The light plays off of the lotus flowers and the dragon is finely detailed. The dragon’s main is flowing and the scales on its body are supple and smooth. With great use of color, the flowers jump off the skin and frame the dragon excellently. The use of gray makes the entire image take on a different feel and look.
Also notice how the dragon’s body loops back up, with the tail ending on top of the shoulder. Great scale and placement of all elements.
