This one’s a bit late – as I was delayed by other projects and coming down with a bit of a cold. Here we have the lone request that I received for a drawing to be done this Great Bear Month – an imagining of my good friends’ dog (who is also my good friend) Tiger Prawn as a dragon herself. She has some great fur and is probably the coolest looking canine I’ve ever met; plus, she has a great personality that seems to translate well into a mythical beast. So it wasn’t too hard to imagine.
Here’s Dragon Prawn, water serpent of the skies:
And here’s a pic of Prawn from a hike we went on:
I referenced the style and images of dragons from Japanese woodcuts for much of this – though the background was inspired by a print from Etsy (whose creator was reinterpreting ukioy-e for their own creative ends). I wound up getting a little far afield with the magenta elements – but I dig the overall effect.
Remember – if you have requests, I’m open to ideas for drawings this month, so email me ASAP.
