I finished the last two exercises in the book this week for my sketches. The first one is a Mesoamerican Dragon, which is a feathered serpent with a long body that can twist and cling to various objects. The serpent is as comfortable airborne, as it is looping its coils over branches of a tree. They enjoy accents of elaborate jewelry, tassels and gold decorations.

The second one is a Dragon Rider flying on a dragon. Not all dragons will allow humans on their backs. The few that do often form close bonds with their two-legged companions. The dragon rider team has many uses, such as an elite aerial force, a cab service, racing, delivering mail, and just for fun. The dragon rider may have a uniform that matches his fellow riders, or one that coordinates specifically with his dragon.

I have enjoyed this weekly sketch challenge immensely! I learned much this year, especially relating to drawing dragons. I feel I have improved my ability to sketch, to achieve proper values in respect to lighting, and to make time for art every week. More importantly, I had fun!! Thank you Deb for the challenge!
Happy New Year to all!
