Artwork Description

Sorry editors, i did a little readjusting and deleted the old file.

edit: larger version http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/33306690/

wallpaper of an earlier version without the lightshow from the shaman...http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/33409217/

For the ultimate dragon contest.. "A gentle creature glides gracefully high above the clouds, its shape so vast its shadow turns day into night. A shaman performs a ritual chant, to commune with the dragon." A few revisions needed, but glad i was made to do em. Take care everyone Marley

Damn this comments bug, I'll try again... Excellent fantasy feel to this one, good sense of serenity too. Classic colours are great - nice job.
