretty much black, so not a huge amount of shading to do, just make it black, easy. This has a lot of floofy feathers in it, so will probably take awhile to do unless we get some sun and I can spend all day outside working on it. I know its Scotland and it is grey and rainy a lot, but some sun would be nice.

Your comment about your dragons starting off happy but ending up grumpy = I think that would be me if I had to draw with an injury, as you are still doing! You go, girl, you are amazing in your determination to succeed and keep going :). Love the eye - fierce and strong.

Surely that is a dragon's lot: they start out happy, meet St George and it's all down hill to grumpiness from there. Oh we have lots of sun, sun and then impenetrable fog. Take your pick!!

I love your dragon beginnings--and that eye is stunning. My dragons have a hard time looking mean or scary. LOL I like your dragons. They are powerful. :D
