Once Upon A Time by Ironshod Once Upon A Time by Ironshod
This is a new artwork that I just completed for my 2014 dragon themed calendar. As the months unfold the images will tell a story, but for now I'll let you, the viewer, decide what will happen next :)

I love the emotion! It appears as if the girl is kind and the dragon is trying to be mean but failing! So sweet!

Would you do a cover for a book if yes what would it cost? It is for a book about Dragons. Part two of three or more

How do we decide?  I think the girl should discover the dragon is her long lost love and she is really a dragon in her true form.  She's trapped in a human body by a spell cast by an evil wizard.
