Large collection of ASCII art. Still waiting for the dragon section to finish loading! (My original note when I found this in 2004).
There is big collection but it’s not available without using the Wayback Machine now. I had contributed some of my own art here and it is still there. (Tends to happen on sites that wander off into never never land). Too bad. But, change is good too, sometimes.
I came across this flappy dragon today while working on an another unrelated ASCII. I was hoping it would turn out better in ASCII.
The body shape is ok. The face is too small for it. Wings are always tricky and I never get them quite right. But, I can try again another day.

It looks like a gargoyle dragon to me. I like the face. The body is harder to figure out. I’d use it as an ASCII art dragon but I’d have to put my own spin on it to get the details for everything but the head itself.
Ring probably made for a man, but a woman can also wear it. Very strong Antique vintage ring for man or woman. 14k yellow gold, cabochon chrysoprase. Made in China circa 1920-40.
Chinese design. The entire ring is moulded as a dragon on one side that metamorphosizes into a snake on the other side. The heads are on either side of the bezel, which contains a colette-set cabochon chrysoprase, looking like jade and is a deep green color. The dragon and snake are modelled in high relief with marvellous detail such as the bulgy temple-god eyes of the dragon and the tongues of both snake and dragon. Curling tendrils and flaring fire from the mouth of both of these animals. The legs seem to crawl and creep around the shank of the ring and to hold the gem, which is like a huge egg. The shank formed partly by the bodies of the animals.
