The dragon design is an ink drawing colored with watercolor and Prismacolor pencils, and it has gel pen accents.
The background is scrapbook paper of various types, as well as a bunch of different stones and shiny bits. On the left, the black, oval stones are dyed agate. On the bottom, the rectangular stone is what's popularly called "dragonstone" (it's calcite and septarian); the small round stones are desert jasper, and the large round stones are red jasper. In the curl of the dragon's tail is plain septarian. On the upper left is a red, round tiger's eye. On the upper right is an oval dragonstone.
Here's the dragon by itself:

Those are nice rich colours for the last gasp of Autumn, that is something I miss here the dramatic change of the seasons. We have a brief burst of colour in Autumn from the few non-evergreen trees and bushes then nothing until early Spring and the greening of new growth.
Thank you for your kind words. I live in a part of the country where we have a lot of different types of deciduous trees. It is fascinating to watch the colors of the leaves "cycle down" from greens to red-yellow-orange-purple, then dull into browns and grays. I wanted to capture a bit of that effect, just before everything goes brown and gray for winter.
