Dragon University by kawaiihannah Dragon University by kawaiihannah
Fiiinally done. I started this back in March, but I've only been able to work on it in small bursts.

The idea for this piece stemmed from a dragon description generated at Seventh Sanctum [link], which was centered around a green dragon, who liked to help non-draconic races and had a hoard made of historical documents/maps. So of course, he had to be a university teacher <w<

I'm still not sure how he'll manage to give that scroll to her. Or did she somehow give it to him? XD

Edit // Wow, thanks for the DD!! ^^ <3 <3

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Little Jackie paper loved that rascal puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on puffs gigantic tail,
Noble kings and princes would bow whene'r they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flag when puff roared out his name. oh!

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

Dragons live forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant strings make way for other toys.
One sad night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.
Without his life-long friend, puff could not be brave,
So puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave. oh!

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.

This is amazing. Love 
I can imagine the boy in the back corner being Jack (from the beanstalk story) and the girl being Rapunzel. As if this is where all storybook characters went before the big event that got them into the books.

I don't know about that blue raccoon in the corner though. :D (Big Grin)

I'm sure you'll do well! ^^ You already have a lovely gallery and your chibis are so cute ^0^ <3 <3

The way I normally approach something detailed is to do it over a period of time - digital painting is quite useful, because lots of details are implied and not fully rendered. It makes it look more detailed than it really is, if that makes sense XD

WoW thank you soooo much for the encouragement and tips :love: !! I am currently looking for tutorials/books on digital painting, but I haven't really found anything that covers the basics and advanced things. I'd be really grateful, if you have any recommendations in that direction :heart: :D ! I am also always looking for new drawing programs to try out. I tried SAI, MS5 (the one I am currently working with) and PS (I am no good at it xD) and soon I want to try ArtRage and I'd really love to give Painter X3 a shot :D .

Spike is a young dragon from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. He's mostly purple, but maybe dragon's colors can change as they get older? I dunno.
