Soul Spark by Zephyri Soul Spark by Zephyri
So I've been sitting on uploading this forever. The piece was finished moths ago, but I wasn't 100% happy with it. An hour of tweaks and if I don't upload now, hell, I never bloody will. So here he is, my dragon prince, Kana in all his dancing, sword flashing, dragon-spirit glory.

I've always wanted to do a piece of him that's not so static, and after being uber inspired by the great Mr--Jack and his awesome collection of step by steps (not to mention one his sketches, the colour palette of which I've totally riffed off here), the sketch for this sort of fell out of the stylus, and minor end niggles aside, was fairly smooth sailing.

Done over lunch times mostly, so no idea how long it took - probably somewhere around the 15-20 hours mark. PSCS5.

Is that a Chinese Dragon? This work looks like an old story in China.The character is cool.

Thanks! The dragon's a little bit of a blend between the more sinuous eastern dragons and the beefier western ones :)

Your growth as an artist is simply breathtaking! As is the evolution of Kana - I am totally in love with this rendition!

Beautiful, fierce and delicious!
