After 4 months, I finally am able to do personal work. I came up with this dragon design out of frustration while sketching some red cloth. Red is a difficult color to master for me so I set out to paint a red dragon as practice (and I thought it would look good on a t-shirt). Since this is supposed to be practice (and a small t-shirt design) I painted this at 5x7", and brought it here at full size.

I also painted this to try out a more "Donato" painting style. It is similar to how I prefer to paint, but his medium is a little different than my typical. I also painted on gessoed panel when I prefer canvas. All in all, I enjoyed it a bunch.
