How to capture a dragon by noah-kh How to capture a dragon by noah-kh
Hi,my dear friend in Da,im back,now im in beijing and preparing my collection art book and exhibition in China.i hope you're all well:),this is my recent work in Beijing.
How to capture a dragon. If you want to capture a dragon, one of the spirits of the nature, you will need all kinds of apotheosized props. Inside the "Fulongshen" (means string which is used for capturing dragon) that in the hand of three hunters there is an energy ball. The ball is refined from eyes of black dragon and black steel. When the soul chain of the Fulongshen attaches the dragonís horn, the energy ball will imbibe the nerve cell energy from the dragonís brain. The dragon will paralysis immediately and cannot move at the moment. Later, if you inject essence that extracted from "Fulongcao" (a kind of grass, means grass which can capture the dragon) into the horn of the dragon, and set its nerve cell energy back to the dragon, it will move again. But in the moment, you can pull the dragon following you. The injected essence is controlled by the "Fulongshen". Once the dragon tries to revolt, it will feel strong hurt in its brain.
In order to make the graphics looks in reason, we need to endow the apotheosized props with strong power. For the illustrations with scene, you also need to learn to give them reasonable definition and explanation. The interesting introduction that full of story will make your illustrations attractive. The illustrations with no points which only aim to fight and flaunt skills will become boring soon. The illustrations are just pictures. If you want to tell stories in them, it needs much more skills than drawing pictures. It includes not only conceiving graphics. All the every tiny elements in the illustrations will affect the wonderfulness of the story.

I've made a particular tutorial for this one and below is the Chinese version address: [link]

A big hug for S crowder who have translated the text of the tutorial from Chinese to english,here is the link.
[link]
but because i linked the images from the Chinese website.so im not sure the images could display normally.

In Photoshop Cs 5,about 14hours work,i hope you guys like this,thanks.
