Jazzdragon by beastofoblivion Jazzdragon by beastofoblivion
Jazzdragon commission for :iconrachaelm5:.

I apologize for the cramped, slightly misaligned and jpegified scan. It does not do the original justice, and I was considering not posting it because of that. But I can asure you it is quite blinding in person; towards the end I could only work on it in ten-minute segments because it would cause my eyes to cross, literally. I'd lose the ability to see what I was working on, where I was working on it, and how it fit in with everything else.

14x17", markers. And on that note, the most extensive marker piece I've ever done.
