Celtic Frost by drakhenliche Celtic Frost by drakhenliche
It's a Snow Day today. We've had quite a bit here in Southgate and since I work in Harlow outside of London it'll be even worse there. My boss already knows I'm not going in until the snow stops and starts to clear a bit so now I'm just enjoying relaxing in the warm at home with a nice hot coffee.

In honour of the snow I thought I'd upload a very VERY OLD picture of a dragon I called 'Celtic Frost' (in honour of the band) since he kinda fits in with the cold theme. I drew this for a friend of mine who has a site here www.geocities.com/mossrock1/ . He has totally awesome artwork and you should check it out!!
Sadly I lost touch with him back when I was seriously depressed and never managed to get the friendship going again after I got better :( (but then my 'poor little me'-ness when I was at my worst was pretty offputting so I'm not surprised). I guess people just move on.

ANYWAY. Since it's cold, here's a cold oldie!!! :D

Oh, and this was coloured with a mouse because I didn't have a graphics tablet back then :XD:


... and no fucking remarks about this looking like the warcraft frost dragon or I'll sic Blackjack on you! Since this pic was around way before then the correct thing would be to say the frost dragon looks like this! (I got so sick of hearing that off numbskulls on Elfwood).

Funny thing is, this was going to be a black dragon until I inverted the flat colours and realised I liked it better that way around :D

Oh jeez, this takes me way back. I used to be obsessed with this drawing when I was a kid. It heavily inspired this one dragon I used to draw all the time back then. Never thought I'd stumble across the artist on DA, lol. Glad to see you're still drawing awesome dragons. :D

Oh cool! It's kinda nice to hear it inspired some drawings of your own :)

heh, I sometimes feel a bit old looking at this picture. I still remember vividly colouring it (with a mouse, handcramp alert!) but then I realise it was more than a decade ago now.

Haha, I remember those days. Doesn't seem like that much time's gone by, does it? For me especially when I think about how I drew with a mouse religiously. xD I had a cheap tablet back then, but thought it was the most unnatural thing in the world, and actually preferred drawing like that for years until I got a Wacom. It's kind of funny that I remember drawing things with the mouse better than I do with the tablet. I guess it's because have no idea how I could stand drawing with mice for so long, lol.
