Cat Dragon by matildarose Cat Dragon by matildarose
9 x 12, Watercolor, Ink, Photoshop

A piece I did in October 2010 for an online magazine called World of Myth. Persians are the funniest cats ever- they always look pissed off.

Jan 20th, 2013- Thank you, thank you all! You guys are wonderful. I've been looking through the galleries of those who commented and fav'ed, and I feel so honored! I may not be able to comment back to all of you, but be assured that I've been looking at your galleries!

September 19th, 2015- OMG, Grumpy Cat Dragon has fanart! spudfuzz.deviantart.com/art/Ha… Thanks, :iconspudfuzz:, for the wonderful b-day gift!

Cat Dragon by ~matildarose is definitely a cute illustration that will make you giggle and can wake up the inner child in you, like what ~Leynir said and as almost many people noticed, the details are also stunning as you can see lots of cats doing random things. Even one said that this is "PURR-Fect". ( Featured by jcroxas )

I've seen this shared so often in Elder Scrolls discussions that finding out it is not, in fact, intentional fanart of the Khajiit's chief deity is quite surprising.

I love this one! It reminds me a lot of a classmate, his dad, and their cat. :-) The cat-dragon could be either the red persian cat or my classmates ego, while the knight is clearly the poor father. :D
The details are amazing, thank you for publishing it.

Thank you for the kind comment! Yeah, persians are definitely delightful, though I prefer short-haired to long-haired anyday just due to the mess! Plus, my cat Winnie would get after me for not bowing down to worship her and her half Siamese-ness.

If I ever went on a magical quest, I would most certainly end up facing a cat dragon. This is perfect. I mean. Purrrfect. This piece reminds me of my sister. ...She likes cats and dragons. Very nice illustration!
