I’ve been working on a Green Dragon drawing for the cover of NANPS’s summer issue of Blazing Star. There will be another of the spathe and spadix to do next. That one will be used in the article.
Here’s the photograph I worked from. I used more than one photo because I didn’t have a single capture that showed the plant and all of its leaves AND the ripe fruit cluster. I used this one because it at least showed all of the leaves.
Here’s the progression of the drawing in stages:
Finished outline of the green dragon with some of the shadowing filled in.
