Azure Dragon by Grishend Azure Dragon by Grishend
Haha... my valentine deviation didn't finish on time so I'll just submit something else.

The Azure Dragon (traditional Chinese: 東方青龍; simplified Chinese: 东方青龙; pinyin: Dōng Fāng Qīng Lóng) is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations. It is sometimes called the Azure Dragon of the East. It represents the east and the spring season. It should not be confused with the mythological yellow dragon that is associated with the Emperor of China.

After Leviathan (water) and Bahamut (neutral), I tried to make my own summon magic without any reference. So here's the ice one, the Azure Dragon.

Programs used:
Adobe Photoshop 7.0
OpenCanvas 4.03

Woah, that is amazing...and very inspirational. Thank you for uploading this! The dragon is very nicely drawn and the flowing water and the storm are a great combination to make your work look more dynamic! :)

This is an impressive picture. It really does remind me of some traditional artwork in Ancient China, except it is drawn in a modern way. I don't even know what else to say. This picture is just simply stunning. :heart: It almost brings a chill to my spine, but maybe it is also because my house is rather cold. :P
