The Dancing Dragon by bluessence The Dancing Dragon by bluessence
Some of you might recall a pencil sketch commission I did a few years ago of a dragon and priestess.. I've received many of comments on that picture asking if I was ever going to color it. Long story short was no.. since it was a commission and it's almost 4 years old now.

But because of all the wonderful comments I was inspired to create my own version, with a new character, which was inspired by a story my sister was writing. So the girl became an Air Pirate and the Dragon got a few limbs...

but overall I'm happy with the stylized composition, and feel satisifed with my recreation of an overly used combo, girls and dragons, what more could you ask for?

Beautiful work here. How did you manage to get the texture for the wall?

I want to say it was some textures downloaded at cgtextures.com but it's been awhile so I'm not sure if that was the site.

wow.

I am SO glad your sister sent me a link to your art: this piece is amazing. Why, why, why can't writers draw!!!

But then again, it's kind of an advantage: writers get inspired by artists, artists get inspired by writers. Quid for quo (or however that line goes).

Thank you! ^_^ It definately makes for good team work, not to mention I barely have time for art right now, I can't even imagine if I was trying to write and draw my own content.

Wow, that dragon's design is pretty damn awesome; it's a nice spin off of traditional chinese dragons. X) Pwn, as always!
