The Reasons for Things by cryslara The Reasons for Things by cryslara
Oh fine, have another dragon. ;)
This was painted a while back as a commission for my residential college - my hall's logo is an ouroboros which makes doing art for them pretty awesome.

What's really cool is that this was printed out on a massive scale, at about two metres wide, that I then presented to the college at Commencement with all my terribly eloquent speech skills. It's the 50th anniversary of the hall this year and I hid the years in the bookshelves as a sneaky reference to that.

No idea on the time as I worked on it over summer, but Photoshop CS4 and a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet as always.

Wow. I haven't checked up on you for a while--and this is what I was missing. Incredible. I love the dragon's scales, the color palette, the natural pose of not-quite-eating its tail, and the subtleness of the years worked in--I didn't notice them at first, but they're so very clear now. You just did a phenomenal job; hope you're continuing to enjoy your work.
