Thanks again It's now hanging on a wall in our hall. I must say that the original looks way better than this scanned image. One of the few i actually had a hard time to get somewhat along the same lines as the original artwork when I adjusted it in Photoshop
Ourouborus is the serpent biting his own tail -- one instance of him is Jormungand in Norse mythology, who grew so large that he could encircle the world and take his own tail in his mouth. I guess I was thinking of Jormungand in particular, as an Ourouborus (also spelt Ouroborus, Oroborus, Uroborus, Oroboros, and Uroboros ) isnt' necessarily huge and actually the term refers more to the symbol than the actual dragon....
So, uh, pretend I said Jormungand.
Wikipedia has a decent summary of the Ouroborus idea. I should have looked there first to refresh my memory.
I remember Jormungand and now that I've given it a little thought I think I've seen something about Oroburos somewhere. Long ago though, can't quite make out when/where but maybe my dragon is of the same sort
Heh I dunno, maybe someone's standing just outside the picture holding very bright burning torch Or moonlight perhaps, didn't really take that into accounting. Just wanted to get a little more personal feel of the mountain. But thank you anyway
Very pretty and very detailed indeed. The dragon rocks. But find you lighting a bit confusing, not that that would make the picture less amazing.
It's just that you've got a night sky, the dragon breath lighting the clouds/mist, and one light source behind the foreground mountain but I wondered where the light in the actual foreground comes from.-->confused
