Artwork Description

My idea for an image of Nidhogg-- in Norse Mythology, the dragon who gnaws at the root of the World Tree. Here he lurks in the underground shadows, until a passerby's torch casts light on him!

Amazing, is this scratchboard? I love it!

That has a high wow factor. It could have more if there was more depth, maybe by blurring the back and wings as they recede into shadow

This is great. The contrast and the sparse light bring it to life! The way, his eyes remain in shadow adds mystery and a touch of darkness to it. Good one!

Cool work Melissa! The light is very efective, brings the creature out very well. Love the textured details, well done!

Art at its best.
