I drew this picture for a friend of mine, whose father is obsessed with dragons, wizards and anything celtic. I tried to include all three of these things, but the celtic knots on the wizard's cloak turned out horrible. If anyone has any hints for me on how to draw them, let me know.

I'm honored to put the first comment on this great picture! I don't think the knots is that bad.

the wizarrd and the dragon are great but perhaps you could make the staff a bit longer and the knott bigger? it would be more imprssive that way. Also the dragon is a little bit less detailed than the wizard. great peace of work anywaySorry, once I'm done the picture (meaning once my signature is on it) I don't fix it up. There's too big a chance that I'll make it worse. Besides, I already gave it to my friend.

I love the picture. But have a tip on the knot work. Go to your local bookstore and ask for a book on drawing celtic knots. There are various different books of whice I can't recall the titles. But they show you how and it's very very easy once you understand the concept. And since I can't draw I won't attempt to explain it lol. Lets just say it's explained so well even I can do it and I'm at stick people still.

The dragon is a very good drawing, love is face expression, but the wizard, he a bit too small.

Maybe the dragon is just very big? There is a series of books out there by a guy called Aidan Meehan which give good tutorials on how to draw Celtic knotwork, gripping beasts and the like (and no, I'm not on commission, darn it!) BTW, can I be that dragon's pet, too? Nice work.

I like it. The knots aren't as bad as you think. They're actually pretty good especially if they are your first. I used to know this awesome web site that showed how to draw 'em but I would have to look it up again.
