Dance of the Dragons

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

A piece meant to be of a series, along with the 'Dance of the Blades' picture here in my gallery, showing the various dances which play a heavy part in the culture and beliefs of Kana and his people. This particular dance is a tribute to the Immortal Dragon God, in which Kana uses his gifts and unique twin Katanas to create spiritual dragons from smoke and ash and fire sparks. Oh, but I think I hate this picture. As a concept sketch it looked like it could be soemthing special, and the visualisation I had was a lot to live up to. Sadly, it all went a bit pearshaped, and I gave it up, which is why the dragons look a little unfinished. I think the media just disagreed with me this time, and there are fundamental flaws in the anatomy, namely that you can't really get your body into that position. Some argue that the main point is that it doesn't detract from the flow of the image, but I dont buy that. My drawings have to be placed in real physics and the anatomy has to be proportioned and believable. Being an artist can be so frustrating sometimes. Still, you live and learn...
