I’ve been long time looking for this one. I saw it once, and couldn’t find again. This time it’s going to my favorites

This is the most incredible work of art. I looked for it forever after I first saw it, and now I stare at its majesty again.

This is absolutely amazing! How in the world have you managed to create such an invisibility-shiny state with Colored Pencils, Watercolor alone?

First, I think this is a really stunning picture. Brilliant!
Second, some (probably very unexpected) science. The dragon looks like it is translucent, like it were made of glass, but that is not strictly true. It is covered in millions of tiny scales that trap and bend the incoming light. They efficiently transmit the light to neighbouring scales until coming to a scale that is on the exact opposite side of the body part. The light is bent again, so that it is emitted at exactly the same angle as it came in. The result is near invisibility; a great advantage to a large predatory animal. The effect is detectable to human vision (which is super-high resolution and capable of extremely powerful analysis), but it is enough to fool the dragon’s prey animals long enough for the dragon to catch them.
