“The Dragon with the Golden Mane” Illustrations

Imagine this as the starting point of a series of illustrations for kids: a caterpillar and a hedgehog went on the rainbow and blended the colors. Just to see how rain would look in seven colors. But over the rainbow they found a magical world where magical dragons lived. This is where I blended vivid, intense colors in the illustrations for The Dragon with the Golden Mane children book written by Alina Veronica Ilie, published at Sonia Publishing House.

I took on the challenge to bring to life the magical creatures with magical powers that lived over the rainbow. Each dragon was a world in itself so that’s why I chose a main glowing color for each of them. I intended to make them feel like they could fly off the page any minute to be your friend. All this with the power of color. And imagination, of course.
