(http://assets.cgsociety.org/nvart/236379_1212357249/1024bound)3dsmax was used for basic dragon model, without any color ... rendered image was then taken to photoshop and this is what i came up with ...

lots of basic shapes such as lines, circles (warped/pulled/stretched), soft edged brush strokes for smoke, finally ... fix ups, glows, color mixes, a little bit of edge shine on the 3d model ...
final size is 5333 x 3333, 32bit & 16bit color depth

i deliberately didn't add wings for the dragon, i wanted to make it look like more of a spirit of the dream realm filled with color and magic :)

cheers everyone!

i like the way this flows and the little bit of red and blue smoke goes well with the green...i only wish you went a bit further in suggesting the dragons shape...so that a veiwer would be able to identify it without you having to explain anything

Great color and style. I agree with lynch about the dragon shape, i think you should make the shape more like a dragon a bit, but overall cool image.:)
