:iconstop1plz::iconstop2plz::iconstop3plz::iconstop4plz:

Holy crimony! This has over 1,000 favourites :icondragonwant: Thank you everyone for your support :)

I'm finally done painting this... This was a request for :iconvictortky: that he made about 3 years ago that I'm still sorry that I've never gotten to. :( However, I finally managed to get this done and painted. I hope that he likes it.

This is a digital painting that I just finished of our dragon characters: Thor (top) and Doragon (bottom) from my book, The Sorcerer's Dragon. I got the idea to paint this while I was listening to the song, "Sanctuary," by Utada Hikaru for Kingdom Hearts 2. I wanted to paint the wings kind of like stained glass and I hope that the colours match.

I'm sorry if the little mount that Thor was supposed to be standing on wasn't clear. It's supposed to be like an ice-mountain peak.

Just to also let everyone know: I HAVE GIVEN PERMISSION TO :iconvictortky: TO ALSO UPLOAD THIS INTO HIS GALLERY SINCE THIS WAS HIS REQUEST. HOWEVER, NOBODY ELSE IS ALLOWED TO DO THAT OR ELSE I WILL REPORT YOU.

Drawn with a mechanical pencil then inked with a ball point pen. Scanned and painted with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

This was the last of the requests that I have. I still have one more to do for a good friend of mine, :iconsedsone:. After I complete his request, I will no longer accept requests.

Thor and Selena are (c) to me, :iconxrosewaterx:

Azrael and Doragon (c) to :iconvictortky:

EDIT: I FORGOT TO PAINT THE HIGHLIGHTS ON THE PHALANGES OF DORAGON'S WING.

Do not copy or duplicate.

UPDATE: THIS ALSO WON A MONTHLY CONTEST HOSTED BY :iconall-world-works: which can be found here :) [link]

Might I just say first of all, that this is a very impressive piece of artwork. The background and the dragons go together nicely. The dragons themselves are marvelous, the scales are perfect and the shading on them is flawless. The wings are amazing, absolutely magnificent, I love the colors that you used in the wing and the design is just awesome. The horns are very good also. You are a very good artist, good job on this piece of artwork. This is one of my first critiques, so please excuse me if I didn't word something correctly. Anyways I would like to see more of your art, I will look at your gallery and add you to my watch. Godd Work! :)

I think that this is an amazing peice of artwork i must say that you are a very talented artist to be able to produce such artwork i would never in a milliond years be able to make something like that. The main thing that i like about it is that it is about DRAGONS because they are wicked. The wings scales and claws must have taken an extreem amount of concentration and patience. something i dont exactly have. How ever old you are if you have one or not you better become an artist when you grow up because you have a very rare talent.

I had this thought of a scene in Armageddon regarding this picture.

Selena and her friends pausing for a break in a large cave in the midst of a heavy thunderstorm, and when they were all gathered around a fire and waiting for Doragon and Thor to return after scouting ahead for the group. When the two dragons returned, with Doragon enlightening Thor on the various dragon histories (because he had lived for a long time, and was a lorekeeper of draconic secrets alongside being a alpha male of the Fireridgebacks) and they both landed on an outcrop of rock in the storm, flexing their wings and claws. Selena, when talking to her friends, noticed the two dragons actually enjoying the storm, and both roared their defiance to the elements. 

And during the resting moment, Selena noticed Azrael actually standing in one corner by the cave entrance, his arms crossed and hood drawn up over his face, brooding about something as he watched the two dragons asserting their dominance of the land engulfed in the storm.
