A random sketch of a gargoyle waterspout, semi-based on the style of Wayne Anderson. Ballpoint pen.

This is certainly an awesome sketch. The lines really bring out the dark and rustic nature of the topic.

WOW...I truly love this piece. Especially the framing and the way the water drips out of the main, rigid outlines of the image...it's just...wow *S*

u did that with a pen! wow the only 2 ways I could do that would be with invisible ink, or the art of printing! great job!

Very nice, ste sketchy quality really adds to the mood, I like how the drips from the mouth extend past the border.

Are prints available for this piece? I don't see a link... This would look awesome nicely framed and matted, in a small scale. Very intimate. I love your shading and just... the feeling of depth and dimension is really tangible. Its artists like you who remind me that formal training is hardly a waste of talent. This rocks.

1 J. ´Kythera' Contreras replies: "Thanks! ^_^;; I don't currently have prints available for this piece, no... But I DO still have the original and can re-scan it to make prints if there's a demand for them. Would you be interested? Drop me an email at kythera(at)gmail.com"

This is the closest I've seen to the dragon species "Draco occidentalis minimus" or the Gargouille dragon.
