A piece similar to phoenix striking the sky.
Not up to par with it though :(
I'll probably end up doing a v2 of this.

v2: Fixed up the dragon and the sky a little, added birds
--------------------------------------------
C O M M E N T A R Y :
Not too satisfied with the dragon, but apophysis didn't agree with me this time and i couldn't get something that looked even remotely like the dragon in this image. so stock it was. (EXTRACTING THE TATTOO WAS A BITCH, BTW.)
I'll probably end up revising it later or making a whole new piece altogether.

I'm guilty of treating the image like two separate images again :X

Original name was Dragon Grasping the Earth, but my friend (~inlustris)and i decided that sounded like a really really bad kung fu movie so i went with emperor instead.
--------------------------------------------
S O U R C E S :
Lots of stock usage this time. Even more postediting.
Planet's a rehash of textures from my alive piece.

Uh so I was bored and my mom still isn't home yet, and I'm watching ABDC. So I figured since this is dedicated to me, it should have my comments on it. :)

Naturally, I love it. The dragon still doesn't look like it's made of fire though, and you can't change my mind on that one. :3 I suppose you could say I resent that it looks just a little too much like the OTHER one's dedication, but I appreciate it all the same. :dygel:

Oh and :) This is probably the last time I'll use this account. LOL. I was bored and I love you. See you tomorrow! :3

Someone's a little slut. :no:

Anyway...I think this is great. :noes:

Although...I think that the dragon should have...maybe been made up of clouds. :P I think that would have been better. :paranoid:

But that's just me. :iconazublank: It looks good though, nice work. :iconazublank:

Psh...I don't dedicate things to anyone...it makes them think I'm attached. :unimpressed:

And it's actually fine, but if you can do the cloud thing, yay. :iconazublank:

I have to agree with Kurt, the idea is there, but the chinese theme with a planet above baffles me, though the dragon is a cool idea, if it was part of the clouds looking down on the bottom part, I think it would look significantly better.

But well done either way. :)

yeah that would be a bit too hard to do.

and the chinese theme with a planet above was the same theme for my other piece that got me a DD lol

I can understand that :) And I figured it would be hard, but I dunno, the planet seems a lil out of place to me, either way, the picture on the whole looks good :)

it feels like two pieces, but you get the sense it's supposed to be like that.
