Dragon's Soul by Sayda Dragon's Soul by Sayda
EDIT - This is just me re-uploading this old piece. I wanted to adjust the print but for some reason I couldn't without deleting and reloading the entire image :/ But well, made some revisions as well so enjoy!


"...He could feel the pull...feel his soul tugging, compelling him on to a path that so few had followed. Was this the way, was this what he wanted all along? A part of him fought the feelings churning inside...but still his soul pulled...pulled untill his mind realized that he could not fight any longer...he could not fight what he was, he could not fight against what he desired...the soul of a dragon is a powerful force and soon he would find that he could do nothing more then give into the beast within..."


This is a piece I did for my friend, Dragon's, birthday (yes, that is him in the picture xD ) :3 I was greatly inspired by a photograph of him taken by the OH so very talented Jaqui Wujec.

I guess you could call this a photo manipulation...but I decided that there was so much work done to the original image that I'd place it under the digital art category instead.

But well...this was another experiment for me...and I am rather fond of the results. Unfortunately, though, the original comp I did this on used an LCD this image may appear REALLY dark to you...a lot of the detail was lost...which is rather upsetting...but it's only like that on some computers. Hopefully it's not tooo bad o_o;;

Anyways...yea...that is all XD Enjoy folks! And make sure you stop by Jaqui's page and give her mad props for her awesome photography talent ^__~

I was surprised to see this in my usual list of recent popular fantasy drawings.

I like the fact that you returned to this magnificent drawing for a revision, but after months and months of looking at the poster of the original (Its above my bed), I really prefer that version.

Keep up the drawing though, you're awesome!

I thought it was an awesome print before, and it still is. That would be the reason there is a framed poster sized print of it hanging on my wall that I got from one of the ACen Art Auctions a few years back. ^^

I am so happy it's available for print again! I've been wanting a print of this for years! I was devastated when it wasn't being sold anymore!
