Childhood dreams of dragons and flying.

We fancied doing a couple of dragon themed wallpapers for our Patrons. You can find a high res version of this illustration there!

I had a lot of fun drawing those clouds. Had a hard time working out how to do them at first, but they turned out nicely!

This single picture tells a fascinating, interesting story, with many gently intriguing details.

I really love this, it's so relaxing to look at and Jáhko looks really cool as a dragon.

Hahah! Thank you!

Unfortunately, it comes down to time and money at the moment. I have several other unrelated projects that pay my bills and it means I simply don't have time for Tistow right now. :( If that changes in the future, I'll go back to making it. Small Trolls updates once a month right now and it's all thanks to our Patrons.

The clouds did turn out very nice. Love the lighting and movement in this piece and the simplified detail is nice too.

Cheers! ♥ I wanted to leave the strokes a bit sketchy and not render it to oblivion, so I hope the effect works in its favour. Good fun this!
