Lunar Magic by Ironshod Lunar Magic by Ironshod
I haven't been able to post anything here on DA for ages as I have been doing loads of artwork for Wizards of the Coast on their 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons, and I am not allowed to show it until the product has been released this summer.

Anyway here is a dragon! :)

A design style image fully of magical symbolism - I hope you will like it. Any ideas on what spell this dragon is about to cast? ;)

I've actually had this hung up on the wall above my drum kit in the form of a scroll nows for quite some time as my drum kit also faces toward the wall to stop it from creeping all around my bedroom which is also my studio , 

Ive also previously had a couple of other pieces of your art works actually blown up to full A4 poster size and framed after having searched practically everywhere for with out success as well as framed a couple of posters of yours I had also come across in my travels of doing so,around that same time,

Which at first upon discovering your artwork thought to be very inspiring

Which I have ultimately from an original perspective found in turn to have inspired me which seems to reflect somewhat somehow in the music  I seem to originally create , 

Which in reference to your question feel has actually helped me being quite a good spell for me anyways , 

Which I feel to me personally symbolises the summoning of free will sprit and creativity 
to merge fourth and be set on a free flight of never ending possibilities and yet to be explored new horizons , 

i know it may seem or sound a little bit nutty but have also previously experienced vivid very real like dreams at such times,
To which I have at that same time herd music playing in the background to which I had actually at that same time also not really thought nothing of being a common as muck commercial radio song or melody at that time , 

To which I have discovered only upon my awakening whilst I grow more aware of my current surroundings start to realise whilst such memory fade such a melody ,tune or song diminish whilst I come to terms with the fact of having never herd anything like it here in this relative dimension of awareness before , 

Or so it would seem anyways

None of which melodies of potential songs I claim to have created so far to be amoung them , 

Not that I would know of course ? But then again in relation to them being as common as muck is something at least that differs

To get more of a perspective of where it is I'm coming from in turn if so by putting such sound to such words I emphasise in its infancy as well as picture if interested

Please feel free to check out some of my creations at qwackers on Soundcloud ,

Not forgetting of course who's picture or pictures it is I'm referring to originally whom I feel have helped me as an influence of such venture  or ventures as a result ,

Ive also previously added comments to of how such ideas originally came to light as well if interested which can be viewed by clicking on profile picture and then clicking on read more , 
Thank you

Only one word for this: EXQUISITE!!! I just LOVE the pentacles, moons, the whole piece! I just wish I could have him (or her) as a pet...on second thought, maybe it's for the best that it's just a picture; between the food bills and the litter box...:=)

Love the pagan symbolism. :)


Imma guess the dragon is casting a mind control spell to make me fave this.... It's working.

Sorry to bother you, but I have one question. One of my customers asks a sculpted copy of this picture. Specifically, of the dragon. May I do this?
armyvetwolf Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
love the hue of the dragon intertwined with the pentagram!
pearlpoison Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2011
I hope you like this.

Full moon, tonight's the first,
Time has come, to cast the spell,
To still the crimson dragon's thirst
And lock him up in hell.
Once the magic is done,
He will be forever gone.

Old words are chanted into the night
Borrowing from the moon its magical light
Eternally, the 5 elements chain him in the dark
Leaving in stone engraved, a distinctive mark...

Very nice! The contrast of the red and yellow dragon with the turquoise pentagram is very eye-catching.

He should cast a spell that would have him come to life. And be mine. Forever. Absolutely amazing, as is usual with your dragons. :w00t!:

Looks like he's going to move any second! He should cast the spell of realism.

Prety nice work but it hides many religious messages. Dragon usually refer's to the antichrist, "the beast", and the symbol behind(and in the other part's of the picture) him is a pantacle (pentalfa)used by those who believe in satan as theyr's god. Also, if you turn a pantacle upside down you can see a random perimeter of a demon. The full moon is also used by the follower's of satan and when it apperar's many sadistic paganistic ritual's take place including sacrifices.Wizards of the Coast produce card games with demonic, violent pictures and i think they have a reason for that.
EmbrynStormcat Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011
hahah, all that shines is not gold, hon. it is true that the dragon is 'demonized' by christianity, and indeed the pentacle turned upside down IS used by satanists. but the link you make between paganism and satanism is not necessary, and the pentagram has far older roots than that - it was seen by the ancient greeks, with their mathematical idealism, as the representation of perfection, as all the proportions in the symbol come down to the golden ratio, it can symbolize anything female because of its connection to the planet venus, which would appear to draw this figure between the stars due to retrograde motions. it can represent the five elements or the five senses. a symbol means only what it means to the person who uses it. I wear a pentacle necklace - point up - because the rules of wiccanism appeal more to me than the laws of the other religions I know of: an it harm none, do as ye will. I am not a satanist, nor a real witch. one more thing: ritual sacrifice long not always means killing something. it can be just an offering - fruit, or wine. christians don't really drink jesus's blood either, do they?

maybe a love spell, the moon does have such a lunar attraction!!

THAT DRAGON LOOKS AWESOME!!! I don't know why, it just seems AWESOME.
stickopotamu Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2010
I saw this picture in a book I have, called 'the fantasy art bible' and I thought my friend would like it cos she loves pictures of dragons, so I was looking up dragon art here on DA and I loved the water dragon one so I had a look at your profile and recognised the name from that book and found this! What a coincidence, I must just love all of your work :)

Although I'm a Christian, I love the use of colors in this.
679 Featured By Owner May 26, 2010
And the picture in general.
