It's not often that I stop to think about where I am with my work.

I have a long way to go yet, and much more that I want to achieve and be able to do, but once upon a time creating an actual fantasy book cover was a childhood dream. Now, I am painting the very things that made me pause and pick a book from the shelf because it had an awesome looking dragon on it (I was easily swayed by dragons, admittedly).

Onwards to more personal achievements!

His pose suggests that he's saying "oh my gawd! it's an angel!"

I kid I kid.

In actuality, he's thinking. "Oh my gawd...they really exist."

Wow, what a great cover! Lots of details, I'm not only loving that dragon, but also actually kinda afraid of it!

That awkward moment when you want to go to the library, but it's about to be crushed by a gargantuan dragon...

Awesome drawing! L. Rowyn must be very pleased to have such an epic cover for their book!

Going off how stunning this cover is and what you said in the description, I'm going to keep my eye out for this book it sounds amazing! This looks brilliant too, the colours, the flow of his hair and outfit, and the overall look of this is utterly stunning! Brilliant work!

Gosh! That's a really imposing-looking dragon! O_o Even more grim than the infamous Ender Dragon from MinecraftWink/Razz 
I'll keep this in mind, "Silver Scales". Reading the seventh Harry Potter book in English was a twist, and this might well be too. :D (Big Grin)
