A graduation present for my friend Dino. :)

It's the kind of dragon that doesn't need wings to fly. ;) Or feet. :P The word dragon is "lohikäärme" in Finnish, and "käärme" means a snake so this is the snake kind of dragon. :) ("lohi" in the other hand means salmon, so maybe I should make a salmon dragon too XD)

Originally I drew the picture in December when Dino was in the hospital, but coloring it with watercolour took me so long that it ended up as a graduation present. :P

I did some fixing on the picture on Photoshop (mainly added some more sky above the dragon since I accidentally had drawn it very close to the egde of the paper).

Wow! Beautiful colors, forms, and pattern. It makes me think of stained-glass windows.
