Earth Dragon by MistyTang Earth Dragon by MistyTang
And here's the second of six dragon commissions for :iconjcheekda:

Aah, having such a ball with these commissions!
This one's the Earth Dragon. He's one of my favorites. I thought that since he's the earth dragon he'd be older and more tattered than the others. He's old and grumpy--and I have a thing for those kinds of characters (we are kindred spirits, nyahaha). ;) And of course I kept him all rocky looking. And a simple sky background to make him pop~

Very pleased with this one, too! ^,^

I posted a WIP of this one at my Tumblr --> [link]

I love this image. This dragon just has so much personality that it practically bursts through the colour.

He looks like a statue. You know those statues that end up being performers and randomly move when you least expect it (which is never)? I imagined him being sort of like that. Seriously, he looks great. I love it.
Speaking of rocky-looking things, have you ever seen rockfish? I was at the aquarium, and my dad was like, "Look at the fish!" What fish? And then a rock swam away.

No, I don't recall ever seeing a rockfish. Sounds cool, though! :nod:

your coloring with layers of different opacity and all these brushes is quite likeable, you know that?
especially for motives like this, where you have a close up without too many details.
it makes the pic come alive, thatīs lovely!

I really like this dragon! :D I love the contrast between the back round and his skin/scales. Also, he looks like he IS looking at us, which is awesome! Great work! ^^

I adore how one of his stalagtite-like horns is broken off. He's just all sorts of weathered and worn
