Dragon by Ahyicodae Dragon by Ahyicodae
Chinese dragon! Regent over the skies, she roams her domain, bringing with her a great storm.

Lower ranking deities do not mess with her. The phoenix challenged her for rule over the middle kingdom and was vaniquished. Not even Ninetails will tangle with the dragon, or attempt to trick or bargain with her, for the dragon is several millennia old and far too wise to be deceived.

... except by the Celestial Kitsune, who tricked her out of an ancient map once. It's a long story, and if the kitsune is ever caught by the dragon again, she's likely to be eaten.

For those interested, I have tutorials on photomanipulating a dragon:

Part I: Dragon Collage
Part II: Dragon Head
Part III: Lighting and Coloring

Thanks to *pricecw-stock for the snake stock! :)

Future possible projects include a phoenix, western dragon, and sea dragon. I will probably start with the phoenix, as I've been planning to design it for a while now. We'll see how busy things get. I may not be able to work on it before summer, but I've been wanting to do one for ages.

COME BACK HERE YOU ASSHOLE! YOU DIDN'T GRANT ME MY WISHES!

I love it, I just did my first ever dragon and It was a Chinese style and I took some inspiration from this. how did you do the textures if I may ask?

It's a photomanipulation, so the scales are part of the original photographs (I used a variety of snake photos for the body and superimposed the snake scales in layers to cover the arms and other non-snake segments). I have a tutorial in my gallery that shows the process. :-)
