Temple-Dragon by nachtwulf Temple-Dragon by nachtwulf
A temple's guardian-dragon... and quite the source of hand-crampage, too. Done as a self-promotional thing, to show that not /all/ of my pencilwork is comprised of horrible asymmetrical monsters.

...even though I /like/ doing horrible asymmetrical monsters.

Original size: 4.25"x5.5"
Time: 3.5 hours
(And yes. I am insane enough to do this kind of thing on 1/4 of a sheet of manila tagboard. I have a /very/ sharp pencil.)

Amazing! XD What I love about your work is that you don't draw 'a dragon', you instead make it a work of art, using borders and intricate detail, you rock!!! :glomp:

That's a very gorgeous peice. Your use of shade and value are very superior. Each meticulous detail looks so well thought out. You have a lot of talent.

Oh wow! I love that, it's fantastic! Even tho' that hand looks a bit weird to me...I can't really tell why, it just looks. (I know, I'm not much of help here...)
But who cares, the whole piece is breathtaking. The yellow-ish paper was a good choice! :) (Smile) +fav

It looks kinna like a doggydragon! Like Haku (or whatever his name is)! X3 Once again, I utterly envy your border-drawing skills, and the anatomy details go without saying! *.*

I have yet to understand how you do this stuff on such a tiny piece of paper, however. >.>
