Just a digital pen and watercolor study of Temeraire, from the books by Naomi Novik. Nobody seems to draw his ruff the way I see it in my head, so I thought I'd take a stab at it. He's a Chinese dragon, after all. He needs to look like it.

Ive never read the books, but I like this picture. It is shaded very well and just looks right. I love the detail! ^_^

So did you paint this an scan it or did a program do a watercolor effect for you?
