Victorious dragon



This is the cover painting of my dragon calendar, which you can see more of here [link] and as you'll see on the cover the dragon is looking up at the title and the fire overlaps the border. The image also appears in full for the month of June.

The publishers chose this image for the cover as they thought the red of the dragon would be a good stand out colour on shop shelves. The picture originally had a celtic cross in the background but for the calendar I changed it to a stormy sky for a little added drama. I generally paint digitally which makes making changes like these much easier.

Hope you'll like it!

Rarrrrrrragh!!!!!! ;)

I saw this image once, on the cover of a Dragonlance novel.
