Oh wow, a picture that ISN´T a dragon or a unicorn..... or is it? o__o; I just had a weird idea of a drawing when I was walking outside in the forest at night. Nothing too great, I know, Uploaded it just for a change. It´s not a dragon, it just happens to LOOK like one, right? ^^;;;

I did a charcoal-drawing for my schoolwork from the older weird pencil-scribble, and because it turned out looking pretty cool, I replaced the sketch here with the finished work. Done with charcoal, chalk pastels and a bit of coloured pencils. This is a photo again for the drawing is too big for my scanner, and because I´m pretty bad with taking photos much of the detail and shades are lost. Too bad.

*first comment dance* I just adore this picture, it shows a more, individual tree as opposed to the more "pretty" ones. The whole picture shows the magic within the tree, and the magic of the forest. I would love to meet this tree someday....
PS: Love the bird and the feathers! They add a magical, detailed touch that every picture should have!! Well done!!

I love the details you put into this. It looks just like a seen out of a horror movie. The shading gives it that eerie look. I also love the crow taking off from the branches of the tree, and the angle your at, so you are staring up at the tree and crow and sky.

I absolutely LOVE this picture, the angle, the hidden "dragon" in the tree, the eerie shape, the little trinkets that make you wonder what went on here, what's the story. This picture blows my mind, and yet you just decided to scan it! I'm glad you did.
