The Story Glass

I've been fascinated by the big rose windows in cathedrals for ages, and thought I'd try my hand at a fantasy one... digitally, of course. I don't quite have the skill set to do this as an actual stained glass piece.

I tried to limit the color palette, to give the whole image a more unified look. Most of the old traditional stained glass windows seem to be quite heavy on the reds and yellows, so I steered away from those and focused more on the blues, purples, and greens, with hints of warmer colors. And figuring out how to make a black dragon look like glass was... interesting, to say the least!
