Blackberry dragon by Ironshod Blackberry dragon by Ironshod
I've been working on a set of artworks with the theme of an enchanted woodland. It is just like a normal forest but if you go there and take the time to look closely you might find the creatures are a little unusal ;)

Here is a Blackberry Dragon. So named because they love to eat fruit and berries, and most especially rich juicey blackberries. He's cute but he'll bite your finger if try and tame him.

You can view some others in the set here ...

He looks awesome! Really nice idea, people are used to big-ass creatures when they hear the word 'dragon'. Well, not in this case!
Spectacular work. Eye-catching. I love it! And of course, I would give anything to have him as my pet dragon :)

Trying to decide if the dragon is small or those berries are huge. ;)

This little guy reminds me of a horse I used to have. There were blackberries growing along the back fence of his pasture, and when I'd go to collect some for myself - I loved to make sourcream-blackberry pie! - I had to keep pushing my horses head away from the basket so he didn't eat them all! (Lazy pony, he could easily have eaten straight from the bushes, but since I was picking them... ;) )

This little guy actually reminds me of a race of small dragons I thought up for a story I'm working on. I saw him and went "omg! it's a mirjhai!" (the dragon species) Very, -very- cool!

He is too cute! Every time I see this I just want to take him home with me! This is a truly lovely piece. All the nice little details such as the piece of the blackberry in his mouth and juice all over him, really makes this a real treat to look at

I love the detail and contrast of colors. It looks like it would be a huge, monstrous beast, but it would probably fit in the palm of your hand.
