Dragon of air


My third elemental dragon. The Dragon of Air. His name is Arcon. Like the Serpent it's snake like. It has to forearms and two large wings. This dragon controls the weather. It's most active at daylight. His brother The Dragon of Night is active(aka Mirnah)at nightfall, he to can control weather but is much gentiler than his daylight brother. No wonder there less storms at night than day.

Painter and Photoshop work. I think I could have done better. But I'm keeping him like this.

Took me about 25 hours to draw.

I really like it but I think you should consider taking away the lighting on the wings and add more rainbow style color to the body mostly on the tail anybody else feel the same?

This is my favorite of ALL your dragons.

Yup. Just a very well drawn dragon. I like the color and the lightning effect.

My favorite of your pictures by far

Also, to Aurican1:
"Air is not one of the traditional five Chinese classical elements. Nevertheless, the ancient Chinese concept of Qi or chi is believed to be close to that of air. Qi is a fundamental concept of traditional Chinese culture. Qi is believed to be part of every living thing that exists, as a kind of "life force" or "spiritual energy". It is frequently translated as "energy flow", or literally as "air" or "breath"."
So, the Dragon of Air and the Dragon of Energy are the same dragon.

perfection is trash...

Your art is amazingly lifelike, and I have made a few peice my background. But what makes it lifelike is not how perfect it looks. It looks that way through the imperfection you have in your style. Life is not perfect, and neither should art, the most purest represtation of it. So keep the imperfection and build on it, at the rate you are going I expect to see your name somewhere high, soon.

Pretty kickass; I'm a fan ^_^

My only complaint is the rather bland lighting. Given that this dude is spitting lightning out of every orafice, I think that a greater contrast between the lit and shaded portions of the dragon would make it a much more dynamic pic.

Beyond that, though, this is stunning. The wings kind of remind me of the Thunder Bird from LoZ II; brings back fond memories.
