Long Mu: Mother of the 5 Dragons
This piece was commissioned for a book based on Gods and Goddesses of Mythology. It will be full of other artists as well, each choosing gods and goddesses from different cultures. They still have spots and there is an entry fee... If your interested I'll pass on the email.

I choose Long Mu- Mother of the 5 dragons of chinese mythology. I put my own artistic spin on it, yet I stayed true to the legend.

I will be adding color to this and it has a companion piece as well.

More to come

This piece is amazing, Trav. The shading and coloring is really awesome as usual. The feel of this piece really reminds me of Zelda for some reason, which is definitely a great thing! You always seem to amaze and inspire me with your artwork, even if that inspiration really doesn't inspire me to make artwork of my own anymore.

You are a great person to admire, not only because of your talent but because of your hard work and character that you display on deviantART every time you post. Keep doing what you're doing man :)

Looks brilliant man. I especially like the work that you did with that island in the background.

I'm not really seeing any faces in the rock on this one though. Is that because it was a commission?

Very cool Trav--as usual :) When is the deadline for the book? I'd be really interested in participating, but my schedule is super tight right now since I'm in my last quarter of graduate school and have to finish my thesis before March...
travisJhanson's avatar
deadline is may and the costs is about $200 per page but the benifits are huge... They've done one already so I jumping in on this and snagged 2 pages. With 20+ other artist pushing the book and you get a about 40 books per page you have to sell or do with at your whim. Alot better than having to deal with 2000 books sitting in your garage.

Their goal is to have this one out for SDCC
