This drawing depicts a temple structure enveloped by a dragon. To create it, I used pencil to first develop the general composition/layout, and then ink fineliner to shade certain portions of it. There are portions that remain unshaded, and others that remain shaded by pencil. This is an intentional choice to illustrate a lack of a complete and concrete presence.
