Council with The Elder Dragon by CaptainPudgeMuffin Council with The Elder Dragon by CaptainPudgeMuffin
This 3500x2800 pixel 2.49 mb monster took me approximately 24 hours scattered over a 3 day period to make. I increased the canvas size three times. Originally it was just gonna be a the eye and spike. But that seemed kinda meh. Didn't quite capture the setting or the size of the Elder Dragon.

Really not much story behind this. Spike went on a journey to learn about himself...again. But this time he seeks out one of the oldest dragons in existence. One that supposedly knows everything-yadda yadda yadda. Very cliche I know.

My favorite part of this is definitely the Eye. It was the first thing I drew and I gave it as much detail as I could. You can zoom in and see every muscle fiber in the iris.

Enjoy!

EDIT: In hindsight, 3500x2800, while ambitious, is a huge fucking waste of space and buffering time. Especially when most of that extra space is just black nothingness. So I cropped it down to 3500x2000. Really focused everything nicely and we really didn't lose anything...except my signature in the corner. Hang on gotta put that back in.
