So as a test for trying out my birthday present: Manga Studio 5- (I have found NO complaints with this program. In fact this will be my go-to program for all inking coloring and even comic booking awesomeness) I decided to try it out on one of my most details characters, and someone I have sketched since May but never had a chance to color it. 

The Orsian Earth Dragon God Cernunnos. Obviously, he comes from Celtic roots as his origin is based off the Celtic horned god Cernunnos. One design lead into another and finally I compiled all ideas ( horns and all) into one gigantic ( the character is over 10 feet tall) design and I'm more than happy with results. Character wise, he's pretty stern but shows some softer sides mostly to his vessel, Amber.  I want to have Amber ( Airmid) standing next to him to show size comparison- considering that Amber is freakishly tall for human vessel. His nickname goes by either "Big Scary Hippy" or "Moose" for obvious reasons.

Either way. Manga Studio gets a epic Cernunnos size high-five from me!

Not to worry! The symbol's origin is from an ancient celtic design. Now adays it represent the trinity and the symbol is a icon of Cernunnos in celtic mythology. 24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdf…
Its a symbol that has been around so long that the actually knowledge of where this comes from is unknown. Most druid depictions have this symbol. The most famous place that has this unidentified symbol carved in rocks and walls is in Newgrange Ireland where pagan tradition still celebrate the Winter Solstice. www.talismanesyamuletos.com/Ar…
As much as I love the Avatar LA and LoK series, The Celtics had it first. :P

Ah I see, what confused me was the little dragon of power you were saying she could crush people and everything.
