Hi all! I just finished this less than an hour ago, and wanted to share! I've been working on it for quite a while!



It is 18x24", the girl and the dragon are colored pencil, while the background is chalk pastel.

My aunt found a picture in a magazine of a tiny ceramic figure and it was totally my style so she brought the page to me and said "Ali, I want you to draw this for me!" and so I agreed. I finished this just in time for Christmas, so I can spray it tomorrow (along with a charcoal picture that's been needing to be sprayed for a while now) and then give it to her on Christmas. I do still owe her a smaller charcoal piece (about 11x14") that's half finished, but she'll love this one so much that she won't mind if the charcoal is delayed a bit longer.

That figure is based on Jasmine Becket-Griffith's artwork. You might like to look at more of her stuff - it's so cute.

I've seen those figures - they don't do justice to her actual paintings.

You're welcome.  Smiley I've bought several of her prints for my daughter's room and I always look forward to seeing her at DragonCon every year. She's such a sweet person.
