This is an interior illustration for the Pathfinder Chronicles: Dragons Revisited (OGL), Paizo Publishing, LLC.

Great opportunity to have a bash at reimagining the core Dragons for the Paizo setting. I feel a great honor to have drawn creature that have been part of my mythology for 28 years now. Glee!!

Hi Ben!  I just wanted to let you know that I featured this piece in a post about Pathfinder on my dragon artwork blog Writing Dragons (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I hadn't figured out my notification protocol back when I first shared your art, sorry for the late comment!  But I love your work, and my site is all about promoting artists, so I hope you'll stop by.  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the amazing work!

I love this dragon, excellent work. Everything from the fringe to the scaling is just perfect.

I have a strange question but I'd like to try to make a Halloween costume to look like this for my Malinois. Would you be willing to give permission for such use of your design? If not I totally understand.

I would be very happy for you to make a costume based on this dragon. On two conditions: Firstly that the use of the costume is for non-profit ( I know it is, I just have to say that:)) and secondly, please send me a photo of the costume. I would love to see what you make:)

Cheers Ben

thank you very much, do you happen to have this one with a transparent canvas?
BenWootten's avatar
BenWoottenProfessional Digital Artist
No I don't have one with a transparent BG, it should clear cut pretty easily.

alright, i can try to use the cut tool or use the white as a "green screen" to import it into the image

Are you using Photoshop? The wand tool will help a lot if yo undo.

Im going to use photoshop to cut away the image then give it a transparent canvas to use in adobe illustrator

I Love this Dragon, doing personalized plates on my car, I would love to see if I could use this dragon and have it wrapped on my vehicle Drivers side, completely for my own pleasure as well as others just seeing it. If it will fit can I use it?
