Default Re: Art: Dragon Rising (non-Pern)

@Samsara, Hans, jube and Golden Talisath -- thank you for your kind words!

I have been trying to find my own dragon "style", and this has been the closest so far, I think. I did have my own story in mind while I was working on this, but I still wanted each viewer to hopefully come up with their own interpretation, or be curious about what led up to that particular moment I captured, or wonder what might happen next. It helped bring about some nice conversations at my art table at the conference.

@Hans: I painted this in Photoshop 7 using mostly basic brushes and lots of tiny strokes. When I finally got tired of painting every leaf, I made a custom brush to move along a little faster on the background.
