Water Dragon 2012 by feng-gao-long Water Dragon 2012 by feng-gao-long
So again, my work colleagues in Imaginary Friends Studios really helped me out working on this one.

*******

jadi ceritenye, senior2 kerja gw di IFS keroyokan ngasih tips ini itu utk project yg satu ini.


I always describe a Dragon Lady (females born in the years of Dragon) as a powerful yet charming one. I tried to depict those characters into a tall, bold, stern figure of a chinese goddess with heavy hair ornaments stating her godly domination, holding a smoking pipe which represents the masculinity of relaxing habit, while sitting in clouds, watching the Water Dragon she has released from the Heaven to give bless and prosperity onto the Earth.

Gong Xi Fat Chai!

OMG This look so lovely!
The feel of it is sort of something from ancient folk lore!
Are you planning to do one for 2013? Its the year of the water snake!

Yes, I'm planning to make another artwork for the year of the Snake. Maybe like 1930s painting to fit with the Snake's glamorous character.
