The Dragonfly by Wazaga The Dragonfly by Wazaga
Weeee! Iím a dragon! Or actually a dragonfly to be more accurate (dragon + butterfly = dragonfly. Get it? soooooooo unoriginal ;p )

This was inspired by the colors of my outfit that I wore on Eid, and seeing all the beautiful dragonflies and butterflies that have been visiting our yard lately. One thing led to another, and I was just so inspired to draw this little dragon for myself. I even came up with a short fairy tale for her, yay!

I tried to do a perona versionÖ but it just canít be done. Iím a fuzzy eared blue lizard through and through. And nothing will change that persona even for a contest. So Iím sticking to my tiny colorful generic dragonfly for my entry.

Did I mention that I had loads of fun coloring her? At work even! Lots of people stopped by my desk to ogle at what I was doing. Kinda annoying, really. But I still enjoyed myself.

Hee hee, Cheeko looks so confused seeing my tiny dragon self perched on her nose :love: there is a reason why Iím so tiny, youíll see why when I write up my little fairy tale :)

for :iconcheeko-001:'s contest

I would love to say yes, but I'm currently working on my own story about dragonflies that I'm trying to get into print. I guess you can make something similar, but not this exact design.

but thank you for liking it so well. I do appreciate the complement. and good luck with your story.

Oh wow, Wasaga, that is so incredibly lovely and cute! =D I love it! And...man, I can see why people would be stopping to watch, because it is not everyday that you see someone being THAT amazing with traditional coloring! I can't even believe how well you blended everything, it looks so natural! The pose of your colored self is really fun and interesting, and shows off your whole design really well. The butterfly wings are gorgeous, and the fact that you don't have a persona is actually kinda fun and original. XD The pic of you perched on Cheeko's nose makes me giggle.

Awesome job, Wazaga! ^^ Gorgeous work! I think my favorite feature is the big, bushy-ended antennaes, and the way the subtle red parts counter the black and green.

My friend, you have pulled the concept of 'dragonfly' off perfectly- colorful, graceful, and a combination of fragility and strength.
Perhaps it is my soft spot for such kinds of flora and fauna- I am intrigued by all of the entries equally, and would love to spend days simply watching such beautifully imagined personas- but to give this my highest compliment, my friend- fascinating. Truly, utterly, and undeniably fascinating.

I am incredibly impressed with how you ladies continue to raise the creative bar with no end in sight. Then there's the execution bar also experiencing unexpected increases in momentum. What is going on here? Is it merely synergy or something more profound? Whatever, don't stop, please!

Holy poo, Waz. This is GORGEOUS! The colors are just --! And the design is just--! And the SHADING is just---!

Well, words fail me. :faint:
Suffice to say, it left me speechless, and I absolutely ADORE the doodle! You're right, I TOTALLY wouldn't expect you to turn into something like that! Does that mean this is both your "persona" AND "dragon form"??? What a situation! XDD

I LOVE the little picture of you with Cheeko, but the depth of shade on the colored portrait is just astounding. It's so much faster with traditional media, isn't it?

Well, I haven't updated the webcomic my old sig was advertising in almost a year, so I figured, funny as it was, it just wasn't appropriate anymore.

Have you read my current webcomic yet?
