200+ faves! Thanks so much, guys! :aww:

Musical Inspiration

Finally, another dragon! \o/

Space scenes are ridiculously fun to draw.

I haven't drawn anything really creative and completely original for quite a while (it's mostly been fanart) but a few days ago I watched *Isvoc's livestream, and it really inspired me to get my brain into gear again. I may go back and touch parts of this up at a later time.

EDIT: Detail shot! :D

I've looked at quite a bit of your other artwork and have been amazed at such a fine quality of dragons you've managed to create. Seeing into the imagination of the artist is always a fun thing to behold. Such lovely details used for the clouds and the space image is a work of genius!
Your dragon is very luminescent, with beautiful blue stripes that add depth to the creativity you've managed to bring! Your angelic wings are such a refreshing idea on a dragon, I never even thought of such a creature to have wings as you've drawn!
The comets are so amazing it looks as if the dragon has made them! (and maybe he did?)
Great job, I wish I could draw as well as you've done.
4.5 star average!
What do you think?

You say I'm a little biased when it comes to dragons, but of all the fantasy creatures dragons have always been depicted as the most powerful, intelligent and mysterious of beings. This dragon you have created meets that strict criteria with flying colors. The setting, outer space, just proves that dragons even have the power to transcend the limits of imagination going places that no living creature should ever go so exposed.

Vision, originality, technique, and impact you passed with flying colors. This picture would go perfect on a t-shirt which most air brush drawings do. Keep up work like this and I would not be surprised to see your work on a shirt next time I go buy clothes lol. Fantastic work! I'll be "watching."
