Finally submitting one of my most favourite collabors with Khaosdog!
I did the lines, she did amazing job with the background and I've rendered that dragon. It was a bloody crazy work on that one!
And the scanner has totally disappointed me. I don't need explain how, right?

This handsome fella is on sale, send to me a note if you're interested in that original large painting!

I love this. It reminds me of a lot of I think Chris Scalf's work. Colours are brilliant :)

What an absolutely stunning artwork!
 I just love how there is such a stark difference in style and mediums, all overlaying each other and, surprisingly, truly suiting to the other. After being captivated by the sheer amount of detail on the dragon, I had to look closer before I noticed any watercolour at work here, and even then it still feels as if it belongs to the piece. In light of there being meticulous, fine detail coupled with loose, water-based paints - it's a very whole, and complete, work in my eyes. Never seen anything quite like it before.
 Brilliant, brilliant job you two! clap remake 1b

Thank you so much! It was fun but also stressful because it required a lot of "process thinking" to acquire that effect/OR to not ruin it. Right now I wish I could have given less yellow (reflection) pain on dragon's neck.

No worries! :)
 I can only imagine! The forethought that needs to go into a collaborative artwork like this... and I find it challenging enough planning my own works. ^^;
 Well it looks just right, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I can certainly see where you're coming from, but I think that amount of yellow makes the dragon look all the more present in its surroundings - namely, the fire.

Wow, this is amazing! The pink of the fire makes it almost look etheral, and your use of the watercolors with the sky are great. The dragon's a gorgeous creature too, beautiful piece!
