:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

The black and white original for this was a commissioned piece for a private client. fav.me/d23fmq This version is because I am prepping for two very different shows in the next 2 months, and needed another "fantasy" piece for one of them. When this piece is finished I will be retiring the black and white version from my deviantART prints. This may take its place if there is any interest in it.

Update: There have been changes made with many more to come. This one is going to take awhile.

Update 2: This is to answer an anatomy issue that was brought to my attention. The concept is that the avatars are moving counterclockwise over a spherical surface surrounding the symbols. I hope this helps.

Update 3: Hind legs to shade, fur to do, then interminable scaling...........also I wanted to get the last update out of the gallery.

Update 4: An axiom for art: Applying scales to a dragon does take forever.............................

Update 5: Yes, I have been working on this, around everything else. There is a maquette involved.

And also the eight diagrams represents the elements of feng shui and the Chinese martial art of Baguazhang.

:D As I told Egil, "Yes, the client was a martial arts instructor at the time, and was very particular about the character placement."

nicely rendered. How did you come up with the I Ching combination? Is it from the client?
