Doran the DragonLover by aussie-dragon Doran the DragonLover by aussie-dragon
Finished in time for Emily Rodda to see! So happy about it too :la: :la: :la:

Okay so I'm meeting Emily Rodda tomorrow (sept 1st) and I wanted to do at least a little fanart for her to sign or look at :meow:

And we all know how much I love drawing and painting dragons so here is Doran the DragonLover or Dragon Friend as the Deltoran dragons refer to him as :la:

And he is with Fidelis, the topaz dragon :heart:

Hope you all like and I really hope Emily likes it too! :heart:

Mediums used:
Windsor & Newton watercolours
tiny bit of colour pencil

NERDGASM! That is awesome. I love Doran, and finally someone draws/paints him. About time! Thank you. You definitely made my day :D

You shold actually try to do a serious adaptation of the Deltora Quest series a graphic novel >.> If it have to be a web comic. I would love to help with that, as I am an aspiring sci-fi, fantasy, mystiscm writer :P

Emily Rododa / Jennifer June Rowe ftw :)

Stay creative,

I loved reading about Doran in the third series!
Oh.. I think if that was to happen I would have to ask the permission of Emily Rodda.

Thank you ^^ I'm planning to draw more Doran with the dragons

Any kind of fan fiction that are 100 % non-profit is always legal until the original create approaches you and asks you to stop. Besides, I am sure she is a strong supporter of such things. However, i you practising...who knows? Maybe some day, you'll make a legal official one (not like the manga that was produced with the anime) :D Would be great ;)
You can do it! ;)

Stay creative,

Hi. It's me again. I know it's been very long since I posted those comments. Of course it'd be best to seek permission or buy the rights first if someone wanted to a graphic novel of someone else's work. I just hope you keep drawing Deltora Quest fanart :D Maybe you could redraw Doran in a more realistic style, like the Topaz dragon in this painting. It's Fidelis, isn't it? Or is it an unnamed member of the tribe?

OMG You're meeting Emily Rodda? That's so exciting! I met her when I was too young to appreciate it...
This is gorgeous, they both look exactly as I imagined them. I think she'll love it.
