Listening: Atlas and Flutter by gollumfryingeggs Listening: Atlas and Flutter by gollumfryingeggs
Good pickled onioned grief, this was a very, very, very tiring pic. >_<

This is an Entry for RamenScotch Character Competition ramenscotch.deviantart.com/jou…

So here's the story. Atlas (the big blue one) comes across Flutter (a very young and weak in-bred dragon) she was wandering the open fields when she saw the big dragon. Excited she comes closer and closer, and cautiously begins to ask questions. Atlas bemused by her curiosity settles down and listens. She learns that Flutter is from a poor bloodline, which is why she is so weak. But despite her weakness she is a happy and kind, though perhaps a little dopey. Atlas in turn shares stories of the adventures she has had with her friends, and Flutter is fascinated. She wants to be like Atlas with big wings, and be able to fly all over Draconis. Of course she has none of her own. But Atlas promises her, that she will take her for a spin in the clouds tomorrow, prompting the expression Flutter has in the picture.


Despite all the effort I put it, there are still some... ahem anatomy problems, but for now I shall blissfully ignore it in favor of the pretty colours XD It was my first 'full' body scale job and I am (just a teeny tiny) bit proud of it ^^

All constructive crit is eagerly encouraged!

EDIT: Forgot to mention:

Atlas is copyrighted to :iconramenscotch:

And Flutter belongs to me ^^

Thank you ^^ :icondragonhugplz:

I really had fun doing this pic, despite the amount of work >_< But of course the more you put in to something the better it's going to get XD Accept a barrel, come to think of it >_> that just gets heavier but then again it's easier roll ^^

I doubt I'll actually place anywhere XD But it was fun to do :dance:
