Satellite Dragon

This will be my first modern, digital contest entry when I am done with it. There is still a bit to be done on this piece, mainly in shadows and light definition. The contest is on deviantART and the theme is "Fantasy/Science Fiction Fusion." I came up with the idea of a dracoform satellite. Satellites aren't too science-fictiony these days, but a mechanical orbiting dragon might be. Its wings are solar panels and it has a nuclear reactor inside the body cylinder. Dracoform, depending on its level of aggression or belligerence, would either destroy space junk with its atomic fiery breath, or go after enemy satellites or even astronauts.

"Satellite Dragon" is all digital, Photoshop CS4, 11" x 8 1/2", July 2010. Click on the picture for a larger image.
