:) Thank you, good to see another comment on this one. For some reason it doesn't catch the eye as much as I think it deserves myself as I'm quite fond of it personally. So thx again ;)

Wow, awesome scene! You really achieved a convincing sense of scale, in large part through the carefully detailed shading. I just love it!

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

Now that is one big ass dragon... no, I'd say it would have to be a god of the dragons themselves. A veritable incarnation of elemental earth, methinks.

How much is watercolour, and how much gouache? It's easy to tell what bits were airbrushed, of course.. ;)

Something like that was my intent. Above all I wanted it to be huge and I think I managed to achieve that effect a little bit ;)

Yup. He's (it's? she's? so hard to tell with dragons :D ) not quite an Ourouborus, but certainly close. A nephew or cousin perhaps, heh.

:iconmig-05:
MiG-05 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2006
Perhaps he is but who/what is an Ourouborus?
Reply
:iconamarynceus:
Amarynceus Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2006   General Artist
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. :lmao:

Wikipedia has a decent summary of the Ouroborus idea. I should have looked there first to refresh my memory. ;)

MiG-05 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2006
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 ;)

A wonderful eruption of fantination*.....so brilliant and beautiful.....the dragon is an invisible and mythical overseer of the skies.....could represent a god....

Interesting verbiage ;) And a dragon at that size... who's to say it isn't a god. I mean, the dragon might have something to say in the matter and well... I guess it would win any argument ;P

I wouldn't want to get into a debate with a dragon....

Man: I think you're completely wrong, Mr. Dragon....
*dragon breathes fire into his face*
Man: I see.....

and then death....

:jawdrop: wow. That is one big dragon. I like how it looks from a distance like part of the mountain, but when you get close you see the dragon. Yet another great job.

Thx, I wanted to make him part of the mountain or perhaps to be the mountain itself

Yeah I love the dragons for their majestic impressions so I always try to find it in them. If they had existed they would rule the earth to kingdom come, no questions asked.

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

Maybe the lighter part of the painting reflected the flash from the camera (if it is a photograph of his work) And maybe that's why the light looks a bit confusing?
