Winged companions

After a long day flying around these two winged companions take a rest in a forest glade.

.... or maybe you have another idea for what is happening in this scene? Comments and ideas are always good to read :)

Painted in Photoshop. I really like painting dragons but sometimes all those scales can be hard work!

Huge thanks to Elandria for the figure reference [link] that was a great inspiration for this image.

I love this!  This is my take on what story is behind this picture:

"A curse has robbed the Dragon of its flight.  Abandoned by its own and hot with despair a final visitor arrives.  She gifts him her own power of flight and the fallen angel becomes the first dragon rider."
I found this years ago, and have been using it as a desktop background ever since. I am so happy that I now know who did this amazing work!

[link] Just thought you should be aware. I have reported the theft.
It's not theft. He just made a better version that's all.

It's theft: he took an existing design and modified it without the artists consent. He did not create his own original piece, but visually and obviously ripped this one off. That's theft. According to the rules of this site and according to copyright law.
