This is my illustration for this weeks art challenge over at [link] , topic being "war of dragons".


Painted in Photoshop 6.0 using a intuos 3 wacom tablet, no reference of any kind used. 3 evenings spent.

"The ancient battle between firedragons and icedragons.
Ever since the morning of time, they had fought for control of the world and for the power gained through the people worshipping them.

Once the mighty leader of the firedragons was defeated, they cut off his wings and banished him from the world. So it was that the icedragons reigned for thousands of years, hunting down the remaining firedragons, one by one.

But it was said that when the constellations of the three moons were right, their leader would come to their rescue to defeat the icedragons..."
