The Legend of The Golden Dragon


Some readers of Dracopedia may know that I briefly mention the oldest known dragon in the world, The Golden Dragon of China, Tong Long Huo.

I have finished a painting depicting a climactic scene from his tale that I am currently writing. Keep following to read the story as it develops.

And don't forget to also visit William O'Connor Studios-blog
for a detailed demo on how the painting was made.

Enjoy

Thought I would share a recent sketch. Dragons and ladies are a theme that run throughout cultures and history. This one has a Chinese theme. No story yet, just developing ideas.
