The Princess meets the Ice Dragon by 1Rich1 The Princess meets the Ice Dragon by 1Rich1
My entry for :iconrealmofthedragon:'s Chinese Ice Storm Dragon contest.

"The blind princess felt the giant creatures breath, nervously she reached out with a shaking hand to touch the dragon."

This was a tough one to do I hope you like it :)

Thank for viewing!

I would be truly honored if you would allow me to use this pic in a Dragon's secret lives montage video. If you would say yes I will compensate by putting your name, screen or real if you prefer, on the pic along with the credits, and the description with a link to your DA page next to it.

It would make a really cool one-shot story or Manga. If I could write, I would!

Such a beautiful, whimsical scene! The sparkling colors on the scales grab my attention. This whole thing really pulls me in. I love how you kept it within a red and blue color scheme. This is such a beautiful illustration that would make a lovely book cover. :)

Haha they are actually in the zhulong (or pig) style which is thought to be the original design for chinese dragons :)
