Hey people! Long time no see, been really busy with things other than drawing...

...anyways, I've finally managed to finish this one! A simple conversation between friends about dragons became this, how would look the miniature of a dragon...the Bonsai Dragon ;) The coolest stuff was to design the dragon and to think on the background story, I just love when funny things happen =D

20% pencils on paper, 70% Painter 11, 10% Photoshop CS3 for adjustmensts.

Full view or download is extremely recommended =D Tell me what you guys think of it, okay?? I'll really appreciate it =D

Cheers to everyone!!

Sounds a possibility huh? It's open to all interpretations, but I prefer the happiest ones =D

Thank you for your words mate!

Reminds me of an idea I had for a Smirnoff add in the late 90s. The dragon in the bottle looking at a gentle little pooch.

That should look really cool if you managed to make it...maybe some striking quote? ;)

I might give that some more thought, it was one of my favourite ideas at the time:). I have a lot on my plate right now maybe next year some time I'll develop it further.

Don't hold your breath, I have so many ideas and no time as I said. I will remember to show you if and when anything comes to fruition:).

Ooh, que gracinha!
O trabalho ficou incrível e é extremamente original.
Só não sei o que pensar dessa união. Um drachorro bonsai?

haha vc n vai acreditar na mistura q foi pra criar esse dragaozinho... foi uma mistura de bonsais (a árvore em miniatura mesmo), cachorro-salsicha, Wyverns e Tarrasques (procure no Google q vc vai ver xD)

Td isso pq uns amigos meus começaram a falar sobre dragões, e chegaram a falar de dragões em miniatura...aí eu falei: é tipo um dragão bonsai né!?
Todos nós caímos na risada...e aí surgiu a ideia de desenhar um =]

Q bom q vc curtiu Helen, fico feliz por isso! Espero q goste dos próximos q virão!

Abraço! :hug:

Foi realmente uma ótima idéia!
Quem sabe mais tarde eu também não crio uma gata jasmim ou um jaguar cerejeira? :D
Bem, então vou estar aguardando pelos próximos que virão. Bjs.

I dislike small yappy dogs, so seeing this is quite a relief.:XD:

Lol great! It seems that someone's gonna have a minidragon as well ;)
buckymcnasty's avatar
I'd be more than happy to have one, I'd feed it with Chihuahuas. The whole town is lousy with them.

LMAO

Maybe you'll think different of chihuahuas when you'll see one of my future drawings ;)
