Behold her mighty cuteness!

This is an Oekaki piece (Shi Painter, actually) done entirely in the pastel palette, although I did up the contrast in Photoshop to make it look better. This is one of the first designs for my cloud-cave dragons, which I was inspired to do after seeing the 'White Dragon' mod's choice image that looked so incredibly like Flammie of Legend of Mana. I wanted to create a type of fuzzy, fluffy dragon that wasn't anything like Flammie. They aren' anything like that artist's rendition, either.

A cloud-cave dragon does not have wings visible to mundane eyes, and thus it seems to fly without any wings at all.

This form of cloud-cave dragon is my creation. Please do not steal my design.

This is an amazing piece, the colours are very pleasing to the eye. I can't believe you did this on oekaki though...brilliant!
