My daughter, Rachael, drew a pencil drawing of a dragon that was phenomenal. I've done the coloring and framing work. (Which basically is another way of saying that she did all the hard work. :)) We hope you enjoy. Let us know what you think.

Nathan.. your daughter has some real talent.. great detail and shading.. the framing is sharp, yet subtle enough not to take away from the dragon itself.. fantastic job by both..

on a sidenote.. im actually working on sculpting a dragon now.. i will most likely show the progress here.. so keep your eyes open for them :D

This is fantastic work, what a brilliant sketch by your daughter. The bordering suits the sketch well and overall the image is perfectly balanced. I'll give it a 10, which you can split between you any way you see fit:)

WOW. This is some fantastic work. Can I make a request? Can I see some renders in other colors? I'm a big fan of blue, green, and turquoise... I would love it if you could possibly post another in one of those colors!

Top notches for this work!

It is an amazing thing when one knows how to put on paper by drawing...something in our minds...when I began painting I kept wondering if it really was "me" doing this, because I didn't know I could! Your daughter has a most beautiful talent. It is something for her and you both to cherish. It's a wonderful thing to share it with someone. The drawing is completely wonderful. And yes another colour would be good. I think maybe black paper with white ink...if possible. Fantastic drawing and photo and framing!!

This is a great presentation of an excellent illustration. I like both the original piece (and subject matter - I love dragons) and the work that you have done.

Your daughter is a very talented artist. Must run in the family. I missed the gene that gives the ability to draw and paint that my father, brother and most of my children have in full force. I am always awed by people like you and your daughter who have such wonderful ability, and I'm grateful that you have decided to share your work with others.
