Oriental dragon by Fireshrike Oriental dragon by Fireshrike
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Three uploads in a week? What is this?! Even if one was just a meme that took all of 15 minutes to fill out, it's still a new concept for me. XD

EEEEE I can't believe this is finally done! It's taken me, like...a month? But I'm so glad I took the 12ish hours necessary to finish this! I love how it turned out in the end ohmygosh :iconsqueeeeplz: Anyways, I hope you guys like it! I'm actually thinking about making this dragon into an OC because I like the design so much...

Originally intended to be just a Japanese dragon, but you can't really tell the difference between this and a Chinese dragon (I think) so I just decided to retitle this as "oriental dragon". XD I drew this because with my playthrough of Okami (a heavily Japanese-influenced game) and my Japanese class, I decided I should try my hands at a Japanese dragon, and soon was drawing them all over the place. This is so far the only one that has made it to completion. XD
For those who aren't familiar with the Japanese or Chinese languages, the character in the upper left-hand portion of the picture means "dragon" ("ryuu" in Japanese, and I think "lung" in Chinese).

EDIT: Changed the texture slightly. Sorry if this appeared in your inboxes again. ^^'

EDIT 2: I'm too lazy to say this to everyone who favorited, so I'll just say it here - thank you so much for the favorites, guys! They are much appreciated! :D

Time: 12ish hours?
Programs: Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and a little bit of Corel Painter 4

XD, you're welcome.

I e-mailed the mods on the WCF too. I can't believe they thought you stole that....well, okay, I can, it's good enough to be professional!
