Dragon for Killpants by kiplingskat Dragon for Killpants by kiplingskat
This here's part of my art trade with

I should take more requests and art trades. They move me out of my usual same-ol'-same-ol' sphere. ^_^

I must say, it's been YEARS since I tried to draw a dragon of any kind and I've NEVER tried anything resembling tribal patterns and decorations before. But there ya go: a dragon tattoo design with metallic wings and tribal designs.
All things considered I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Hopefully ~killplants will think the same...^^;

This is just gorgeous. Seriously.

I'm making a roleplaying site that ivolves dragons. Would it bother you horribly if i used this in my front page logo or my layout? I'll link it back. Please consider it. Thank you.

I always love it when people do tribal things. They just look so amazing to me, because of the lines they choose to portray a certain texture or structure of a body (When it's forming something, that is).

I really like the structure of this dragon. The mechanical feeling of the wings mixed with the strangely "organic" flow of the body just seems to match so well. This looks like it could make someone an excellent tattoo... Or t-shirt design. Pretty.

Holy SHIT that's awesome looking! O_O I wish I wasn't so squicky about needles, I'd go get this sucker on me faster than you could say Jack Daniels (actually, it'd take a LOT of JD for me to get a tat).

This is just amazing.

Think you could a unicorn in a similar theme? :bats eyes:

Welcome back!! :glomp:

Thankies! ^_^
Yeah, it's not as bad as all that, really. *has one tattoo already and contemplating another little one* I think the pain level was only up there with getting your legs waxed.....after the initial "Ow! Damn...that kinda stings..." you get used to it.

A unicorn huh? Man, you people are really pulling me off my beaten track. ^_^
Lemme see if I can figure it out, eh? ^_~

That may be, but the mere thought of needles sends me into a panic attack. I just can't handle them. It's not the pain, I've probably dealt with worse. It's just the needles. *shudder*

I'm a major sucker for Unicorns. Especially unicorns with wings. Mmmm.

YAY!

Maybe like reds and oranges/yellows etc (fire-ish colors) from lightest shade at the tail, to the darkest at the head... just at thought
