Mountaintop Dragon - The Setting Sun by Kamakru Mountaintop Dragon - The Setting Sun by Kamakru
I decided to revisit this piece again because I never felt like I got it to where I envisioned it. For some reason it fell short each time I tried to 'fix' it, so this time I buckled down and shoved another 5-10 critiques and countless hours into it one last time. I think I finally got it - and I can say the small size does NOT do the details justice, so I've uploaded a few shots separately.

This will be printed at 3x6 feet for my convention booth display this year too. It's going to be epic x]

Tools: Photoshop CS6 and Wacom 5
Time: Hard to say since I started it in 2011. 40 hours? 50? probably more than that though. I completely redid the entire background on this last overhaul which took quite a while.

Each of your dragon designs have such beauty and grace to behold (I think this one is my all time favorite :'D ). Love its color scheme, and the breathtaking environment (beautiful & full of life!) :D I'm so glad I was able to purchase this print ;v;

Oh my thank you so very much! 
This is one of those pieces where when I did the first version several years ago, I wasn't quite able to make it look like the image in my mind because my skills were not enough. I kept going back, editing and updating it until I finally felt like it looks like what I envisioned. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for the support of the print! ^_^

Yeah, that's okay. I'm not going back, as far as I know. I put the anime and video games behind me as best as possible for Jesus.
