Dragon Goddess by Rabbit-Edge Dragon Goddess by Rabbit-Edge
"East - the Blue Dragon, Spring, Wood; Planet, Jupiter; liver and gall(Mackenzie)."

"One of the oldest symbolic animals, stylized forms of which are a feature of the decoration of ancient bronzes cast before the invention of writing. In complete contrast to Western mythology, however, Dragons are rarely depicted as malevolent. They may be fearsome and very powerful, and all stand in awe of the dragon-kings, but they are equally considered just, benevolent, and the bringers of wealth and good fortune. There are, of course, legends of the various immortals battling against evil dragons, but such monsters would be foreign ones. Local dragons are to be respected, feared, and petitioned as one would petition a just and honest ruler. For this reason, the dragon symbol is the sign of authority, being worn on the robes of the Imperial family and nobility.
Dragons are generally considered to be aquatic, living in lakes, rivers and the sea, the larger the expanse of water, the more powerful the dragon. Nevertheless, there are dragons which inhabit the heavens, one quarter of the sky being called the Palace of the Green Dragon, in reference to the stars which in Chinese astronomy constitute the constellation of the Dragon. Even so, the appearance of the Dragon constellation is said to herald the rainy season (Walters)."

This is one of the 4 Gods of heaven and Earth though I decided to make a female version of all 4 Gods.

I tried to combined the red with the aquatic blue feeling. I had reasons for it. I decided that the red kimono dragon represents the next God which is the Phoenix.

It's really hard to do this kind of concept and it took me months to finished this because I'm lazy.

I also want to say that you might notice her right hand is a little bit big. I really did it on purpose because usually dragons have big hands, and I just don't want to make the female all just looking beautiful.

Tools: A4 Watercolor paper, Prang and Reeves watercolor.

It really is beautiful and the colors all go. The story behind the it is nice also. The hand is a bit big, but it goes with the whole dragon-god thing and doesn't look out of place.I think you did very well.
