Top from left: Rough sketch to decide the body movement and where to place hands and feet. It took about a hour. Center & right: The final sketch and clear outlines, respectively. About 2 hours for both.
Bellow: the finished drawing, 4 to 5 hours to complete.

Not happy with this one…I had a “bad feeling” from the moment I was painting it. I know once this “voice” just echoes in the brain, it ruins the entire process. But, I usually do not throw away any drawings when I’m in the middle of it.
I prefer to finish, wait 2~3 days and look at it.
Even do, if the feeling is not there; then I just left it behind.
I’m just posting it here, so that you can have an a idea of behind the scenes of the drawing process.

I decided to draw another one in similar body position. Check the photos bellow.

Top left: Sketch on transparent paper and later clear outlines on harder paper, about 2 hours. Right: Painting backgrounds, about 2 hours as well.
Bottom: The finished drawing. About 3 hours to finish the body and other parts

Well, I’m personally glad with this one. I think it’s interesting to compare the drawings and see that always there’s a way to improve here and there. It can be a hint for you, if you’re looking for a tattoo design.
In other words, you do not need to find the exactly desired tattoo drawing.
If you have something “close” to what you’re looking for, the design can be improved and pimped, so to speak.
Other dragons are on the way, I will be posting them later!
