Fire breather

This dragon likes things hot :) It started off as a simple silhouette, but the addition of a few more details on the dragon's scales and light shining through the wings has hopefully made it a little more interesting.

Painted in Photoshop.

I just need some ROAR sound effects now to complete it ;)

I'd really love to have this one as a statue. I can already see with my mind's eye how awesome it would look.

Fire breathing dragons are so difficult to tame. But I wouldn't mind having one as a pet.

Looks like he just won a battle but took heavy damage from the mere mortals known as man! RROOOOAAAARRR!

I really like this beautiful dragon, but there's one little thing that I have to say:
There is light falling through the holes in the wings, but not from the rest of the dragon, if you know what I mean.
The dragon's silhouette would be much more defined, if you did. The dragon would look as he is really standing in the light...
But it's stil a great painting, I can't make something like this!
I like the way how you made the wings semi-transparant, as you can see the shoulders from the dragon!

It's one of the best pictures of dragon I've ever seen. it's so wonderful how you can show light, fire and all the effects that make it so real! I saw this picture on book's cover in bookshop yesterday, it was great :)

Are you familiar with the Dragon Stories of Anne McCaffrey ? I have read several of her stories - the dragons fly "between Time" and there is a "Thread" that attacks Dragon Wings - burns holes - this guy looks as if he were attacked at some time - have you ever illustrated some of her books

The holes in the wings suggest that the dragon has been in battle recently...maybe he's roaring because he was victorious?
