The Celestial Dragon by Ashere The Celestial Dragon by Ashere
The dragons of heaven are nothing like their poor earthly counterparts. Slumbering for hundreds of years beneath the waters and sands of China, they command great powers in their infinitely long life cycles, freed from the shackles of biological need and necessity, closer to god then beast, and closer to unknowable chaos then either. 

This is loosely inspired by BPRD's Scorched Earth trilogy. Guy Davis designed some very eel like dragons for that excellent series, and I liked the idea and ran with it.

Is this Imoogi?

It could be! It's meant to be an interpretation of general asian dragons, but not any particular type.

Well, it does look a lot like Imoogi in his celestial dragon form. And no, I haven't seen Dragon Wars yet, but I have heard a lot about it.

Amazing drawing and concept! So kind of like semi-benevolent cosmic monstrosities, huh?

Let us say not actively malevolent.

Holy Crap I love the colors!!! I had something totally different in mind when I first saw it, but this is so much better than I had ever visualized!

Something like a greenish-gold, similar to what a moray eel would look like mixed with an albino python. But that was just what sprang to mind when I heard "celestial", "eel", and "dragon" in the same sentence.
