Each dragon stakes its claim on a different treasure trove and where there is treasure there is a thief. This thief thought the signs posted saying "Beware of Dragon" was a joke or a ruse to try and scare away those of his trade. He will think twice if he survives and sees another such warning sign.This is again part of the push for me to do work in color, this was a very difficult struggle for me. I wanted to ink this and put in all the details, but I forced myself to go straight from graphite to colored pencils. I wanted to capure the effect of a misty fog and a dragon emerging from it back in the distance. I also wanted to capture the effect of glowing light from the lantern. I wanted also the feel of thundering motion of a dragon and the quick retreat of the thief.I think to my self, if I were in his boots what would I feel; terror.
