Noble Dragon by Ironshod Noble Dragon by Ironshod
A while ago I painted an artwork called Dragon Lord

The idea behind that picture was a long forgotten castle which was once owned by the Dragon Lords. The kingdom had crumbled, time had moved on, and the dragons were only a distant memory.

However in this follow up painting that I have just completed, a new lord has appeared, with a mighty dragon at his side, and the glory days of the Dragon Lords may return once more :)

I hope you like it :)

Dam it, your work is too outstanding to just leave. This is a watch I must do. And if anyone argues, the next thing they'll know is their head shoved into the dirt ground trying to get out by me. :icondragonspif:

I bought a t-shirt with this painting on it, although it was slightly modified - it had no person on it and no background like in the painting itself.
And then I came across your gallery and saw it on there! Love this painting, and your work in general, by the way. :)

It is rare to see portrayals of dragons with human(oid)s that neither portray them as the villains nor as somehow subordinate. I'm thinking of the old "dragon rider" trope here.

Even if I didn't like it for aesthetic reasons, I would like it for those.
