A gift for my friend Racktor of her dragon sona, Rackiera! This was originally going to be a portrait, but I figured I do a lot of portraits and not enough full-body dragons, so I ended up with this. c: I'm happy with how it turned out, and I look forward to doing more like this in the future. They're really great for practicing lighting!
I didn't time this one super reliably, but I'm estimating it took around 8 hours. Photoshop CS6.
