No, its not a dragon its a Behir. An Abyssal Behir to be certain, with traits of his demonic nature flaring all over it.
this commission was a pretty challenging one. Its rarely that I get commission in which the focus needs to stay on the overall scene rather than on a character. So I took my time and enjoyed working on this one.

That dwarf might as well be dead.

Could be. But then again, second wind, healing magic or even raise dead... :P

I really dig the archer in the Cobra armor, really makes you want to know what his deal is.

Its just a set of magic armor I personalized it to make it look like a snake. I mean, when the armor has some sort of name like "the serpent's skin" or something like that, kind of make you show that in the armor's design somehow. :D

Lol, I remember playing this module. 

...my character found himself in the position that dwarf is in right now.  Poor Clive, RIP.

Well, the puppet died. Hopefully at least the puppeteer had some fun. :D

Oh, quite, though there were other modules I liked better.

And having fun in such an innocent way is what's best in life. I'm sure Conan would agree if he would know about d&d. :P :D

Definitely.  Even if he would disapprove of how few barbarians I've played :P

Though ironically, even my most evil characters really wouldn't have cared for the "lamentations of their [broken enemies'] women".  Most of even them cared more about breaking the enemies themselves, or the end goal.

Just as long as you enjoyed the game, that should be enough. :)

Hello, your work is great, can I please use this design for a non-commercial project, citing you?

Unfortunately this illustration was made for a magazine thus it can't be republished, otherwise I would have gladly allowed you to use it. If you refer at the Behir's design 'tho, you have my permission to use it as an inspiration.

Haha, wings... as if a Behir needs any limbs.

Its an abyssal behir. The wings are just vestigial wings. Obviously they are of no use to him. So....

I love how the Behir looks like he's glowing from the inside. Awesome piece.

Thank you, that was the idea. Its not an usual behir, its an abyssal one, full of fire on the inside.

Hehehe :D It was at least one of their most memorable battle. Their DM ordered this for them. They must've done good.
