Nice Smile
I can imagine this painted on silk, or fine linen flapping in the wind, undulating those beautiful curves you have painted.

Hi there and thank you for your lovely comment. For this one I used oil pastels (Neopastel from Caran D'Ache).

That's great--when I first saw the colours, I thought "Klimt!" I love the colours he uses, and you've done it marvellously. Love the dragon!

cheer,yes this is a very klimpt piece,style wise.beautifull may-lin. Laughing out loud

Guest's picture

Oh a Chinese Dragon I love them,It's beautiful May-lin:) The border looks very Klimt, I think the reason for this is because like many Art Neauvo artists he got his inspiration from the East.

Hope you get round to your Chinese dragon, they are not that time consuming, as their anatomy is fairly simple.

Chinese dragons kick ass! I have thought about making one myself so many times but I just never seem to get the spare time needed. Nice curves! I think this would make an excellent wallpainting. Chris Xavier

Very pretty. I like your use of colors and the depth you've achieved in using the black background and wonderful border.

djinn's picture

Thank you.
You've got me very curious now, do I know you? Or did you guess my background from my name and personal photo? Smile

Guest's picture

interesting the idea you have. and eventually brought out hidden behind that mix oriental background you have on yourself; klimt and the dragon. explosive. bravo. great personal touch on it.

djinn's picture

I think I might be missing something here, but thank you very much. Smile

for the first look it seems that the Dragon cling to the moon(the crystal¿)well,i like klimt and this combination with katsushika and your own style is an interresting succeded yield...more from it!

swisnie's picture

You have a wonderful and unique style! I would like to see more of this distinct work.

Thank you, Vera Lucia Smile

I can see the influence of Klimt on the borders, May-Lin. The figure is very beautiful, very oriental! Not the common type of dragon one can find in fantasy art.

djinn's picture

Thanks Amy!
I am still trying to decide which other pieces to submit here. Smile

Guest's picture

Very majestic and graceful! I like the strong colors mixed with that dreamy quality. I'm looking forward to seeing your other artwork posted here.

Elegant and well designed May-Lin the colors are lovely.

djinn's picture

Thanks. I actually made the border first and then had a hard time deciding what to put in it. Smile
