Winter Dragon by deskridge Winter Dragon by deskridge
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

A white dragon perches upon a snow covered tower of rock.  He looks over a mountain range that is locked in a cold perpetual winter.  Stretching his wings in the frigid wind, he gazes into the crystal clear blue sky.  As he exhales his frosty breath drifts away into the air.

For this image, I was wanting give a sense of that super cold air one experiences in the high altitudes of the tallest mountains.  So I used as cold a palette I could come up with. I added the white dragon as a further symbol of cold and frost.

Note: the creation of this image involved the use of purchased products

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP

Wow! This is so awesome!  You should've been the designer for Smaug. I didn't like ol' Peter Jackson's choice at all. Nice :)!

Very nice! I like the steam from the nostrils. Physically, he reminds me of Draco from Dragonheart.
