Daily Deviation

Given 2010-06-19
Dragon Style by ~guterrez represents prefectly the heat of an exotic but deathly fight full of fantasy elements amazingly designed! Not only the motion is brave and awesome, but the characters in the scene are simply outstanding! (Also suggested by =drop-asd and `archann) ( Suggested by rydi1689 and Featured by Atramina )

wow amazing picture. You really did a great job, the dragon behind him really just kicks ass, lol i think the old grandmaster is going to win for sure.

I was wondering though if you would allow me to use this image in the trading card game I am working on; I will give full credit to you if you allow me to use the picture. I will not use this image unless you give permission of course. If you have any questions just post a comment here or email me at cardsofwar@live.com

Great take on western dragons... really well done.
Reply
:icondragoniel:
Dragoniel Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2010
Why do you refer to the creature as a "western dragon"? Common western dragon doesn't have serpent body. It's a creature with 4 legs and leather wings, which is clearly not the case here. It's probably the most common dragon type (in the art) too, aside Chinese and Japanese dragons.

From the depiction I would say that the swordsman is probably Chinese master, which would imply the Chinese dragon behind. However, the creature depicted is not a Chinese dragon as far as my knowledge goes. It is actually most similar to Naga, a serpent dragon kind from the East mythologies. Originating from India, to be exact.

I can be wrong, of course, but I suppose only the guterrez could shed some light on the story behind the depiction. Speaking of which, it's an exceptional piece indeed. I am happy to have come by it.

P.S.: Coincidentally, I've been using "dragon style" in my personal (and unpublished) writings and thoughts as an ultimate kendo art technique, used only by Dragonsworn - Guardians of the Winged Shadow. If this one is anything like it, that woman is beyond gone now ;)

Good point, i've been so sleep deprived I don't know East from West (literally). Four or less hours of sleep for the last 20 weeks has not been good for my brain. Keep up the good work, Lovely Laura
