Oakleaf Dragon by Rowkey Oakleaf Dragon by Rowkey
A little camouflaged dragon hiding from you!  This piece and I fought a few battles over color (see the WIP images compiled in this Tumblr post), but we compromised in the end.  This one's another mixed media mess: watercolor, ink, colored pencil, and gouache on hotpress watercolor paper, 8x10"

Prints available here!

I love the fantasy/realism mix! I could see this as an illustration in Newt Scamander's Fantastic Beasts book. :D

I love this!! ❤️ Oak leaves hold a special meaning to me, so it's a treat seeing them brought to life in such a fun way. The plants and fungi look so natural, and our little friend here blends in so well; I imagine I could have walked past him on a hike! Love your texturing and warm fall colors, as usual. I'd love to read a little description of his habits, too.
Beautiful work!

What a lovely comment- I really appreciate it, thank you. This sort of thing inspires me to start thinking about a forest-dragon mini-book of some sort in the future! ♥️ 

And ah yes! This little guy was definitely inspired by all of the tiny newts running around in the NY mountains- I just moved here and had never even seen a newt before, let alone the ridiculous number up here. :'D

You're welcome~! That sounds like a wonderful book idea. :'D In the meantime, it's great to be able to enjoy your work online.

Oh man, I don't think I've ever seen a newt in the wild before! I would probably be so distracted fawning over them that I wouldn't get much walking done xD You've just reminded me of the wildlife I saw during a recent hike, though; right when I needed some inspiration, haha.
