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.

That's beautiful. :) The warm sun pouring through the window, the flowers and cup of tea sets a nice atmosphere in this picture. The way the dragon is smiling slightly with it's tail in mouth looks cute. :) It was a good choice to set the scene in the library - it's a good symbol of knowledge and... well, I've lost the thread of my thoughts now, of what I was going to say. :XD: Drats. What do you mean by your terribly eloquent speech skills? I'm sure you spoke great words, if your meaningful cheery journals are anything to go by (although I acknowledge that writing a journal and speaking with hundreds of people staring at you present different pressures :lol:), and even if you think you did crap, I daresay few will remember any stuff-ups by you in the future. :P I'm guessing it felt awesome to receive the commission from the college, as it means they were really impressed by your work, and it will be seen by many people in future.

Forget bookworms. Bookdragons are cooler.
