A fire crystal is a rare find indeed. Typically found in the deepest caves, or ancient ruins... or in the hoard of a dragon.
This piece took nearly 20 hours to complete, but most of that was studying anatomy. I want to be as good as the best artists out there, and to do that I needed to improve my knowledge of anatomy a LOT. I spent a bunch of hours studying nearly all the muscles in the body... except for the ones on the back XD
