The Karp Jumps Through The Dragon's Gate by SeanDonnanArt The Karp Jumps Through The Dragon's Gate by SeanDonnanArt
The text says: "The fish jumps through the Dragon's Gate". I based this fan art on the old Chinese legend that Magikarp and Gyarados were inspired from; a carp that didn't give up swimming to to the very top of a waterfall, against everything thrown its way, could transform into a mighty dragon. A strong message of hard work, perseverance, and courage to achieve something great - values I hold dearly. I hope you enjoy this piece and just maybe it gives you the inspiration to persevere in your endeavors!

this is awesome! My left arm has a koi transforming into a dragon tattoo, based on what happens when it passed through the dragons gate! Will you be offering prints of this? Very well done!
