Economist dragon

Here is a small economist dragon; a random inspiration but an idea I had in mind for Pepper&Carrot about the ones who rule "The Market". I'm playing here with the stereotype of the "greedy red dragon" (more often depicted on the top of a treasure of gold and inside a cave). The drawing was ready on my digital sketchbook and I spent the afternoon to color it for testing workflows. I was looking for a gouache type of rendering I could do quickly enough for episode 32. For my constraints, I wanted to keep a subtle line-art and to not over detail part that are not into focus. This experiment was also just an excuse to play with Krita and take a break while I still work on other things that require mainly just a keyboard.

I like how the economics newspaper is a scroll.

But somehow the dragon cheek looks strange.

Thanks! Yes, maybe it looks inflated and a too hard surface. During this expression of surprise; something with the skin more relaxed could work better.

Très joli ! On a l'impression de voir un personnage de Blacksad :)

Wow ! Merci, c'est un gros compliment. C'est une des rares BD franco-belges que j'adore sur tous les plans: mise en scène, ambiance et colorisation, jeux d'acteur, écriture, design, cadrage, etc... etc... Un monument !

May be use business clothes from 16th or 17th century France or Netherland for more medieval style.
