Illustration done for the new Ancient Greece themed card game, Monstrous.  I was invited to work on creature illustrations for this project along with several other extremely skilled illustrators including JohnSilvaTheRafa.  I hope you guys check the game out over here.

I notice that a lot of fantasy artists tend to interpret their dragons as archosaurs, despite their longstanding association with snakes. What interests me here is the way you played up both of these elements, without either of them getting lost. It could be a crocodile who became a snake, or a snake who became a crocodile.

Also, great touch with the blue flame. The contrast against its red hide is beautiful.

kinda reminds me of Glaring from the universe of lord of the rings, the first dragon.  I think its in the silmarilion but I could be wrong

Dude, you should send these in to Wizards of the Coast as MTG cards. The quality is similar to how they draw their creatures.
