Wheel of Elements by Iridestris Wheel of Elements by Iridestris
And they're ANGRY! :chainsaw:
Which element on the wheel do you like the most? Air has always been my favourite element, so he got top billing. :D

School project of awesome. I love Oriental-style dragons and I've been meaning to do something with them for a long time. I love the way this turned out, though I guess they're actually serpents, 'cause they got no arms!

Photoshop continued to show its determination in handling the largest file I've ever worked with- 400 MBs of doom. :fear:

Pencil on 12"x12" cardstock
Photoshop 7
Painter 9.5
All textures either come from my own photos or were created directly in Photoshop.

Oooh, very nice. And here I was just looking for a new wallpaper.

Usually I'm partial to water, cool, soothing and graceful yet destructive, but I'd say I like the way the fire dragon looks in this the best. All of them are great though, so amazingly detailed . . . . :omg:

Dang....o__O; I mean holy dang....I can't believe this. o__o;

That....looks so kewl. XP The dragon graffiti--now that is what I like to call original. :D Seriously, not kidding. Love the style you used--it looks so real! Much better than my recent graffiti project I uploaded on here. :lol:

Must :+fav:. :D And I like all the elements, personally. :) Kinda hard to pick just one favorite. XP
