So I just got permission to post this, normally I'd wait a bit, buuut as it turns out I'm avoiding dealing with some things and needed a distraction. Soooo you get art.

This was one of the illustrations I did for Talisman: The Dragon for Fantasy Flight Games last spring. Fun project!

All photoshop 7 at an unrememberable time span... nothing too horrendous though.

Hopefully a few of you dig it :)

*************
Also since this can be an issue with dragon illos - reposting/editing/molesting this image in any way is bad and will end with legal issues with Fantasy Flight Games due to their ownership of the image.... this will also give ME stress, which I don't need more of at the moment. Look at it. Flirt with it a lil if you must. Maybe even buy it a drink (or buy ME a drink). Buut it's taken.

Hi Chris!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work in a post called July Birthstone Dragons II by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course, even to Fantasy Flight and the game, which I own).  I love this dragon, and your discussion about why it's red in the comments!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the great work!

Hey thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I guess this environment isn't very good for the dragon... there being so many red things in nature to camouflage oneself... but hey, it probably doesn't care a ton.

Lol maybe its a bad idea for the dragon to be there... he isnt going to catch any fish... but its just nice to see a refreshing background for a different colour dragon :)Keep up the good work! :D

It probably wouldn't be very comfortable, but to each their own.
