The Faerie Dragon sketch on the left was done for a basic class with a carbon-trace method for the base outline, then detailed, colored, and shaded with colored pencils. Then the black sections were inked for greater "pop" and contrast.

The Faerie Dragon image on the right was done for an Adobe Illustrator course. The hills and sky background were done as a single gradient mesh, then layered with the two castle shapes, and finally the Faerie Dragon itself.
