My entry for the Flight Rising: Something About Dragons Contest. This is Shadowbinder, one of the gods from Flight Rising.
The original design may be seen here [link]
Shadowbinder belongs to ~neondragon
, art belongs to me.
Winner or not, I learned a lot doing this piece. Neon has always been one of my major inspirations in dragon art, and this picture gave me the opportunity to further observe her work, only to admire it even more.
Gradient shading, where have you been all my life?
