Long long ago-Chatadar 1997 by jaxxblackfox Long long ago-Chatadar 1997 by jaxxblackfox
I found this old painting and since it's still one of my favorites I've desided to share it. This is Chatadar's early design~ no large fins attached to those spines on her back, and her spiral horns weren't very pronounced yet. Done with acrylic paint on an 11"x14" canvas, way back in 1997. She's supposed to be landing on that giant boulder just as a storm is moving in, thus the fog and rough seas.

I thought this was traditional!
You might want to change your "digital art" option to traditional so people know right away, this is magnificent!
