Balance - Color WIP by keight Balance - Color WIP by keight
: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.

Thank you very much. I very nearly lost this one forever last fall when a subcontractor triggered a computer crash which caused my RAID array to erase itself. Apparently he didn't believe that I owned my own business; until he saw my license after he fried my system.

Did I mention that he no longer works for the company that sent him on our job?
