I love this, it's absolutely amazing. Have you been making journals to sell, though? My fiance bought a journal with this exact design on the cover at Borders (I think) in Singapore, and I just saw another being sold at Waterstones' in Leicester last week, too. I'm asking because you don't seem to have mentioned selling your work.

Beautiful! Every little girl needs a dragon protector! I love the scales, gold collar and the sinuous twisting around the tree trunk! :D

When I first saw this, I thought the "unfair advantage" was because it looked like the girl was tickling the dragon. :p

...then I saw the wolves at the bottom.

Very good either way. You make me want to learn how to use watercolor.

OMG. I just spent the last hour looking through all my favorite to find this piece!!

Well, now that I found it, I was wondering if you would consider making a print out of this (for a price obviously) for me.

Or if you know how (b.c. I don't), I would love this print if I could get it as a 'sticker'. I want to add it to a binder of mine...

SO IDK what you think, but hit me back!

So many details! The use of solid black adds to the story-book feel. I especially like the girl; her hair and the skirt of her dress echo other shapes in the piece so nicely!

Her clothes and hair are so precious, and the way her cheeks are red. Great linework on the dragon.

The contrast created by the white background is truly marvelous! After looking at your gallery I must say that you are a magnificent artist, comparable to old masters like Arthur Rackham, John Bauer, Kay Nielsen and Ivan Bilibin.

Keep up the good work!

By the way. Is the picture related to any story apart from what it tells in itself?

I like how sinister the dragon's smile is, knowing he could just totally drop her sorry butt to be eaten by the wolves. I mean the dragon isn't even that far off the dragon either, it's as if it's teasing her showing her whose boss.

Who has control over who now?

probably let myself read into it to much

anyways love your workjust stumbled on it today, the texture is awesome

This is so cool. The tree and the dragon both look really good. Plus the whole idea of a little girl and dragon vs a couple dogs is sweet.

Hmm. I thought I commented when I faved this... but apparently not. ><

I love the little girl's face, the pattern on her sleeves (and the ruffles on her dress; so cute!), and the dragon's scales. It's those intricate details that really make this great. =D
