Oak dragon

I hope this is fairly self explainatory. This is a dragon that lives in Oak trees and it's body is designed to camoflague in with the foliage.

In my spare time, when I am not working on art commissions, I am producing a range of wildlife style takes on different dragons. This a fairly slow process as I have very little spare time but eventually I hope to enough for a book, or at least a calendar!

I have had some other ideas for how these Oak dragons live and look. I think having eggs that look just like acorns would be cool and I could paint a dragon curled up on a little twig nest filled with them.

I painted this picture in acrylics. You can see some work in progress images of it in my scraps section.

I bet that anyone who had an oak tree with an oak dragon in their yard would never, EVER have a problem with squirrels XD

I've seen many dragons over the years, and this is one of the finest. Love your 'Oak' association, since forest dragons have been around for a
very long time. I assume this one is English?

Perhaps you'd like to share your work on our society pages.

Yours In Fire & In Flight,
