Azul is the spanish word for blue, I made the name a spinoff of the sound, Azool. Mini painting of a dragon with a bad attitude! Would make a charming addition to a dragon collection.
It has been awhile since I have done a dragon painting. This started as a sketch I did in my sketchbook as I was writing out my art goals, which to be honest I forgot because I haven't been looking at that page! But I did decide to make it into a painting and I think it looks cute dispite the menacing look this dragon has. The name just came up when I was thinking of what to call it. My 3 soon to be four year old watches Dora alot and knows her colors in Spanish and English but still doesn't talk in sentences really. But I know azul is the spanish for blue so I did Azool. The sound also reminds me of Gostbusters with Zool.
A short update on the Epona I'm doing, it's almost done! I have been working on it steadily for one week and got a lot of work done on it then had to stop to figure out one corner of it. Epona has a stylized look to her face, almost Byzantine but softer. I have a hard time with faces but everything is in it's right place haha! I don't know when Epona will be done.
