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 :)

Mind if I write a short drabble? It just seems to inspire me in a different way...

"How long did you think you had been sleeping? A century? Two? Maybe three perhaps. I assume you would had noticed things had changed when you raided that town a week ago and brought back with you electrical appliances among other shiny things.

I dare to venture into your lair, sir, to inform you have earned our ire with that attack. By the old kingdom and new republic, by all the gods of this world, we will no longer let you or any other of your brethren make us cower beneath the shadows of your wings, ever again. We shall have our revenge, for all that you have stolen from our land and our people over the millennium, in gold and lives!

Allow me to show you just how far we have come while you were gone..."


--- Colonel Daniel Deadshot, Republic of Avalon army, before a strike team of soldiers rushed into the cave and fired a barrage of rockets with their Dwarven manufactured shoulder-mount launchers. The dragon died minutes later with gaping holes in its chest.
