Dragons dragons dragons oh my

I was never really into drawing dragons. Even when I did, they always looked like crap. But only recently, I took an advice from French artist JS Rossbach on turning big blobs of scribbles on a canvas into wonderful shapely figures. Since I was at work and only had my sketchbook and a mechanical pencil, I decided to try this method. After some random scribbling of squiggles and scrawlies I observed the mass of graphite blob on the paper, and slowly like thos 3D Magic Eye pictures I saw a wonderful image appear, which I then refine with ballpoint pen:


Now, suddenly, drawing dragons isn't so tough anymore. :D
