Would you mind me using this artwork for a role-playing site where this would represent me character? Credit will be given to you as it is your work as well as a link back to this page. Not the google shortcut but to this site on deviant-art where you posted the art.

My stepdad had me crop this a couple of years ago to have tattoo'd on his back.  Glad to have found the original artist!

Yep, love this one!! The Ice Dragon is amazing as well. ^^

I really want to draw a crystal dragon. Still a ways to go to learn how to draw crystals. -.-

Well I can't really draw anything that well, so it's no surprise =P

Oh, I know that feeling all to well. So much of what you see here on DA is amazing. But I know how it took years for them to become good. Years of sketching and overtime they got better. 

I recently found a great tutorial about art in general: How to become an artist - Tutorial. Made me wonder if it is not to late to begin again. Then I decided to cheat and continue doing 3D because I am lazy. ^^

This makes me think of my Dad; he always used to draw dragons. I lost him unexpectedly in July 2014 and when I saw this dragon I could almost hear him say how "bad-ass" it is.

Hey there, I think someone is using this for their book cover (without your permission)? The credits are even covered up.…
