Artist's Comments

In ancient times, Wax - Dragons have been known to humans as sources of great wisdom.
Some of their body parts consist of wax elementsand are very weak to physical attack. Thus those parts are covered with a transparent shell (specially the chest area - horns and parts of the head).
Due to their great weakness and the fact that they are not meant to fight but rather serve as sources of inspiration and advisors, they have been driven very close to extinction.

It takes a long time until a Dragon of this kind makes friendship with a human being. A symbiosis which is however essential for their survival.
They are creatures of snakelike, delicate appearance and feed only on plants. Their character is very tender and protectful which in terms makes them even more vulnurable and weak.

Once a Wax - Dragon has found a human companion it stays loyal until it's death.

That's the little background story I had in my head ever since I started painting this.
Photoshop CS2 from start till finish
I used some really out of focuse yellowish references of my hands for this (unfortunately I don't have nowhere near as slender and delicate hands like she does now and I don't have long nails at all >_<Portrait of a Wax - Dragon by *Kyena(Deviant ID) Wink
Other then that - no references or material used for this.

another one i added to my favourites, Laughing all the art i post is in my faves on deviant except xillian queen Laughing its too disturbing for me to stare at it all the time so i decided against it even tho it is gr8.....wat i love about this piece is how the dragon (which i would think of as an untamable creature if it existed) seems so soft & sweet, he allows the woman to caress him and the details in the pic are really very pretty, like on the veil the woman wears, the flowers and the dragon's eyes make him so adorable, i want to stroke him too but reading the story that prolly wouldn't be possible Smile....

This ones for GEO...now this really has DRAGON written all over it XD
