Another slightly older work of mine from 2004, done as a present for a friend. This is the actual size that it was painted at, so there was some annoying pixel pushing involved. ;) In here, a small - or not so small - lightning dragon has stood up against forces beyond her comprehension. She might win or lose, but she will have started a path for many to follow.
Tools: Ulead Photoimpact 8, mouse
Time taken: about two - three days, on and off.
