I created this digital painting to try out my new MS Surface Pro. I have loved dragons since I was a kid. They project the ideas of fierce power and freedom. This dragon is an extension of the ancient sky surfer's mind. Through his third eye, he has monitored the mortals since the beginnings of civilization. As punishment for mankind's neglect of the earth he decided to steal the sun.

Great dragon scales! Neat design. Love the dragon's head. I see this standing master figure and feel like I should be cringing in terror! A heroic image next is called for I should think. Need to steal it back.

Unless you have a reason to do so, like self promotion or something you may want to tone down your signature. It outshines the sun you might say. :D

haha! You're so right about the signature...Without thinking, I threw it on there last minute in the excitement of finishing my first digital piece in a while. Thanks.

Thank you. I'm glad because I needed an illustration piece for my portfolio, and I think I want this to be it.

Yes it's my first although I have worked a lot with Photoshop. I am very impressed with how fluid ArtRage is to work with and I have plenty of ideas bouncing around in my head on how to utilize its brushes and tools.
