hmm.. this is the quickest picture i've ever done! (from start to finish in only a few hours!) well, most of my stuff is a few hours, but this one i did in one night! which has never happened before when coloring is involved.
ANYway, about the pic, i suppose it is the guardian of water and/or air from an ancient time when dragons were worshiped as gods and sacred creatures. i guess this dragon doesn't care much for the ornaments and jewelry that is often given to such guardians--meaning perhaps he is powerful and doesn't need to draw attention to himself by means of prancing around adorned in cerimonial garb.
once again, done in prismacolor pencils.
