Daughter of the dragon by sarriathmoonghost Daughter of the dragon by sarriathmoonghost
This piece I did for the school's artshow.
I did it several months ago and I finally decide to not be lazy and scan it XD
I still remember the artshow is a stressing event we have to work so hard and it's only two days DX damn

EDIT:

well I think I might want to put some explainations on here.

"Dragon Daughter" is literally translated from the word "Long Nü", which is a mythological being/character. She/it appears both in religious writings and folk tales. Sometimes she is depicted as a deity who takes form as a child and guards Guanyin with another boy, Shancai ([link]). Sometimes she is a myterious spirit or demon. In modern depictions she is usually a young woman engaged in mortal love affairs, which is really not supposed to happen since she is an immortal being, the daughter of the dragon king.
Now I think about it the story of Long Nü is really similar to the Little Mermaid tale. Anyways, I was just fascinated by the idea of an underwater palace, which reminds me of the story of Atlantis. The oceans were always a mystery to me, and sometimes I get goosebumps just by thinking about what might be under there like.
