Dragon Squirrel by PrismaticLily Dragon Squirrel by PrismaticLily
I created this because I wanted to make a gift for a friend of mine whose birthday is coming up. He reminds me of a squirrel sometimes and he loves dragons so I decided to combine the two.

The background was done with watercolours but instead of using a paint brush I used saran wrap and I am sooo pleased with the results! The squirrel was coloured with Premiere Prismacolor colored pencils on card stock.

And now:

My real commentary!

lol

Based on this I was wondering if I could commission some battle flag standards waving in the air.

For fantasy novel idea I'm working on.

I can offer $25 by Pay-Pall for every one you do me.

What medium do you usually use?

A dragon and squirrel is a VERY extraordinary combination at least to me XDDD But
I really like the colors, it looks like the creature is deep in an ocean swimming. The
coloring is very pretty :heart:

On acid you can see it when you close your eyes too, and is the tail a .gif or?

LOL, I have never tried to view it while on acid, but I imagine that you are probably correct.

If only I understood how to use gifs. Someday......Maybe.

Three cheers for color and design! I absolutely love the scales and the combination of blues and greens you used for this critter. Absolutely unique.
