RIP. Your books helped me improve on my digital drawing more than anything else, and your dragons are just plain amazing.

Rest in peace dude. Your art was my favorite and I learned pretty much all I know about Photoshop painting from your incredible books. Thank you.

I wish I had courage to walk up to your table at GenCon in 2016. I'm sorry I didn't. I had forgotten my copy of Dracopedia and I knew I didn't have any money left to buy prints, but I still regret not walking up and just telling you that you inspired me to refine my dragon work. You and Todd Lockwood were the foundation of my inspiration to improve my dragon themes and push my art in the beginning. I can't express adequately how hard this hit. I'm sorry for the loss your family endures, and the art community lost an amazing talent. If souls exist, I hope yours is at peace, among the wonders and dragons your mind created in life. :heart:

Are you making a forth Dracopidea book called" Humanesque Creatures a field guide to Humanoid Mythical Creatures"?
wocstudios Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2017
That sounds like a great idea and I have thought about something like that, you should send a note to the publisher requesting it.…

A fourth Dracopedia Book titled "Legends" is due out in 2018.  Follow along for more announcements and give-aways at Dracopediafacebook

Hello Mr. O'Connor. I've been seeing you're artwork everywhere, and recently purchased one of your books. And let me tell you, within the day-and-a-half that I've had it, I have already read through it 30 times. The depth and precision that you put into your artwork is amazing:). I especially love your Naga design.
I would highly recommend your books for any, and all fantasy lovers. This being said, I'd rate it with five stars Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!
