Dragon Keeper by Taluns Dragon Keeper by Taluns
Update on some uni work!
This is part of my Data Vis/ Illustration module.
This is part 1 of 3 book cover designs. I chose Carole Wilkinson's 'Dragon Keeper' series, as it was something that was close to my heart as a kid. And hey, Dragons!
When the 3 covers are fully drawn I'll add text/typography and borders for the finishing touches. But for now, this is what I've been up to :)

Ping reminded me of a chinese girl I went to school with in year 3-4. 

Danzi knowing him was very tolerant; well; at least I thought so.

Asian inspired dragon? Weird but nice switch from your typical westerns!
I love the beard illusion and the scaling on the face!

Wonderful piece buddy, I love the hair and how it seems to flow off the dragon and also the detail of scales you added into the light. The horns are bone feeling with the texture glossy which seems like bone, and also the face and teeth illuminated with the fire really adds to the passion within the piece. You sure have been doing a good job. c:
