AT - Frosty Landing by Panoptos AT - Frosty Landing by Panoptos
My half of an art trade with my pal meroaw!! This is their absolutely stunning character Gelida Tapia, an ice havlini dragon!
Wowowowow what a beautiful character to work with omggg, her colour palette is to die for. Her colours really emphasise how regal and powerful she looks.
I had a lot of fun with this one!! It's was so nice to just draw like... a big dragon again lmao. Actually enjoyed working on the background here, so it didn't take too long surprisingly! I'd still definitely appreciate tips and tricks with this background stuff though!!

I tried to pose her like she was about to land on the cliff there, hope that's understandable!
Thanks so much for trading with me pal! and for giving me such a wonderful character to work with!!

Ohhh my goddddddddd dude i fucking lov e this character and seeing her in your style and your art is making me cream myself this looks so damn good MAN FUCK
tHE POSE is so dynamic and i like the frosty setting! My only tip i can think to give about backgrounds is that backgrounds lose detail and definition the further away they get and become a bit blurry/silouhettey the further away from the foreground they go, if thats any help? because otherwise i fucking love how you managed to make something like snow, which is white and plain, look fun and interesting for the eyes

I love that cliff face, it's got a good amount of detail, as well as the snow. I can't think up of much advice for backgrounds except to make distant things, like far off mountains, have a bluish tinge.
