This was a commission for www.masterzdm.com for a player's rainbow colored dragon character, Yao Chi.
Because I get so many questions about it: This artwork is not to be used or reproduced in any way without my express permission. It was created as as commission for someone else and as such is not my own character. Please respect the original character creator and my own wishes.
It is a very interesting mix between a Western Dragon and an oriental Loong- a chinese dragon.
The more I study it, the more I see- shadows of the claws, Wing arms that actually look like real appendages. You somehow combined great realism with fantasy fun. Even the OTT whiskers seem fine when you just study the whole picture for a while!
awesome. i have a female rainbow dragon as a main character for a book i'm writing, but i have such a difficult time finding a color scheme that works for her. might i have your permission to use this as a reference? i would give full credit for it, of course.
If I knew how to put you in touch with the character's owner, I would consider this, but the truth is, it's been years since I did this commission and I don't know how to get in touch with him now. I'm glad you like the art, though! XD
