My Bio
Hello there everyone :) My name is Anne Stokes and I work as a freelance illustrator. My artwork has been used on many products including books, games, t-shirts, posters, jigsaws, sculptures, greetings cards and jewellery. I love the world of fantasy and being able to share my ideas and characters with other people through my art.

I post here on DA under the name Ironshod. Thats is a long story, but it seemed like a good idea at the time and now I'm kind of stuck with it ;)

I hope you will enjoy looking at some of the artwork in my gallery. DA is a great place with so many other creative and interesting people to talk with. Sometimes I do get rather a lot of messages and I am afraid I can't answer then all, as then I will have no time to paint new pictures! I do appreciate everyone who takes the time to comment.

Current Residence: UK
Favourite style of art: Fantasy

Idk which folder its in but I keep looking for a artwork of one of your dragon sculptures. Dragons with feathers as wings has always been my favorite and a store in Ohio was selling a lot of sculptures made by you. I bought the mom dragon with her tail curled around a egg and the baby dragon that came with her. She's blue and white and the card that came with her called her an Opal Dragon.

Hello, I love your artworks! You draw some very awesome gothic style art and your dragons are some of the best I have ever seen, they look so amazing and badass! You really understand what they are about and how to draw them rightly :) (Smile)
