Or Vovochka...for my own amusement x'P

Drew him for my bf - him as krokodil lol. He asked for it! But he is the complete opposite to such gangster qualities though :XD:;;
I'm happy with this - I drew a crocodile from a photo for one of my classes, and the next day I was able to draw this without reference :'D Probably looks more Dragon-like, but keeping the photo in mind, I can pay more attention to details. Well, in the case of crocodiles, maybe. The anatomy isn't perfect at the neck/chest area (my favourite place on the body too ffffff...)

Lineart can be seen here -->…

Drawing reptiles/dragons is a lot of fun in my opinion, but time consuming because of all those scales etc. and I love all the details in this one. Those scales, sharp lines, and details on tail, arms and head are just awesome. I always have problems drawing arms, but you did it great - I wish I could draw like that. What did you use to color it? Your technique  is very nice, I am always afraid of using colors in traditional art.

Yeah! Dragons and reptiles are probably the only time I can be original :'D..
Thanks that you like it! I didn't intend to put the scales on, because I was afraid it would ruin the drawing.. so I drew just a few - best of both worlds I guess.
I suppose I put a lot of detail in this because it was a gift. Maybe if it was for fun, it wouldn't even be coloured, ha! I have problems drawing arms too.. especially near elbows, blah. I used Copic markers to colour. I should have used another green to tone it more, but again, i was afraid of ruining something.. the pants already stand out too much because of the colour i chose xD..
I was afraid too, but copics are amazing.. it's like painting, but a drier medium - it forces you to work quickly. It's really fn using it actually.. I'm still learning things, but it's a good medium to use

The webbing between the fingers should be more pronounced, but other than that, your eye for detail is keen!  Excellent work!

Yeahh I went an drew it before bothering to look at hands, but figured it's anthro/humanoid anyway so i'd get away with it for something like this lolol. and thanks!
