This week's Illustration Friday challenge (from illustrationfriday.com) was "Myth." Couldn't let that one pass me by! Plus, I had extra time this week because my teaching is mostly on break for Finals week. Yes!
First off, I knew I wanted to do something with dragons. Then I felt like I wanted to do something Celtic knotwork-ish. Sketched around and came up with this fun little image. Thought it would be fun to have a lady warrior challenging the beast. I did the color and texture in a way that echoes the Book of Kells. The technique was pencil sketch scanned and then colored in Photoshop.
