EDIT 2: It is with great regret that I add a watermark to the full view image. It's probably already too late, but I'm finding stolen copies of it all over the web. Respect for copyright is hard to find these days...

EDIT: This illustration has been commercially licensed -- which means if you use it without permission, you could be sued. ASK ME before using it for anything besides a personal desktop wallpaper, etc.

I had a hard time figuring out what to do with the background on this one, but I'm really happy with how the dragon turned out.

Sized for a wallpaper.

Do you think it would be alright if I used this picture as an example to show what my character will look like on this Role-Play I'm doing for Dragon Cave Forum? I promise I'll give credit to you in the URL name!

You should sell it at least as a photo if not a print on DA. I'd buy it for my wall. I just love this piece.

Woa! I really love it! Since I'm a young boy I'm crazy about dragons, and this one seems so elegant, but so powerful too!

It's an awesome work! Good job!

Can I use it as a descritption for a roleplay character?

An increadible picture. I am currently writing a story about dragons and other fantasy creatures...and when I was searching for pictures of dragons to base my design off of, this picture was by far the best one. I will not steal this pic, because I am not a thief...but know that this pic truly inspired me and helped me get a better idea of how to design my dragons.

So beautiful... Would you mind terribly if I modeled a dragon in a novel after this picture? Not exactly, of course.

Thanks! You can use the drawing as inspiration in whatever way you like. :) However, you can't use the actual drawing, because it's already been commercially licensed.

Good luck with your novel!

That dragon is amazing!:eyepopping: You know what else would have been cool? Putting stars in the black parts of the dragon so it looks translucent.

Hi there i am writing a book called ShadowTalon and was wondering this dragon matches my dragon perfectly. I need someone to draw or use someones for a book cover. I must ask for you to do this for free and if i do get this book published the credit will go to you for the cover art. please PM me as soon as possible :)

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I was searching for a dragon image to get a tattoo done and I ended up choosing yours since I find it very beautiful in design and I can totally use it for a symbolism that I have in mind. I figured you would like to know that. That some liked your work so much that he is actually getting a tattoo of it. However I'm not planning on making an exact copy, more like an adaptation. i will be changing the color of the dragon a remove the background.

If you like, I can send you a pic of it once it's done. That would be around September this year.

kind regards

Wow, that's awesome! I've always wanted to get a tattoo but I could never decide on -what- to get. I'm not sure there's any one piece of art I want to look at forever since there's so much out there to love. ;)

I would love to see a photo! I can even provide a background-free version of the dragon... if that would help with the design. :D

Lol, I know, getting a tattoo is a huge decision. Truth be told I'm having it more for the symbolism that I have in mind than for the design. So I guess that could be a tip, if you want to get a tattoo make sure that it is something that is meaningful for you. like a reminder of something.

Thanks for the suggestion of the image background-free. But truth be told and if it's not too much to ask for do you have a pic with the complete wing? I understand if you don't have it. By all means I don't want to sound pushy or anything.

Of course I'll send you a pic when I have it done, just remember that it wont be of the same color. The color is important for me.

Cheers!

Yes, I think that's why I don't have any tattoos. Haven't found/needed something that meaningful yet in my life.

I don't actually have a pic with the complete wing... it was cut off from the start. Ummm. I could probably draw the wing in for you? Although, if your tattoo artist is worth his/her salt, he/she should be able to finish the wing without any trouble. I could still do it though if you want. Uh, now is a bad time, but if you remind me in a couple weeks? :)

And change away with the colour! Doesn't bother me. :D

This is beautiful and epic at the same time. The fact that the dragon has the same color scheme as the world around it makes the dragon seem as though it is one with the world.

Can you maybe help me do that kind of artwork, fantasy-wise? I have these visions of dragons and people in my head, but it's hard for me to put it on the computer as digital artwork or even draw them. It sucks DX

Anniasha Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012
Mm, I'm not much of a teacher... just ask my brother, he practically tears his hair out whenever I try to explain my art technique to him. But when it comes to digital art, having the right tools and programs makes all the difference. Unfortunately, you have to be pretty serious about your artwork to make that investment, because said programs/tools are expensive. :(
