A studio in Japan named Kousyuuya, has four generations of artists that have perfected the skill of “Hitofude Ryuu.” This type of art demonstrates the artists ability to paint dragons with one stroke. The artist begins by painting the dragon’s head, then continues to the body with only one stroke. The artist pauses and turns the brush repeatedly and precisely for added texture and realism. Similar to calligraphy and ink-wash art, this skill and method is difficult to perfect. If you are interested in buying one of these amazing dragons, go to the studios website (link above) for more details.
