In today's world, data is the new gold. Any modern dragon wouldn't be caught dead without a big mound of data in his lair. Thus, the data dragon.
This is my first attempt at painting a dragon and a mound of gold. The dragon came out pretty well. The gold, on the other hand, didn't come out quite like I wanted it to. I didn't overlap any of the ones and zeros which makes it look more like a sheet with a pattern of ones and zeros on it than a mound. The painting took about 4 months to complete.
