The Black Dragon
Another Dragon, this one was commissioned for the book by Shayne Easson over at Phantasy Ink.
Always a dream to be given Dragon commissions as pretty much everyone that knows me knows they're my favourite subject to paint. I've often contemplated why, and I suspect it's because they're both monstrous and majestic, sometimes even handsome. An odd term to use I guess, but it's the same phenomina that we experience with lions - dreadful killing machines, yet compelling and beautiful. Dragons, when painted properly have those attributes and a good deal of fantastical imagination. There's a certain freedom there, and I guess that's where I find the karma, the zen, of exploring that.
