Dragons Lair by Ironshod Dragons Lair by Ironshod
Enter the dragon's lair if you dare!

My aim for this picture was to paint a classic image of a powerful dragon. I thought that a red dragon would make an aggressive looking creature, and is a colour that will sit well alongside the golden treasure and dark cavern. Skeletal remains are scattered on the floor to show the fate that awaits any treasure hunters rash enough to take on this beast.

An article about how I painted this picture is published in issue 50 of Imagine FX [link] Out today in the UK and Europe and elsewhere in the world next month.

I hope you like it :)
