WIP: digital drawing

I'm enjoying this week-end back from vacation doing DIY on my tablet, desk and stylus. And, in order to test the new setup, I started this drawing (not related to the future episode). I'm curious: what color would you choose for this big sleepy dragon?

Red is always a favorite, but that's my history with D&D talking. :)

I have zero artistic talent, but I would go for a dark, cold color (dark grayish blue). The reason is that when sleeping/hibernating, the body temperature drops - especially for a fire spitting dragon. I would also consider adding smoke puffs in spelling "Zzzz..." coming out of its nostrils. I would like to use this opportunity to thank you for all your work in improving open source software.

maybe combination of a dark shade of florescent green and oceanic blue would go well.

There's a bit of a Smaug vibe going on here, so going in that direction red could work. Personally I'd go for dark purple.

Maybe a muted red to symbolize that the dragon would get aggressive but currently isn't in that state (yet)

White but have little purple color. R; G; B: (253; 247; 255). For extra danger, lighting early morning with orange and yellow ground from sunlight come in cave (almost time for dragon wake).

Yellow with small hints of orange and brown. The texture immediately reminded me of certain Discworld trolls - you can see why on some editions of Men at Arms front cover (some editions only feature the three main characters wihout the troll).

Corps du dragon en bleu et les picots en rouge.

Pink, obviously, with small green disks. Generaly speaking, when you don't know, ask us :)

Is the 'ground' going to be covered with golden coins, or a mix of gold, silver, bronze, grey, etc.? If the former, probably some dark colour. If the latter, then a soft, fresh grass green would be pretty.
