This is something I had been working on for a long time. DJ was drawn in a dramatically different style from my usual stuff. I started detailing scales and well, it just exploded from there.
I decided to give it a background as well, since I hardly do those. This unfortunately left the two pieces (dragon and background) not exactly looking like they go together, despite my best efforts. Oh well, at least I tried, better than not doing it at all.
