He’s flying in a figure 8 because eight is a lucky number in the Chinese culture. The word for eight in Chinese sounds similar to “prosper” or “wealth”
Red is a symbol of good fortune and joy
Yellow Gold symbolizes neutrality and good luck. For this image I used a metallic yellow gold ink.
The flaming pearl carried by a dragon also symbolizes wealth, good luck, and prosperity.
The five clawed dragons are known as imperial dragons associated only with royalty.
But if I was going to be really precise, Chinese dragons are only supposed to have 117 scales, so this guy has a few too many!
