UPDATE: Got this fella scanned in and fixed up! You may all now enjoy him the way I do. :D

Once I get a better pic, I'll replace this one. It's crooked and driving me crazy...

Was really glad to get the chance/excuse to break out the watercolors. flygirldavies was very patient with me on this. It was SUPPOSED to be something simple and quick. I... May.. Have gotten carried away. But it was a lot of fun and turned out pretty well. I've got the perfect place for an actual stained glass panel like this. Maybe one day I'll actually have one made. :D

Media: 
Watercolor

Alternative titles considered: BBQ's Ready, No Dwarves Allowed, Warm Welcomes, Chef's Special, I Wanted It Well-Done, The New Oven Heats A Bit Unevenly.

The other titles just didn't do justice, because they were too humorous for something so majestic and honorable.  I love this work of art!

I love everything about this. The colours, the design and the fact it's an epic fire-breathing dragon.

People should make this a stained window in a church. Wouldn't it be epic to have this above your front door?

It’s definitely a goal of mine to get this made into glass. I’ve even done some research on artists who could do it. Now I just need a suitable place for it. :D

oh that would be super nice! As a suitable place I would suggest every possible window in your home (yes I am that much a fan of this work :D). It's sad I rent my home and am going to move soon, otherwise I would have offered my home as suitable place :P

I sell prints of it, if you’d like a hard copy. :D Usually, I just sell at conventions, but if you like it that much, I don’t mind shipping one.

Aw that's kind of you :) I actually bought the cross stitch pattern by pinkythepink and am very excited to start it in December :D

Hiya!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work in a post called Dragons in Stained Glass by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I love this piece, and I even featured the cross-stitch version you approved, it's such a great design!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the great work!

Oh, cool! You've done a really nice article, there. It's really cool to see so many stained glass dragons (plus a stained glass Dalek!). Thank you for the crediting, too! (And even links to my tumblr!) Ashley's cross stitch is a fantastic adaptation, too, and I'm glad to see folks like it. She had a real challenge matching a watercolor painting with embroidery floss. :XD:

Thank you so much for telling me about your article!

I feel like this should be made into a form of stained glass

That is definitely the plan to have done at some point! :D

Could I maybe attempt it out of tissue paper and construction paper? it looks like a fun project to attempt if you let me use this as a kind of template.

As a personal project, I don't mind. :D Show me how it turns out if you do try it!
