Yep, love this one!! The Ice Dragon is amazing as well. ^^

I really want to draw a crystal dragon. Still a ways to go to learn how to draw crystals. -.-

Oh, I know that feeling all to well. So much of what you see here on DA is amazing. But I know how it took years for them to become good. Years of sketching and overtime they got better. 

I recently found a great tutorial about art in general: How to become an artist - Tutorial. Made me wonder if it is not to late to begin again. Then I decided to cheat and continue doing 3D because I am lazy. ^^

This makes me think of my Dad; he always used to draw dragons. I lost him unexpectedly in July 2014 and when I saw this dragon I could almost hear him say how "bad-ass" it is.

I don't know which store because it was given to me as a gift, but I did remember that the trophy's picture didn't have your autograph or whatever you put on the picture that marked it as YOUR art, so they stole the picture and are practically selling it for their money. :/ I feel guilty for even owning the trophy right now...
