A midnight stroll through space, surrounded by the stars of constellation Draco.
A green ectoplasm tentacle that can extend as far as the galaxy spreads is unleashed from the creature's claws. Being able to absorb and force information through the tentacle, it feels his surroundings seeking for injustice. The scorpions of Draco are fierce and cunny beings with the most righteous intentions. They reside in the depths of space, hidden, seeking the unrighteous.

Context: Being born in the year of the Dragon and the month
of Scorpio, the thought of drawing a combination of the two had
been long on my mind. How will I balance the image for both the
scorpion and dragon to show it's strength? I like challenging myself
and sharpen my skills. The idea was inspired by childhood colourbooks
with images that combined parts of an animal into one, and you had to
guess which animals were in the image. I've always loved those images!
