There's just something about dragon's that are so mystical and whimsical. This one is no exception. The design of the wings and all the detail is absolutely stunning. An amazing job, really well done.

Really beautiful illustration. The composition is very nice and I particularly enjoy the white wings of the dragon and the beautiful design on the wings. The horizontal engraving-like line for the sky is also a nice touch.

By brain is exploding with feels! I love the butterfly patterns on the wings and the INSANE detail and beauty in this piece! And of course Dragons are my favorite fantasy animal because I consider myself a dragon, born in the year of the dragon. Heehee.

oh my word what a stunning work of art! The detailing is superb and i dread to think how long all that crosshatching took. Excellent use of the crosshatching for shading and wonderous composition throughout the image. But aside from the technical mumbo jumbo this is a beautifully imaginative image, an image that really pulls you in to another world, an image the observer can weave stories around. As i look at it my eye discovers more and more beautiful things to look at. I adore the wilds like you would not believe and when i gaze at this image i experience a similar wonderment as when i look at some beautiful mountains. Harsh. Wild. Beautiful. Mysterious. How you have captured that through paper and ink is an incredible credit to the importance of creativity, the inspiration in imagination and sheer skill. Really well done!

There was once a dragon or possibly a gryphon, I'm no longer sure which, who was desparate to eat a local princess. Unfortunately, she was invariably accompanied by a large tribe of white cats the mere sight of which always gave the gryphon the aigues. Disracting them with mice and sparrows didn't work so he tried buying enough pairs green glass spectacles to cover his eyes, but on his way to eat the princess he saw a white poodle, and as the mere sight of a green dog always made him sneeze he accidentally broke them all. In this scene the dragon has riived at the foot of a tree where a wise old toad has told him he will find a magical packet of something calle 'Reckitt's Blue'. He is even now contemplating dyeing the cats a harmless blue colour...
