Unleash the Dragon

This is a picture I drew a while back of a dragon. At the time I was going for a more Asian inspired dragon and less 'realistic', hence the stylized smoke coming from his mouth and flames...and the semi goatee thing he has going on. Don't really know why there's a goatee or why there are in eastern dragon depictions...but whatever...just threw it on anyway.

When I was finished with it, it looked rather plain, then I thought to myself, it would look cooler if he had scales....So I drew those on as well as the snake-like markings on his back. Then the wings looked awkwardly drab, so I stippled them to give them at least a little texture. I think all things considered, I was happy how it turned out. And the usual...Picassa...'I'm Feeling Lucky'...but this time, I resized it so it won't be as big. For one, it took a while to upload the other pics, and two, it should be easier to see the whole thing while still being large enough to see detail.

@ DTW: Man I wish...I can't even get my graphic novel idea off the ground. And it would help to have some real professional artist's opinions, but you know how that goes...

@ wonder.woman: Thanks...much appreciated.

@tystarr: I appreciate you coming by. Yeah took quite a while...but I definitely have others that are way more intense...I'll be posting those soon.
