Dragon Mage - 05-01-2008 - Traditional Inks, Copic Marker Gray-Scale, and Digital Color in Photoshop CS2

A walkthrough and additional close-ups are available: Here on Livejournal.

I finally got around to tightening this piece up a bit after lettting it sit for around a year and a half. :) It felt REALLY freeing!

Additional details can be found on My LiveJournal on the above link.

Lol, no offence but this dragon looks like a japanese school girl who just transformed in a dragon XD

*laughs!* Well I originally rendered this in inks and greyscale markers on paper before attempting to "colorize" it in Photoshop, so I'd never considered the Japanese school girl thing before. ;) The costume was meant to be more medieval, and I simply chose to make the scarf red to set the figure apart from the softer background colors, but I can see where you're getting that. :)

Beautifully done. But the head is extremely disproportioned to the body.
