Dragon of Life by Gewalgon Dragon of Life by Gewalgon
:iconluoco: Luoco asked me to draw him a dragon of Life.
He is the guide of souls that pass on to the other side of the world when they die.
I hope you like it!

It's very nice! And the scales and horns are specially awesome! :love:
Also hey! This looks a dragon that could live in a wood area,like a forest. And you say it's a dragon of life,but you made him in this background and made him looks like a nature dragon too! Would it be because nature and green are like a symbol of life? I thought it,so I got curious! And so the color and way you made the fur on its forehead got great with the ambience and meaning of life and nature like dragon! :)

And,*Gewalgon,would you accept if I suggest you a suggestion that maybe you could do in some future artwork? I thought about something and it would be great see a/another picture from you if you do futurely. :aww:

You're welcome! :D
Ah cool!! You're very good with meanings and relationing them to things,hehe.

Sure,it's okay! It's just a suggestion anyway. ;)
You could do an artpiece of a dragon flying above the surface of a lake/with lake background. It would be very nice considering that water splashs effects and the dragon are would of course get great and are pretty,also why you're very good with dragons and have a creative mind for getting ideias! If someday you do an artpiece like this in black paper,would be even more awesome!
And thanks for letting me suggest! ^^

The level of detail you put into your work is quite impressive, especially with hair and scales. Very nice work.

My only question has to do with the far wing. Is the upper side supposed to be that white?

No, it has the same color too, but the scanner has stolen the colors :-/
(I made it brighter as the other wing, because the wing is far away)
