I ran the original through a Photoshop filter to get an engraved look.
Thanks Jennifer. It took me many attempts to design this knot,about 20 or so.I wanted the dragon to flow so i basicly worked my way around the paper without lifting my pencil trying to form a dragon.When i arrived at something i was happy with, i shaded between my line to fom the band, then the over and under's last.
Wow! For the longest time I've been wondering how to do a knotwork dragon that would /look right/. I've done one or two, but they look akward...the knotwork weaves well but the overall effect isn't very aesthetic. But you did it! With a vengance!
I love celtic knotwork stuff, and this dragon is really cute!! What about this in color, it would certainly rock!
Nice knotwork Stephen.
