This picture was commissioned as a wrap around novel cover. Dragons flying over a city was a fun subject to paint
By tilting the angle of the horizon and zooming in on the dragon and rider I have tried to created the sense of flying. The dragon riders were described as looking similar to Native Americans, hence the feathers and costume.
Some of you may have already seen the sketch for this painting that I posted in my scraps section
First I sketched out this picture in pencil and then I coloured a scan in Photoshop.
Hope you like it
