Zombie Dragon by E-V-IL Zombie Dragon by E-V-IL
One of my favorite paintings I did for a Dragonlance sourcebook, I believe ( will have to double check that...). The blue line drawing was done originally by my good friend Scott Hepburn. He has a very distinct, cartoonyish style and I believe I had to take his line art and paint it more realistically ( its been a few years so cant be certain). Regardless, it was a blast to do and turned out to be one of my favorite paintings. Was done in Painter 6.

Hope you like it too!:)

WOw, this dragon is AMAZING, I'm actually making a huge 2-meters-long dragon mixing zombie with steampunk (like, if you gave a dragon's corpse to Dr. Frankestain, that would be the result) and I'm seryouslly going to get some inspiration (expecially the way you did the scales, that was amazing)

Never thought of or seen a zombie dragon before. Very cool!
I also really like the ribs sticking out so far in addition to the tattered muscles

Great piece! I sure hope a dead dragon can't feel pain anymore 'cause this looks quite painfull! Creepy. I wouldn't want to meet this guy in some backalley (plus: I wouln'd survive anyway ;P).

But I have to say the Ripcage is a bit off. Since it's a dragon normal anatonomy doesn't fit but it still looks displaced. (sry, hope you don't mind such comments since you wrote that this is one of your favs *hides*
