A piece created for Issue 17 of Digital Artist Magazine.
I painted this while sick and against a deadline, so it was completed blearily and blazing fast for me. The piece is loosely based on the myth that old wise koi swim up the celestial river to become dragons. This guy just became a dragon and his buddies are having a party to celebrate!
Smashed hard in Corel Painter X. Prints are available and they look awesome.
