Petrified by JJcanvas Petrified by JJcanvas
Hi everyone! Finally a new personal image :p  I've been doing a ton of freelance work but I can't share most of it yet!

Been doing this one on and of for a long time...10 minutes here, 30 minutes there.. I just can't look at it anymore :p
The composition is very basic but I did learn a few things in the process

Cheers :)

nice one! you should have a look at this other deviant user:

ryky.deviantart.com/

he has a similar gallery of dragons. 

It also reminds me of a novel about a witch , daughter of a dragon, but I can't find its title...

Very stirring. I love the tiny birds around the dragons head, showing just how immense a beast it was and how far our journeyer has yet to travel.

It's amazing how all of your amazing Artworks remind me at the one or other video game, in this case I feel a heavy Dark Souls vibe from it :D

I love your art for this! And apart from that, as well for the amazing art style itself! :)

"So ended Stegalos, last and greatest of all red dragons.

His body turned hard as rock as he stood in the valley, never to break free.

He yearns for death, but there's nothing out there that could kill him.

The spark of thought within him grows dim. And finally... silent."

The dragon was waiting so long he turned to stone. See, this is what happens when the player fools around with sidequests instead of following the main plot of the game. Bosses just die and petrify out of old age...

I started this image so long ago that in the process the dragon did in fact turn into stone (he was a living dragon in the first sketch, no joke!)! It's what happens when an image waits so long for the painter to return to it! The world turns to stone and ashes :)
