Year of the Dragon by Emerald-Depths Year of the Dragon by Emerald-Depths
This is for the "Chinese Dragon" challenge at :iconmanipulatethis: --> [link]

Level 4

Not my best, but I tried to keep it simplistic in design. :B There couldn't be any shading, so I messed around with the artistic filters. :D

Just awesome !
but just my opinion, i would have overlayed the text on paper so that it has that it has more of an paper effect.
but as i can see there it no shadow allowed which makes everything harder.
Nice work indeed :D

I appreciate the feedback. :love: I understand what you mean, though. :D I tried playing with the text layer to make it fit more, but nothing changed. I'll have to see if I can try something else. :happybounce:

Real nice paint effect, and I do like that you let smoke comes out of his nose.
Well done :)
