If there were such thing as a dragon emperor, this is what I think he'd look like. As of now, I consider this my best work to date. The original is 12 x 18 in. Detailed views can be found at my private gallery.

Why is it I always get my best ideas at one in the morning?? :-P

TO your comment about always getting the best ideas in the morning: I once had a teacher who told me that when you are lying down your brain is relaxed and is able to think only about thing u dont need muscles for...such as math or even creativity toward drawings.
But i really love the detail you put into your work the scale things are awesome...and the perspective is wonderful.

:-) Krystal Tyler replies: "That makes sense... I've solved at least one homework problem (math/physics-related) after going to bed before... Thank you! This is one of the few pictures I have where the perspective is decent."

Perhaps the best overall dragon picture I've seen at Elfwood. Really, really good detail on everything!

Keep it up!

Wow, you took the time to shade each scale. Something I'd grow bored with 12 Love the spikes, the whiskery things on his chin, and your shading techniques-- the spotty shading (it has a name I know it..) on the neck piece, the lined shading on the head, and the use of small and large scales 12 makes me feel like drawing again! Lol **hasn't updated her gallery in YEARS x_x** A beautiful work! 2

:-) Krystal Tyler replies: "Yeah, it does get boring after a while, but I try to break it up a bit with different-sized scales... "Spotty shading" is stippling or pointalism, whatever you want to call it. I used small lines for the fuzzy part at the bottom, though, so I don't know if that would technically be stippling or not... *shrug* Thank you for commenting!"

In a website related to the game Shadowrun game, a Dragon named Dunkhelzhan is elected President of the United States, AND IN AN OUTBURST OF RACISM HE IS ASSASSINATED! Well…may I humbly suggest that you should show us…a Secret Service dragon?
