2004 - Dragon of Water by Stratadrake 2004 - Dragon of Water by Stratadrake
December, 2004. The third entry in my series of elemental dragons, that of Water, now in her fourth (and final) incarnation. Obviously one of the most important elements, without which life would not be possible, Water rules not only the hydrogen-oxygen combination we all know and love, but also wields power over the solid and vaprous forms of water, as well as a limited share of power over other liquid materials -- including, as it were, volcanic magma.

Unlike the other elemental dragons, the Water element is characterized as a female, and this incarnation is a stark departure from her previous versions.

But did I have to choose the absolute most difficult angle to draw those wings from? Her right wing caused me no end of problems, until I decided to just declare victory and color her in as is.

Media: Colored pencil
Time spent: Five hours
Size: 75px/in at full-view.

Work-in-progress scans of this dragon, as well as a comparison to her previous (and quite different) forms, are available in my Scraps section, here.

Reminds me of a dinosaur, but can't remember which one. The shades and the angle of the head are awesome.
