Drawing Steemmonster's Untamed Monsters Day-23: Drawing "HIGH PRIEST DARIUS."

in BDCommunity7 months ago

Hi everybody, take my modest welcome and invites to my blog. I trust all of you are having a decent day. I am a free craftsman. I am still learning; in this process, I thought about why not draw some Splinterlands monsters? And I started to draw Splinter lands Untamed Monsters series. I trust all of you will like my drawing. Today, I arbitrarily pick another Untamed beast from the Splinter lands. This time I need to draw untamed life summoner card, "HIGH PRIEST DARIUS." I want to call all untamed lovers, and also all Splinterlands players to come and have fun.


Darius is the highest ranking Priest of the Silver Shield, which makes him the most powerful person in Khymeria. He is incredibly old (for a Khymian) and wise. He never wants or needs anything that is not brought to him. His skills in magic are unsurpassed in the Life Splinter.


This is the progression of my work:


I was excited as I wasn’t drawing maybe a week one or two, I was doing other stuff though. When I was thinking to draw some interesting untamed character, I looked at the monstermarket.io, then I finally got which I was looking for. Oh, I forget to tell you all that I consistently use the monster market because I like their service. Recently a new cool tool added to the monster market by dev @reazuliqbal, which allows you to check the price history of any card. I love the monster market as they share 60% of their revenue.
So, I start my sketching with the face because if you draw the face first then it will be easier to draw the other section.

Playing with the Colours

Fun time! For the coloring, I used watercolor. I started with the lighter color, so I chose yellow, then another lighter color to paint the face, after that I used deep black to paint the other parts. This is very important as you know watercolor can flow so never try to use two or three colors simultaneously then it will be a mess. Always try to start with the light color that will be very useful for any watercolor drawing. I always try different colors although sometimes it gives a good result and sometimes total mess, as I am still learning so it’s okay for me.

Adding some more color's

Adding more colors is like adding some extra makeup to the painting. You have to choose the right color, and then what? Just go around the character you have drawn, I was trying to use my brush as smooth as I can. I might need more practice as I wasn’t smooth enough. I use two brushes, one is thick, and another one is fragile.

Finishing touch

Now come the finale and the most important part. For lighting up the drawing you have to go through the details and also have to be very careful as you are going to use the finest brush. I used a slow & steady method, where I used the color carefully, then the water, and waited for a while. Finally, I used the water spray when and let it dry. So finally it’s done.

Very nice drawing! I am envious of people who could draw and paint!

I really must get over this phobia one day by taking some drawing classes!!


Yep! You can take some classes or another way you can try yourself. The more you practice more you learn.

Thank you for the encouragement. I will certainly try to learn more.
