Welcome back again! For this week’s edition of Chroma, I generated this palette:
When I saw the colors of this palette, I was somewhat reminded of chīwěn (蚩吻), one of the nine sons of the Dragon King in traditional Chinese mythology. I had wanted to get a tattoo of it a while ago, and although I never got around to it, I had searched many images and drawn out designs of it. Specifically, it reminded me of an image of a chīwěn on the roof of the Longyin Temple in Chukou, Taiwan (shown below), though looking back, the colors don’t actually match very much.
Either way, I decided to draw a personification of this dragon in the form of a goddess/woman. I also wanted to practice the solid black color shading I had used briefly after playing the game Hades. I didn’t end up finishing coloring the background, but I hopefully will be done with it next week!
