So I’ve had this idea for a few years now, but never had a valid reason in my mind to bring it to life. It’s been in a brainstorming list on my phone for a while (still is) and made it into little thumbnail drawings in my sketchbook several times, but I’ve always passed on it. There’s a call for tiny dragons on Art Order for a new book, so I figured, what the hey. Gives me an excuse to paint it and maybe I’ll get in the book. And if I don’t, well, I’ll have another painting for IX in October. The only problem now is, will I finish it for the deadline? I suppose so.

So here’s a time lapse gif of the work involved in getting this idea figured out. It’s not finished yet, but I thought I’d give y’all a sneak peek before it’s finished. Those flat discs will be coins. I gotta make up all kinds of fake antique coins. Eep. I’ll update this to the finished drawing next week.

Have a great weekend!
