Orientals by KatePfeilschiefter Orientals by KatePfeilschiefter
For my Dragons Across Cultures AP project.
Japanese dragon top, Chinese bottom.

The main difference come from the subtle variances in their cultural depiction. Aside from the number of toes (Japanese have three, Chinese have four, Imperial Chinese have five. Korean and Vietnamese can vary.) Japanese dragons tend to be drawn with longer faces, bushier eyebrows/mustache and a lack of mane.

Worked on for five days, about 5 hours per day.
The texture was made by soaking wrinkled sketch paper in coffee.


11x14 vellum, graphite

EDIT: Wow, this came out of nowhere. I was confused why all of a sudden I had thousands of activity messages and now I see why. I never thought anything of mine was DD worthy. I'm so glad you guys like it. Thanks!

Suggester says: "Its circular composition, simple color scheme, detailed inking, and textured background are quite beautiful. This is a print I wouldn't mind hanging in my home."

I like the Japanese dragons, I prefer the longer snouts and the crazier expressions they're often depicted with.

It always annoyed me a tad when people get the two different dragons and their cultures mixed up. Its great to see a correct presentation of these two. :clap:
