A picture inspired by looking out the window at the clouds and having the urge to paint them... and then having the urge to put a dragon in there. This work is licenced under a Creative Commons Licence.

This is breath taking, i wish i could look out a window and draw something as good as this! It reminds me a lil of the phantoms from final fantasy: The spirits within. Wow, this is just so amazing...

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Thank you! Yeah, I can kinda see the resemblance to the phantoms now you mention it."

Draw them in the clouds, sometimes I SEE them in the clouds, but I can barely draw believable clouds in my pictures. This is such a good picture, would make a great fog dragon or something like that 2 Wonderful work, I envy your talent with clouds!

Oh! And Alternate Destinies is done too by the way 2

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Hehe, thanks 2 Clouds are easier when CGing though, I wouldn't be able to do them so well with coloured pencil. Some things are easier in certain mediums. And as you know, I've already checked out Alternate Destinies 12"

Awesome! I love the colors and your painting style. Also- interesting choice to make the dragon such a subtle part of the design. Are you trying to indicate that creatures are roaming our atmosphere as we speak?!

Hhhmmmm.... KUTGW!

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Thank you! Actually, the original concept didn't have the dragon blend in as much... his head ended up in the wrong place. If his head was above the clouds he'd be more obvious... but I like it this way. I wasn't trying to indicate that... until you mentioned it, that is 12 Maybe they're the ones that turn the clouds red as the sun sets..."

Kinda makes you wanna fly a plane. Really does. It also somewhat reminds me of that flying dog thing in that movie.. err.. the neverending story. Yeah I think that was it. lol.

I think it's awsome. Is it really a painting? What kinda paint did you use? I used REAL watercolors for the first time a couple weeks ago and I hated them. Geh, lol. Not my style. >< well whatever it is, it's awsome. I love the tail. He looks like a really kind, nice, friendly 'ol dragon... either that or one that doesn't seek a lot of human interacteration. the clouds seem to mold around him somewhat... or rather, he seems to mold around the clouds. You can kinda stare at it for a while, like any cloud. Heh, but I like dragons too. ^^;;

*yawn* makes me sleepy... lol... *snore* ZZZZzzzz

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "It's a digital painting, so no, no watercolours there... and the flying dog thing is called Falcor! 12 Yeah, real watercolours are hard. Very unforgiving. Personally, my vote is for the lack of human interaction theory... he's got his head in the clouds all the time. "

Very, very cool - I remeber flying as a kid and always looking out for things in the clouds 12

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "You remember flying when you were a kid? Wow, I can't remember crawling, I don't think I was even able to fly... 12 Thank you for the comment too 2"

This dragon can't be chased, but viewed... I like the idea- it makes you want to observe the clouds much closer than it is possible =)
