Shenglong by GENZOMAN Shenglong by GENZOMAN
Hi guys! Here goes a pic I done the last year for abdo publishing, based in a well knowed dragon: Shenlong. Dragon ball anyone? I must say: I love the first seasson of dragon ball (you know the one when goku was a little kid) a lot more than DBZ. The original serie haves a lot of adventure and humor and also, Shenglong apears a lot more because the whole show was about search for the dragon balls in order to be granted with a wish. :D, well a manly dragon need his balls back again, I can understand him... also:

"you must defeat Shen Long to stand a chance"

Lets wikiattack!

Shenlong, also Shen-lung, (simplified Chinese: 神龙; traditional Chinese: 神龍; pinyin: shén lóng, literally "spirit dragon", Japanese: 神竜 Shinryū) is a spiritual dragon from Chinese mythology who is the master of storms and also a bringer of rain. He is of equal significance like Tianlong, the celestial dragon.

The spiritual dragons are azure-scaled and govern the wind, clouds and rain, on which all agricultural life depends.Chinese people would take great care to avoid offending them, for if they grew angry or felt neglected, the result was bad weather, drought, flood or thunderstorms.

Apart from this Shenlong appears to a special ranking in splendid robes and regalia of Chinese emperors. He was also a five-clawed and therefore an imperial dragon.

Shenlong is also name of the unmanned space shuttle program of P.R.China. The scale-down prototype had made free flight test from a H-6 bomber flight testbed.

and of course... dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball, dragong ball :D

While Shenlong came from Chinese myth, the Dragon Balls themselves came from the traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism, specifically a relic called the Cintamani Stone.

Yush! Shenron!!!

Absolutely beautiful, but me being such a dragon nerd i must nit-pick at his hands: being in the description, not only Chinese but imperial, he should have 5 claws per "hand" rather than 3. O_< im so nitpicky but i love all of your art i truly do.

Beautiful!  ...He's missing a couple toes, though. >.>  Chinese dragons have five toes (Korean have four and Japanese have three).

I still love this!  VERY powerful.

I love Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and this picture. The only thing you could change is the color of Shenron from gold to Green like in the show.
SteveIrwinFan96 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012
If they do reboot the DBZ movie, I think James Earl Jones should voice Shenlong. Anyone agree?
Silverkitsune26 Featured By Owner May 30, 2012
Hmmmm wasn't Shenlong altso in the story the road west?? I think I remember something about that. Many of the dragon ball caracters are based on those in that story, if I remember corectly.

Again read the description, this is Shenlong who Shenron is based on. Two different dragons.
Islav Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2011
Okay I just searched that on Google and found out it can be said both ways, Shenron and Shenlong. Hm.
