Lucy Andrews had this beautiful pencil drawing of two dragons circling each other, and she was kind enough to let me color them and put them against a background. ;) I'm not so sure I like the white dragon over the darker background (it makes for a weird edge to it), but besides that I'm happy with the results.

This is my first Photoshop-colored piece done with a tablet, and although in some ways it makes things easier, it's also a completely different way of coloring (my pen has varying pressure, which is something I couldn't do with my mouse) - and it will take some time to really get used to it. The background that you see is a modified version of a project I made for my Eastern Anatomy class last semester, showing all 5 elements in a yin & yang setting (night and day) - which I thought was a perfect backdrop for our two lovely beasts. (The background was done completely using Photoshop.)
