The Pearl by slyeagle The Pearl by slyeagle
Pencils and Photoshop CS5

Yes, this was done in graphite, then scanned in, color corrected, and DA logo added.

In Chinese myth and symbolism, the dragon and the phoenix are complementary opposites. Please vote for this design by clicking "I want this!" under the Fav button. Thank you!

Thank you! Probably the only original idea in this! :lol: I kinda feel like I should have left the DA logo as is instead of spherifying it, but too late to change it now.

Really great job on the drawing part! :o it must have been a hell of a work to do it! It has so much details! and the last feather on the tail of the phoenix are blowing me away! Very good expression of the lines! You have my vote for that! :dummy: Maybe some light wouldn't have been bad to make the illustration pop up from the background a litlle. But great design ;P

This is simply stunning. Amazing work, Sly! I particularly like the dragon's cute little webbed feet. :3 And the mane, and the feathers, and and everything! I really hope this wins, I would totally buy one.

Never mind, I figured out how, but it's a pain in the ass. You can't vote on this page, you have to follow the link to "browse and vote", which doesn't take you to this image, but to the first one in the gallery. So you have to flip through pages of deviations to find the one you want. Except that I said, "Screw that!" and searched for yours by title and was finally able to vote.

It seems to me that the deviations listed earlier in the contest gallery have a huge advantage over the others...

You can vote for it by clicking the "I Want This!" button directly under the "Favorite" button. You can also vote the way you did. ^^;

The "I want this" button was not showing up on your page for me, I don't know why. I looked everywhere for it and refreshed the page. It was on other entries but not yours. I was like, "RAGE!" But it's there now, so it makes me look like an idiot. I blame dA.

I can't figure out how to vote for it, or I would. I don't see any buttons or links allowing me to do so...

I love this! I'm not sure if the glow/shine on the pearl works with the 5-colours rule. I really hope it does, though, because I'd love to have this as a shirt :D.

I think it will because it's an optical illusion. The pearl is the same color as the dragon, and the DA and "glow" part is empty. I should probably update this to show that there are only two colors used.
