Shenlong the rainbringer by VampirePrincess007 Shenlong the rainbringer by VampirePrincess007
Shenlong is a spiritual dragon from Chinese mythology who is the master of storms and also a bringer of rain.
The spiritual dragons are azure-scaled and govern the wind, clouds and rain, on which all agricultural life depends.
Chinese people would take great care to avoid offending them, for if they grew angry or felt neglected, the result was bad weather, drought, flood or thunderstorms.

pd: the preview image looks awful, dunno why

I have always liked Asian Dragons.  Forces of nature rather than monsters to be vanquished by heroes.

Well done. Shenlong looks a bit more like a serpent than a dragon with the long tail though. But I still love it. Did you use oil pastels or was it paint?

If something like this could be seen, noone would be neglecting giving prayers for thanks giving of rain and good weather. All to make sure it doesn't get angry. Your Shenlong looks like a being that could control certain atmospheric occurencies.

the depth in this picture is amazing, with how you arranged everything you definitely get how freaking HUGE that dragon is! except there's just one thing a little off. It looks like the wind is blowing and the grass is blowing in one direction, but the flags are blowing in a different direction

Damn, it is awesome. But I miss from your older work this feeling how big those dragons actually are. Althow there was less detail than in this work yet there was greater feeling of air perspective.
