Playing with fire by Melimaiel Playing with fire by Melimaiel
So, this is my second try to draw a salamander - a mythical creature related to fire. I like the his facial expression - quite mischievous.

I had a lot of fun when coloring it, but now I am almost empty for watercolors, which means that I`ve to travel to the nearby city in order to get the right colors U_U Maybe I can order them in the bookstore? mhm...

I added the leaves, because I spilled quite a large amount of permanent ink on the lower part of the picture X_x I am sooo clumsy, you don`t want to know how my fingers look right now.

Well, hope you like :hug:

Materials: micron pigma pens, watercolor, watercolor pencils and black indian ink
Time: +/- 20 hours or so...

Lines:
Salamander no 1

Well, I am not a big fan of ordering art stuff online. Have made some bad experience with it. And I kind of like sneaking around in an art shop :heart: In additions it`s nice to be able to talk to people that can give me information and advice on the material :)

But thanks for the links, might consider it ;)
