Each of these four designs was created separately as individual bookmarks, and later combined them all together to form a tetraptych of all four seasons.
It started with an aimless scribble of a dragon in an upturned pose, which became Keesa. This black riftwalker dragon is at home in a winter snowfall, breathing steam into the cold air while a snowflake drifts down to rest on her nose.
Second was Sukozu, representing spring - but not the spring of bright flowers and butterflies. This handsome fellow is a storm dragon, and a lover of the sea, so it is only appropriate that his bookmark depict him beside a blooming spring storm by the seashore.
Third came Riavele, a desert dragon and a lover of the heat. His design depicts him at the height of summer. Speaking of height, here he is enjoying a spiraling flight beneath the blazing sun of his home.
I finished off the set with the curmudgeonly old red dragon, Kiljahka. He'd be grumpy no matter what the season, and doesn't seem to appreciate just how nicely the color of his scales goes with the lovely orange fall leaves!
