Fishing On The Drinking Dragon by AndyFairhurst Fishing On The Drinking Dragon by AndyFairhurst
This is a speedpainting for me...I did it this evening in about 4/5 hours with a couple of breaks. I decided to see if I could work from scratch with no idea of what I was going to paint until pen hit tablet. Anyway it is cliched as hell but I think it is ok for the time taken.

Photoshop 7.0

Wacom I 3

Thanks for looking

Edit* I have resized this to a larger size due to the fact that the prints were small on the original. In doing so I have had to re touch a lot of it ( something I don't want to do again!!! ) and I have also added textures over the top so it didn't look so smooth. I also added more scale detail to the feet and some trees/grass. Anyway a larger print size is now available if anyone is interested.

Cheers

Fishing On The Drinking Dragon by *wildlifehoodoo is wonderfully imaginative! Fantastic scale work and great details really makes the mind go wild, don't we all wish we had a dragon for a friend? ( Featured by cosmosue )

Nicely done! It's not often you come across an artist depicting dragons in another light besides being evil, dangerous, or a combination of both.

Awesome work!

I like both sides of dragons, but yeah they are mostly depicted as fierce creatures :)

Thank you

And this is how the art works. When we have no plans and "just" do things, the magic of inspiration is coming to us. This painting is the best one of your dragon paintings (from my perspective ofcourse).
Thanx man :)

I am also working on a Dragon Poem and this dragon is the most like the one I'm writing about. I love especially the how the feet seem to blend into the roots of the tree. Beautifully done and one of my favorites.
