Took me I don't even know how many hours to do. Baseless, pixelled free-hand.
This is a Fey Dragon or Sprite Darter Hatchling... whatever you want to call it. From World of Warcraft. Damn Alliance got them as pets in a Feralas quest chain. Horde got screwed (until recently :3 )
I have no idea how many colors I used. I'd hazard 80 or more. Hope you enjoy.
