Slumbering Sky by Nambroth Slumbering Sky by Nambroth
The inks for this were originally a tattoo commission for someone. :) It was requested that the dragon have a similar pose as the rather famous gryphon illustration by John Tinniel: [link]

I later added the vines and greenery, and painted it. This dragon appears in one of my prior paintings as well!

Ink and Watercolor

Inn my opinion, what are dragons going to do, why not sleep in the sky as it were, at least it would not be disturbed by other wild creatures or humans at least. I like this classic pose myself from an old Alice in Wonderland Illustration myself, it has an appeal to it. To me the other fact is that this image being traditional,, and meant for a tattoo is a nice idea, also the dines this dragon is sleeping in, nice touch. :) :thumbsup:
