The black Chinese Dragon, harbinger of death for important figures.

This young fella is so festive, though, I can't but help that seeing him playing around the skies when it's time for a bad ruler to go. Just look at him! He's brought the whole party with him!

Also, Halloween!

Colorations are based on the Baltimore Oriole: [link]

Prismacolors on colored paper, 8.5 x 11.

Well, the cat's out of the bag!!!

The dragon ';project' I mentioned some time ago was going to involve all the different major types and classes of dragons. THEN, I pair them with birds that share the same first letter of their name.

I personally am in awe of people who do fantastic marker work. Talk about unforgiving!

Meh, might want improvement, but you definitely don't NEED it. >.> I'm a nazi for Grammar and improper use of words... sorry....

meh, You do more than I ever could, which makes you plain amazing! *cheesy smile and both thumbs up* But in all seriousness, your artistic skill with 2 dimensional images is quite mind-boggling to the average person, I'd have to assume.... mostly because my own is mind-boggling to most people who've ever talked to me about mine, and that's without the coloring...

Thank you! I still need to improve my digital coloring skills, I think...

I've been drawing since I was 4 as far as I can remember, and I can make AMAZING artwork, but only rarely do I possess the initiative, motivation, or energy to break my inertia and do so.

I hear you on the 'breaking inertia' bit. It makes me sad that I do not produce very much finished work.

I can do good, but my art isn't usually as uniformly amazing. How long have you been been creating visual art? It's quite nice. *feels like a total brown-noser right now*

I've been getting up to since first grade when I decided that all the dragons on posters and in art looked DUMB and could be done better. ;)

Hee hee. Glad you liked it.

You know I thought I commented on this. But alas I did not. This is a stellar piece of work. In fact it's in my top five of my favorites from you... top 3 even. I am a sucker for Chinese Dragons. :p
