Art: Enter the Dragon by Artist
Portrait of my son-in-law, Chris, who enjoys martial arts. I was looking for something Chinese to reflect the martial arts influence. Notice how the tail goes down his arm and turns into a tattoo.

I researched tattoos in order to find some dragon photo-references since dragons are rarely found in the wild. :O And almost never photographed.

I asked my daughter if I could borrow some of her tattoo magazines and she warned me that some of them were kind of rough. I told her I would try not to faint.

I painted this piece and never got the vapors - other than the paint thinner. I found several references and in the end, of course, just made up my own dragon.
